We had big fun at our March meeting! Jim Gensheer, local artist and studio owner, dazzled us with his insights into water color techniques, the Mansfield Commission for the Arts filled us in on art opportunities under their sponsorship, and we learned about the MAA Gallery Night in July at the MISD Center for the Performing Arts.
