Minutes for the Delaware Artist Guild Meeting, March 28, 2011

President Mary Williams opened the meeting at 7:30 with a welcome to members and visitors.  Members were reminded that the minutes are posted on the website and a thanks was expressed to Lindsay and her team for their good work on the website.  The Treasurer’s report indicates that the current balance in the account is $813.38. 

Old Business - Lynda Elias reviewed information about the upcoming Arts Castle Exhibit and asked that members sign up tonight indicating how many pieces they will be putting in the show.  She also reviewed other ways members could participate in guild activities if they weren’t able to come to two meetings.  Lori Palmer motioned that we allow members to participate in the exhibit if they had their dues paid and had participated in two sanctioned guild activities.  The motioned was approved by a show of hands.  The reception will be on April 17 and members are encouraged to bring appetizers.  Additional information about the exhibit is available on the website. 

New Business – Mary mentioned that the guild has agreed to have a booth at the Arts Festival in May but still need to find a tent and screens to use.  Suggestions were made to ask Connie Hoffman and the Hayes Art Department.  It was decided that each artist will take care of their own sales tax on items they sell.  Members will be asked to sign up at the April meeting.

Announcements – April 3rd from 2:00 to 4:00 is the reception for the exhibit at the Arts Castle entitled REVIEW, REPURPOSE, RECYCLE; FOUND OBJECTS IN ART.  Members are invited to attend.

Mary discussed the Escher exhibit that is currently in Akron and asked if members were interested in a guild trip to see it.  The response was favorable so she will check into the details for next meeting. 

The guest speaker for the April meeting is Jay Johnston a Marion artist who paints portraits of sports figures.  His information can be had at

Since there was no additional business, Mary closed the meeting and introduced our speaker, Michelle Stitzlein who shared information about her Arts Castle exhibit. 


Respectfully submitted,
 Virginia Corwin, Secretary
