We can all congratulate ourselves on a fantastic job at the Spring Exhibit of the Nature Artists’ Guild. The weather was mixed, but we still had about 1000 people come through and enjoy the results of all our efforts. Every comment overhead was completely complimentary, and usually included one or more of the following – “ooh”, “how do they do that?” “wow!” There was much leaning way, way over to get a closer look – perhaps next time we should hand out magnifying glasses at the doorway! Congratulations to everyone who arranged, helped with and participated in the exhibit.
Whew! It’s a good thing that we have about a month off with no activities scheduled so that we can all take a rest. But wait a minute, not so quick –
Our Special Exhibits Chairperson Paulette McDermott has been busy, and announces that
We have a wonderful opportunity to show our work at the Burning Bush Gallery in Wheaton. The Burning Bush Gallery is loosely associated with the Gary United Methodist Church, 224 North Main Street in Wheaton.
The exhibit will be titled “Beauty of the Earth”, will run from May 15 to June 12, and can be enjoyed on Sundays from 10 am to 12:30 pm and Wednesdays from 5:30 pm to 7 pm, or by special arrangement. The exhibit space is limited so we are requesting that members submit one piece that has been juried for the Nature Artist’s Guild exhibits over the past five years. Sculpture and fabric pieces are welcome.
There will be an Artist Reception on Sunday, May 22, from 1 – 3 pm.
Many thanks to Sally Hill for getting the Reverend Asta into contact with the Nature Artists’ Guild.
Please check your e-mail for all the details as well as the required entry form, which should be returned to Reverend Asta by April 27. If you have questions, please contact Paulette McDermott (her contact information is listed in your yearbook). Click here for an article about the Burning Bush Gallery.
