UPDATED August Meeting

August's meeting will be on the SECOND Sunday of the month, August 8. We have reserved the space at the Darien Municipal Center from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and will have TWO presentations as well as some work time.

Our theme for the day is "Paper, Paper, Paper." Beginning at 10:00 a.m., we wil enjoy an informal presentation by Susan Clark of Graphic Chemical and Ink on their vast selection of Asian papers. This is a local company with a wide variety of art papers and other supplies. Susan will also take our questions and provide time to browse their paper selection. Then from 1:00-2:30 p.m., Andrea Harris, artist representative for Strathmore Artists Paper will present, "The Essentials of Paper," a hands-on presentation including the history of paper, how paper is made, and different types of art paper. Samples will be provided as well as a chance to try out many of the Strathmore papers. In between presentations, we will have time to work on our own projects, chat and eat, and take a look at each other's work. You may come for all or part of the day. Our normal $5 studio fee applies.

We may also have a special artist guest who would love to see our collage, assemblage and mixed-media artwork. We can't tell you who this artist is, but if she is able to attend, it will be a great honor to us and you will be happy to have had the opportunity to show your work to her!

Bring the following: Projects in progress that you want to work on (remember time and space will be somewhat limited), recent completed work to show each other and our special artist guest, a lunch and beverage, snacks to share, note-taking materials, items for the monthly swap table.
