Message From Our President

February 2015

January started off with a full agenda for the ACA Board and an exciting General Meeting capped with a truly interesting demonstration by Deborah Pepin using alcohol ink to create evocative dreamscape artwork. It was rewarding to see all of the members very engaged by her demonstration, asking lots of questions and saying that they are going to give it a try. Thank you Deborah.

Thanks to all of you who helped kick off the year for ACA. And thanks too to the new Board members and committee chairs and to the members who agreed to stay on to serve the needs of ACA. A separate list of Officers and Committee Chairs appears in this Newsletter. You should feel free to share with them your ideas and suggestions for how ACA can better serve its membership.

ACA members, Lena Bradford, Marilyn Torchin, Sue Porter, and Annette Nordine, won the drawing held during the general meeting to determine which ACA artists would submit artwork to Chris Sorensen’s annual February show, “Artists of the Gallery”, which receives January 31st, Saturday. This show is open to artists and organizations that rent space at CMS Studios. We are happy to have Lena, Marilyn, Sue, and Annette “fly the ACA flag” for us at this show.

February will be an equally busy month with preparations for receiving February 21st for ACA’s March Membership Show being held this year in ACA’s own gallery at CMS Studios. This show will provide you an opportunity to earn points toward ACA Signature status, by helping with receiving and judging, and by receiving an award for your artwork in the show. So, plan to participate on the 21st. It will be fun.

February 14th is the day you traditionally show your love for that special someone in your life, and this year it is a day that you will be able show your support for your fellow members at ACA. Come to the General Meeting and Demo, where Diane Breuer will demonstrate pastel portrait technique. There will be refreshments and time to visit and meet the newest members of ACA, and to visit ACA’s gallery and the Showcase Wall which in February features the acrylics of Gail Daley.

January’s Message still holds for February and the rest of 2015: Paint, Hang, and Engage. ACA is here to support you in your goals as they relate to creating fine art. Let us know what we at ACA can do for you and what you’d like to do for ACA and your fellow artists. We encourage you to submit your art to the gallery if you haven’t yet done so. The gallery is also a fun place to engage with your fellow artists and with Art Hop visitors.

See you in the Gallery
