MINUTES - SEPTEMBER 4, 2013

Deb started the meeting a little late as we were all enjoying shopping at the Art Supply and Book Sale. The items for the sale were donated by Mary Marxen’s daughter. The proceeds from this sale will go to “Young Artist Award Fund“. The sale brought in a lot of members for this month’s meeting. Members were able to continue shopping after the meeting. There was also a box that members could donate supplies or money to the Art Academy.

Workshop:
Deb said there was a cancellation for the Fran Mangioni Workshop if anyone was still interested. The rest of the payment for the workshop is due next month.

She reminded everyone that there will be a spring workshop put on by Carol Carter.

Officer Nominations:
Deb again passed around nomination sheets for members to sign up for or nominate someone for the club’s officers. She will do this again next month and then in November announce the new officers.

Evergreen Show:
Members entering their work in the show will need to drop off their paintings on Sept 19 between 9:30 and 12. If you want your name and work in the show’s program you will need to pre-register with Joyce Grothaus by Sept 10. The Show’s reception will be on Sunday Sept. 22 between 12 and 4.

You will need to pick up your paintings after the show on Oct. 27 or the following Monday.

We still need a few members to volunteer to sit the show. Shirley Knollman will be passing around the sheet for signing up sitters.

Treasurer:
Sally gave us a update on the clubs finances. The money we are making from the Art Sale today will go for the Young Artist Award given in the Spring of 2014.

There was some confusion on the cost of the Evergreen Show. Sally said that Evergreen picks up all the expenses of the show including post cards.

Guest:
Ariel Williams was a guest today . She is changing careers and is interested in painting watercolors. Ariel found information about the club on the internet.

Lori Meyer was here today and has joined the club. She comes all the way from the Dayton area and recently attended the Christopher Leeper workshop.

Announcements:
Deb Ward has a painting in the Watercolor Society Indiana Show. She will also become a signature member of the Ohio Watercolor Society along with Jean Vance.

Marilyn Bishop recently had a small home d├ęcor shop accept some of her small paintings for their store.
