Message from the President
WOW! What a great first meeting to start the new year. We had a great attendance and a great demonstration. We still need someone to design our poster for the High School concerning our two $1000 scholarships. Please call me if you are interested in helping.
Reiko has written up a flyer to the high school's welding teachers for students interested in entering our metal sculpture contest during our Carson Valley Days Show. We haven't heard from anyone willing to chair our Scholarship Show in Nov. Why don't two of you out there come forward to co-chair the show? We do have people willing to work and help, also we have a guide to help organize the show.
Hopefully everyone is working on a picture or two for our March In House Show at WNCC. At our Feb. meeting we will vote on which business, public or medical facility will be the recipient of a painting donated by us. Those facilities nominated are The Town of Minden, Douglas County Library, and The Record Courier. If you have another you wish to add, bring it up at the meeting.
We are planning a field trip to the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno---more info to come. We'll keep you up-dated. Beth
Ann LaMonica's loss of her husband ; and Bob Tompkin's wife Bunny is recovering from a stroke. Our prayers and wishes are with them. If you want to know more on Bob's wife you could call him, he seems to be doing fine and she is too.

Anne Hassrick Armijo Bio
Anne Armijo is a resident of Minden. She is active in the Nevada Artists Association and a member of the Carson Valley Artists Association. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Colorado, and studied commercial art and graphic design at the Colorado Institute of Art. Her paintings are in collections in the United States from the east coast to the west.
Growing up on a cattle ranch in Colorado, developed an appreciation of nature, which underlies her mainly representational style. Natureís images, subjects, colors, shapes, light and shadow are prevalent in her work. Working primarily in watercolor, she often includes fanciful hidden images and icons in her paintings. Her work is a process of evolution, constantly changing as she experiments with combining unlikely materials such as sewing, beadwork and batik techniques to depict subtle images of light and shadow in the subject matter.
Her work is on display at the Nevada Artists Association Gallery located at 449 W. King Street in Carson City, Monday through Saturday from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M. Note cards are available with images of several paintings represented. She also shows work with the Carson Valley Art Association at the Western Nevada Community College, and CVIC hall in Minden.Secretary Minutes
