t may be mid summer with temperatures

as hot as blazes, but that does not stop us from being just as active as we are in other seasons.
In other words ”and the beat goes on”. For the last few months, our Admissions Committee
has now had two back to back sessions to interview prospective new members.

Our constant goal with the Salmagundain Magazine is to send profiles of our members be they
artists or patrons, plus give a better understanding to our worldwide membership of all we do
continually make Salmagundi great.

In this issue, we feature artist members who reside in France and the Netherlands, Iowa,
Washington State, North Carolina, and North Haven, CT. Having members from all these
various areas, prove that to join Salmagundi, one does not need to live in or near New York City.

In addition, we feature an article on the return of the convection of IAPS, or known as the
International Pastel Society. Salmagundi has always been a strong force of artists who use
pastels as their medium.

It is important to know that Salmagundi honors our men and women who serve in the Coast
Guard, by having a reception and exhibition of about 38 paintings devoted to the duties of this
great branch of our military. Held each year in early July, this event has a faithful following of
members and non-members.

Our featured artists in this issue are artist members Joke Frima, Paula Holtzclaw, Johanne
Mangi, Steve Hill, and Gary Hoff. Enjoy reading their biographies and accomplishments along
with images of their art works.Our Patron Members who gave us articles are Barbara Genco
and Karen Loew.
