  • May's Paint Day with Eloise was another success. The activities included learning to watercolor paint with using the subject matter of an autumn leaf . Such techniques such as sponging, masking, mask pick-up, and mister bottle were used.
  • April's Paint Day went well with members attending and participating in the open painting session led by Eloise Ryan, Watercolor Artist.
  • Membership Fees are now $20.00 per year. Still a great bargain to allow for paint days, as listed above and full access and exposure in the Art Club Show and Sale.
  • The vacancy of the building leased by the former Silbough's Store on Main Street in  Pine River, is being renovated into an Art Mall. Rental spaces are available for local artists. Art Club members are signing up!!

Our Club began in 1960 organized by Bessie Hanson, with a modest 5 members. We now have grown to 20 members and would like to invite any artists, of any medium, to join our fun and supportive group. We have an array of talent encompassing watercolor, oil and acrylic painting, drawing, fibers, and jewerly-making. We welcome any medium. Our members  live in the surrounding communities of Pine River, Emily, Backus, Hackensack, and Pequot Lakes, in Minnesota.

Each first Wednesday of the month we meet from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm to paint and make announcements, at the Pine River Warehouse.

Annually we give our members a chance to shine, display and sell their work in our Art Club Show, which takes place during the Pine River Summerfest celebration.

This year's show will feature artist Eloise Ryan, watercolor artist, who will be demonstrating her skills in the medium. Anyone is welcome to try his or her hand at watercolor painting with the instruction of the Artist.
