A group of BAGSC members who live in the Los Angeles/Pasadena area gather on the second Monday of each month from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. to draw, paint, and to explore botanical illustration. Known as the Second Monday Artists, we recently agreed to meet more frequently in anticipation of the BAGSC exhibition August 1-9, “Weird, Wild & Wonderful: Botanical Illustrations of Remarkable Plants.”  Our next gatherings will be on the following Mondays:
·      May 11 Norma Sarkin’s home
·      May 25 Janice Sharp’s home

BAGSC members are invited to join us. Car-pooling is encouraged. Bring a current project or begin a new work, pack a portable light if needed, and  remember to bring your own lunch.

Please see your BAGSC roster for addresses, and RSVP to Bonnie Born Ash to let her know you’re coming and to ask any questions. We hope to see you then!

* Deb apologizes for not getting this post up in time for the April 27 gathering! Hope you had a great painting day.
