MARCH 2011 MEETING

Highlights from our March program:

Kay Worz gave our March presentation about how to present our work for competition.

Kay explained how she sometimes uses L-shaped mats to help with cropping a completed painting. 
She will also use this method with a viewfinder to help herself find a pleasing composition.

Minutes March 2, 2011

President Eileen Hulsman called the meeting to order.

Three guests were introduced themselves.

Announcements:
Susan Grogan is teaching a watercolor class at Hobby Lobby in Eastgate.
Fairfield Community Art Center will have the Queen City Art Club exhibit starting on Friday March 18.
May 17-20 will be a show at the Town and Country Fine Arts Center in Kettering.
Deb Ward is doing Art in the Country Workshops.
Deb Ward was asked to exhibit in the Fiber show at the Kennedy Heights Art Center from March 12 until April 23. . She also received her Signature status with the Georgia Watercolor Society.
There is a monthly Second Sunday Show at the Women’s Art Club Barn in Mariemont.
The Women’s Art Club will have a juried show on April 10.

Scholarship
Ardelle Duffy, new Scholarship Facilitator, has contacted teachers at 12 schools about submitting student work for our scholarship competition. April 14 is the deadline for entry. There also was a split-the-pot conducted during this meeting to raise more money for the scholarship fund.

DVD’s
Marilyn Bishop announced that she has purchased three new art DVD’s for the club. These can be checked out for a month by signing the book in the kitchen.

Art Show
Shirley Knollman will be chairing our next club show. This will be held at the Barn 6980 Cambridge Ave, Mariemont, OH 45227. Dates will be June 4 – June 19. The opening is on Sat. June 4 from 5-8, and the last day will be Sunday June 19. More details will be announced, but our June meeting (June 1) will be held at that location instead of our usual place.

Blog
Deb Ward will be taking over the blog from Sandy Maudlin. She intends to have not only the minutes, but also more information about shows. She also reminded people that they will now receive e-mail notices instead of post cards unless they have no e-mail. This should save the club considerable money, since the monthly mailings have been one of our major expenses.

Sale
Joan Miley proposed having a time when we sold art and collectible items with 25% of the money going toward our Scholarship Fund.

Upcoming speakers will be:
April- Judy Anderson – 5 ways to express texture
May – Ken Buck from the Art Academy – gouache on animals
June – Tom Bluemlein -Seven Pearls of Painting (meeting at Mariemont Barn)
July – Ursula LaSorella Producing Art from our failures.
August – Cincinnati Art Museum (change from usual location)
Water colors in the collection – tour with docents
September – Mary Helen Wallace and our Annual Sale
October – Mike McGuire.

Presenter:
Kay Worz spoke on how to enter competitions. She also did the critique and conducted a workshop.

Submitted,
Carol Fencl, Communications Chair
