If you've ever wondered about and been perplexed by the business side of selling your art, you don't want to miss this seminar. This yearly event, organized by Crealde's Director of Painting and Drawing, Henry Sinn, is a great opportunity to learn the secrets of successful art marketing from long-time professional artists in the community. They're donating their time for this event so that all funds collected will go to benefit Crealde's Painting and Drawing Department. To top it off, a free lunch is included! Further info is here.
- Please bring a nice nibble for sharing and any summer creations--paintings, drawings, photography, sculptures-- you're especially proud of (along with an easel if necessary.)
- Those artists who wish to participate should bring a small ACEO (artist's trading card) artwork for exchanging. This was very popular the last few meetings and we'd like to continue the practice.
- Jerry Bell will have raffle tickets for a trip for two to Switzerland to benefit Crealde's biggest fundraiser of the year. Tickets are normally $20/ea. or a block of eight for $100. They are available for the ALOC group at the block rate of $12.50/ea. If you'd like to take a chance, as well as support a worthy cause, please make checks payable to "Crealde."
- Donations of art supplies/equipment for the children's art class at Crealde are needed on an ongoing basis and are greatly appreciated. Please bring donations to the meeting or contact Gayle Bell, 407-672-1001. Thanks!
