Hello E.G. members,
    I wanted to thank all those who helped out last week at the What's Blooming on Harrison Street event at our studio!  Thank you Ruth Patzloff and Lisa Markwart, for taking care of the Gasse School of Music.  I hear it was a lot of fun to see all the kids playing their string instruments!  Thank you Kate Brennan, Grazyna Grazesnikowska-Kot, Maria Garcia for taking care of the drop in and Print classes and Jill Kramer for getting material and the project ready!  I hear we got a lot of Kids this year!  Also Carol for gallery sitting and closing up for us!  It sounds like a really nice weekend and I'm glad the weather was pretty good.  My girls spent all morning there!  Thank you Kate for taking them!

Coming up next Nicolas de Jesus will be exhibiting his print works in our gallery space and will be doing a workshop, book promotion and lecture!  See flyer above!  Thank you Grazyna for helping put together the flyer!

I will be gallery sitting this Saturday 1-4pm (May 24, 2014,)  I can help anyone who comes in but will not be printing.  I'm recovering from surgery and doing well.  It was a little more invasive than I had thought it would be so will need a little more time to recover.  Thank you for all the emails and support during this recovery time!

Lastly, art camp is coming up!  We will put the dates on the calendar.  Those days  and times the studio will not be available for rent.  Also we will have a members meeting June 7th at noon!  Please come!

Thank you,
Janet Schill
