VAW October E-blast

VAW August 2020 - Special E-blast
Hello Everyone, I know this is becoming a habit, sending you all eblasts so often lately but that is because events are evolving so fast we have to keep you in the loop. Please make sure to visit our new, beautiful website which is up and running with the help of Tina Clancy our new webmaster. Join us in thanking our past Guru Tracy Greening for all her hard work to get us going with our first website also. We the VAW have come so far since we first met in 2018 and we look forward to even more exciting things in 2021 and beyond. Hope to see you all soon and remember to stay safe. Thanks everyone .....Pam and Deedee

VAW August 2020 E-blast
Hello Everyone.....This e blast contains some exciting news for the VAW members, and we hope something to look forward to this fall. Deedee and I along with all the Board members have been trying very hard to find ways to get moving again while staying safe, keeping our members safe and yet to be able to have fun as well. Although the regular shows are still on hold ( hopefully for next spring) we have found what we think will be a wonderful outlet for our talented members. Read over the e blast, if you have questions contact us and plan to keep the morning of August 25th open for an open air members meeting. We miss seeing everyone and although things are getting better, we are not out of the woods yet so we have to proceed cautiously. We have loved seeing your Facebook posts, getting emails and occasionally meeting up with a few at a shop, but nothing beats seeing everyone as a group and the incredible energy we have united. We hope you will agree that this e blast and the information it contains will be a cause for some anticipation and excitement at last. Take care and stay safe......Pam and Deedee

VAW July 2020 E-blast
Hello Everyone on this, the last day of July. Who would have thought that we would still be apart by mid summer, we sure didn't envision this. Still, we are lucky not to be living south of the border where things are much worse. At some point in the future ( hopefully not too distant), we will again be able to meet in person, show our work and laugh with each other over things we have done during this time of isolation. We are sure that most of our members have been busy creating new and amazing work and we are prepared to be astounded by the pieces when we are able to see them. Life has changed but the spirit of caring and friendship still is shining brightly as evident by the posts and emails we see everyday, not only from our group members, but from family and friends as well. Remember to reach out to us if you need anything, someone to talk to, some help in finding supplies, anything or anyway we can be of assistance, we will. And, if we can't give you what you need, we will find someone who can. We are more than a group of artists, we are a group of friends and we miss you all. Please read over the e blast and let us know if there is something you need clarification on. Either Deedee or I will respond asap. Thank you for all your support these past few months, your encouraging words and your funny Facebook posts to lift our spirits. Take care and we will talk soon.... Pam and Deedee

VAW June 2020 E-blast
Hi Everyone Wow, we sure miss you guys! Please read this email completely as it is a bit long but full of important information for the group. We are keeping busy as a board and we are sure you are all painting and stockpiling work for when the shows can get up and running again. Sadly, since we are in Phase 2 and this won't be until Phase 4, it may be a bit of a wait but then it will be awesome! Let us know how you are all doing, what you are doing and keep safe, well and creative til we can see each other again.... Pam and Deedee and the Board of VAW
