Events This Month
The year is winding down, but we don’t seem to be slacking off yet!
ENDEAVOR GALLERY: Shryl and her crew have just installed the Winter Quarter Exhibit and the hours have been extended for the season so that the gallery is now open from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. ( Of course, we WILL be closed on Thanksgiving…). Members please note that if you are not currently exhibiting in our Gallery, but would like to do so in future shows—contact Shryl Miles at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know that you are interested in participating in future rotations!! The gallery is pleased to show works in ALL media, so don’t be shy!!
Our October PHOTOGRAPHY Show has come down, but I want to thank everyone for helping to create another beautiful and successful show. Congratulations to Luke Messer, whose black and white photo of Mt. Hood was the recipient of the Winner’s Choice balloting. Luke received the rosette and $100 cash prize when the show came down on Oct. 30th. A full list of award winners and some photos of the exhibit will appear on our website (www.sprarts.org
) as soon as I can get it posted…
So—go create some “art”— whatever your choice of medium—and think about sharing it with us at some point! Hope to see you at an event SOON!
Lunch & Learn
November LUNCH and LEARN program: another event you won’t want to miss.
We will meet on our usual “third Thursday,” November 19th, in the Conference Room at the Museum complex (diagonally across from Endeavor Gallery) beginning at Noon. Bring a sack lunch and prepare to be inspired!!
Our own artist extraordinaire—Bernie Fierro—will be giving an illustrated talk and leading a discussion on (roughly) The Process of CREATIVITY and finding INSPIRATION” Bernie has an amazing resume and has been creating art in a wide variety of media since his youth. His works can be found in private collections all over the US; and he has numerous awards and accolades to attest to the quality and originality of his creations. Bernie is a wonderful teacher and he has a lifetime of experience to share with us. This program should appeal to “artists” in every genre and at every skill level, so do plan to attend.
Our Members-only WESTERN ART SHOW is now up and hanging at Cochise College Benson Center through the month of November. Thanks to everyone who is participating—its another great exhibit!!
The RECEPTION for this show will be held at the college on Thursday, November 12th from 5 till 7 p.m. This is a POT LUCK affair, so bring a dish or a desert or a salad or whatever you like and come view the art and socialize with fellow members! This is always a fun event.
Shryl and Charline will be selling raffle tickets for one of Brenda Peo’s wonderful wire horses; and there will be voting for the People’s Choice award ($100.00 cash Prize) to be handed out at the end of the month when the ballots are counted and the show comes down. Bring a friend, bring a neighbor, bring some food, and come Celebrate the Arts!!
Next up will be the Celebrate The Arts painting show in March.
