IT'S A WRAP!
Greetings Artists:

Our Lightchasers Show Weekend is over! The excitement of our Awards Nights are only a memory now. Everyone was amazed by the quality of the beautiful paintings and we realized, that as a group, we were all improving in our Artistic Journey!

Our Décor Theme this year was "A Touch of Monet" and we were greeted by sparkling water lilies and Tea Lights, a wisteria draped staircase, and a bevy of Beautiful flowers that
could have grown in Monet's own Garden. Music from Monet's time floated through the air and Beautiful Paintings surrounded everyone who attended the Lightchasers Show Weekend.
Guests were treated to passed sweet and savory delights and wine.  We enjoyed every minute of it!

Many thanks to Priscilla Brown of Phillippi Estate Park and Sarasota County for allowing us the use of the Beautiful Edson Keith Mansion for our Lightchaser Shows!
Also a Big Thank You to Mike Moran for providing us with the Lovely Music that was heard by all on Friday Night!

To Our Many, Many Volunteers,
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING OUR LIGHTCHASER SHOWS A REALITY!!!
PLEASE KNOW THAT YOU ARE A VALUED AND ESSENTIAL PART OF KEEPING THE LIGHTCHASERS ARTISTS ORGANIZATION ALIVE AND PROSPERING!
MANY THANKS TO EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU!!!

We will share photos of our Award Winners and the Show Weekend in an email later this week when all the photos have been assembled for you to view.

Our Raffle winner, of the Beautiful Painting donated by Our Featured Artist, Susan J. Foster, was Judy Winters. Judy had bought her raffle ticket on Friday night when she and her friends attended  and enjoyed our Show. She is a visiting artist from Delaware, who at the time I called her to tell her she had won, was busy painting on the South Jetty In Venice.
 She was staying with Lightchaser friends in Venice and we were lucky to notify her before she left the area.
Judy was very delighted to win the painting, and we are happy to  have a fellow artist and art lover give it a wonderful home!
Congratulations to Judy Winters for being our 2020 Lightchasers Raffle winner!
