In Memorium

Mary Blumberg , award winning artist, teacher, past president and friend of Gold Coast Watercolor Society, passed away on Dec. 9, 2019. Mary served as President 2001-2003 along with many positions through out many years as a Gold Coast member, serving as Workshop Chair until 2007 when she moved to Maryland to be near family. She was such recruiter for Gold coast that many of our past presidents and board members were brought on board by this wonderful Gracious Lady. For those wishing to honor Mary, a memorial award is being set up in her name. If you wish to contribute, you may contact Gold Coast Watercolor Society.

Gold Coast Member Joyce Hamann has passed away, she was a gifted artist and good friend to us all.
