Thanks to NESBA’s RI State Rep Frances Topping for organizing the exhibit, and to members Gail Tatangelo, Rita Edmunds and Joyce Westner for packing up the paintings and moving them to Joyce’s house for the month of July. RI was a great success with more speakers than at any other venue, Frances Topping on “Botany for Artists and Others,” Robin Wilkerson on “Native Heroes,” Gail Tatangelo and Joan DeGregory on “Drawing and Painting Botanicals.”
