With summer now a distant memory and the Holidays just far enough around the corner to keep a full-blown panic at bay, I think it's the perfect time of year to cleanse the "palette," so to speak--and become fully immersed in creative activities, taking on new challenges along the way. That's just what ACA is providing for you.
I'm really looking forward to the Demo and Workshop with Art Sherwyn! Having experienced workshops with him before I can tell you, you will be challenged and inspired by the time you leave! You will "see things" a little differently. You will go home and create! He is a wonderful teacher. All the information you need to sign up for the Workshop, November 8 & 9, is included.
This year we were able to once again, provide scholarships to Junior Artists at The Big Fresno Fair. This is an important aspect of our organization. All Memorial donations, as well as One dollar of Every painting that is hung in the ACA Gallery is donated to the scholarship fund. Encouraging young artists to develop their creativity and display it for all to see is worthy of our admiration. We all started somewhere and I know this will be an investment in their future they will never forget! Graduations to all the winners!
The ACA GALLERY at Sorensen's has become the heart of our organization. It is dedicated to you, our members. Look at all the events and activities that are centered around the Gallery and your art that hangs there. There are two ArtHops now, the Downtown "Second Saturday" noon- 4 and the "First Thursday" of the month 5-8. The November ArtHop brings in a large crowd at Sorensen's! It's really a plus for you to be there to meet the viewing public. Buyers like to meet the artists! And, Speaking of opportunities, I know many of us do lots of other creative things. Check out the flyers for BLACK FRIDAY! Bring your wonderful handmade items to sell and make some cash for the Holidays. You can participate any day you choose, on just one or all three. Tell your friends to come and shop for original art in our Gallery and see the "Holiday Arts and Crafts" for sale!
We sent out a calendar of events FYI for the rest of this year and next for you to print out and "put on your phone". Look at all the exciting events yet to come. We have two shows on the calendar for next year already! While you're doing that, go to our ACA Facebook page and "like" us so you will get all the "invites" that will come up.
I want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!
