President’s Message

October 2017


We have been reaching deeper into the communities as never before. Our presence is being felt and thus our recognition for outreach is growing.  I cannot say enough about our members, who are making their presence known as well as the WAA. I have placed in this newsletter several photos on the activities of our membership.  

Thank you to Susan Spitz, and JoAnn DelVacchio, for representing WAA at Arts in the Park. Susan had prepared a session for the public on the processes of digital photograph. Jo-Ann was jammed with people all day watching her do Ink on tiles. Thank you, Susan and JoAnn.   

David Aguilar is at Holiday village for the months of October and November demonstrating brush techniques.  David Watson has been working with the Southampton Township Creative Team doing a class on Ink and Watercolor.   Marge Naperski did a wonderful and neat idea for a class on weaving at the Old Town hall in Vincentown. She is truly a Gifted Person.  Our members David Watson, Marlene Craig, and Ben Cohen had a tremendous reception in Medford. It was jammed with people all night.   

Gallery 50 In Bridgeton was jammed with people for their Annual Nature show and a good deal of the participants were members of the WAA. Thanks to Nancy Sullivan, Sandy Jones, Dom Martelli, Gene D’Agostino, Connie Randles, and Agnes Tucker.   

Our membership was well represented at the Vincentown Library Annual Show and the Plein Air contest. Nancy Gower coordinates this event and she does a tremendous job with organization. Thanks Nancy Gower and Donna Fascenda for all that you do!


Thank you for being involved

Best Wishes,



RJ Hass
WAA President
