Next Board Meeting:
Tuesday, May 8th, at 7:30. All members are welcome to attend.

New initiative: The Arts/Wayland Outing Club!
The board felt the need to offer more opportunities for our members to get together. So, we'd like to begin an ongoing series of arts-based experiences.

Our first outing is going to be on Sunday, May 6th, from 1-4pm. We'll be viewing the deCordova's Biennial exhibition. Those interested are invited to meet at 1pm in the dining area adjacent to the deCordova's store. For more information, please contact Pete Curran at artnews@artswayland.com

Our second outing will be on Sunday, June 3rd, from 1:30-4:30pm. Suzen Perry will be hosting a Plein-Air painting opportunity for members. She's invited us to her home, which is near the Walden Pond park, at 9 Baker Farm Rd., Lincoln, MA. We'll finish the day with a quick trip to the Tsongas Gallery to view the space for our upcoming show (see #2 in Calls for Artists). For more information, please contact Suzen at natureigns@gmail.com
