Welcome to 2017, our 94th year. For so many years there were things that we just couldn’t do. Now we have ended our first year at the GFAA Gallery and we feel there is probably nothing we can't do!

Every Month the Board and I meet to plan, discuss and initiate our nex...

As I look back on 2016, I would say that it has been one of the best years of my life. While I have not been a “New Years Resolution” person. I have always had goals and as they say, these days, a “Bucket List”. This year has been one that has allowed me to cross off s...

I am beaming. Why? Over 90 people showed up for the GFAA Holiday Social. Karen LeMonnier, Alfred Phillips, Marilyn Gray and others transformed the GFAA Gallery into quite an Event Venue. To the whole GFAA Board and all of the Volunteers (the list is so long that if I s...

This is a very important week. First of all we voted on Tuesday. So when you read this, that will be over and we will have a new President. On Thursday, you can vote again. Not for a new President (you are stuck with the old one you voted for), but for Vice Presidents...

Did you know that I won my third ribbon at the Mixed Media and Collage Opening Reception? And this one was Best in Show. Am I bragging? Maybe a little. More importantly, I believe if my work has improved that much, then each and every one of you has the same opportunit...

When Sally Larson came to me, before we opened the Gallery, with the idea of her having an Open Studio for our members, I was excited. I was familiar with the concept and believed that it would be an additional way of bringing members together.
