ArtWorks/BluSeed Partnership - Collaborative Effort - Approved by BluSeed Board on 12/6/16
See Report to BluSeed Board from the ArtWorks/BluSeed Task Force
ArtWorks Memberships - to become Arts Directory Fees - will start in JanuaryFee schedule the same?
Jim C: BluSeed report & recommendations - share with Artworks members. (See above Report to BluSeed Board.)
Resolutions approved: 1) lets do it; 2) establish committee; 3) establish checking account for ArtWorks; 4) BluSeed establish dba (doing business as) as SL ArtWorks
Legal fiscal responsibility rests with BluSeed Board. BluSeed plans to hire a part-time bookkeeper (which maybe we help pay for?)
ArtWorks will proceed as before - not trying to make too many changes right upfront, but they may evolve.
Hire someone to manage ArtWorks? BluSeed board will make final decision and will handle pay, etc. They will be a BluSeed employee. Volunteer efforts will still be essential.
Edward: will lawyer and accountant fees be shared by ArtWorks?
SL ArtWorks or Adk ArtWorks? For now function as SL ArtWorks
Suggestions: adjust meeting times; NorthWind would like a rep on the committee
Edward DeLeon: Explained boat launch, and mask project, could be kick-off for ArtWorks/BluSeed collaboration; participate in WC Parade. Masks for sale; artists decorate; keep for self or put into silent auction - that will raise money and those people can wear the masks. Painted boats connect to 90 Miler. More details on this later.
Studio Tour Results
Winter Exhibit - Snowshoe Races - participants? 9 artists responded - will ask again.
