SAS featured in the Summer Issue,

The Susquehanna Art Society was contacted by Erica L. Shames, publisher and founder of Susquehanna Life Magazine, to have an article included in their summer issue. We happy accepted, and reporter, Stephanie Kalina-Metzger, began interviewing a number of our members for the article about SAS and our 40th Anniversary. Erica selected art by our members to accompany the article.
The following have their art represented: Tim Mauk, Bradley Shoemaker, Marilyn Paul, Ruta Karelis, Simmone Roy, Jane Albin and Cindy Dozpat.

Susquehanna Art Society at the Lewisburg Art Festival, Saturday April 27
The Susquehanna Art Society participated in the Lewisburg Arts Festival this year. We had info tables, a new banner and red balloons set up in Hufnagle Park in downtown Lewisburg. Our purpose was to promote the Susquehanna Art Society during its 40th Anniversary and support the Lewisburg Arts Council on it's 50th Anniversary. Despite a constant wind that hampered our display possibilities (the tent had to be taken down and our papers and easels kept trying to blow away), we had a fun time!
Reba Rohrer set up her art supplies on Market Street and demonstrated a block letter design. She won the SAS apron for working on her art. Congratulations, Reba!
Members Sandy O'Connor, Sandy Davis, Silvia Denger, Marilyn Paul, Greg Schlegel, Peggy Walker, and Linda Troutman braved the wind at our tables.
Thanks to all.
