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 now.  

We need paintings to exhibit!  If you have never exhibited before but would like to try, this is your opportunity.  Do you have a stash of paintings in your studio just sitting there.... why not get them out where the public can see them.  Your work may catch someone' s eye and sell!  Please call Jeanette Koji (607-746-3389) to sign up today. 

 Then send your check, payable to the Delhi Art Group, to:  Ann Law, Treasurer, 11646 State Hwy. 357, Franklin, NY  13775. We have locations that accommodate  large collections of art, and others that  highlight smaller collections.  Or you can share a spot with another artist.  If enough people sign up for the program, we may consider placing ads in local newspapers to draw more attention to your exhibit.  Don't delay---join today!

Donate a Painting or Print

Being a non-profit organization, we are always appreciative of ways we can increase revenue in order to keep our club afloat.  It was suggested that maybe our artists would like a donate a painting or print which we could sell at the Fair on the Square or Harvest Festival this year, proceeds of which would help defray costs of our classes.  Your name would clearly be displayed as a donor. Please give this some thought and contact Susan Priest if interested.

Annual Art Show

We hope everyone is working on a piece to show at our annual show in Fox Care, Oneonta.  Our theme this year is "Joy."

 Fair On the Square

We will be doing the first and fourth Fridays in July unless some others join Jeanette Koji and Susan Priest and wish to show the other two Fridays, just $5 per night space fee..  Call Susan Preiest at 607-746-3220 if you wish to participate.  Please stop by our tent and say hello!

Fundraiser

We will again be selling Wilson's BBQ chicken on Friday, October 12th between the hours of 10 and 2.  We need volunteers for 1-hour shifts.  Please call Susan Priest at 746-3220 if you can spare some time to help us out.

Annual Meeting

Our Annual meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 11 A.M. in the basement of Immanuel Luther Church, 565 Andes Road, Delhi, New York.  Bring a dish to share and drinks will be provided.  You can call our Secretary, Kathy Moore, 607-865-4734, to let her know that you are coming and what you are bringing for lunch.  This is your opportunity to participate in the Delhi Art Group, meet other artists and make new friends!
