Welcome to the Art
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.
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.
performances are all at 7:30 p.m., except for the April 26 performance

New exhibitors this time are Hilde Giles
and Jason Sorley, both of whom entered painting that command attention
by virtue of large size and exceptional quality. The paintings are
shown below from left to right as they appear. We have grouped
them by artist again.
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
