Various News & Updates

The Orchid Society Flower Art Show at the ABQ Bio-Park: Original guidelines stated that artworks could not be sold. After some discussion with the Orchid Guild and the restaurant at the Botanic Garden artists will be allowed to sell their paintings during the show.

• The ABQ BioPark’s Botanic Garden has invited CPSA-DC219, to participate in the 2012 National Public Garden Day at the botanic garden. Mayor Berry has been asked to sign a proclamation for May 11 recognizing the importance of public gardens. Better Homes and Gardens is including the garden on its website as a location that offers free admission for the day, if the pass from BH&G’s website is downloaded. We would need volunteers to submit artwork to be displayed, man our table and hand out our brochures, as well as a member or two willing to draw publicly around the park (which really wouldn't be much different than our meeting back in January).

Please contact President Jeff if you're interested in participating in this event.

Don't Forget! Our next meeting will be ON LOCATION at the Masterworks Show, on April 28th. We will be drawing from Life, choose between a model or still life presentation, or both!
