Annual Luncheon & Installation of Officers
had a very nice dinner at Portofino's on Austin Ave across from the
(at left). Two paintings were brought for use on the postcard
announcement for the February exhibit at the Arboretum. Both were
excellent, but Kay Lamb Shannon's (at right) was selected by a one vote
margin. We have just heard that Kay was featured in a recent issue of
Women of Distinction magazine. Her life is outlined briefly from her
childhood in Weatherford, her art degree from Sam Houston State
University, and a few years of teaching in Waco and elsewhere, to the
evolution of her art from a hobby to pretty much full time. Today, she
is making very detailed paintings for two jigsaw puzzle companies. She
has no plans to retire.
