Annual Meeting

We enjoyed a shared luncheon while having our annual meeting.  Not many were present, but a lot was discussed.  To keep running our organization, one of the things we will have to do is look for more grant money.  To avoid increasing dues, this will be a necessity.  We are looking for a volunteer to help us with this.  Please consider helping out your organization.  You can call Susan Priest at 607-746-3220.

 If each adult member gave just 3 hours of their time ONCE A YEAR, we would be doing great!    Time to step up, give Sue Priest a call and share your talents!

Group Show - 2011

 We hope you are all creating art for our annual holiday show in  in the Main Lobby of Fox Care, Oneonta. All members are encourage to participate in this show by submitting one piece of work, all mediums welcome. This year's show theme is "Season Favorite."  We will be hanging the show on Monday, November 14, 2011 at 10 AM and take down will be Monday, January 2, 2012 at 10 AM.  Please call Sue Priest to check on time and date changes in case of inclement weather: 607-746-3220.  

Workshops

We would like to hold at least three workshops in 2012.  One suggestion is to have another collage workshop with Kay Parisi-Hampel.  This workshop would include making collage ATC (artist's trading cards) cards to exchange at the end of the session.  We have had requests for more Life Drawing workshops.  So we are considering two for 2012, both having live models.  We need more member input on this...please call Sue Priest (607-746-3220) to let us know your interests.

View our Classes and Workshop page to see photos from our workshops.

Rotating Artists

In this program, artists exhibit their work at local venues.  Our club is privileged to have some of the top-exposure locations in the area.  And despite the economy, sales are being made!  To join and take advantage of the benefits, it costs $15 for the year, due by the end of December.  Please call Jeanette Koji (607-746-3399) and sign up today.  We have locations that accommodate  large collections of art, and others that will highlight smaller collections.  Get your art out there for the public to see!

Fundraiser

We had a successful Wilson's BBQ Chicken sale on Friday, October 21, 2011Thank you to all the members who volunteered their time and to all who purchased chicken and helped make this a successful fundraiser..

A Time to Paint

Soon the winter will come, and when it's cold and nasty outside, what better way to pass the time than to paint?  This is the time to expand your painting inventory in order to take advantage of the many exhibition opportunities we offer!

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!
