The Muleshoe Art Association met Tuesday, March 5, at the Oneida Wagnon Senior Center.

President Ann Johnson called the meeting to order. Roll was called and Misti Prater gave the treasurer’s report. Old business included a report on the bake sale in February, which was very successful. Forty-two valentines were delivered to Park View Nursing Home and were much appreciated by the residents. Six Art Association members traveled to Plainview to enjoy Misti’s program for the Plainview art club. Jon Birdsong called Ann and said he will conduct a class in the near future; details will be forthcoming.

New business included discussion of the spring art show on April 8-12. A division for miniatures has been added. Members are to meet Monday, March 11, at the senior center to prepare and mail brochures about the show to other clubs and interested individuals. Ann announced that Margaret Hodgson from Lubbock is the judge of this year’s show.

After Melba Bratcher won the door prize, the meeting was adjourned, and Ann introduced Dyan Newton from Abernathy. She is a featured artist of the Lubbock Art Festival this year on April 13-14. Dyan paints in acrylics, watercolor and pastels and has paintings in a gallery in Ruidoso. She demonstrated painting with acrylics using her signature bright colors.

Members present for the meeting were Kay Hohes, Shirley White, Ann Johnson, Debbie Black, Melba Bratcher, Misti Prater, Sandra Chancey, Sandi Chitwood, Dianne Brown, Phil and Annetta Gaasche, Ruth Hall, and guest Sharon Agee.

The spring art show will be April 8-12. Contact any art association member or president Ann Johnson for details on entering.
