President’s Jottings by Deborah Czernecky Looking back on 2005, it indeed was a very successful year! We had wonderfully talented speakers giving presentations including “NAG Special Exhibitions Coordination” by Christine Lasalle, “Composition” with Aili Kurtis, David Von Fraassen from Wallacks, “Critique Night” with Laurie Hemmings, Allison Fagan's “Coloured Pencils” presentation and Jim Weller's demonstration of abstract watercolour art. Our Annual Awards nights were very well attended and successful. Finishing off the year, we had a marvelous trip to Montreal for the Provence exhibit.
I hope everyone had a relaxing, restful holiday and is ready to move ahead in 2006 with re-charged batteries and renewed inspiration. “No Day Without a Line." Best Wishes to you and yours for the New Year.
