Dear Friends:

Our Dealers’ Meeting, which was held at my Museum in Waynesboro, Virginia, this past weekend, was most productive. About forty authorized Moss dealers joined members of my staff and me to learn about a new software program by LifeSaver Software that enables the customer to see a virtual image of a framed print, starting with just the print, the mat, and the molding corners they have selected in a frame shop or gallery. The Museum’s Administrator Bonnie Stump conducted a very informative session on my miniature watercolors as well as the processes and materials used in finer printmaking. We were also very excited to be able to show the dealers some new products we’re working on and plan to have ready this fall.

Pat makes a point at the breakfast session of the P. Buckley Moss Dealers' Meeting held at the Museum in Waynesboro this past weekend.

During a break in sessions, gallery owners exchange ideas and experiences, surrounded by Pat's art in the research room of the Museum.

There will be four new porcelain keepsake boxes. They will be round, about 5 1/2 inches in diameter, with some of our favorite images: The Hummingbird, Under the Mistletoe, Kindergarten Days, and Our Anniversary. These boxes will be great for jewelry, small sewing notions, loose change, or anything else you may want to keep safe and tidy.

The four porcelain boxes due out this fall, each bearing a beautiful P. Buckley Moss image in lustrous color for that special occasion or that special someone.

We’ve also been working on a high quality collectible pendant. My images will be fired onto fine porcelain and edged by a beautiful sterling silver, silver plate or gold plate surround, which can be hung from your own necklace. The porcelain images are designed to be interchangeable; they attach to the surround by a magnet. This means that you can choose an image to match your mood. We’re developing multiple images so that you can buy one surround and collect different images as they are produced. The porcelain images and the surround will store nicely in the new porcelain keepsake boxes!

New jewelry under development. This picture shows the six images that will be coming out this year. The images are on porcelain, with a powerful magnet on the reverse side that secures the porcelain into the surround. You can change the porcelain image in the surround according to your mood. The surround will be made of sterling silver, silver plate or gold plate. The porcelain images will be available individually or as a set.

This Thursday I’m flying to Davenport, Iowa, for the P. Buckley Moss Society’s regional Chapter Training session and for a weekend show with Woodland Gallery. I’m excited about the work the chapters do for the charities they support and to be involved with people who care about one another. I’m looking forward to seeing so many of my Iowan friends and the beauty of the area. The Mississippi River winds past Davenport, and the scenery is wonderful! After Woodland Gallery’s show Saturday evening, there will be a riverboat cruise on the Mississippi and a fundraising auction for the P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children’s Education.

St. Ambrose University, to be released at Woodland Gallery's show, Davenport, Iowa, August 5-6.

The following weekend, August 12-13, I’ll be seeing my Virginian friends, and some from other states, too, at my Collectors’ Convention in Roanoke. It’s going to be great fun!

’Til next week…
