We will meet at 1:30 in the activity room (far end) of the Central Presbyterian Church, 9191 Woodway Drive, and the demo will follow shortly thereafter. We will be wearing masks and maintaining safe distances. Please bring friends (first meeting free), art for Show and Tell, and your own refreshments if you wish to have any.

 

We will hang the Spring exhibit at MCC the following day. If it will be inconvenient for you to bring your art to MCC, you may bring it to the meeting, and we will carry it to MCC.

 

       

April 12 - Art Guild Spring Exhibit at MCC

MCC is now having in-person classes and evening events, so we will return to displaying our art there as we have in years past! You can bring up to 3 works to the PAC foyer between 2:30 and 3:30 on April 12, or you can bring your works to the April 11 demo at Central Presbyterian Church, and we will carry them to MCC for you. Please bring entries that have not been previously displayed at MCC. You may enter works that have been exhibited at the Arboretum or online.

May 9 - Wacotown Chalk & Walk

The two day event will feature chalk murals created by local artists representing local businesses within McLennan County, and a two day market. This will take over three bocks of Austin Ave, and include food trucks. If you want to be one of the artists, go to #wacotown. There is a $75 stipend for materials and several cash prizes. Rules can be found at https://www.powr.io/plugins/form-builder/view/22951208?mode=page&mc_cid=070535df19&mc_eid=277452f384

Also Online: Rocky Kelley's "The Lady of Shalott" with videos of it's making

Rocky is a long-time Waco artist, mostly doing intriguing fantasy. He did a demo for the Art Guild some time ago. There are three videos of him working on "The Lady of Shalott" at www.theladyofshalott.com.

Coming Soon: A Sale of Martha McKinney's Paintings

Those of us who knew Martha McKinney were saddened to hear of her passing this summer. She was an accomplished and prolific painter, who left dozens of unsold paintings, many being her favorites that were never offered for sale. Her family was overwhelmed by this legacy. They donated one to the Waco Art Center, and each of them chose a favorite or two for themselves. That still left 35. When her house sold, and needed to be emptied, they donated those remaining to the Art Guild. We plan to sell them as a fund raiser, either at local events like Art Fest Waco or on line. Those that were priced had prices between a few hundred to over $1000, but we will offer them at a substantial discount. This is a chance to obtain a quality painting at very reasonable cost. We hope you will take advantage of it. Details will be given here when finalized. A few examples are shown below. Remember that clicking on any of these thumbnails will enlarge it.
