Just a note from the President to remind you to have a wonderful summer with your family and friends. The Board of the Creative Arts Society is busy working on the changes that were made this year pertaining to quarterly meetings versus the monthly agenda that was in place since the inception of CAS. Some of the changes that affect each of you has to do to the selecting of Officers for 2017. I am asking each of you to think about your set of talents and skills and consider sharing those skills with all of Creative Artists. We need several positions filled and we want volunteers to fill these slots. Some of the positions to be filled are Treasurer, Newsletter and Website Liaison. I know we have members in the group that would do very well in this important positions. No one would have to take these positions without being trained and you would always have the full CAS Board behind you and supporting you every step of the way.
Link & Pin Juried Exhibit – We were notified by the owner of Link & Pin that we were scheduled to exhibit our art in August instead of October. This means we need to rush a bit to get ready for this exhibit. In the “Call for Art” each artist can submit 3 pieces of art for the jurying process. To be eligible, the waiver and release must be received, hanging fees must be paid and this exhibit has an entry fee of $24. In order for the pieces of art submitted for the jurying process, all must be received prior to the artwork being sent to the juror. The Juror will be Veta Winick. I want to thank you for managing this art business venture timely and promptly. You will also notice that the Call for Art stated no size for the three pieces of art other than one large and 2 small pieces. The reason for stating it this way is to give the artist a choice of submitting their three best pieces to this juried exhibit.
I look forward to seeing each of you at the September meeting at the ACC Pinnacle Campus. Joan Lawson has a great program planned for this meeting. You won’t want to miss it. Sharon Bibbee, President.
