Meetings - June
Lisa Meissner, Mark, Bob P, Matt P, Matt B, Burdette,
Treasurer’s Report - lots of money, much is committed (Studio Tour and Plein Air registrations, etc.), may be some advertising bills coming; current amount about $1800
Artwork exhibited at Adirondack Business Center
Evening artist gatherings - anyone want to propose something? Talk about your work, demonstrate, show an art movie, host a critique? Pick a date, time, and give it a try (send info to Sandy - will send to all members and put on web site).
Farmers Market - manning the booth - could be a free community tent if shared (Yes - let’s do it); concerns about non-food items; tent will be set up; Matt B - demos are really good rather than work for sale; Studio Tour booklets, rack cards, Plein Air info; Lisa trying to organize musicians - they will perform; tent could display their CD’s.
Arts & Heritage Festival - June 26 - July 4; good promotion and advertising; Facebook ads; NC This Week, NCPR, eblast through Franklin Co. Tourism; galleries be open
Artist opportunities at the VIC - raffle tickets
Gallery Map - still would be good to have one (unable to get into Arts in the Park) - Pendragon to Bluseed; black and white; 1 side; Mark check with ADE for a newsprint (since meeting: The price for 2,500 pages of an arts map padded is $450. Allow 2 weeks from submission for turnaround time.)
Need art for the vending machine
Plein Air Festival - will need help as the time nears
Art Walks - Jill is the coordinator; encourage artists and musicians to participate
Artist at Work Studio Tour - thanks to those who helped sign up sponsors.
Autumn & Winter (holiday) events - First Night - looking for murals?, Winter Carnival - art display? Show at Bluseed for holidays (Art under $100); winter artwalk? It is NOT too early to start planning these events.
Arts Email Marketing Service - could we share one? Would have to agree that you only use your own list and not other peoples. (Guild has paid for one but will soon reach 500 email address limit and price increase).
