Refreshment for June.
meeting is from
I want to tell the membership that I was disappointed with the turn out at
the last meeting. We had a great demonstrator and they missed a lot. If our
members plan to enter one of our shows and can't make the meeting before,
they should call the chairperson and sign up for a time to sit. Sitting is a
fun time to get to know others in our organization and share art with each
other and meet the public who come to see our show. I plan something to up
date our web site and will talk about it at our next meeting. See you there.
1:30PM in Liz Johnson Room of the Douglas County Library in Minden
Pre-Meeting, since Margaret Biggs had to leave early. She reminded all to
check the entry restrictions of no sawtooth hangers or other non wired work
for the Carson Valley Days Show.
Receiving is 10:30AM to 4PM 6/8.
Nothing is received after 4PM. Reception is Friday, 6/9, 6PM to 8PM.
Bring your tasteful snacks and goodies for our invited guests. Be
sure to sign up to help sit the show. You never know who'll show up at any
time, and what you'll learn from them, besides showing and selling
paintings. We'll fill in the sitting times at registration.
We have one, maybe two, student Metal Sculpture entry(s) for the CVD
A reminder to pick up your paintings from the Carson Valley Museum. They are
setting up a new photo exhibit for Carson Valley Days.
Laverne Lightfoot gave an especially good,
new insight on Plein Aire painting. Even though she's teaching, Laverne
recently attended a Camille Przewodek workshop; who in turn has been
studying under some of the leading eastern artists. As good as she has been
in the past; Laverne passed on some valuable understanding of reading and
presenting the lighting in the scene. You had to be there to appreciate it,
even helped me with my understanding of lighting in my photography. Our
demos are presented to help each of us improve the understanding our art.
Laverne left at 3:15PM to beat the traffic back to Reno.
Nancy and I regret missing our last
meeting; at which Billy Bliss gave his usual keen, irreverent look at where
art has come from and where it is going. He said it was stuff he had
presented at the Brewery Arts Center; but he is never the same and always
insightful. Those of you, who were not there, missed a good one. The
attendance was low, it's time to get with the program we're presenting.
3:15 Regular meeting
The April minutes are in the news letter.
Helen Martin gave the treasurer's report.
Still quite solvent and able to afford the supplemental scholarships, the
membership approved. Webmaster, Gorden Pefley, made a plea for information
to make our website exciting and useful for all to use. We have gotten so
many new members through the website. They accessed it, before coming to our
area. We need images of our newer work in our photo galleries.
Nancy Kilburg gave a report on the Mini
Show at the EFG. Details elsewhere in the newsletter. A tape of the show
has been on the local CATV, Ch 26. It showed more of the EFG than the Mini
Show; but we shared the cost.
Our scholarship committee of Beth Bosmans,
Mechelle Johnson and Robert Anderson have awarded four scholarships. This
was the first time at Whittell and all five applicants were so good and well
prepared; it was especially tough job selecting the winners. The $1000
award went to Sarah Angstadt, for her completely computer generated work.
The $500 award went to Sebastian Diaz, for his photography, he always has
his camera with him. The committee missed the Whittell Annual Awards
presentation and dessert buffet at the Edgewood Country Club. There were
four talented applicants from Douglas. The $1000 award went to Niles Crowe,
for his pottery and desire to be an art teacher. The $500 award went to Lisa
Shumaker, for her general art and desire to pursue art as a therapy. All
seem headed to UNR.
Keep June 20 on your calendar for the CVAA
field trip to the Nevada Museum of Art. We will have a Docent led tour of
the Paxton Collection; followed by lunch at the Muse' Cafe. We will be
carpooling from the Ironwood parking lot, by the theater, at 9AM.
Linda Townsend is collecting paintings
for the Reno Symphony silent auction at their 4th of July Concert. The
concert will be at the Town Park, up the street; because the Mormon Park is
Linda Townsend, Mechelle Johnson and Dorrine Saduilak are working on the

number of entries per artist will be limited this year. Details at the June
The Cathy Quell
is September 9-10-11 and costs $180. She will be presenting
backlighting this year. There will be two days at WNCC and one day in Genoa.
In this busy time, remember to have some paintings for the In House
Show, at WNCC, 7/1 through 7/31. Details at the June meeting.
Mark Thompkins will be our demonstrator for the June Meeting.
