Dear Wickford Art Association Members,

 

Every year the Rhode Island Art Education Association has an awards ceremony, which honors the best art educators in Rhode Island. The RIAEA Executive Board also chooses a candidate for their outstanding contributions to our organization.

 

As Awards Chairperson of the Rhode Island Art Association, I would like to congratulate you for being selected to receive the 2013 Distinguished Friend of RIAEA Award! Your dedication and service to art education has been recognized as exemplary. The organization wishes to thank you for your contribution, which has increased community awareness of the importance of art education in our schools.

 

I look forward to honoring your achievements at the Fall RIAEA Awards Ceremony at the Wickford Art Association on October 25th, at 6pm. In the meantime, please send me a digital photograph of your staff or logo, as this will be used in our winter newsletter article featuring the award winners and their accomplishments. When your award is presented, you will also have the opportunity to make brief acceptance remarks. We hope you will bring colleagues, family and friends to share in this honor.

 

Congratulations again on this well deserved award!!! Please contact me if you have any concerns or questions.

 

Sincerely,

Louriann Mardo-Zayat

Note from the Director
"To create one's own world takes courage." Georgia O'Keeffe

Have you found a way to express what is inside of your soul?  If so, then let it shine forth!!  If not, why not?  You need time? Make it!  Afraid of what others think? Stop caring- you are wasting your precious energy, instead nurture who you are.  You are a one of a kind.  There is no one like you! 

 
See you at the gallery soon!!!

Sincerely,


Sarah Tallarico
