Second, the artists are of many disciplines: painters, illustrators, jewelers, fiber artists, potters, photographers, glass artists, writers, doll-makers, basket-makers, quilters, sculptors and more. Some of the artists are highly experienced and formally trained in the arts. Some are self-taught. Others are dreaming about developing their skills. Some have lofty professional ambitions. Some are entranced by art for art's sake and just want to express themselves. And others love art and love helping their community.
. . . there was a "coffee club" in Cambridge that was made up of a handful of people who chatted about art. Ten years later, its successor, Wednesday Morning Artists, is a well-known and thriving, loosely-organized group of about 50 dynamic people who bring art alive in Cambridge and the area.
And it's free! We have no Board of Directors, no elections, no by-laws and no dues. We told you we were loosely organized.
We also celebrate Third Tuesdays and have a casual, bring-your-friends get-together. We're not all work.
This organization is unique in several ways. First, while it is true we want to show and sell our work, we take great pride in balancing this with using our skills to help local community-serving concerns such as the Dorchester Center for the Arts, Pleasant Day Adult Day Care Center, Baywater Animal Rescue, the Food Bank's Empty Bowls program, and more.
