Lynn Rattray opened the meeting and welcomed everyone.  She recognized last years’ officers and those on the NTAL Membership Show Committees.  Good news, awards and upcoming shows were shared by the membership.

Officers reports were given:

Treasurer - $2,238.94 (does not include show fees), Members:  50, Not Renewed:  18.

Events:  Maureen absent.  Lynn announced that our next General Meeting will be at LEC and will be a hands-on meeting.

Publicity:  John spoke about upcoming show publicity.  We have had one news article in the Tribune and expect another.

Joan gave the May Membership Show report.  We have 29 artists entered with 128 pieces of art being submitted.

Joan passed around the brochure for our Membership Show for input or changes.

We had a short break before the start of our program.

The program, “You Be the Gallery Owner”, was to be presented by Maureen Murphy.  In Maureen’s absence, Joan Garcia put together a program and participants presenting as artists were:  John, Francine, Emily, Gary, Lynn and Joan.  Other NTAL members acted the part of gallery owners and asked questions.  It was a great session which we had fun with and all learned a few things.  A discussion about pricing brought about the possibility of a future program about how to price our art.

Sandra Vann presented her new cookbook which contains recipes from fellow church members and photography by Sandra. 

The meeting was adjourned at 9:00 PM

Respectfully submitted,

Dorothy Banker
