President’s message…

Hello everyone,
I am honored to be your president for the Summerville Artist Guild. I’d like to thank all our board members, past and present who volunteer their time and efforts to make our guild the best it can be.

I hope all of you were safe during the storms set off by Hurricane Dorian earlier this month. Due to the unpredictability of Hurricane Dorian, Dee Beard Dean our demonstrator for the September meeting which was cancelled will be rescheduled. We have a lot of exciting things going on with the guild for you to get involved with.

For those of you who created artwork for a chance to be juried into our Summerville Artist Guild 43rd Annual Judged Exhibit “Dreams and Meditations” which takes place in November, thank you so much. Good Luck to all of you.

Margaret Hoybach’s Watercolor Workshop Painting “Scapes” is still on for Sept. 28, 2019 if you’d like to sign up.

Our next Summerville Artist Guild Members Meeting will be on Oct.3, 2019 at the Stallsville UM Church. Peggy Howe will be our demonstrator for “Drawing and Painting from Life”.

Also on Oct. 3, 2019 Along with our members meeting, SAG members who meet the requirements may bring their artwork to be seen by our Jurying-In Committee for a chance to become an exhibiting member of the Summerville Artist Guild.

We also have a few volunteer positions available to our guild members who would like to volunteer to help out. They are:
• Vice-President
• Field Trip Coordinator
• Historian
If you’d like to know more about these positions or you’d like to help out on a committee please let us know by signing up at a meeting when you sign in, or email me at , to leave a message.

Website: If you are coming across sites that look like they have Chinese writing on them when you go to pull up our website, please check to see that you typed in If you see that it’s coming up with .com change it to .org.  Also, if you have a handbook and it gives the .com for the website please change it to .org. That way when you go to use it, you’ll be all set.

Today as I was finishing up this article and thinking of all the things that are going on, “Dream a Little Dream Today”, crossed my mind. Many times I’ll find myself in a dream state where I want it to continue. Sometimes it’s about rainbows, mountain streams and adventures I’ve been on. Other times, I see the beauty of the flowers, the trees and the people around me. It’s that time of year when all the colors start to change, bringing forth a new palette all around us. Who knows what I’ll dream about tomorrow but for today beautiful blooms of color have caught my eyes.
For the Love of Art,
Jan Kelley
