Did you see it? GNAL was on the front page of the Times Herald!… and, above the fold! The article featured our new instructor, Jason Rodriguez, and local children’s artwork from Visitation BVM, on exhibit at Braemer Medical Arts building in East Norriton. The artwork will be up until March 2021.

We want to give a loud shout out to the Braemer Exhibit Team! Linda Crane and Candace Stoudt have been the co-coordinators for this exhibit for quite a few years along with some of their team members, Celeste Sabinske, Jack Llyod, Lorrie Ricciardi and so many others who have helped through the years. They have consistently arranged an interesting exhibit of artwork from our GNAL member’s submissions. (Having such talented members does make it easy) There is so much work that goes into putting together an exhibit every 4 months; this is a knowledgeable group of volunteers who help put together the artwork during every change of exhibit without fail. Thank you so much for continuing to support GNAL. (even while having to wear masks).

*Clarification in article: GNAL will supply materials to students who sign up for online instruction. Our students were given a canvas but no other art supplies for these exhibits.

Patrice DeVirgilis has been honored to have been juried into a national Plein Air competition (The Bucks County Plein Air Festival) along with 30 artists from all over the country.
