Let’s Talk Art -June 2019
The Let’s Talk Art meeting is Thursday June 6, 2019 from 10:00am to 12:00pm at the Mohave County Library – 1100 Hancock Rd, Bullhead City and is open to the public.
This month we will VOTE for our Board of Directors! Ballots will be available, but please feel free to bring your ballot to the meeting and drop it into the ballot box. They will be read no later than 11:00 am.
Our Guest Artist, Maddy Barkley, will display and demonstrate the art of jewelry making. She will show us how to make different types of earrings and everyone will have an opportunity to create a set for themselves! Although Maddy’s primary medium was jewelry making, she has since broadened her scope to include two-dimensional art, principally acrylic painting. Most of her work is landscape, but she will occasionally paint wildlife. Maddy is largely a self-taught artist!
June’s Raffle will most definitely be just as impressive as last month’s. With interesting, informative, and useful art supplies, there is sure to be something you will want! Jack will also be donating his latest creation, a mahogany “A Box”. Earnings from our raffles help support the Guild’s mission, so please bring cash!
Don’t forget your newest piece for Show and Tell!
Can’t wait to seeing you there…
May’s Let’s Talk Art meeting was an amazing amount of fun!!
Thank you, Sam Schintzler, for a delightful presentation. Sam showed off some of her incredible quilled art pieces and the typical and atypical tools she uses. She passed around her hand made cards and talked about how she cut certain pieces to create a one of a kind look. Everyone had an opportunity to practice shaping the paper used to fashion quilled art.
Although only a couple of new works were shared–Georgia Ryan showed off her glass feather and Joan Damron her purple acrylic greeting card, everyone had an opportunity to see the newly painted 12 x 12 canvases for May’s Flora and Fauna fundraiser. They will be hanging at the Bistro from May 11th through June 10th. Check them out if you can, or tell your friends!
The raffle prizes were incredible. Jack’s prized bowl was a winner and garnered a substantial number of tickets! And the winner was, Carla Curtis!! The other prizes were in demand as well. Almost everyone took home something.
June’s guest artist will be Maddy Barkley…it is jewelry making time!! And, the raffle items offered will not disappoint. June is also the month we vote for RVAG’s new board of Directors.
See you then…
