I am a member of the National League of American Pen Women (NLAPW). Whew – what an ungainly name! Our local chapter, the Golden Gate/Marin Branch, is a group of about 15 visual artists.
We currently have a wonderful exhibit up in the Redwood Foyer of the Marin Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium in the Marin Civic Center. The show is titled “Commitment to Creativity”, and will be up through early January 2013.
Since 2001, our local Pen Women group has sponsored an annual scholarship award to a promising young woman who plans to continue her art education after high school. The student award-winners are invited to exhibit their art in our shows. It’s a wonderful opportunity for them.

The pieces I am exhibiting are “Moths and More Moths”, “Found Treasures”, “Friends of the Eel River” and “Worlds Within”.
