Minutes for the Delaware Artist Guild Meeting, October 28, 2013

The meeting was officially opened by President Ken Hildebrand at 7:30 with an introduction of new members and visitors. Members were reminded to check the website for minutes from the September meeting. Mike Palmer was absent so Ken reported a balance of $532.66 in the Treasury and a total of 19 paid members for this year. Members were invited to give their dues to Ken tonight or as soon as possible. 

Lynda Elias explained the process for hanging our art at the YMCA. It was decided to put up new work in December. Members are encouraged to bring 1 to 3 works and have wire hangers on the back. Ken will send reminders through email as we get closer to the date. 

There was no new information regarding the Newsletter from Kris Kolb. 

Tom and Pat Conrad have agreed to host our Christmas party again this year. The party will be on December 16 at 6:00 p.m. at their house at 197 W. Lincoln. More details will be shared at the November meeting.

Our next meeting will be at the City Art Center where Justin Kronwetter will tell us about his photography. We will also have an opportunity to view the City Art Center Exhibit. Henry Pape, Chairman of the City Art Center will also talk to us about possible cooperative projects in the future. 

Diane Hodges encouraged members to attend the upcoming Arts Castle Holiday Arts Affair. It begins Thursday, November 7 with the Green & Glitzy Preview Party from 6 to 9 p.m.  There will be regular shopping hours on Nov. 8, 9, and 10th with works for sale from 90 plus artists.

There was no other new business so Ken adjourned the meeting and introduced Louise Minor of the Columbus Museum of Art who told us about the CMA’s current exhibit, “George Bellows and the American Experience”. Bellows, a Columbus native, is best known for his bold, gritty paintings of life at the turn of the century.
