I attended the May 21st Art Guild Meeting at the St. Helens High School art room. Present were Carolyn Curtis, Lee, Kathy Fellows, Alan Coppock, and myself. That was the last meeting of the year there because school will be closed for the summer. Darcie has offered to let us come to her house. We saw Alan's latest painting, we all shared our trading card size pictures, and caught up on what each other had been doing. Kathy had photos she transfered to cloth by using her printer. It was suggested that I add the artist outings in here that I was aware of at this point. So here they are.
