August General Meeting Notes

posted Aug 31, 2018, 12:46 PM by Dave Beebe
Welcome:  Diane Harm welcomed all to the meeting.  Diane also introduced and welcomed Joose Hadley from Great Art & Frame.  Joose gave a wonderful, informative presentation and tips on framing your art.  Joose also invited NTAL to set up easels on one Saturday outside Great Art & Frame to display their art – this would give us exposure and also her Shop. We had an introduction from each of our members and news of each of their art sales, shows, etc.

Officers’ Report:  
Secretary:  No changes
Treasurer:  Bank Balance - $2,230.87, Members:  41 

Art Challenge:  Alan Metzger won the last challenge and chose this next challenge for September.  The Challenge theme is “Think Out of Your Box”  Paint a subject or use a technique or medium (pencil, oil, acrylic, watercolor etc.) you’ve never used before; something that would not be identifiable with our normal work.  If you paint realistic try to paint impressionistic or abstract and vice versa.  Paint a new subject matter.  If you’re a painter, enter a photograph.  If there is a famous artist’s technique you like…give it a shot.  Let your creative juices flow, no holes bared.

Old Business: We still need a Chairman for our Membership Show.  We thought it may be easier and less of a challenge for two people to chair this show.  This year’s Christmas Party will be held at Compton Park on December 19, at 7 pm.  Dotty Banker is Chairman and will pass around a list for suggestions for food, entertainment, etc.

New Business: Our next Meeting will be held on September 26, at Compton Park.  We will have our Quarterly Art Challenge “Think Out of Your Box” – bring your art in a large opaque garbage bag, no signing and No Telling! 
We are also having a Rummage Sale at the September meeting - RSVP if you have items you would like to sell or trade, etc., so we can have enough tables set up. 

Our October Meeting will be Show and Tell and Featured Artist. 

Our November meeting will be held the Thursday after Thanksgiving at LEC.  The theme will be “Painting and Wine”.   Alan Metzger agreed to lead a painting class, subject of his choice, and everyone is asked to bring their own brushes, and wine - NTAL will furnish the canvases and paint. 

It was announced that the Board passed a motion to suspend the June, July and August meetings in the future, due to low attendance at these meetings.
