Message from the President
Due to the flu, I missed the first meeting of the year. I am looking
forward to the February meeting when I can meet everyone. I hope to have a
good and successful year this 2005. We are going to have some wonderful
demonstrations and art shows to offer everyone. Last years "Mini Show" was
amazingly wonderful, for us a first show of its kind, and I know this years
will be even better as well as the shows at WNCC College and C.V.I.C. Hall.
We have great talented artists with this group. I hope to see more of
this talent this coming year
.Your President, Mechele Johnson

The East Fork Gallery Board voted to repeat last years Miniature
Show and hold it sometime in May since it was such a success. CVAA is
looking forward to working with the gallery on the project. So all
CVAA artists are encouraged to start painting and framing their miniature
size 5" x 7" image or less.
Frames can be any size. Have them ready for
the judged show. Any media is acceptable.

|Minutes of January Meeting
Forty members and guests were in attendance. It began with the
Induction Ceremony of new officers: Mary Sandhagen, Vice President, Nancy
Clarke, Secretary; Helen Martin, Treasurer. New President Mechele John was
home recovering from the flue. Each received a fresh carnation and a special
name card from Induction Chairman, Janice Frost and assisted by Beth
Demonstrator Ginger Rose, watercolorist, showed us how to paint
pansies. She emphasized "practicing" to learn how water acts on paper and
how it affects the paint. She started with the flowers and the large petal
of each bloom, doing a semi wet on wet technique It was most enjoyable.
The business meeting started at 3:00 pm with Mary Sandhagen presiding. A
card was passed to be signed for Tom Sexton who had a stroke a few months
Helen Martin gave the treasurers report. She reported that checks will
be mailed to two of our CVAA Art School Scholarship winners. One in Oregon,
the other in California.
Jan Rollenhagen will be our February demonstrator, talking about framing
miniatures and pricing paintings.
The Carson Valley Museum and Cultural Center likes our
paintings hung on the walls and asked that they be left up through the
middle of February. We are to pick them up at any time that week and sign
the "sign-out" booklet the Hostess at the center has at her desk.
Linda made a motion to do the Miniatures Show again at the East Fork
Gallery in May. Janice seconded the motion. Mickie filled in more
information about the Miniature Show. New members would like more specific
information on events be brought up at the meetings. This sounded like a
good idea to most.
(At board meeting it was decided to bring a flyer-type information sheet
to each meeting for new members.)
CVAA will have the annual show at the WNCC (Western Nevada Community
College) in March called the "In-House Art Show". Two paintings per artist.
A local organization interested in the Arts (selected by members at the
February meeting) will choose a painting for their use. All paintings are
||The artist whose painting gets
chosen by the selectee will be given $200 by CVAA. Beth was nominated to
chair this show and will bring in names of these organizations for the CVAA
members to vote on at the next meeting which will be the recipient of a
painting of their choice.
Mary suggested that demo-artists be reimbursed for
gas mileage if driving from Reno or Markleville. Nancy Kilburg suggested $40
for gas to demonstrators coming a distance. Beth spoke up saying we are
already spending what our budge can afford on speaker fees. Demonstrator
Ginger Rose thought the present fee of $35 was enough, remarking that she
considered it an honor to be asked. Others suggested we raise the membership
fee to $25. Mickie replied, the artist has the option of either doing the
demo for $35 or refusing." Lynn Kelly moved we leave it at $35. It was
seconded and approved.
Mickie Fowler, a former President, said all correspondence should be sent
to the CVAA Post Office Box 2048 which is our business address printed on
the top of the monthly Newsletter.
It was suggest to have another art show at the Genoa Musem in Genoa and
at the Carson Valley Museum and Cultural Center. Mary Sandhagen will ask Ron
Funk about the Genoa Museum and Janice will contact the CVMCC (Carson Valley
Museum and Cultural Center. The meeting was adjourned.
