Here’s what’s going on~~~~
Donna Jarve is offering a one day Workshop on Boho (Bohemian) Art and Watercolor on Saturday, July 29, 2017. Sounds so intriguing. Click here for details: Jarve – Boho WS July 17
East Bank Gallery Show in Sioux Falls, SD
The Art Reception was held Friday, July 7th. Mary Buhl attended this reception to give an update on the art and to speak to attendees. This was accomplished at 6:30 PM. Here is the report that Mary sent to the CMW Board:
“I wanted to report on the reception. First if all our show looked terrific. Ruthmary seemed very pleased with it. She took me around to every painting and wanted to know about the paintings and the artists plus a little about the various techniques. The staff raved about the show and the wonderful color and variety of paintings as did some of the visitors. I spoke to a watercolor teacher who was very interested in our organizational activities and our different types of gatherings. I also talked to a beginning artist, a woman who has retired, a young man who was so excited about the show and how to get to paint as well as those paintings in the show; another was an art promoter and more people who came to my talk. They wanted to know about our organization and how we came to be and develop – I couldn’t believe how fast the time went.
My observation is that the individual artists are hungering for education from recognized and/or nationally known artists for development and for connection and support from others. They were very surprised at how developed we are with our activities and collaboration with the Paramount. One of the ladies is going to get in touch with me and may join our group. I gave out a few pamphlets also.
I’m glad I went and was proud of our organization. Ruthmary was thrilled with our portion of the show. There were about 8-10 other artists showing and only one other speaker.”
