Welcome to the Art
July 29 - Providence Hospital Exhibit
and staff have enjoyed our paintings, which have been rotated in and out,
for many months, but it's time to move on to other venues. If you have
painting on display in the Providence Hospital Rehab area, they must be
picked up Friday, July 29, between noon and 1 p.m. Because there are
far too many for Linda to haul home, there will be a charge for any
paintings not picked up. Please show up promptly at noon so that we
can be out of the way of appointments beginning at one.
June 28 - July 30 - Carleen Bright Arboretum Show
Be sure to get out to the
arboretum to see our "Sights Around Waco" show. There are 32
paintings on display representing 17 artists. One work from each
artist appears below. If you want to see any of them bigger, click
on the image. Better still, come see them all in person. The
arboretum is open 9-5 Monday through Friday and 10-2 Saturday.

July 16 -
Potluck Painting Critique and Planning Session
had a wonderful time at the Potluck meeting hosted by Nancy Cagle.
After lots of good food and helpful comments about the paintings brought
by members for critiquing, attention turned to future projects.
Many things were discussed, including a contest to design a new logo for
the Art Guild. Possible prizes include a gift certificate to Hobby
Lobby or Michaels. Ellen Foster is looking into getting a gift
certificate from a local restaurant. A suggestion was made to open
the contest to the general public in hopes that it might help to recruit
new members. These ideas will be discussed at the August meeting.
Rose Larkie, Patrick Shade and Ellen Foster were picked to lead this
project. They will be responsible for narrowing submissions down
to a few for the members to vote on.
