We will observe sales and community reaction to theexhibits prior to the Operations Board making it permanent.Read about our coming Point of Sale (POS) system that willsave the sitter’s time and paperwork, as well as bring ourbookkeeping up to 21st Century standards.Many art shows opportunities—juried and unjuried—arehappening in the surrounding area. Continue to participateand to “Make art!”
 — Tomi Olson, President
The new “Point of Sale” system being installed into thegallery is an easy-to-use touch screen (computer screen)like you see at any fast food counter when they take yourorder. Just by pushing a few buttons, it will computerize thehandling of sales, log in and out all art work in the shows,maintain membership records and so on. You will see thatmost of the paperwork you do now will be done by themachine! You’ll love it! Key people will learn how to use it atfirst and then show the rest of us.
