Rockwall Art League’s 2015 Fall Fine Art Show Judge

 RAL would like to introduce the judge for our 2015 Fall Fine Art Show on October 2-4 at the Rockwall Rotary Building. We are very pleased to have Carol Bruggman Mitchell judging this year.  Carol will be following in the footsteps of other outstanding past judges like Rusty Jones, Nancy Boren, Cecy Turner, Sharon Serrago, Andrew Wages and John Pototschnik.


Fall show 2015

Karen Perry and Kay Roe have agreed to co-chair the Rockwall Art League Fall show. RAL has a reputation for producing Fine Art Shows of the highest caliber, but to accomplishthis, it takes a village. The show has been scheduled for October 2,3,and 4 2015. Now that the preliminary planning has started, we must ask for your help in order to produce this show. We would like to match you with an area of your expertise where you feel you will be most helpful. Currently (ASAP) we are seeking people to serve in two areas (PUBLICITY 3-5 people AND SHOWFUND RAISING ) crucial to a successful show people . We will be asking for more help down the road but it is urgent to get these two parts of the show plans underway.

Please respond if you are willing to help with either of these tasks. If you are not comfortable working in these areas, don't feel left out. There is plenty of work to go around.Karen and Kay are looking forward to working with you to have a fantastic show.

From our President Thom Loafman

Greetings everyone!

I have wonderful news!  Stephanie Grant has agreed to join our board as a
Member at-Large.  That means she represents the membership in our board
meetings, but has no specific responsibilities as an officer outside that.
Stephanie has been a marvelous contributor since joining the League, and I
know you will all agree with me that she will continue to be a tremendous
asset in her new role.  Please join me in thanking Stephanie for accepting
this appointment and welcoming her to our closeknit board.  Thank you,

Stephanie!  We're glad to have you.
