WCAGA Board Report
August 11, 2014
Sally Wansboro Eppstein was elected by the board to be vice president. This fills an important board position that has been vacant since January. Kate Colpitts, former vice president, became president in January when then-president Judy Parady left the position before the end of her term due to family issues.
We also now have a new co-treasurer. In the spring, Donna Horn agreed to share treasury duties with Ann Rowles. This was approved by the board.
The WCAGA Members’ Show, “Layers”, opens at Georgia Perimeter College on September 11. There will be a catered reception.
On August 2, a WCAGA pin-up exhibition of work from various drawing marathons at UpStairs [ArtSpace] in Tryon, NC opened. Barb Rehg also has a solo show at the same gallery and attended the opening which she said was very well received. Our drawing marathons have inspired the artists in the Tryon area, spearheaded by WCAGA member Linda Hutchins, to hold a drawing marathon in Tryon.
Draw 4 Days
Our most ambitious drawing marathon will happen August 18–23. Over 14 WCAGA member artists have signed up for space to draw for 4 consecutive days at the Further Polycontemporary Gallery at TULA Art Center on Bennett Street. Some artists have arranged to share their space with another artist or a small group. If you have not previously signed up for a space, please drop by and see what’s happening. There will be a small space for drop-ins to work as well as a chalkboard area for one-day drawings! Feel free to Instagram it, blog about it, post a note on Twitter, and comment on WCAGA’s FaceBook page.
Please come to the opening reception and see the results of a week of drawing in public. The opening will be 6:00–9:00 pm on Friday, August 22.
There will be a discussion with the participating artists on Saturday, August 23 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.
