The December meeting of the Desert Artist Guild was held at the Ajo Country Club and there was a lot on the agenda. The two most important items were the Federated Church Art Show & Sale on December 14 and DAG’s 5th Annual Juried Show & Sale opening January 10.
Pat Rigdon is asking for volunteers to help staff the Federated show — she’d appreciate hearing from anyone who can offer to work a shift. (The show runs from 10 to 3.) Entry forms for the show can be downloaded here.
Jolene Northup gave an overview of the Juried show and is also looking for volunteers. Entry forms for that show will be posted soon.
Members who participated in last weekend’s Open Studio talked about their positive experiences — and sales! Congratulations everyone. There’s talk about doing another one in the spring.
Another event that caught everyone’s attention is a possible Art Festival in February during the annual Quilt Show — more info will follow on that.
Most members stayed after the meeting for lunch and to offer feedback on work presented by two of the artists, Pat Rigdon and DAG chair Sherry Fritschle.
The next meeting will be at the Country Club on Tuesday January 7 at 10 AM. Hope to see you there!
