December 2 - Holiday Luncheon, Scholarship
Our luncheon this year followed the funeral service
for Charles Cagle, husband of our president, Nancy Cagle. Charles
has been a great help to Nancy, to all of us, and to many, many others.
He has always been willing to pitch in and help whenever a need arises.
We will miss him. Nancy was with her family, but she encouraged us
to carry on, and we did.
scholarship this year went to MCC student Janis Jack. She received
$200, a certificate, a 2007 gallery level membership in the Art Guild,
and her lunch. Janis received the award graciously and passed
around examples of her work, which were black and white photography.
We also collected donations toward flowers for the
funeral and a commemorative plaque in appreciation of Charles for his
support of art. The plaque was applied to an easel which Nancy can
use to support art. Knowing her love of puns, we hope this will
not only let her know how much Charles meant to us, but will also give
her a chuckle from time to time.

have a new member, Linda Green, who makes embroidery pictures, one of
which is at the left. Maybe she will bring one or two to the next
meeting for us to see up close. She reminded me of an exhibit at
the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth. It is "Regarding the Land,"
which contains nature
photography of Robert Glenn Ketchum and Eliot Porter. The
embroidery connection is that some of Ketchum's
photos have been reproduced in Chinese silk embroidery by Suzhou.
The photography is beautiful, but the embroidery is truly amazing. One
is at the right. The exhibit will continue through through January
