Paint Box Art Guild
September 2, 2020
Several corrections need to be made to the minutes of last
Wednesday's Meeting. I am making the corrections with bold
The Paint Box Guild held their first meeting of the fall season, 2020,
outside at the Depot Art Center. Evelyn Rockett called the meeting
to order at 10:00 A.M, and introduced the officers. In attendance
were 30 members.
Monique introduced three new members: Kathy, Mary and Ceile.
Deanna Zerr has resigned. Our total membership now stands at 38
Pat Dall has no workshops planned and asked for a show of hands
of those who would be willing to participate, as we cannot have fewer
than 20 participants in a workshop. Pat will try to find a location to
conduct a workshop.
Mary Williams of the Denver Credit Union, at Mineral and Broadway,
has space for us to hang 15 pieces, but will need specific information
on each painting to be installed on Sept. 10, 2020.
Our October 2021 Juried Show will be held at Bemis Library.
Betty Carr and Rosemary Laughlin are planning our Christmas
luncheon for Dec. 2, 2020, at Angelo’s Restaurant.
Beth Narva gave us suggestions on how to most efficiently present
ourselves when we are the member in the Spotlight by using 5x7
note cards, and no more than a 10 minute summary, while members
need to politely listen.
B.J. McLean named the many recipients of greeting cards from the
Guild during the past year.
Sharon Rose Chinn reported since our library is inaccessible due to
the pandemic, that we can find many art videos on “Streamline Art
Videos” by Eric Rhodes.
Merrie Wicks and Marie Bouziane plan to continue arranging paint-outs
thru fall; check your email on Monday to learn location for that week.
There will be no pot-luck.
Linda Lippert reported that as of Wednesday, we have $3,328.38 in the
treasury; all but eight members have paid their dues for 2021. Refunds
have been sent out for cancelled workshops.
Eleanor at the First Presbyterian Church will let us know if we will be
able to meet in their basement after their meeting at the end of Sept.
They will reserve a Wed. spot for us. Meantime, our October business
meeting will again be outside at the Depot Art Center. In case of
inclement weather, we may be able to meet at St. Andrews Methodist,
or First Plymouth Congregational Church. Watch your email for
such a notice.
Our challenge for October will be to draw something BIG!
