Looks like we have a lot to do again this month, so please mark your calendars…
Lunch & Learn
Click Blog on the menu bar above for the October Lunch&Learn, a talk and demonstration by member artist Sylvia Turner on EARTH PIGMENT WATER COLORS. Sylvia is an accomplished artist and instructor in many media; and she creates these paintings from materials she finds and prepares herself from various minerals, clays, and other natural substances.
The finished paintings have a soft and delicate look that is exquisite. Check it out!
PHOTOGRAPHY SHOW: Is up and it’s beautiful. It will hang at the college through October 29th, and come down on October 30th. I encourage everyone to come check out the beautiful images at your convenience.
The 2nd Annual Celebrate the Arts Open Photography show is a huge success—with nearly 200 gorgeous photos on display at the college through the month of October. Our judge, Dr. John Schaefer, stated that he was amazed and delighted with the quality of work on display, and I would certainly have to agree with him!!
Although Dr. Schaefer was rather stingy with awarding ribbons this year, I know that everyone who entered should be very proud of their work; and if you DID get a ribbon—consider yourself blessed. Congratulations and THANK YOU to everyone participating in the show—all 65 of you!!
Best of Show: Gloria Fraze—“The Yellow Taxi”
Western Art & Photography Show
The show will hang at Cochise College Benson Center during the month of November. Works are to be turned in at the college on Thursday afternoon, October 30th from 1 till 6 p.m. That is the same day/time that photos NOT being used in the western show must be picked up, so as to make it as convenient as possible for everyone. There WILL be voting for a “People’s Choice award for the Western Show—$100 cash prize—to be presented when the show comes down on Tuesday afternoon, November 25th.
We will have a Potluck reception and party at the college on Thursday evening, November 13th, from 5:30 till 7:30 p.m. –to which we will ask you to bring some tasty, but easily consumed, munchies (more about that, later)! And, if you have “art” that can’t be hung on a wall, please consider bringing a table and sharing/selling it –the art, not the table– at the reception—jewelry, notecards, sculpture, etc. We did this last year, and it worked out very well. (People should be thinking about Christmas presents by then!)
So there you have it. If you have questions, send me an email, or call me at 520 586 2611. The important thing is for you to share some of your work with other members and the public so that we can have another amazing show!!
