Calendar:  

Friday, November 11 – Dinner at Belle Isle Restaurant    

                                   Winter Show Reception

Friday, December 9 – Christmas party

Thursday, January 12 – Program, elections, medallion contest  

On Friday, November 11, we will be attending the Winter Show opening at 50 Penn Place Gallery, which will be held from 6:00-8:30 p.m.  The gallery will serve wine and cheese and crackers; since participating artists are no longer bringing finger foods, those who wish to will meet at Belle Isle Restaurant for dinner first at 5:00.  The restaurant is just west of the gallery there in 50 Penn Place.  Call Glen (488-4662) and let him know to save a place for you.  (This is in lieu of our regular November 10 meeting at Contemporary Arts.)   

At 6:30 on Friday, December 9, Glen and Ginny Thomas will be hosting our Christmas party.  Save the date; details in the December newsletter!  

During our January 12 meeting, we will not only elect officers for 2017 but have our medallion contest that night rather than trying to have it at the Christmas party.   All of our current officers have agreed to serve again next year; the slate will be in the next newsletter.   

Coming soon:  

Starting in January, we plan to send the newsletter by e-mail, saving time and money and enabling us to include features such as photographs which are costly in a printed publication.   We have e-mail addresses for all but a few members; if you have an address we don’t know about, please send it to dmarseilles@cox.net. 

Directory update:  

We welcome new member Dian Church, 5130 E. 108th St., Tulsa 74137, dianchurch@cox.net, 918-853-6595. 

 Member news:  

From Phyllis deQuevedo: “I was nominated and approved for new status with Women Artists of the West this year. I can now use the designation WAOW Master Member after my name. In 46 years WAOW has only had 17 Master artists in the organization so it’s truly a career honor.” … From David Nunneley:  “I picked up my statue of Sequoyah and placed it on its pedestal last Thursday. The name plate will not be ready until the 9th of November and dedication to the National Board and Patrons is scheduled for Nov. 10th. It will be available for view to the Public on the 11th and is located in front of the new Gilcrease Research building across from the Thomas Gilcrease home.”  …Burneta Venosdel said she is extremely busy with the Ben Johnson Monument project in Pawhuska and concerned about the funding needed to complete the project (they still had $100,000 to raise as of October 22).  Also: she recently achieved signature status in American Plains Artists, Women Artists of the West and American

Women Artists. “I am honored and humbled to be in these organizations. “ …Larry Waid tells us he won first place in 3D art at the TAG (Tulsa Art Guild) show at the Hive Art Center in Jenks. He also displayed and demonstrated with TAG during "Art in the Square" held October 1 at Utica Square.

Et cetera:  

From former member Susanne Cox Bradley: “I am teaching Beginning Sculpting on a drop-in basis this fall at Imagine Music and Arts Studio in Norman. Like us on FB!  (Are you all on FB?)” …Glen Thomas tells us, “We have 12 sculptors with 19 entries in the Winter Show.  Please try to come to the opening after dinner at the Belle Isle Restaurant.”
