Refreshment for August. Meeting
Meeting Minutes July 28,
2006 Minutes for CVAA
Meeting was called to order at 1:35.
President Beth Bosmans reported that we had received Four thank you cards.
Mechele (as acting Secretary ) read them to the members. One from the
Philharmonic Group, thanking us for our grids and artists who donated paintings
for their 4th of July event. One each from two of our Scholarship recipients
Lisa Shoemaker, and Sebastian Diaz. Plus one from Hiroki Hervin, for his winning
of our first award for Welding work.
WNCC show for July was cancelled because
the college was closed for that month. In September we will be holding a show
for small paintings, there, on grids in the entry area. More to be said about
that show at our August meeting.
The CVI Show, with Nevada Artist
Association, wasn't as good as last year, or expected, as it was our second
show. Linda Townsend said we need to rethink next year’s show. Maybe a three day
weekend. Doreen Sedalick sent a report to our Treasurer. After all the expenses
were deducted there was a $29.84 profit to split. Only a few sales of cards and
a print. Not too good.
Our Mini Show was an excellent show, some
very good art was brought in. Thank you all who made this a success.
Cathy Quiel's workshop is September 8th, 9th , and 10th. Those who are going to
the workshop must have their deposit in to our treasurer by the middle of
August. It is $50 ( non refundable) the balance due during the workshop. The fee
is $180 total, for three days, from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M. each day. She is a
wonderful Watercolorist and great teacher. She has conducted classes in
watercolor for 20 years. She also takes students to a different place in Europe,
Alaska, and Mexico, during the summer months. She makes a workshop fun and a
great learning experience. This workshop will be on back-lighting and textures,
plus a day at Genoa to use what we learn.
September Pot-Luck luncheon will be held at
Nancy Kilburg's home. There will be a white elephant exchange, since this will
take the place of our Christmas Party. Also bring a can of food for the food
closet. We will be honoring Bob Thompkins, for his years of work for the good of
CVAA. His son Mark will be bringing him to our luncheon.
November Scholarship Show is coming up. We
need everyone to do what they can to get raffle prizes for the show. The money
we make on these, selling tickets, plus the show, gives us the money for our
scholarships. The more we make the more Scholarships we can give. Please do what
There was a discussion on giving more
ribbons at this show, as it is the only show we give them. The show we have
given 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ribbons, plus money, and 6 Honorable Mentions.
There are some members who would like more ribbons for categories. In order to
be able to do this we would have to ask for higher entry fees, so we don’t take
away more money for the Scholarships. Also it was suggested that any ribbons
given would be limited to one ribbon per person. We will discuss this more at
the August meeting.
Reiko gave us a good time teaching Origami.
We each made three items and had lots of laughs.
Thank you Reiko!!
August meeting will present Larry Jacox, a
watercolor painter, and teacher from Reno. His work can be seen at The Artist's
Co-op in Reno. See the Record Courier for his Resume.
Mechele Johnson for Ron Clarke,
Larry Jacox grew up in southern
Washington state but has lived in the Reno and northern Nevada area since 1960.
He was an art major at Univ. of Washington in Seattle and finished his degree in
Art Education at UNR.
He worked for a number of years for Washoe
County Schools then switched to the Nevada bureau of Mines where he worked as a
graphic artist, draftsman and cartographer until retiring 12 years ago.
Larry’s work most recently has been largely
watercolors due to an allergy to oil painting materials. His subject matter is
mostly the western area landscape, but occasionally an aviation picture of
people scene sneaks in.
He’s involved with the local art clubs and
has been teaching a watercolor class at the Elder College in Reno for several
years. His work may be seen at the Artist’s Co-op at 627 Mill Street in Reno.
Deposit of $50 in the mail by

Message from Our President
Our last meeting didn't have a large number of members, but the ones who
attended were a good group. We had lots of interaction and great discussion.
Really great input. Thanks to everyone who was there.
Be thinking of raffle prizes for our
Scholarship Show. Please, if you get a prize from a merchant, let Carolyn
Denning know so others don't go to the same merchant. We will have more
information at our next meeting, so try to be there. Our Scholarship Show
Committee is asking for "artsie" cards for Thank You for those people who donate
prizes for our raffle. So if you have some, bring them to our meeting to give to
Time surely is going by fast. Be creative
and get busy.
