The annual SCTAL Christmas Party will be held December 12th, 6 - 8 PM at the Hallet Oak Gallery. The pot luck dinner is looking delicious with two main courses, several veggie dishes and some scrumptious desserts! We're planning a delightful game, but it will cost six one dollar bills to play. Winnings could be big! Everyone invited to play, but just look on if you prefer...

John Wright gave an impressive presentation on architecture at the November 14th meeting. Beginning with photos of work by early 20th century Modernist architect Antoni Gaudi, Canadian-American Post Modernist architect Frank Gehry and other artists he segued into Organic Architecture. Organic Architecture, exemplified by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, harmonizes and and is enhanced by its environment. The program culminated with a video about Fay Jones, Wright's apprentice and architect of the beautiful Crownthorn Chapel in the woods near Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Thank you, John, for a very informative program. THANKS ALSO to Wanda Wright for a most delicious spread of refreshments, including homemade tomato jam, a variety of crackers, cheese, and salami and delicious homemade cookies!

Thanks again to Bob Weiss for providing sound and video equipment for the meeting.

​We had a good turnout for the SCTAL show at the Lavaca County Historical Conference on October 10. We had 10 artists showing. Thanks to everyone who helped set up and break down the exhibit. Thanks also to the Hallet Oak Gallery for the loan of their easels and for two paintings on commission at the gallery.

In case you have had trouble hearing at our programs you will be pleased to know that Bob Weiss (our unofficial technical guru) is providing clip-on microphones for our programs. Thanks to Bob!

On-going thanks to Dianne Appelt for the excellent job she is doing in reporting on meetings and advertising up-coming meetings!
