Café Des Artists To Meet - The next meeting of Café Des Artists will be at Caffe Todos Santos Thursday, Feb. 23, from 3 p.m. to approx. 5 p.m. The 18 artists who attended the January meeting enjoyed a lively exchange of thoughts and experiences, mostly around inspiration. The group decided that at the February meeting we would talk about the recent Open Studio Tour and spend more time discussing work habits – safe work habits and space. Caffe Todos Santos will set a space aside for us to gather, however artists will be responsible for their own food and beverage. All practicing artists are welcome. - Diane Knight, dianekknight [- at -] hotmail.com, 145-0586, Todos Santos
