September 2015


President's Letter

Welcome Back!

Hope your summer activities included rest and several adventures to inspire and soothe the restless artist spirit! The start of September was a whirlwind for PSG, celebrating our PSG Student Member Exhibition at Essentia in Belltown. Thank you to our intern Sadie Sullivan for her leadership and organization. The show looks amazing and will be up through the end of October in Seattle. Be sure to stop by and support our student’s inspired works.

Thank you everyone for your submissions to the Rainier Club Exhibition. It was a crowded event in the Rainier Room for the PSG/Rainier Club cocktail hour last week. I gave a presentation about the history of our organization and shared our historic video, celebrating our contribution to the community through scholarship, education, community and historic preservation. Thank you to the Rainier Club Arts Committee, once chaired by PSG patron Dr. Richard Fuller, for arranging this very fun social. The works chosen will be shown from October 5 - December 31, 2015. We are grateful to the Rainier Club for this wonderful opportunity.

Upcoming Events

General Meeting/Artist Salon, September 16th at Bellevue Brewery from 6 - 8:30pm, welcomes gallery owner Linda Hodges, Erin Pollock, members Karen Whitworth and Joe MacKechnie to share their successful marketing and visibility strategies through social media and beyond. Please join us for an evening of camaraderie and inspired ideas.

New Leadership 2016

We are looking for leadership candidates to serve on the board for 2016. Continuing to expand our legacy by helping create opportunities for visibility and fostering community connections is essential. Interested members contact:  

The board is looking for volunteers for next years General Meeting/Artist Salon. Ideas for cross pollination among other artist and non-profit organizations, like the Junior League and EAFA are in the works. We need your vision and commitment to continue this valued community program.  

Historic Preservation

Thank you to Phil Levine and Special Advisor Randal Southam for their ongoing commitment to videotaping Life Member narratives for a PSG documentary. To date over 11 members have been videotaped, going out to each artist’s individual studio to share their memories of fellowship and relationships within the PSG. A reminder to all of us the value of community among us as we move forward in the changing art environs.

See you all Wednesday night, September 16 at the Bellevue Brewery!  We have a few door prizes for the event. Don’t miss the fun and fellowship!

Katherine Troyer
PSG Board President
