August is shaping up to be an exciting month for me. This weekend
I’ll be in Waynesboro, Virginia, for the P.
Buckley Moss Society’s annual Chapter Training Weekend.
Chapter training is an informal and informative opportunity for Society
chapters across the country to meet and exchange ideas, hear speakers
and presenters, and have fun. Society chapters have helped raise
over $1 million to help those in need, benefitting children’s
health, education, and welfare; the American Cancer Society; and many
Last week four members of the Board of Directors of the P.
Buckley Moss Foundation for Children’s Education got together
in Mathews for a couple days to do some planning for theFoundation.
Peggy Goodwin, who is the Society’s Vice President (Chapters),
also serves on the Foundation’s Board, and we talked about plans
for Chapter Training. The other three Foundation Board members
were Dr. Linda Wilson, Dr. Douglas Ball, and my daughter Patty Moss.
The Society and the Foundation’s Boards of Directors are all volunteers
who give their time so unselfishly to help others, and I am very grateful
for their time and dedication.
Next weekend I’ll be in Waynesboro again for The
Moss Portfolio’s biannual Dealers’ Meeting. Like
the Society’s Chapter Training Weekend, our Dealers’ Meetings
are an informal, relaxed opportunity for the galleries and frame shops
that carry my work to get together to exchange ideas, learn about innovative
marketing techniques, and hear about what’s new at The Moss Portfolio.
We learn a lot from each other at our Dealers’ Meetings.
One of the items we’ll discuss during the Dealers’ Meeting
is my two new porcelain ornaments. A Star to Guide Them
and Blessed Winter are both in stock and available for purchase.
A Star to Guide Them $45
Blessed Winter $40
August 22-23 I’ll be in Columbus, Ohio, for a show
with my friends at Gallery Art Center. Gallery owner Suzi Campbell
and I will release my new print Buckeye Landmarks, which features
the Victory Bell, the Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium, and the Lane Avenue
Bridge on the campus of Ohio State University.
Buckeye Landmarks, depicting the campus of Ohio State University,
will be released during my show with Gallery Art Center in Columbus,
OH, August 22-23. For more information, please contact the gallery
I’ll be at the world-famous Greenbrier Hotel and
Resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, August 30-31 for a show
with Kitten’s Korner. Gallery owner Ruth Miller and I will
release my new print The Greenbrier-America’s Resort.

Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, WV. For more information,

That takes me up to September, which will be another
exciting month of shows and friends. One event I’m really
excited about is my
Collectors’ Convention at the Hotel Roanoke in Roanoke, Virginia,
September 12-13. I’ve shown you pictures of the painting
for the large Convention print, which is titled Thomas
Jefferson, and now I’m ready to show you the painting
for the small Convention print.
Hotel Roanoke will be released as the small feature print for my
Collectors’ Convention September 12-13 at the Hotel Roanoke in
Roanoke, VA. In addition to the hotel and conference center, the
print depicts St. Andrews Catholic Church (a favorite of mine) in the
background. For more information, please contact The Moss Portfolio
I hope to see you soon!
