Message From Our President

July 2015
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 sweetartlady@aol.com 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 summer.
