Minutes for the Delaware Arts Guild Meeting, February 27, 2012

The March meeting returned to the Delaware Public Library with Lynda Elias filling in for President Lindsay Criswell.  Mike Palmer was also absent but reported that there is a $400.00 balance in the Treasury Account.  Minutes and announcements are available at our web address. 

Lynda reviewed the information about the upcoming Arts Castle show that was posted in the newsletter.  The following prize amounts were agreed upon:  Best of Show - $100, First Place - $75, Second Place - $50 and Third Place - $25.  Ribbons will be given for Honorable Mention.  Pat Getha suggested that Dick Blick or other businesses be approached for donations to use towards Honorable Mention winners.   The Arts Castle will be helping with publication of the event.  If you are interested in having one of your works on the postcard, send it to Lynda on a jpeg.  Barbara Stover will be printing the labels so your information should be sent to her.  A copy of the form is in the latest newsletter.

Janene Jackson shared information about an upcoming Artiscape themed fair on April 12-15.  Information can be found on

Tom Conrad reminded the group that the new Richwood Bank on W. William Street is seeking art to display in their building.   He currently has 10 paintings there.

Diane Hodges suggested that members get involved in the upcoming First Friday activity in July.  The Arts Castle will be sponsoring several activities that celebrate 200 years in Delaware (in conjunction with Columbus’ 200 year celebration).  More information will be forthcoming.

We will be discussing the Delaware Arts Festival at the April meeting so come prepared to sign up for volunteer time and art to display and sell.  We will also need to determine a new slate of officers at this meeting.  Lynda stressed that without a President and Vice President there may not be a guild.  She asked for suggestions of ways to make the positions more comfortable for members with busy schedules, etc.  More information about the position will be shared on the website and newsletter.

John Quick will be our speaker next month so the meeting will move to the Ceramics building on Henry St.  More details will be on the website and newsletter.

Since there was no additional business, the meeting was closed and Lynda introduced Pat Getha who shared her experiences as a painter of miniatures. 

Respectfully submitted,
Virginia Corwin, Secretary
