									PURPOSE: To support the Rocklin community with art activities and exhibits, encourage the participation of Rocklin
businesses, schools and artists in the community through exhibits, art demonstrations, lectures, and workshops, and to support
local artists, art in public places and art shows.

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE: Spring is in the air and flowers are in bloom so this might inspire you to create a new
piece for our upcoming 3rd Annual Membership Show scheduled for 15 and 16 May 2010. The show will again be
held at the Rocklin Community Center, next to the Rocklin Library. Gini Crepps is the Chairperson and Jer Jarrett
is Co-chair this year. They had their first planning meeting on 24 February. More information will follow so please
give them all the support you can.

The Rocklin Snowflake Show was held on 13-14 February at Finn Hall. Donald MacDonald was the Chairman and
did a great job organizing the show. There were fewer entries this year 73 compared to 84 last year. RFA came
through again by being an exhibit participant.

Not only did RFA members support this event with art pieces, they volunteered to help. Many thanks to that
volunteered and entered this event. There were Thirteen RFA winners:-

Oils:                 1st    Donald MacDonald
                      2nd    Shirley Pruitt
                      3rd    Jill Maddex

Mixed Media:          1st    Ken Maddex
                      2nd    Linda Pike
                      3rd    Linda Hoschler

Pen/Pencil            1st   Paul Mitchell

                      3rd Paul Mitchell

A meeting is planned with Sharon Brooks, Pam Brown, Donald MacDonald and I to discuss the artist feedback
from the evaluations to determine possible improvements for next year.

                                                                                                                       Page 1 |
Jer and I met with Angela Tahti, the Executive Director of Placer Arts. The highlights of our discussions are
outlined below:
    -Angel would like to include RFA events onto the Placer Arts calendar. Jer Jarrett has the action to follow up
      on this activity.
    -Placer Arts has a free Art Registry that can accommodate 16 pictures per artist. Check out their web site:
    -The 2010 Auburn Art Walks (April, June, August, and October) were discussed and Angela stated that
      interested RFA artists need to submit a letter of intent form. Artist applications need to be in by 3/20/10. See
      the placerarts.org for more information.
    -Also discussed was the upcoming 16th Annual Art Studio Tour on November13, 14, and 15, 2010. Angela
      encouraged us to have RFA members sign up. Please contact Bill Jarrett if you are interested in applying for
      the 2010 show. Those living in a gated community such as Springfield, the art studio at the Gables could
      possibly be one of the tour spots in 2011. RFA Board of Directors will have further discussion on this topic.

At the General Meeting Judy Larson (who is in charge of Finn Hall for the Annual Art Studio Tour) stated that
there are 6 artists to exhibit for the 2010 Studio Tour, but there may still be room for more.

The current RFA Board has served for almost 1 ½ years and board members’ terms expire at the end of this year. It
is a good time for all members to think about volunteering for one of these positions. There are many opportunities
in this club and we need new people with fresh ideas. Just let me or any Board Member know if you are interested
in becoming a Board Member. Serving on the Board is interesting and fun, so don’t be shy.
Thanks for your continuing support to RFA.                                          Bill Jarrett, RFA President
