Dear Friends,


My Spring reverie was cut short by a March snowstorm. We got 6 inches of heavy wet snow on Monday. Even Pi the cat had some trepidation about going outdoors.


Pi is anxiously awaiting the door to open fully so that she may return to her cozy spot by the fire.


I adore children and have always been a proponent of making sure educational opportunities are developed and available to all. I was delighted to be invited by the Virginia State Reading Association (VSRA) to participate in their 51st annual Conference Program held in Richmond, Virginia. The VSRA is a committed group of educators and individuals whose focus is on the development of literacy in Virginia. This concerted effort results in programs that reach out to Virginia students, with inclusion of those who learn differently. I spoke of my experience of learning to read in school. I was not successful during that time, nor was there any program in place to identify my needs. Instead, I was labelled as stupid and was passed through school without the useful tool of reading. That was a different time and era and thankfully my learning difference, dyslexia, has been recognized and help is now readily available. I also spoke about regardless of the challenges you may face, you can still be a success. Hard work and practice will get you far.


It was my pleasure to meet Joan Rhodes, the Big Cheese. She is the VSRA President Elect and served as the 2018 Conference Chair.


On the way to the Richmond conference, my daughter Mary and I took a little side trip to Luray. Our destination was Moonshadows Restaurant where we delighted in yet another culinary masterpiece. I am so proud of my son John and his wife for realizing their dreams with this wonderful restaurant. I am hoping that our family Thanksgiving Dinner will be held there.

I am happy to introduce you to 2 galleries who will soon be carrying Moss artwork as well as being available to assist with Society member items.


Our New Moss Dealers are:

  • Frame Connection in Salem, Virginia
  • 3rd Avenue Art Gallery & Custom Framing by Jenks in Huntington, WV.


I’d like to extend a big welcome to the new dealers. Their information will be posted on the website under authorized dealers.


In other gallery news, Windswept Gallery is the new name for Fast Frame in McMurray, PA. Owner and friend Jim Uhrig has been a Moss dealer since 2006. He will be having his first show since 2008 with me April 13th and 14th. I can’t believe that so much time has passed. We have a lot of catching up to do.  I have been working on a painting that is in support of his show’s theme, “Donate Life.” Jim is an organ recipient and part of the proceeds from his show will be donated to the continuing education of nurses at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. For up-to-date information on the upcoming show as well as other gallery info, Jim invites you to visit his Facebook page. Here is the link.
