We will have our next meeting on Tuesday, October 8, 10:30 a.m. Location: Women's Building, East Texas Arboretum. We may be in the upstairs room for this meeting. Toni will have to let us know. We will finalize details for the upcoming Fall Art Show that will be Saturday, October 12, during the East Texas Arbotetum's Fall Festival. If you plan to have artwork for sale at that show, please bring an estimated number of pieces so we can make sure we have enough stands. After the business meeting, Carolyn Haley will demonstrate jewelry making. Anyone who wants to stay afterwards & paint should bring their supplies.
Our members-only Annual Fall Art Show will be Saturday, October 12, in the upstairs room of the Women's Building at the East Texas Arboretum. (We will set up on Friday, October 11. Time TBA.) Members can bring artwork to show & sell. This is not a juried show. The gates will officially open to the public at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday. Art club members who are exhibiting are encouraged to arrive no later than 8:00 a.m. Saturday to bring in their artworks. Anyone who plans to be there all day needs to park in the lower lot. If you will leave before the end of the festival, you will need to park with the general public and walk. Be sure to tell the gate attendants that you are exhibiting with the art club, so they will not charge you an entry fee. There are generally food vendors if you want to buy lunch from them, or you can bring your lunch. The exhibit will run until 4:00 p.m., at which time those members who are present will need to help take down stands & remove any remaining artwork.
We will be going to the Pierce Museum in Corsicana on Tuesday, October 22, to view their Western art exhibit. We will meet at the Arboretum at 9:00 a.m., and drive to Corsicana from there. In addition to the museum, we will probably go to some antique stores. We will likely return to the Arboretum around 3:30-4:00 p.m. Please e-mail Toni to let her know if you are going, so she can make transportation arrangements.
