Updates July 2020


Re-imagining the ASMC for the remainder of 2020

Dear Members of the ASMC,

We hope you are all well and managing during this difficult time.

We want you to know that you are always in our thoughts and that your Board is actively engaged via ZOOM meetings (see photo below) to continue planning how we can provide value to our members without conducting traditional in-person activities and events.

With your health and safety in mind, the Board has decided that we will not schedule anything for the remainder of 2020 that requires an in-person presence. In December, we will see where we are and keep you informed about our schedule of art exhibits and meetings for 2021.

In the meantime, we will:
  • Continue with our Virtual Painting Parties via ZOOM on a monthly basis;
  • Offer guest speakers and demonstrations of interest via ZOOM on a monthly basis;
  • Plan a Fall Virtual Art Exhibit that will take place online via our Website;
  • Update our ByLaws and present them to you for approval (you will receive two announcements and a call for a vote next month);
  • Continue our Leadership transition based on last month’s election;
  • Share free online painting workshops and videos;
  • Create new membership benefits;
  • Enhance our publicity efforts; and 
  • Continue to train our members on how to access the technology we are using to stay connected.
If you have a computer, laptop, iPad, or smartphone as well as an email address, we know that we can connect you to our meetings/presentations with one-to-one guidance. Sue VanVolkenburgh, our incoming Co-President, is our in-house expert and will guide you through the process by phone. Our next scheduled Painting Party is today, Saturday, July 11 at 5pm. You may call Susan at 4pm. . You may join with or without video. 


Our mission is to promote the arts and encourage creativity.


We are an active group of painting artists and photographers, many with professional designations, who love learning, enjoy creating art, and pay it forward with

scholarships for college art students.


During the pandemic, please join us online at our lively and informative meetings with lectures and demonstrations by professional artists.


As a member, you may participate virtually in any of up to four major Art Exhibitions in 

November, January, March, and April.  All exhibits are judged by professionals who award prizes and recognition ribbons. For sponsored exhibits, we provide monetary awards in five categories (three awards per category) to 15 artists.


For members who are professional artists with websites, we offer a free link on our

Artists and Supporter Links page 

We also offer promotion of their shows to our email list.


Membership is $30/year for individuals; $40 for households.

Our year starts Sept. 1 and ends August 31.  Join us!
