September 2014

Summer has quickly passed and ACA is starting the new season off with a bang!
The board has been busy over the summer making changes and planning a very exciting September, so much is happening...
Be sure you put "ArtHop" Thursday, September 4th on your calendar and visit Sorensen's Main Gallery to see ACA's Juried Open Art Show! There will be an Artists Reception and Awards Presentation at 6:00pm. While you're there walk around the corner to view our own ACA Gallery. We are privileged to have two fabulous artists in our Gallery for the month of September; Betty Berk and Vicki Thomas. We will also have live entertainment by the JJ Brown Band. Come and celebrate with us!

Here's the really exciting news...
We are now holding our Saturday General/Demo Meetings at Sorensen's in the big meeting hall. The meetings will start earlier than we used to, 11:00am, followed by a potluck at 1:00 with all the other artists and "Sorensen studio mates" that gather every Saturday to "talk art". It's a very special place to be. Chris Sorensen and Kerby Smith have worked together to create Sorensen's Studio/Gallery into a unique cultural art center that ACA is now a vital part of, and they love our art and activities. It's a dream come true for Chris. His wish is to support and encourage artists in the Fresno area by giving them an opportunity to create and showcase their art. We all share the same purpose. Chris even made a special effort to come by on his bike and talk with the kids at our August ArtHop, "from heArt to heArt", to tell them he liked their art. It was a precious moment, the kids beamed! They opened up the big meeting hall to us and offered to let us use it for our General meetings and workshops, it was an offer we couldn't refuse! A perfect solution to having ACA in one centralized "home". The hall is big and will be wonderful for our demos and workshops with the artist showcased on the big screen! We've been in our gallery for a year and its been great, they've been very good to us. They just installed an industrial fan above our gallery! Several members have sold their art and the exposure to the viewing public is tremendous. Several hundred people come to Sorensen's at every ArtHop. Come join us and share the ACA experience!

Joy to you all, Trudy Sweet President
