Construction of Homewood store front

Hello Members and Patrons

The Village Artists gallery and studio space on Ridge Rd in Homewood, IL -
We are moving right along during construction.  Our next meeting is Monday, Feb 28th 2011. 

Hopefully, in the near future we will be having a painting party and a big group effort to rearrange all our belongs.  I know you will agree it is time to finally CREATE ART in our new space! 
We have been warmly welcomed by the mayor, town residents and our "neighbors" of Ridge Rd stores. 
Three wonderful ladies have been repainting our sign to hang on the outside facade.
Thanks to Sally, Anne, and Sharon for your hard work.
It is also time for election of new officers,  nominations and decisions to be made shortly. 
Spring is almost here and we hope to have a Grand Opening in our new space. 
April 29th is a date being looked at.

Attend the meeting, give your input, welcome spring and let's be creative!
