Events This Month
Well, it is June, and summer is almost officially here, but the weather is definitely being weird—first it got HOT, and now we are seeing the effects of an early hurricane! Not to worry, it is always nice in Endeavor Gallery, so stop by, check things out, visit with the docents, talk about “art…” And speaking of the Gallery, I am delighted to report that we now have our own Facebook page-find us at Endeavor Art Gallery—so do check that out as well and be sure to “like” us, leave comments, add photos, etc.
In our on-going “Art Around Town” project—this month at the Cochise College Benson Center venue we are showing the beautiful nature and architectural photography of Mel and Larraine Milne. The show will hang through the month of June, so stop by and see the gorgeous pictures of wild birds and other critters, flowers, landscapes, and lighthouses. It’s hard to choose a favorite!
The quarterly exhibit at the Benson City Grille, featuring outstanding works by member-artists Charlie Teel, Richard Etheridge, Donald Grose, Glen Sanner, and Mel and Larraine Milne, will continue to hang through the month of June. It is definitely worth the trip to see the photos and enjoy a nice lunch in a very pretty setting.
And please note that we will be changing out the large art and photography exhibit on display throughout the Benson Hospital at the end of July. Everyone is invited and encouraged to put works in the Hospital venue, so be thinking about those older pieces that you’d like so see out “in public” again. There will be specific information on when and where to bring your work in the July newsletter, so stay tuned. Congratulations to Lisa Sprietsma, who sold her VERY large painting of a white horse out of the Hospital display this Spring!!
OK—so we’re going into the summer doldrums—but it WILL cool off again, and hopefully we’ll have a substantial “monsoon” season with lots of rain and new growing things. Or perhaps you’ll do some traveling or take a workshop. Whatever—stay inspired; stay creative! The big open photography show is coming up in October, and we’ll have our annual member’s only Western Art and Photography show in November, so it’s not too soon to be planning ahead!
Hope to see you soon!
Lunch & Learn
Mark your calendar for our next Lunch and Learn program, which will occur on the regular “Third Thursday” date, which happens to be June 18th this month. Clement Scott will be our presenter, and he is going to talk about and demonstrate drawing and painting those “difficult features”—human ears, eyes, noses and mouths. Clement always makes learning FUN, so bring your lunch and join us at the meeting room in the Benson Museum complex from noon till roughly 1:30 while he shows us how to “turn form with value” and other useful tips. See you there!
Next up will be the Photography Show in October.
