The June meeting features our
annual Members’ Art Critique night. This year our artwork
will be critiqued by George Kozmon,
an internationally collected artist best known for his monumental
architectural paintings, which have been widely exhibited and
critically acclaimed throughout the US and abroad. This is always a
very popular meeting and many members take advantage of this
opportunity. Our members are requested to bring only one
picture to be critiqued .....or else the meeting could last all
THANKS TO ALL

illustrator, Cristal Baldwin, who drove all the way from London, OH,

thrilled to have her demonstrate Creative Colored Pencils. Thank
you, Cristal, for coming all that way. Members and guests enjoyed
her presentation and were very impressed with her talents. Do
