Mission Statement: Visual artists and supporters encouraging and promoting the arts in the community.
COLLAGE by Pat Nix President
We’ve had a slow spring this year, which made it hard to imagine that summer will have started before our next meeting. This meeting promises to be special. Not only is it our “Spring Potluck” (one day late), but we will also see a demonstration of Batik technique.
The art materials sale will be held at this meeting, as well. Clean out art supplies and art books that you want to donate and PRICE THEM. Remember, one artist’s cast-offs, are another artist’s treasure. Please come no later than 9:15 if you are bringing donations for the sale. (There will be coffee for early birds).
Forest Faulkner tells me that plans for the potluck are progressing nicely, but they could use one or two additional people to come a half hour early (9:00 am) to help with the set up. Don’t forget to bring your own plate and silverware.
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! In honor of Forest Faulkner we are having the first annual Bean Salad Contest. Bean salads will be judged by a critical panel of tasters and a special FF Award given to the winner. Extra points can be earned by bringing a copy of your recipe with your entry.
The SA Members’ Exhibit still needs a chairperson to step forward. I know a brave generous person (or two) is out there just awaiting the proper moment to take the reins of this special event. Believe me; it is not nearly as difficult as the juried show. (I did it last year). Half as much work, twice as much pleasure. We already have a list of people willing to help and should be able to finish filling the jobs at the June meeting. The first job of the Chair will be to revise the entry form and get it to Jim Yount to put up on the website. Next comes planning with the various committees. By September all should be well in hand, and the Chair can take time out to finish paintings for the show.
To all members: keep painting, potting and sculpting. Let’s make this the best show ever.
Thursday June 22,
St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 525 N. Fifth Ave., Sequim
Doors open at 9:30 AM and the meeting will start at 10:00 AM.
This is our POT LUCK
JUNE PROGRAM: Sakura O. Davis will be demonstrating how she creates her artwork in Batik. She will demonstrate wax application of fabric with brushes, tjanting tools and stamps, vat dyeing and brush-on dyeing and the final process of wax removal by ironing-out the dyed fabric. Sakura learned the technique of Batik in Japan. She found working with wax and dye to be an organic process of creation, where she becomes one with the medium.
ANNUAL ART BOOK AND SUPPLY FUND RAISER It is time to clean out your book shelves and your studios. Bring in any art books or art supplies that you no longer use. Donations should be brought in on Thursday morning. Books and supplies will be for sale during the meeting and pot luck. Please help by pricing your donations. (Someone will be there to help you price in the morning)
JUNE POT LUCK
Forest and Ann Faulkner would like to remind everyone that the June Meeting will be our "Spring Potluck." All should be thinking now of what to bring to share. We will all need your help with set-up. If you can help please call or just come in early To help or for more information contact Forest and Ann at 582-9151 or forestandann @wavecable.com Just remember one thing, "No one really likes a Four-Bean Salad."
