A Portrait and Figure Group will be meeting Aug 17 at New River Library in Wesley Chapel. Model fee is $ 30 between participants so the more the better.

Old Business- Carrollwood Cultural Center Show: Members were asked for feedback and concerns. Among them was it was not open to the public due to summer camp restrictions and the reception was sparse. A letter will be going out to Paul Berg, CCC director, voicing some concerns from the board. 

New Business:  Members present were also asked for feedback and opinions concerning summer breaks and programs for meetings. Most are interested in continuing through the summer without breaks. Programs during this month are not necessary. Artist just want to meet and gather. 

A concern was made that the General meetings are not advertised in local papers. Concern was also made for the lack of notice sent to members prior to upcoming meetings. (Announcements are made via our website Meetup, Facebook and an emailed newsletter is sent the week prior to each meeting.)

Suggestions for summer programs were projects for good causes and another panel project to donate or sell.

Show and Tell and Featured Artist: The members had open and unlimited time to share their work. Votes were cast for those participating in Featured Artist. The winner is Virginia Butler. Congrats!
