Exhibits, Drawing and Little Red Journal Status Reports

WCAGA March Report on 
Exhibits, Drawing Marathon and Little Red Journal
March 31st is take down for the first exhibit of the WCAGA members for 2012. 
Correcting for Drift was held in the GA Perimeter College on the Clarkston campus in the Jim Cherry Resource Center Exhibit Gallery. As always Don Dougan did a wonderful job installing our members’ work and creating a dynamic display. 
Thirty-three of our members entered works. Ann Rowles crocheted/fabric soft sculpture, Linda McCune’s wall mounted construction, Vickie Bethel Thayer’s digital photo montage, Karen Phillip’s acrylic painting, Maxine Hess’s encaustic work and Kathy Meliopoulos’s multi media stitched work are just a few I can mention that describes the variety and depth of this exhibit. 
Our next member show will be in December 2012 at the Main Atlanta Public Library, downtown on the First Thursday Art Walk venue. 
The Drawing Marathon will be a year long project. Our first sign up will be for the month of April. I will post the project in its entirety on our website along with the dates, times and places of the host studios. If you are interested in learning more or wish to sign up, contact Barb Rehg by email at:
Our goal is to provide an experiential program designed to bring us back to the foundation of our art, Drawing. A secondary benefit, I hope to come out of this, is working alongside and with other members of our organization. Over the years since I first joined, the interactive programs that I have had a chance to participate in, have enabled me to become friends with so many of you and to learn from this wonderful group of women artists. I hope the programs we are offering this year, give you that same experience. 
The Little Red Journal came out of the Women’s Caucus for Art National Organization. 
You can read details on the website. Presently we have 22 members signed up to participate. Only 29 spots are open for this project. This journal is making the rounds through a number of the chapters. Each chapter has a month to work on it and a month for which they are creating drawings. At next year’s National Convention it will be seen and auctioned off. If you are interested contact Barb Rehg by email at:
