Usually for ACA, July and August are Newsletter-free
months, but we decided that with so much in the works,
we need to keep our ACA members and friends informed of
events so that you can get them noted on your calendars.
First let me share the news that for the first time, the
ACA Board voted to recognize the major contributions of
several of its founding members by awarding Honorary
Life Memberships to Kay Owens, Bea Prince, Marylou
Griggs, and Penny Buller. A
lot of what ACA is all about can be credited to the
early work of these creative and committed artists.
For those of you who have known Chris Sorensen for many
years, you will want to join the celebration of his 90th
birthday being held at CMS studios, in Sorensen Hall, on
Friday noon, June 26. This year we will also be treated
to a special exhibit in the main CMS gallery: “Portraits
of Chris” featuring works by artists of CMS galleries
and others from the community. Happy 90th Chris!
Roberta Davis’ Showcase Wall exhibit of her wonderful
pastels will hang until end of June; then in July we
will see Shirley Unruh’s work on the Showcase Wall.
If you missed Art Hop in June, come in July (the 2nd) to
catch the final month of ACA members art before the
August show “From heART to heART” that features artwork
by ACA family members. For this one, get your grandkids
painting and creating NOW.
ACA’s Gallery will also be available for the month of
September for a “One-Man” show. Last year we had Betty
Berk and Vicki Thomas sharing the gallery in September,
and this year you, or you and a friend, can share the
space… sign up now. Contact Trudy Sweet at
firstname.lastname@example.org with “September Gallery” in the
subject line of your email for details and the schedule.
And finally, an important reminder: plan to submit
artwork for the September ACA Open Show – All Things
September. The show information follows with its forms,
but mark your calendars now: Saturday Aug 29th is
receiving at CMS Studios. We will need volunteers for
receiving and hanging. Let Betty Berk know you will be
there to help.
Here’s wishing you a creative, productive and happy
