President’s message…

Hello everyone,
I am honored to be your president for the Summerville Artist Guild. I’d like to thank our Governing Board Members past and present, for volunteering their time and efforts to make this guild the best it can be.

Thank you to all of you who came out for our Holiday Party. It was a lot of fun getting together to enjoy each other’s company, the spirit of the season and the art of Rob Maniscalco. 

As we welcome in the New Year, I look at all the possibilities that are available to our members. I’d like to invite you to join us in making this year amazing. We have a great group of people; artists, art lovers and friends. I’d like to encourage you all to be the best you can be at whatever it is you want to be. Join a group and/or workshop; share time and experiences; laugh, talk,  help out, create art, be yourself, get inspired and grow.

Our Meet and Greet will be next Saturday, January 18, 2020 from 9:00-11:00 am at the Stallsville United Methodist Church with light refreshments for new and existing members along with anyone who is thinking about joining our guild. Immediately following this; we will have a FREE Basic Framing Class from 11:00 am till noon.  

The Art Forum will meet on Monday, Jan. 20, 2020 from 10:00-12:00 pm. at Art on the Square. 

Katherine Du Tremble will give a Demo/Presentation on Monotype at our Members Meeting on Thursday, Feb. 6, 2020 at the church. Jurying-In; for all SAG Associate Members who would like to bring their paintings to be looked at for a chance to become an Exhibiting Member of the Summerville Artist Guild will also be that evening. Here is Your Chance! Read all about it later on in this newsletter.

Time to get out your paint brushes! In March, we’ll have The Summerville Artist Guild All Members Show. It is open to any member of the guild who would like to hang a painting. You do not have to be a Juried In artist for this show. 

On April 3-April 5, 2020 we will have a tent at the Flowertown Festival. If you’d like to sign up to help out, please email me at artist.jankelley@gmail.com Happy New Year!

For the Love of Art,
Jan Kelley
