Per Dick Pielin: "The auction takes place at Oakton Community College, Room 1604, and doors open early at 6:30 p.m. The auction is scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m. to allow enough time to complete it by 10. The honorable Joe Berton will be the auctioneer. Please bring all those kits you are not going to make, books you have already read, all sorts of prints, militaria, artwork, etc. All proceeds go to the MMSI for operating costs. Also, bring a fistful of dollars and a box to carry home all the bargains you are going to win!"
MMSI PAINTING DAY: Saturday, April 13
Last year's gathering was a big success, and this year's should be even more fun! Per Our President for Life, Mike Cobb: "Come join us at Oakton Community College, Room 1607, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with your latest project or problem, and we can work together to make it something special! We will provide coffee and snacks to get you started and pizza for lunch to keep you going. There is no charge and all are welcome to attend!"
Friday, May 3: Meeting at the Elks Club, 495 Lee St., Des Plaines
Club member Herb Metlzer writes: “I'm presenting a figure painter's guide to art, a freewheeling look at how being a miniaturist gives you insights into the world of portrait painting, sculpture, and historical monuments, with a brief overview of how the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars contributed to modern museum practice.” Don’t miss it!
