Dear Friends:
Pat is having a great time on the P. Buckley Moss Society’s group cruise on the Mediterranean.  We are all looking forward to hearing her stories about the trip and seeing her pictures when she returns.  She’ll be back in Virginia just in time for the Museum’s Open House and Barn Show July 10-12.  Pat is excited about the new print edition that will be released at the Museum that weekend.  The Park depicts Gypsy Hill Park in historic Staunton, Virginia.  Pat's delightful rendering of the park features the duck pond (Lake Hutchens) and the historic Gypsy Express mini-train, which appears in the background.  Also included are Pat's iconic Canada geese.

The Park will be released during the July 10-12 Barn Show and Museum Open House in Waynesboro, Va.  For more information, please contact the P. Buckley Moss Museum at 1-800-343-8643 or 1-540-949-6473.

Museum receptionist Penny Field, left, awarded Tina Sallee, right, of Mt. Carmel, Tn., her gift certificate for being the Monthly Mystery Winner for June.  Tina and her family were passing through on June 25 on their way home from vacation and decided to visit the Museum.  What luck!  For more information on the Museum’s Monthly Mystery Winner Program, please see my February 11, 2009, newsletter.

The P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children’s Education sponsored its annual Summer Art Enrichment Program for children aged four- to five-years-old that was held at the Moss Museum.  There were two one-week sessions, with around twenty children per session participating, June 15-26.  This year’s theme was “Going Green—Learning About Our World Through Art”.  The children were provided an opportunity to discover color, with a special emphasis on the color green, and to explore their world through many different mediums, learning how common, every day items can become vehicles for art.  The children’s artwork was exhibited at a reception at the Museum the evening of Friday, June 26, with over 100 guests attending.

Teacher Sharon Morris and her daughter Ellen showed the children how to make a stabile.  Here, they are painting rock bases for the stabiles.

Children picked out flowers to pound onto fabric so the colors would stain and make colorful designs.

We would like to give a special thanks to teachers Sharon Morris and Leslie Allen, Lance Allen of the P. Buckley Moss Society office for providing games and music, Sandi Swartz of the Foundation office, and the staff of the Moss Museum.
Pat and The Moss Portfolio would like to wish you a joyful 4th of July, a.k.a. Independence Day.  We hope you will join us in taking a moment to remember our Founding Fathers who wrote and signed the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, as well as our soldiers who have fought to win and (still fight) to defend our freedoms.
Happy 4th of July!
