Sorry I’m late with a few reminders.
We are meeting today, June 1st for the final meeting before art camp at 5pm the guild building. If you have not already volunteered to help, it’s not too late, this is going to be a lot of fun, and the more artists that participate, the richer experience we will be able to give the children. Come to the meeting!
Tomorrow, The Maysville Cultural Arts District Association is having an accessibility lecture/breakfast/workshop on June 2nd at 8am at the Museum Center. As visual artists, we have been well represented at these meetings…there are a lot of exciting plans for the arts downtown, and I think we should continue to be a part of these plans…try to make it.
The Cynthiana Arts Council is having an art walk July 24, and 25th. There is more information available at their website:
If anyone is interested…it might be a good show. They have a nice website. Maybe the guild would be interested in setting up as a group to promote our region/activities.
Happy Hour For Humanity is having an auction to benefit the UK children’s hospital. Artists can chose to spit the auction proceeds 50%-50% with the hospital or donate all proceeds to the hospital. This could be a good opportunity to get your artwork in front of a new audience…and make a little money. The time frame is short, but if you want to participate, contact:
Jacob Werline has opened a new antique store/gallery downtown on second street next to the Downtown Market Deli. He has offered space to any guild members. It looks like a good opportunity for our local artists to have their work represented in downtown Maysville. I would like to see him succeed with local artists, and I am going to take him some work today. Potters, he has shelves.
Here is his contact information:
Finally, KET came to the museum center and filmed Marjorie’s exhibit for their program, “Kentucky Life”. They are planning to visit her home and do an interview. Doug Hendrickson has graciously given us the use of one of his windows on second street, where we have put a nice display of Marjorie’s work. It makes me smile everytime I walk by…it’s great what a difference art can make to our neighborhood. Now that Marjorie’s exhibit is down, we need to change our website’s homepage. If someone can give me an article with photos, I will put it up!
