An early heads up for our September exhibit / CROSSED LINES will be our theme. As you probably know already, the ARTPRIZE Group has decided to replace this years ARTPRIZE with the first in a series of multi-sited public art exhibitions. They call it Project 1 and this years theme is CROSSED LINES which runs from September 7 until October 27. I must confess, I've only the foggiest idea of what is meant by CROSSED LINES so I've attached a link to PROJECT 1 so you can draw your own conclusions.
Our Annual Picnic with the Photo Group will be Saturday, Aug. 17th starting at around 2:00. Burgers etc. will be around 5:00. It will again be at Mary Harbert's place on Lake Michigan in West Olive. So make your calendars. More info to come.
FRIENDS is the theme for our August exhibit. And when I say friends I don’t necessarily mean friends in the conventional sense. We usually think of friendsas a relationship between people or perhaps between a person and a beloved animal. That of course is wonderful. But feel free to interpret friends as a metaphor describing another kind of relationship all together. Consider the possibilities. All 2D and 3D art is eligible, including drawings, paintings, prints, sculpture, photography, digital works, mixed media, etc.
Stop in at Trinity United Methodist Church on Lake Drive to see the wonderful paintings of Sandi Brogger and Brooks Filonow through the month of September. Trinity is open during regular business hours, closed on Fridays.
There isn't much we can't learn these days thanks to YouTube. Here is one of many videos that shows how to take good quality images of your art. You can also get FREE photo processing programs for your PC (Picasa) or your Mac (iPhoto) to crop the image, and then save it to your hard drive! Voila!
