      Dear Vi and Marbling community,

      An announcement containing the following e-mail information is going out
      soon on our new stationery. The letter also refers to the International
      Marblers' Clearinghouse form that Marie is collecting for current directory
      of marblers'. That is not included in this e-mail.

      Sixteen and a half months to go until opening night!

      Best to all, Laura

      Dear Fellow Marblers,

      You may have gotten wind of plans for an International Marblers� Gathering.
      It�s all true�IMG 2002, �Images, Surfaces, Devices� is in the works. Our
      mission statement is �A symposium covering the historical past and
      traditional uses of marbling, as well as the contemporary expansion of the
      marbling field�. The Gathering will be held at Arrowmont School of Arts and
      Crafts in Gatlinburg, TN, September 4-8, 2002. Arrowmont, considered one of
      the finest schools for art and handcrafts in the United States, has a
      wonderful facility with studio space, a gallery, and room and board. The
      event is being co-hosted by the Southeast Marblers� Guild and Arrowmont.
      Laura Sims is chairing the Planning Board which includes Patty Schleicher,
      Mimi Schleicher and Nancy Lawrence. Jake Benson is the coordinator for
      international presenters and Marie Palowoda has been organizing the mailing

      Please fill out the International Marblers� Clearinghouse form and return it
      to Marie Palowoda. Marie is organizing a directory of marblers that will be
      available at the conference. If you know of people who should get a
      Clearinghouse form please make a few copies and share them. Also, if you
      have additional addresses that you would like to share please contact Marie
      in one of the following ways: email- marie@...,
      phone- 970-352-3524 or post- Marie Palowoda, 2605 W. 19th St. Rd., Greeley,
      CO 80634.

      Another exciting event in our marbling world is the online community
      marblers� site co-hosted by Jill Dolphin and John Ang Cheng Siew. The email
      address is marbling@yahoogroups.com . In the case of an address change,
      access the group through a search engine (ex. Google) using group/marbling
      or community/marbling. It has been a wonderful way to network with other
      new and experienced marblers, as well as providing an informative archive of
      past correspondence.

      Best Regards,
      Laura Sims & the IMG 2002 Planning Board
