Themes for CJ Muggs Exhibits

Hi all, if you want to plan ahead here are the themes for the next exhibits at CJ Muggs restaurant in Webster Groves.  These shows hang for 3 months.  The restaurant does not handle sales so there is no commission, and there is no entry fee.  Your phone number will be on the title card placed by your painting.  If a buyer contacts you for a sale, you may remove the painting but we ask that you replace it with another one so the show stays intact.  Plan ahead and paint, paint, paint.  Receiving is always on the Tuesday night after our meeting, 9-10 PM and the next Wednesday morning 9-10 AM. 

The Ultimate Quest,        Jan. 15/16—Apr. 16/17, 2013;
Freedom to Explore        Apr. 16, 17 - Jul. 16, 17;
Getting To Know You     Jul. 16, 17 - Oct. 15, 16;
Make It Happen              Oct. 15, 16 - Jan.  21, 22, 2014;
Colorful Corners            Jan.  21, 22 - Apr. 15, 16
