Here are 6 updates regarding events of interest to ESAL members:

  A big Thank You to Dottie Troxler and her husband, Bill, for making the final Nancy Alm Memorial Plein Air event a wonderful experience for those attending.  Although the numbers have dwindled over the years, this year’s event was a memorable and enjoyable experience for all, and especially for those who have been coming for many years.

  At the next Members Meeting on Wednesday, May 20, we will be showing a beautiful video of the floral works of Manet, Van Gogh and Matisse.  These works are currently on exhibit at the Richmond Art Gallery, in case you want to catch the show.  Business meeting starts at 12:30 in the private dining room of the Fairgrounds Restaurant in Onley/Onancock, with program to follow.  Come early for lunch with your artist friends.

  The next Paint-Out will be on Wednesday, June 24, at the home of Lisa Harlow in Harborton.  She has beautiful gardens, water views, and a great studio whih she designed herself.  Bring a dish to share, and enjoy a gorgeous setting.  Directions will be posted on the website in June, but mark your calendars NOW.

  The new show at the ESAL Gallery is up now – “Baubles and Beads” is the current theme.  Hours are Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 10 to 4 (3 on Sats.)

  For those of you exhibiting at the Hermitage Gallery, changeover date is Wednesday, May 27, from 9 to noon.  Themes appropriate for summer will be appreciated, though not required.  Contact Donna Stufft at for procedures if you have not exhibited there before.
