July 7, 2011 in Meetings
There were 19 people in attendance, including three new members. NWA now has 99 registered members.
- Our next show will take place November 4,5,6 upstairs at the Quay Market, same as last time.
- A sheet was passed around for people to sign up as volunteers for this show, tentatively titled, New Works.
- There will also be a themed show within this show; details to follow later.
- Due to space considerations and the fact we have 99 members, we will like to have three pictures each but only one may be included.
- There will be a time limit to register.
- The show will likely be juried; details to follow.
- The price will be up to the artist as well as the subject.
- There will most likely be a small fee to register each piece.
So please start working on the pieces you would like to include, as the title New Works, means what it says.
We also discussed The Culture Crawl that takes place August 13 and 14.
- Two pieces remain available to be shown at The Columbian, the new Lafflines at the former Burr Threatre. Email us if you are interested.
- The artist has to be in attendance and two easels are provided.
- Otherwise, artists have registered and are all set to go.
July 16 is Grimston Park Festival Day. Anyone interested in showing art email Brianna Tomkinson or just show up at 4pm and display your art. July 31 which is a Sunday, is the 12th Street Music Festival where 12th st is blocked off to cars between 6th and 8th Avenues.
- NWA is not prepared to have a presence there this year but we are working on getting organized for next year.
- I strongly encourage NWA members to attend these events and provide feedback to the Executive.
- To properly participate we need a portable tent, at least 2 tables, foldable chairs and art small enough to display on the tables.
- Most importanly we need volunteers to set up, meet the public and take down our equipment and actually a place to store the tent etc.
August 13 is Pride Day and the New West Pride Group is hosting an event in Tipperary Park. Anyone willing to diplay their art there is welcome to do so. As you can see, when you include Sapperton Days and Art on the River, plus the weekly Farmers Market, there are quite a few events where NWA can display members work. But this is not going to happen without artists volunteering their time and effort because the Executive is not going to do all the work.
Finally, we continue work on the website. Please be patient and remember that we are all volunteers also.
Enjoy the sun and good luck creating!
