A Trip to Reno and A Visit with Tom Sexton
 A few days before  Christmas Bob Tompkins and Janice Frost went to Reno, picked up Tom Sexton at his church and met the Clarkes, Ron and Nancy at the Museum of Art where we viewed the 78 photos of Ansel Adams.  Bob knew Ansel Adams personally and had a  particular interest in the exhibit.  Tom accompanied Janice and explained the nuances of artist and his skill in the Impressionist Room  full of Steven Wynn’s paintings.
        We had lunch there and were fortunate to have the musical group of Dallas Smith and Susan Mazeur (harp) entertain a large group in the lunch area for an hour. 
       Janice knew the group from association 14 years ago.                                                                                                                 


 Tom is doing as well as expected  His stroke left him with a numb left arm and fingers, he walks with a cane & walker. The Seasons is a very nice retirement center and they keep track of  the patients. He would love to see or hear from any of you.  Please give him a ring

                  His number is:  775-747-3722
  Address:  5165 Summit Ridge Ct, Reno, NV 89523

Carson Valley Museum and Cultural Center

Art Exhibit of CVAA & East Fork Gallery Paintings

The Museum requested that we keep our paintings up through the month of February since they really enhance the display room in the main hall. We will call and let you know when to pick them up..
       All artists on display there were given a ticket worth a dollar off the entrance fee of $3 for visitors. You were notified that the tickets were at the East Fork Gallery (also on display at the museum).
       We were given 80 such tickets, so go and get your two and take a friend with you to view the display. 
       Artists not on display will have to pay the $3 entrance fee which is a reasonable price to pay for supporting this valuable piece of Carson Valley history.

The Paintings at the Museum are Outstanding

Trivia Info Re the Douglas High School Band

CVAA Board voted to donate $100 toward the fund to pay for the Douglas High School Band trip to  Washington D.C. to march in the Inaugural Parade. This is a "once in a life-time" opportunity for these young folks. Bands chosen across the country to march in the parade are only the very best our  country has to offer. This is an honor for our dents, the students, the band, the high school, the county and the state. We can be very proud of Dr. Zabelsky  and his band members. This will be brought up at the January 28th meeting for membership approval.

                                        Recipe Book
Janice talked with Tom Sexton about the Recipe Book and got some of his drawings to insert into it. This was his project and she wants to do it as he would like to see it done.
It will make a good gift!
