Greetings Marblers and Supporters,


With this issue of the Society of Marbling Annual Publication we are kicking off the new Society of Marbling Website at www.marbling.org When you visit www.marbling.org you will enter the site at the Home page. The Home page includes announcements, news, upcoming events, and images of works by the membership. This page is also the portal to the online Annual, a subscription publication for society members.

Accessible from the Home page are five main areas – News and Events,
the Gallery, Membership Info, About Marbling, and Internet Links.
The "News and Events" lists upcoming events and will be updated
monthly with items submitted by the membership. In "the Gallery" we
are currently honoring the late Patty Schleicher, a shining star of
the marbling world who recently passed away from us.  On
the "Membership Info" page visitors can learn how to join the Society
of Marbling and purchase resource tools such as the Directory of
Marblers and the IMG Exhibition CD. To facilitate memberships from
overseas, we are offering the option to pay for your membership and
resource tools online through Paypal.  This will save non- USA
members the cost of expensive bank drafts.


As the Society of Marbling evolves and formalizes, this Web site will evolve to serve the marbling community and the public by reflecting the mission statement of the Society of Marbling. As the website evolves it will include discussion areas, a searchable marbling bibliography, feature articles on marbling written by the Society membership, a member gallery showcasing the works of Society members, and more. The "About Marbling" section will tell the public about marbling and provide education resources, and "Internet Links" will be a directory of marbling related Web sites.


Your input is important in making this site the best it can be. Start now by sending marbling news and events to marie@xxxxxxxxxxxx Send Web addresses for "Internet Links" to webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxxx Along with the Web site address, include a brief description of the Web site and, if possible, the section headings where this site should be listed. Also, indicate whether you are the owner of the site.


We also need to gauge the interest level of the membership in "the Gallery." Here the works of the Society membership would be showcased. The plan is to include a brief bio, contact information, a few images and Web links for each member's gallery. What are your thoughts on "the Gallery"? Would you like to have a gallery page? Send you feedback to webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxxx with "the Gallery" in the subject.


To join the Society of Marbling, please fill out the form in the Membership Info on the website and either pay online or send payment to Marie Palowoda at the address below. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Marie at marie@xxxxxxxxxxxx or the address below.


Best Wishes, Marie Palowoda, Jake Benson, and Dorothy LaFara


Marie Palowoda Art Studio & Gallery 2605 W. 19th Street Road Greeley, Colorado 80634 USA
