Invitation from The American Impressionists Society

On Saturday, October 28, 2006, the area members of the American Impressionist Society will be having a plein air paint out in Harrisburg, as well as other areas of the US. We are in the process of planning an exhibit of the works completed that day and possibly showing member’s works from this summer. All members of AIS are encouraged to bring along a guest who may be interested in participating or learning more about AIS.

The local members of AIS should have received postcards with the paint out notice by now but we are asking your organization if you would post a notice, on our behalf, with the information below. Anyone interested in participating should contact the appropriate AIS member for more information.


Kathy Busillo, Vice President, AIS

Trying to catch up........ I'll upload two images in this post. One is from the Lake Nuangola Art Walk that Joanne spoke of earlier. It's oil on panel 12 x 16". The other is from yesterday --an 8 x 10" that I did at the Abington Middle School. Cody went along with me and we had a great time. Today we went back to the park near the State Hospital. I didn't have any panels prepared to paint so thought I would do several sketches but Cody developed a limp soon after we got there and I had to bring him home. Gave him a baby aspirin and after some rest, he seems better. Tough to get old! Sorry the photo's a bit fuzzy--I should be rich so I could pay someone to do this stuff for me.

Lake Nuangola Art Walk

Hi All,
Here is my painting from the Lake Nuangola Art Walk. Phyllis and I had a lovely day painting on Saturday and participated in the Show and Sale on Sunday. I wish the owner's of this boat had come to the show! We had the best painting weather! Sunny and not too hot - just wonderful!

Glenburn Art Show

Hi All,
Glenburn Township will be hosting an art show and sale of original paintings by local artists. The show will be held at the Glenburn Township Building located at 3110 Waterford Road, Dalton, PA and will run through the month of October. The opening reception will be on Sunday October 1st from 3-5pm and is open to the public.

Entry Criteria:
The theme of this year’s show is “Artistic Visions”. This theme allows artists to chose from many different types of works including but not limited to still life, landscape, portraiture, wild life, and abstract art. Works can be plein air or studio paintings. All painting mediums and photography will be accepted. The number of works allowed for each artist will be determined by the amount of available space. Each artist may submit up to 4 works. Framed artwork should not exceed the size of 40 x 40 inches due to space considerations. All entries must be appropriately framed and wired for hanging. Any artwork not appropriately framed will not be accepted. All artwork will be subject to review by the hanging committee and will be hung at the discretion of the hanging committee.

Artists from Lackawanna and surrounding counties are invited to participate. Drop off of artwork will be from 9 – 12 noon Monday through Thursday the week of September 25, 2006 or by special arrangement with Township secretary Joanne Benson. Pick up of artwork will be November 1st and 2nd from 9-12 noon or by special arrangement with Joanne.

Since there is no entry fee, each participating artist will be asked to donate a finger food for the opening reception or, in lieu of food, a $10 donation to be used towards paper goods, beverages and advertising expenses for the show and reception. Monetary donations will be accepted when you drop your painting off. Food will be accepted the day of the reception and can be dropped off at 2:30pm the day of the show.

Please contact Joanne Benson at 563-1177 or 563-1951 for more information and an entry form.
