>>>Your Holiday Cards Wanted for December Meeting
Beth Veldey needs images of holiday cards you have created. The images will be used for the December 10th WAAL meeting program about holiday cards. We will have a “guess the artist” for cards designed by famous artists you may know. We also want to feature cards designed by WAAL members. Please dig out some holiday cards you have created and email me at this link. <>
If you’ve not attended one of the zoom meetings you are missing out on some interesting fun! Check out two images of your fellow artists at the last regular meeting (attached).
The zoom access information will be provided in the next announcement.

Bryn Du exhibition Thanks for your message! We are still finalizing things as the mandates and guidelines change BUT it appears that we will have a strong virtual presence this year regardless of any other details. At the very least, the catalog will be online for sharing but there will also probably either be a professionally-made video of the physical show or a virtual gallery, or both. So, I guess the answer is – you will definitely be able to share the show and your work electronically this year! And, because we know that not everyone is tech-saavy – we will help guide this year’s artists by providing email templates and examples as to how to share things in the easiest manner.
Let me know if you have additional questions. I hope you are doing well!
Thanks! Angela
>>>> Subject: invite to unique Thanksgiving concert Fun, entertaining, and thoughtful: Our Gratitude Concert Moves Online Friends. Freedom. Food. Music. Parents. Children. Pets. Laughter. Emotions. And dozens of other things. Despite the virus, racial injustice, and many other challenges, we all have so much to be thankful for. So join me (Bill Cohen) from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday November 27 as I sing a unique concert of songs that express gratitude for all that we have. It’s the 7th year for this Thanksgiving-themed concert. Playing piano and guitar, I’ll sing songs written by, made famous by, or inspired by, a wide variety of folks — John Denver, the Weavers, Phil Ochs, Louis Armstrong, Don McLean, and others. Even Johnny Appleseed, Jiminy Cricket, and the “old ladies” on the TV show, “Golden Girls.” On several songs, Ann Fisher will add beautiful flute accompaniment, and Joe Lambert and Joanne Blum will add soothing vocal harmonies. This year, for the first time, the program will be entirely online. Whether or not you’re a member of Facebook, you can see and hear the show by going to the Facebook page called “Bill Cohen Sings.” You can either search for that page online yourself, or you can click on this link, and hopefully that will connect you AT THE TIME OF THE CONCERT. <> If you have a Facebook account already, just click this link.
**IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A FACEBOOK ACCOUNT, YOU CAN STILL WATCH but you need to click 1 more thing! Once you click on this link (above) you will be asked to either log in or join. IGNORE THAT REQUEST! Instead, click anything else like Home, Events, Videos etc on the left hand column and the notice to login or join will go away! Then, you can watch us live AT THE TIME OF THE CONCERT! If you go early or another time, you can watch and listen to other Live concerts we have done.
Besides the music in the gratitude concert, we’ll hear some thoughtful quotes, reminding us of our many blessings. No sermons here but words of inspiration and emotion from sources as varied as Albert Schweitzer, Rod Serling, Gandhi, Einstein, and Buddha. This is a free concert, but if you appreciate the songs and the message, we’ll be welcoming donations for a non-profit charity, International Medical Alliance of Tennessee. That’s the group that my wife Randi goes with to the Dominican Republic every February. The all-volunteer group of doctors, nurses, and medical students provides free medical care to impoverished, disenfranchised Haitian workers who live and work just inside the D.R. border. Randi serves as the group’s interpreter, bridging the language gap between the Spanish-speaking patients and the English-speaking medical workers.
