Happy First Day of Summer

A gel print from our May meeting

We hope everyone is having a great summer so far. Are you making art? Traveling? Whatever you are doing, have fun.

Our May meeting was a fun hands-on meeting making gel prints. Big thanks to Jo Diamantes and Patty Bertsch for presenting, and to Jacqueline Sullivan for the loan of gel plates so everyone could experience this way of making prints.

Soon, the Guild will be setting out schedule for the upcoming year. If you have anything you would like us to present, please feel free to reach out and let us know. In the meantime…
