September Minutes

We started our meeting at 6:00 with a few newcomers. It was decided to start using a basic agenda for every meeting: Old Business, Treasurer’s Report, New Business, Show and Tell, Artist Trading Card Swap.
• Katie Morris reminded members of Bryan Grove’s trunk show Saturday, October 3rd at 1:00 at Quilting on the Square. Mark at Quilting on the Square has generously decided to pay the artists fees so you can attend absolutely free!
• Mary Schock gave a report on the Fall Fest art show progress and we helped make some decisions. Fall Fest is Saturday, October 10th from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Artists of any age can bring up to 5 pieces to show inside the Courthouse. Any medium is allowed- please bring whatever is needed to display your piece. There will be some table space available and tabletop easels work great for small work. If your piece is 3D, it should either fit on the table, be displayed from the floor, or bring a stand for the piece.

Please bring a typed label for each piece about 3x5 inches with the following information:Artist NameTitle of WorkMediumDesignate either PUR (price upon request) or NFS (not for sale)

You may also choose to bring up to a 1 page Artist Bio to display next to your work.

Drop off time is between 9:00 and 9:30, Show open to the public from 10:00-4:00.
Members are requested to bring 2-dozen cookies.
