Minutes from the Delaware Artist Guild Meeting on November 25, 2013
This month’s meeting was held at the City Arts Center on E. Winter Street.  President Ken Hildebrand opened the meeting at 7:30 and welcomed members and guests.  Minutes were noted on the website with no corrections or additions.  Mike Palmer reported that we currently have 29 members and the treasury balance is $609.66. 

Lynda Elias announced that the date for changing the exhibit at the YMCA is Monday, Dec. 2 at 9:30 a.m.  All are welcome to come and help put up the new show.   Exhibitors who are not available may remove their old work at any time and leave their new pieces with someone at the desk.  Kris Kolb will be sending updated reminders in the near future. 

Tom Conrad invited all members and guests to his house for the Christmas Party on Dec. 16 at 6:00.  The guild will purchase a ham and members are encouraged to sign up and let him know what they are bringing.  More information will be shared through email and the web site.  

Mary Williams will be working with Ken to update the membership brochure.  Members are encouraged to send pictures of guild activities to Mary in jpeg form so they can be added to the brochure.  Lynda agreed to take pictures of the Y exhibit.  The guild agreed to spend $70 to print 100 copies so they can be placed at the Arts Castle, CAC and other places in town.

Lori Palmer announced that her work will be displayed at Something Sweet in Delaware during December.  Diane Hodges shared a flyer from the latest show at the Arts Castle entitled Altered Reclaimed Textiles.  It will be up from Dec. 2 to Jan. 17.  She also stated that the Arts Castle needs volunteers and teachers.  More information is available on the website.

Harry Pape, Chairman of City Arts Center, gave background on the center and invited guild members to consider future cooperative projects between the two groups.  Discussion followed and several suggestions were presented:  a challenge show, a post card, a combined show.  All agreed to continue to share information about the happenings of both groups through web sites.

There was no new business so Ken closed the meeting and invited Tammy Wallace to introduce Justin Kronwetter, who shared information about his current photography show at CAC.
