A Message from Our President


Crooked Creek Art League Logo

May 1, 2021


Greetings to CCAL Members:


There are a couple of deadlines approaching that of which you need to be aware.


Your vote can be cast for either or both of these by clicking on the links above.


May Meeting


Our May 17 meeting will be the Annual Member Contest, “South Carolina Feathered Friends and

Wildlife.” This in-person meeting will be held in the large room to the left of the lobby where we

would normally have the Juried Show Reception. If you are participating, you are reminded that

you need to let Kay Fox know. Please bring your own easel (floor or table top).


New Members


Please join me in welcoming the following new members who joined since my last President’s

Letter – Skip Willits and Carmen Willm.


Workshops


Our final workshop for this League year will be Collage Landscapes presented by Julie Larkin and

will be in-person on May 14-15. Registration is still open online or by contacting Carol Blackwood.


Committee Coordinators Needed


We still need members to fill the positions of Refreshments Coordinator and Publicity

Coordinator. If you are willing to serve or would like more information, please contact me at

soliver497@bellsouth.net or (803) 321-0507.

Koger Center Exhibit “Field Trip”

photography exhibit by Kimberly Case as part of the 1593 Project. Thank you, Kimberly, for

inviting us; and thank you to the members who attended.


Final Thoughts


We are coming to the end of our League year, and I want to thank everyone for their support and

participation in League activities. Even though the past nine months were less than “normal,” we

did have a successful year thanks to the Executive Board, the Committee Coordinators, and

especially our members.


We have had. . .

  • 9 meetings – 2 in-person and 7 on Zoom

  • 5 workshops – 3 on Zoom and 2 in-person

  • 11 Zoom Board meetings

  • 2 successful juried exhibits

  • 16 new members since September 2020

  • 22 members who exhibited in nine public galleries


Thank you again for allowing me to serve as your President this year, and I hope to see you at the

May 17 in-person meeting. Continue to stay safe and continue to create.


Sandra Oliver, President
