President’s report
Reminder: The Dubuque Museum of Art wants us for 2016. We need a theme (planning committee), coordinator for exhibit (planning committee to find someone).

Quote from Dubuque Museum of Art Fundraiser on Friday: Dubuque Museum of Art executive director David Schmitz told art patrons that the museum is for everyone. During a recent camera club exhibit, he received a phone call from a truck driver who was coming to visit to make sure they were open. He said one of his friends had a photo in the show that he wanted to see.

Holiday Show at the Carnegie-Stout Library. These names were selected by drawing to show at the library: Kevin McTague, Bob Felderman and Laura Schuster. Bob, Sue, Lori, Ron, Gary are backups if the other artists sell their work.
