Four Important Points

Hello Artists,

A few things, first, check your promotions folder or junk mail  if you didn’t receive the meeting invitation already sent.

Second, The Library in the large conference room has wonderful artwork and photography featuring  Lori Burchinal, Jay Stocks, Deena Millecam, Susan Dart, and two other artists work.  They are hosting an Open House on Monday, November 14 at 7:00 PM.  Hope to see you all there!

Third, a reminder that we will be presenting our Uintah Mountain Artist group, our intentions and goals to the Chamber of Commerce at their luncheon on Tuesday, November 15 at noon at the Golden Corral.  If you want to show 1 or 2 pieces of work be there by 11:30, and bring your own easel.  You can buy lunch if you’d like but it’s not necessary.

Fourth, our next meeting is Wednesday, November 16.  I know…busy busy busy!  Creative people tend to be busy people…true?

And think on this….we need someone to oversee the “Trees for Charity Event” Artwork will be displayed in the back foyer, and the UBOC Christmas concert also wants artwork displayed that Saturday, Dec. 3rd and someone needs to oversee that Event,  Be prepared to volunteer!  We’ll talk about these needs on Wednesday

Till we meet again…
