On a personal note, this has been a very challenging and educational year with our two online contests, no Thursday weekly paintouts & our 2021 Annual Members and Featured Artists Shows Virtually presented. It was so different from what we were used to in the past and it put everyone involved in our Light Chasers Family in the way of re-inventing our whole program. I am pleased to note that we rose to the challenge of facing down the pandemic and kept our creative spirit alive through this past year. Thank you to everyone who participated in or viewed our activities over the past year. May we all continue to do so in the future.
Take Care and Keep on Creating!

SPOTLIGHT ON THE LIGHT CHASERS 9TH ANNUAL MEMBERS SHOW
The final visit to our past Light Chasers Annual Shows
On Friday, January, 24, 2020, our Light Chasers 9th Annual Members Show opened at the Edson Keith Mansion, in Phillippi Estate Park, in Sarasota, Florida.
A Touch of Monet" was the theme that year. Wisteria draped the main staircase in the Front Hall.
The fireplace mantles were lit with crystal waterlily tealights. Colorful bouquets of Sunflowers, Tulips, Daisies, Delphiniums, Roses & Carnations that looked as if they were just
picked from Monet's Garden, filled the five gallery rooms of the Mansion.
Guests admired the beautiful paintings that adorned the mansion, while sipping wine & sampling delicious passed hors d' oeuvres. Music from Monet's time added to the feeling
of being in another era.
Roses Bushes & Pansies that bloomed in lattice boxes lent their fragrances to the Gallery Rooms and outdoor Terrace areas.
The Beautiful Raffle Painting seen below, was donated that year by our very talented Featured Artist Susan J. Foster.
Susan J. Foster is also our Judge for this year's Online 10th Annual Members Show.
Many Thanks to Susan for her very generous support of the Light Chasers.
This wraps up our Annual Members Show Spotlights. We hope you have enjoyed visiting the History of our Annual Members Show and walking down Memory Lane with us!
NOW BACK TO THE PRESENT AND OUR 2021 VIRTUAL 10TH ANNUAL MEMBERS SHOW & FEATURED ARTISTS SHOWS.
PLEASE TAKE TIME TO VIEW THE 2021 SHOWS & ADVERTISE THEM TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
BE SURE TO CHECK BACK NEXT WEEK TO SEE WHICH PAINTINGS WON THE AMAZING AWARDS DONATED BY OUR WONDERFUL SPONSORS!
