Welcome to the new improved GAA Palette Newsletter, will be once again arriving monthly to your inbox on or around the first of each month (except July and August). In an effort to simplify and streamline the way the association information is dispersed, we have gone away from the previous downloadable pdf format to this html emailed format which we hope you will find easier to read and enjoy. We welcome your feedback, suggestions and especially your submissions for member news. Keep those member updates coming.

President's Message

As you might be aware, our dear friend and GAA president, Jennifer Bentson, has resigned because of health reasons. I want to extend my appreciation to Jennifer for her dedication and hard work and wish her a speedy recovery on behalf of GAA and the art community. 

As GAA’s vice president I will be assuming the president position, and my sincerest hope is that with your help, we can carry forward the aims of our club to infinite success.

Our Fall Salon 2015 is in full motion, the details for which can be found below in this issue of the GAA Palette and on our website at

I also want to thank our GAA administrators, Dick Heimbold, Araks Johannes, Diane Carter, Vicky Rees, Helena Bowman, Shree Hingnikar for their active participation and selfless help in our ongoing projects.

See you all at our November 12th meeting, and, please make sure to bring all your creative suggestions so that we can achieve ever greater heights in our artistic endeavors.
