Weeki Wachee Senior Citizen Center Yard Sale
Save the date! April 27 will be the WWSC Yard Sale so get your de-clutter going and gather donations. You may want to find some of your lovely works of art to sell as well! This will be an opportunity for exposure to the public.
NEW! We Have A Members' Gallery!!
Carol Hechler and Jeanette Seese have started our Members' Gallery at the WWSC. We hope you have had a chance to see it, but we still need more items to fill our walls. We are asking you to bring in art that you have done to show off your talent! If you want to try to sell it, that's an option.
We ask that you also provide a 3x5" note card or piece of paper that has your NAME, TITLE OF THE WORK (if no title, just write UNTITLED), the MEDIUM and a PRICE (optional). There are several shelves that can accommodate plates, boxes, gourds, miniatures, items needing an easel, etc. If we can get enough participation, we plan to rotate the artwork periodically. We hope you will contribute to a more "artistic" look to our meeting place!
A Colored Pencil workshop will be held at WWSC in July. Details below!
