Sunday DoN attended the New Members exhibit at The Plastic Club on Camac Street, the historic art club formally women only but now an exciting studio, meeting place and gallery for artists of every stripe. New members include John Baccile, Donna Blichasz, DoN Brewer, Patrick Crofton, Joann Doneen, J.D. Gibson, Katelyn Greth, Susanna Habecker, Karen Hagen, Dorothy Kajani, Jerry Katzenstein, Bob Makoid, Janice R. Moore, Victoria Nevins, Colleen O’Brien, Samantha Stella Reis, Kathryn Russo, Lois Schlachter, Susan A. Stromquist, Debora Miller, Mike Roberson, Patricia Wilson-Schmid and Tristan Wright.In order to become a member of the club one must prove their artistic mettle by submitting several pieces to be considered by the board, not all are immediately approved including DoN who had to submit work completed outside of the club’s workshops in order to join the ranks. The rewards of membership are tremendous including guaranteed exhibitions throughout the year, terrific parties including Bob Jackson’s delicious last Friday workshop dinners and a great group of artists that DoN now considers friends.
