Membership: Marty Shively reported that we currently have 67 members.
Lower Bucks Hospital Show: Ilene Rubin reported that the new show was successfully hung. There are 21 artists participating, and 96 paintings are on display. The hospital provided extra hooks and hangers so we could accommodate more people (There will be a cap of 22 on the number of artists who can display in the future.) Congratulations to Marty Shively, who already sold one of her paintings. Lisa McGovern has been doing publicity for the show. She has designed a poster and a slide show, both of which are on the AOB Facebook page
Due to Covid19 restrictions, anyone wishing to view the show must go the security desk at the entrance to the lobby and obtain a pass specifically for the art show.
The next change over for art at this location is expected to be in June.
