Dear members, An Executive Committee made up of The Board of Directors will be running the board meetings until vacant positions are filled. Currently, the board needs a president and a vice president. Any SAL members interested in filling these two positions please contact Dick Massa or any board member. The board is considering moving the meeting time to the evening hours to accommodate any prospective new member.
These positions must be filled soon.
The next Board of Directors meeting will be on Wednesday November 2nd, 2016 at 10am. Members are welcome to attend all board meetings and to express opinions and offer ideas.
Board Executive Committee
Artist of the Month - Linda Abbott TrappReception • November 12th • 4-7:00pm
During the ‘60’s and early ‘70’s, Linda operated a pottery and weaving studio in La Crosse, WI, studied serigraph production and sculpture, and taught numerous community classes in clay and fiber. In addition, she owned a supply shop for pottery and weaving. By 1973-74, she was teaching art in a mission school in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Her experiences there led her to redirect her career into counseling, with an international emphasis, and she earned a Master’s from UWla Crosse and a PhD from Iowa State University upon returning to the U.S. Having returned to California in 2009 she returned to her first love, art, and has held a number of onewoman shows. Her work has appeared in regional and national juried shows, and garnered several prestigious awards. She offers basic Watercolor classes as well as Slaying the Dragons, a class designed to help artists overcome insecurities and jealousies all creative people face.
Whether I’m working in wood, watercolor, or another medium, I’m exploring the boundary between art and psychology. In painting, I most closely follow the style known as Lyrical Abstraction. Rather than represent the surface of things, I want to provide insight into what’s underneath, what motivates and matters. I’m happiest when, in addition to illuminating psychological truth, the work speaks to environmental and relationship concerns as well. In short, my art is meant to resonate with both inner truth, the psychological, and outer truth, being in the world in a responsible way.
Demo Artist of the Month - November 10th, 2016
The drawing classes with Raoul Mora have been a huge success. It meets every second Thursday from 3:00-5:00pm at the Elsie May Goodwin Gallery.
The next session will be on perspective. Please bring a small still lifesetup to draw from if you want to participate.
Getting back to SAL’s roots which started as a critique group, we will reinitiate what was known as The Third Eye by Gail Hazard who was our President from 1960-1962. This was a meeting of members wherein they would bring a painting they were working on or recently completed and have the group go over it to see if there were any improvements that could be made. Serious art students will tell you that many times you learn more at critiques than sometimes doing.
Raoul will conduct the critique at the near end of our drawing session, so bring in one piece of your recent work as well as a pencil and paper for the drawing portion
We have been tagged yet another time. This is the fifth incident and was done during daylight hours on last Saturday afternnon. We hope to get it removed soon.
It appears that our present water heater has quit on us. It will probably have to be replaced. If that is the case we might be asking for donations to help pay for a new one. Stay tuned.
SAL members showing for the next three months at the airport are: Nancy Thomas, Ines Leontiev-Hogan, Jessica De la Torres, Bobby Wall, Charlene Martin, J.C. Strote and Jun Jamosmos.

It may then be replaced without additional fee. Displays may not be changed nor entered after show is hung without consulting Aleen, Gallery Director.
