The President’s Message
By Kathryn Flanagan
March 14, 2011
Dear Seattle Co Arts Members,
Happy Spring to you all!!! The days are longer but the
rain still continues to dampen my spirit. Spring!! I so long
for the return of the light. I am grateful that it is right
around the corner. I see buds on the trees and daffodils
in the flower beds, with crocuses peeking through the
earth. My soul is responding. Maybe I will paint today!!
We had a great Board Meeting and resolved some mi-
nor issues, which I will share.
SIGN-IN SHEET: Please remember to check off your name when coming through the door and gather-
ing your name badge. We had a dickens of a time trying to collect the information this year, as some of
us forgot to check off names on the sign in sheet. So please keep this in mind when entering the church.
Just check off your name. No signature is needed. Remember that the July Picnic and December Ban-
quet qualify for the requirement of 3 meetings to enter into the Annual Juried Show.
3 MEETINGS REQUIREMENT FOR ANNUAL JURIED SHOW: We did discuss this topic at length and
feel that this requirement is part of what makes SCA so very extraordinary. We want an organization that
is active and involved in the process. We believe that the commitment to SCA is stronger when this re-
quirement is in place. We want to have a social association of members that meets together and enjoys
that progression of being with a passionate group of artists.
Jane Becker will be sending out Sunshine cards to the following: Sue Gill Rose, broken pelvis; Helen
Drummond, broken foot; Joan Poor, ankle surgery; Karen Artz, foot surgery; Colette Laico, whose hus-
band recently suffered a major stroke; and Ron McCollum, complete ankle replacement, again. Please
know that we are sending you all our prayers and wish you all a speedy recovery. I thought these were
our Golden Years!!!
Thank you to all that have entered into the 2011 Joy of Art Annual Juried Show. Your artwork is beautiful
and I am so glad you have participated in this event. Huge hugs to Keith Artz for the magnificent job of
coordinating the core of the show – The Digital Entries!! Thank you Keith.
I look forward to seeing you all at the next General Meeting on March 22. If you need to contact me,
please know I am always available at KathrynFlanagan@comcast.net.
2011 Yearbooks were available at the January and February meetings. Members who were
not able to attend these meetings were sent their Yearbook via snail mail. If you haven't received
your Yearbook, please contact Audree DeAngeles in Seattle at (206) 784-6744.

your choice—any subject matter—with Anne’s help or paint on the

problem paintings and questions. Anne’s expertise extends to several
media, so students may paint in other media in this class.
Anne’s mastery of art springs from her dedicated work as an artist for the past 25 years. She has also been a gallery
owner for part of that time, and her art and writing have appeared in Watercolor Magic Magazine and several other
publications. You may view more samples of her work at: http://www.anneolwin.com/gallery.html

"Associate Member" this is your opportunity to take your membership to the next level. Active Mem-
bers may enter next year's Annual Juried Exhibit if at least three meetings are attended from May,

Co-Arts is fortunate to have many members willing to take responsibility to keep our organization humming. One of
these "hummers" is Paula Parks who graciously volunteered to be my backup teammate on the Membership Commit-
tee. Paula has worn various hats in our organization and I'm grateful to her for assistance. We all are also relieved to
have her safely return to us after her recent trip to New Zealand. She was probably in flight at the time of the terrible
earthquake. (You have been a mover and a shaker, Paula, but that was a bit much!)

Joan Grout’s Art Supplies Available
By Sheila Stump
upplies (mostly Masa paper) from Joan Grout, plus signed and
numbered prints of her work are now available. Her husband
donated them to support the Greater Marysville Artists' Guild
scholarship, now named for Joan. Unfortunately, the group is too
small for so much material, so I will bring the unsold stuff to Co-
Arts. Our idea is to share the proceeds between the 2 scholarship
funds. I also have a complete equipment and supplies kit for paper
making and paper casting (including some molds). They are sufficient
supplies to teach classes.
The supplies occupy 2-3 storage bins, so I won't bring them in, but I
will have everything available in my car (complete with transport dolly, which I will loan the purchaser).
Thanks, Sheila Stump
