We anticipate having more shows and more places to exhibit in the coming months. Also, we will be promoting Visits and Venues, taking more excursions to area and regional art venues. And we are devoting more time to seminars and workshops about artists, art, and art-related subjects.
Our Stitch Witches has assembled the pieces of a long-forgotten quilt belonging to one of our members. This Diamond Jubilee pattern quilt will be sold by raffle on Opening Night, December 13, as a part of our Small Works and Other Good Things show at the Dorchester Center for the Arts. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5 and can be obtained by calling Mary Ellen at 410.228.5193. This quilt is now on display at Hunt Insurance at 436 Race Street. Stop in and buy a few tickets!
We are applying our arts to an old, refurbished 8-pane window. Eight of our members will each paint a part of a single picture. The eight renderings will be assembled in the window panes. The Pleasant Day Adult Day Care Center will receive this piece as our donation to their annual Festival of Wreaths fundraiser. Here's Bob Ritz with the initial sketch.
Our own members are presenting seminars once a month. These are very interesting and each gives us an in-depth look at the artist, the art, and what goes into their creative process. The members that have already presented, can be seen on the "2014" page. Heidi Wetzel, fiber artists and basketmaker, will present on October 29, 2014.
We've just completed our hat-making demo for Showcase. It was fabulous! To see more, go to the page called "2014".
We cut 18 great big pieces of heavy paper, sketched Halloween scenes on them and sent them out to a local elementary school and a local middle school for painting by students. The completed paintings are now on display in downtown Cambridge windows.
We are planning for our second Opening Night of 2014. The December show in the main gallery of the Dorchester Center for the Arts is ourSmall Works and Other Good Thingsshow. On the Second Saturday in December, we will present an embellished reception known as Opening Night. This time it is "The Night of a Zillion Snowflakes." We are deep into creating artistic snowflakes of all kinds. Watch for more pictures here.
