December 2 - Holiday Luncheon at the Olive Garden

Our annual holiday party will be 11:30 am to about 1:00 pm at the Olive Garden at Richland Mall.  Ask to be placed in the Art Guild room.  We will order and pay individually.  Besides socializing with those nearby, we will also introduce the incoming officers, and honor our scholarship winner and the outgoing officers.

 

December 2 - Holiday Luncheon, Scholarship Award

Our luncheon this year followed the funeral service for Charles Cagle, husband of our president, Nancy Cagle.  Charles has been a great help to Nancy, to all of us, and to many, many others.  He has always been willing to pitch in and help whenever a need arises.  We will miss him.  Nancy was with her family, but she encouraged us to carry on, and we did.

Our scholarship this year went to MCC student Janis Jack.  She received $200, a certificate, a 2007 gallery level membership in the Art Guild, and her lunch.  Janis received the award graciously and passed around examples of her work, which were black and white photography. 

We also collected donations toward flowers for the funeral and a commemorative plaque in appreciation of Charles for his support of art.  The plaque was applied to an easel which Nancy can use to support art.  Knowing her love of puns, we hope this will not only let her know how much Charles meant to us, but will also give her a chuckle from time to time.

December 6 - MCC Exhibit ends

Please come to the Ball Performing Arts Center at MCC to pick up your art works between 2:30 and 3:30 pm unless you have made prior arrangements to have someone else do so.  Nothing can be left, so those not picked up by 3:30 will be picked up by the exhibits committee.  You will have to make arrangements to pick your works up from a committee member, and you will have to pay a $5 per work penalty for failing to make prior arrangements.

Exhibits worth seeing

John Vasek has his wood carvings on display for sale at Award Specialties, 431 Lake Air Drive, between Sanger and Waco Drive.  Most are in a glass front cabinet.  The Red Tailed Hawk that he showed us unfinished a while back is now finished and is placed where it can look hungrily at the songbirds in the cabinet.

 

Several of our members have watercolors on exhibit at Art Center Waco until March 30.  The address is 1300 College Drive, but to get there, go uphill on Highland from College Drive and take the first left.  Exhibitors include Lori Brubaker, Judy Franklin, Joyce Haynes and Dorothy Johnston, along with many other members of the Central Texas Watercolor Society.  There are a great many, very beautiful paintings.

 

We have a new member, Linda Green, who makes embroidery pictures, one of which is at the left.  Maybe she will bring one or two to the next meeting for us to see up close.  She reminded me of an exhibit at the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth.  It is "Regarding the Land," which contains nature photography of Robert Glenn Ketchum and Eliot Porter.  The embroidery connection is that some of Ketchum's photos have been reproduced in Chinese silk embroidery by Suzhou.  The photography is beautiful, but the embroidery is truly amazing.  One is at the right.  The exhibit will continue through through January 7,  Check details at www.cartermuseum.org.
