Welcome to the Art Guild's Archives!

 March 2 - Arboretum Exhibit Reception & March Meeting

There will be a public reception from 1:30 to 3:30 Sunday afternoon for viewing of our exhibit.  Please invite any friends who might enjoy seeing it.  There will be refreshments.  At 3:30, we will have a brief meeting.  We will NOT be bringing art of others from our collections as previously announced, however.  We'll do that some other time.

March 3 - Reception for the Arboretum Exhibit

We had a great turnout for both the exhibit and the reception.  In all there were 44 art works by 15 artists, including our "old masters" and some wonderful new members.  Exhibiting for the first time were Hilde Giles, with some light, airy oils, and John Twardowski, with pointillist paintings in warm colors.  If you didn't make it to the reception, drop by sometime to see the exhibit.  The Arboretum is open 9 to 5 weekdays and 10 to 2 on Saturday, except when events are scheduled.  Because there are a number of events, it's best to call before going.  The number is 399-9204.

Above are some of the reception attendees.  Below is a virtual tour, beginning to the right of the front door and continuing to the right around the room.  In some photos, windows between paintings have been cut out.



March 13 - May 7 Art Guild Exhibit at MCC

Be sure take in the MCC exhibit in the foyer of the Ball Performing Arts Center.  The exhibit is especially good at night when there is less glare on the glass in some of the frames.  Also, the hall is open evenings when there are performances, and the performances are almost always wonderful, and always either inexpensive or free.  It is also open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, except during spring break, March 17-21.  Note the change in ending time.  This leaves the exhibit up for the May 6 concert.  Please pick up your art between 2 and 3 p.m. May 7, or ask someone to do it for you.


All scheduled performances are all at 7:30 p.m., except for the April 26 performance at 2 p.m.:

April 24-26: "Tartuffe," Molière’s classic French comedy satirizing hypocrisy and zeal in the name

                    of religion.  For tickets call 299-8283, $10 adults, $8 seniors.

April 28:  MCC Wind Symphony Concert, FREE.

April 29:  MCC Chorale, FREE.

May 2:  "Spotlight," students will perform enhanced concert versions from "Pajama Game" and  "Blood Brothers." FREE.

May 6: Waco Community Band Concert, FREE.

March 14 - 30 Civic Theater Exhibit for Steel Magnolias

Sorry to say, by the time you read this it will be too late to see the exhibit.  Hopefully, many of have already seen it because you attended the play, which was basically tragic, but very funny.  If not, you will have to settle for the photos below.  This not an Art Guild exhibit exclusively; it was juried and hung by Laura Walton, with the theme "Facets of the Feminine."  Nevertheless, most of the paintings are those of Art Guild members.  The first photo below shows the cast greeting the audience on its way out.  One of Jean Blackwell's painting at the left.  The other photos show groups of paintings, continuing to the right around the lobby.
