Message from the President
WOW! That was quite the year, right? I am quite glad that it is over now and that we can look forward to a much better year ahead (hopefully). As always with this time of year, one is expected to make a couple resolutions and I think SWCA should do the same. Let's put forward some goals that can be achieved and celebrated when done. Here are a couple of my suggestions:
1. Every SWCA member gets one other person to join our club this year.
How to do this? If you happen to see an artist at a market booth, or meet people in an art class, or if you go to a gallery show, tell them to check out SWCA's website: swcartists.ca
If your kids or grandkids (over 16) enjoy art or if you have friends that enjoy art, suggest that they join. If you are on social media, suggest that your media friends check out our website. Those are just a few suggestions, I am sure you can think of more.
2. We complete our next art book adventure.
How to do this? First, go through all your past paintings and see if any of them have captured Alberta in a glorious way, or paint a new creation and send it to email@example.com. You are able to send in up to 5 paintings of any medium. More information below.
3. We meet again in person!
How to do this? Well.... I have my fingers crossed and I hope you do too! I am sure that once the weather gets nicer, we can plan a few more outdoor get-togethers. This resolution can definitely be achieved!!
"2022" has a nice ring to it. I remember volunteering at Bingos when I was a teenager and one announcer used to put an image to each number he called. For "22" he used to say "double ducks". So for this year we can think of three ducks swimming calmly throughout the next 365 days. I hope it will be a wonderfully creative year for you, with good health and happy times ahead!
