Signing off for the season, Barbara Quinn-Grasso heads north to Cape Cod.  News for the MIOA will come from Phyllis and other painters...keep up the postings!

Thursday, March 21, I attended a Gallery Opening at The Esplanade. Judy Chinski and Betty Newman own this new gallery, The Artist Gallery Marco Island, and invited Karen Swanker to be a Guest Artist there. The new gallery is around the corner (to the right) from the Jo-Ann Sanborn Gallery. A beautiful, sparkling spot on the water of Smokehouse Harbor, we wish them all the best of luck!

Kathy Vondorn and her beautiful oil painting of Mary Crawford Reining in the garden!

Vince Coppola works in the open air of one of the docks.
