Catalina Art Association plans for 2016

I just wanted to tell you what I have in store for 2016.

First of all this is to remind all artists that if you plan on entering the Catalina Art Fair and Exhibition in March you need to fill out and send in you booth fees for your place in the festival.

I also would like to ask all who are interested in becoming an Art Association member please go to our website and make your donation for membership.

Without all our wonderful members, there would be no Art Association, so I thank you all.

This year I’m trying to get artists to hold workshops for the members and locals to participate in. Our first workshop is Jan. 28 at Tremont Hall.

Our featured artist is Robin Cassidy.

She will be offering a class in how we all can make a box or vase out of clay.

Members: $30. Non-members: $35. If any artist would like to do a workshop class please let me know.

Please sign up as soon as possible for classes are limited. If you have any ideas or concerns please let me know.

As for the gallery in the bank, we are waiting for the walls to be painted and we will be able to set up the gallery again.

I’m excited for this upcoming year and looking forward to meeting you all.

Thank you for your time and for supporting the Catalina Art Association.

Avalon Lions Club owns 50 Mile Run

Just and FYI for the next time. The Avalon Lions Club owns the 50 Mile Benefit Run and actually has the name trademarked. The Lions contracts with Spectrum Sports to manage the event and certain logistic on the day of the event.

The Lions handle all logistics on the Island leading up to the event and on the day of it (Volunteers, Insurance, permits, dinner venue, awards, course markings, etc.).

The Lions club receives all proceeds from the event and distributes them to charities and to the community throughout the year.

Spectrum Sports (Mike Bone) asks for very little in compensation for their efforts with us and because of who we are and what we do here in Avalon.

Thanks.

John Regalado
