President Karen Werner's Statement
seven years ago I visited an Associated Artists meeting for the first time.
I was immediately impressed by a friendly and welcoming group of like-minded
people. They loved art and wanted to share ideas, techniques and
art-related opportunities with one another. I discovered the group had been
in existence since 1964, and many had been members for decades! I figured
this group must be doing something right!
Membership in Associated Artists gives me learning opportunities and venues
to show my work, but most important are the personal connections with other
artists. The friendships are the best!
I encourage you to visit one of our monthly meetings. Come and enjoy the
demonstration, camaraderie and refreshments. Check out the many benefits of
membership. Become as involved as you wish to be. I think you’ll find that
associating with other artists will spur you on in your own creative
