November 11 - Art We Like - Bring a piece that you own

This month we will do something different. Rather than a having an artist create something for us, we will share art works that we own. Everyone will have a chance to share one piece, and if there is time, we might have a second round. What is on your walls (or tabletops). Why did you buy it, if you did? What do you like about it? Is the artist still around? We will meet at the usual time and place: 1:30 for refreshments, set-up, and conversation, 2:00 meeting, officer election, and art sharing, at the Waco Charter School, 615 N 25th Street. Bring a friend.

 

Remember that it is time to pay your 2013 dues, $15 for basic membership, $25 for gallery membership. Add $5 if you have no email address. Pay before January 1 to be sure of getting in the directory and to get the above discounted prices.

November 11 - Sharing Art We Own

This month we decided to bring art that we own, but that is not of our own creation. Many did that and shared with us what they like about, how they acquired it, and who created it. Some of the art shared is shown below. The names below the art are those of the owners, rather than those of the artists. Kathe's piece is a portrait of her son, long ago. Violet's were done by a quadriplegic, and Charleen's were done by her housekeeper. This turned out to be a very enjoyable time, and some have suggested that it be an annual event.

November 16-17 - Apple Tree Bazaar

We will have the same booth at the Apple Tree Bazaar again this year, very near the front door, a bit to the left, right behind Pat Blackwell's booth. We set up Friday morning 9-12:30, and the exhibit opens at 1 pm. It continues until 5:00 pm on Friday and is open again Saturday 9-4. Those who volunteer to man the booth or set it up and take it down are allowed to display and sell their art. However, the main focus of the booth is to make the Art Guild better known and to sign up new members. If you would like to be part of this, contact Bill Franklin at physicsnerd@yahoo.com or 741-0960.

November - 16 & 17 - Apple Tree Bazaar

Once again we had a booth at the Apple Tree Bazaar. Many thanks to Linda Green, who stayed with the booth all day both days. Nancy Cagle also came on Saturday, and Bill and Judy Franklin set up the booth. Sales were disappointing, only about $100, mostly Linda's jewelry. Our 10% commission on them reduced our net cost to about $50. We hope to have had enough publicity to justify that. We do have one prospective member.

November 19 - Exhibit at MCC

We will mount an exhibit at the Ball Performing Arts Center at MCC on Monday November 19. Please bring up to three (3) hangable works at least 16" x 20", including the frame between 2:30 and 3:30. There is no theme, but nothing can be exhibited which has been shown before at MCC. Please bring your art to make this a great show. The exhibit will end Monday, January 14

November 19 - Exhibit at MCC

The exhibit at MCC will remain on view until January 7. Stop by and see it if you get a chance. Exhibitors please pick up their art between 2:30 and 3:30 on January 7, or get someone to get it for you.  The photos below don't do justice to the art, which is best seen in the evening when there is no glare from the windows. If you can take in an evening performance, you can see both in one trip.
