Alpha Rho Tau Newsletter

September, 2014


Congratulations to Vinicio Perez.


 Vinicio was the featured artist in the August edition of Tulsa People magazine.


Next General Meeting is September 15, 2014

     The next meeting of Alpha Rho Tau will be held at 6:30 Monday evening, September 15th, at the Hardesty Regional Library, 8316 E. 93rd St., Tulsa.

Everyone really enjoyed our August speaker, Richard Coones, amazing presentation of techniques for graphic arts and his creation series.

     You can look forward to a great program at our September Membership Meeting.  A.R.T. program presenter will be Ross Myers, native to Oklahoma, who graduated with a BA degree in Fine Arts from the University of Tulsa.  Myers is known for landscapes of the South Western United States and Oklahoma.  His work has been featured at galleries and museums in Colorado, Arizona, Texas, and Oklahoma.

     Through the years many of our members have taken art lessons from Ross.


Utica Square Show- Deadline for entry forms for the “Art in the Square” at Utica Square is September 15th.  Please mail your entries if possible before that deadline.  People who mail their entries have fewer errors because they take the time to read the instructions carefully, print clearly and have a clear idea of the amount they wish on the tag. Please help me to do away with errors for our shows.  We will not make last minute changes.  Send your entries to:  Byrene Culver, 8006 S. 75th East Ave., Tulsa, OK 74113.  Thanks so much.


September Hospitality News-Thank you! We appreciate all the members who signed up to be “Cookie Angels” and “Table-Scape Decorators!!”

If you are an “Angel,” please remember that we need 3 dozen sweets (brownies, mini muffins, cookies, or any treat of your choice) for the meeting.  “Decorators” plan on arriving a little early (6:15), so we can set up the table for all our “Angels” and members.

Our Sept. 15th meeting “Decorator” will be Phyllis Snyder and our Sept. “Angels” are: Sister Eugenia Brown, Joanne Greene and Emma Nichols.

Thanks to our August “Angels”: Richard Coones, Cindy Crowley, Jan Heffner and Liz McKay. Many thanks to our decorator Robin Hutchings.
