A great work of art is that which moves and touches one's spirit and adds to one's experience of the world, but does not
impose on one's values. It lets one take from it what one wants or needs.
(Maritza Burgos)


Our club meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the months of September, October, and November, (skipping December) and
January, February, March, April and May. We meet at the Grove Family Library (101 Ragged Edge Road) in Chambersburg,
PA from 7:00 - 9:00 PM. Our programs are free and open to the public, one need not be a member to attend. We offer
presentations and critiques of interest to creative artists and photographers.
                                     NEWS AND COMING EVENTS

At the September FCAA meeting it was suggested that Alliance members might be interested in forming a group for artistic
get-togethers through Meetup, an online social platform for people to organize or facilitate local groups that meet in person
to share interests, identities and activities.  Meetup helps people find others who share their interest or cause, and form
community groups that regularly meet face-to-face; it will be a good way to get in contact with younger people who are arts-
oriented, so they can learn about the Alliance.  There are all kinds of meetup groups for all kinds of topics like hiking, book
clubs, artists and musicians.  Events are posted and emailed to members who can RSVP on line; there is no cost to
participate. Alliance member Dallas Coble will start up our group; contact her at if you’d like to
help. To see what it is all about visit and click on Arts & Culture groups within 25 miles of
Chambersburg; she will have it up and running soon if not already!
