It is close to that time of year when we settle in, ready to reflect. I will shortly be handing out evaluation forms, to see where I and the art center can better serve you. Thank you to all my volunteers, especially to Susan Schubert, who helped me on my path. I hope you all can make to the volunteer and staff appreciation party on December 10th, 2016 from 6-8 pm. Yours, Sharone

Jennifer Brown's tip:
"Sometimes, things don't turn out the way I expect them to. Anyone who has ever done art or followed a creative pursuit can probably say the same thing. If this happens to you, my tip is: finish the project anyway, and adjust as needed (or adjust your expectations). When I developed the solar plate for "Mary, Undone," it looked awful. I was sure it was ruined and was ready to throw it away. Sharone looked at it and gave me some terrific advice: "print it anyway," because it might be really cool. It was beyond cool - nothing like what I expected, but I would never have known that it would look ethereal and a little mystical. It's one of my favorite prints."
- In this series Marie Cross incorporated large puzzle pieces. See if you can spot them.
So many different possibilities!
"Isn't that the point of printmaking?" comments Marie.
