By Carole Sheftic, 1st Vice President of Programs, Manatee Haven Decorative Artists
The members of the Manatee Haven Decorative Artists once again this October proudly displayed their diversified artwork at the Crystal River, Florida Library to make the local public aware of International Decorative Painting Month.
The Library set aside glassed cases for us to display our work. Our only limits are that the shelves are only 18 inches apart! Our chairperson, Virginia Hughes and her committee collect the members pieces and put together the display that is visited by members of the community.
We have been very successful in adding new members to our chapter each year because of this outreach.
