The next Board of Directors meeting will be on December 6th at 4 pm. SAL members are urged to attend and to voice your opinions.
I would like to thank all members who attended my retirement reception and also thank you for your generous donations for my cash gift. It has been fun working with all of you. Most of you have become friends in and out of the gallery. I will come in periodically to say hello (and if asked, give my advise!).
This is your art league, and as members we are all a part of this exciting time for the art community. Join in the fun and informational discussions as we meet our new director, Jessica Fong, and a potential new Board President, Amy Baskerville. A meeting agenda will be emailed before December 11 indicating topics to be covered, event planning etc.
Your ideas and input are important to the art league operations, and the board is eager to keep you all informed and involved. There will be food, drink and camaraderie. We need your votes, and we need your enthusiasm and support.
A non-profit organization, the San Joaquin Potters Guild was founded in 1991 by a small group of clay artists who were interested in the camaraderie and inspiration that could be gained by association with other ceramic artists. Over the years the guild has grown and now includes glass artists.

SAL offers opportunities for artists to reach their goal by implementing a drawing class under the superior direction of longtime art instructor Raoul Mora and supplying a beautiful gallery for the members to show their work. Raoul Mora, who demonstrates new techniques, gives personal assistance as needed and offers very useful critiques on the work that is being done in the studio as well as work that the artist has done at home. There is no charge for this session although we do have a small optional raffle at this meeting.
The group will meet at the Elsie May Goodwin Gallery.
Raoul will conduct the critique at the near end of our drawing session, so bring in one piece of your recent work as well as a pencil and paper for the drawing portion.
