    President's Message

    Dear Members:
     
    We held our Annual Membership Meeting via Zoom on June 11.  Many thanks to all of you who took time to join us and vote for the board of directors candidates for our upcoming fiscal year (July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023) and the revisions to our bylaws.  
     
    There were a few changes to the make-up of our board.  After four years of serving as President of the Guild, Sue Zinngrabe Gold stepped down from this role.  Since nobody volunteered to assume the President position, I agreed to serve one more time as Guild President for one year. (I served as President from 2012 to 2018).  
     
    I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Sue for her years of dedication and her enormous work on behalf of the Guild, especially during these challenging COVID years.  Thanks for doing such a fantastic job, Sue!.  I am very happy to report that we will not lose her.  Sue has agreed to remain on our board of directors, assume the role of Guild Treasurer, continue as Exhibitions Committee co-chair, Centennial Book administrator, serve on the Website Committee and compile the Guild Newsletter.  All in all, she does not get much of a break, but we are very glad that she will continue to work with us on our Guild agenda.
     
    After many years as Treasurer and Webmaster, Julianne Ricksecker has stepped down from these positions, but she will remain on the board as Member-at-Large and will still assist us with technical advice.  We also owe her many thanks for all her work.  Katerina Husar Lazarova is our new Webmaster.

    President's Message

    Dear Members,

    This letter will be my last as president of the San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild.    These four years have been fulfilling and demanding.  I have enjoyed being your president and feel we have accomplished much.  Our relationship with the Museum has improved.  We have just presented to The Museum a 3-ring binder that contains the work and bios of most of our artist members.  The Museum had expressed a desire to know more about the Artists Guild and its artist members.  The centennial book, 100 Artists, 100 Years: A Century of Creativity in San Diego, will be published this year.  There have been many delays in publishing this book, not the least of which has been getting permission from the artist, family, or heirs to use an image of the artist's work.   All of our exhibitions have been successful.   All in all, it has been a good and productive four years.  My plan is to continue on the Artists Guild board of directors as the treasurer and immediate past president.  So, I'll still be around!

    Dear Members,

    The Artists Guild is hosting a "LIVE" members-only show (Transitionswith a live reception at The Center for the Performing Arts at 15498 Espola Road, Poway, CA 92064, on  Sunday, November 7, 2021, from 2 to 4 pm.  PLEASE COME TO THE RECEPTION.  We will also show this exhibition online on our website until the end of December.  
    https://www.sdmaag.org/Transitions


    There is an opportunity for a teaching artist familiar with traditional photographic techniques to perform a one-time in-gallery tutorial for the upcoming Masters of Photography show (opening Nov. 20th). The Museum would like this person to demonstrate a photographic technique related to the exhibition live in front of an audience. This technique would have to be dry, with no liquids or inks. There could even be an art-making activity for guests as well.  The Museum wants to film the experience so they could publish it on various social media platforms and websites. This would be a wonderful way for The Museum to discover what Artist Guild members are capable of.   Is there an Artists Guild member or associate who would like to take this opportunity?  If so, please call me at 858-717-5414.

    There will be an Artists Guild online international exhibition coming up in March and April 2022.  The prospectus for this "open" exhibition will be on our website very soon.  Look for it, and please enter.

    The San Diego Museum of Art will show a few members' works in the Museum sometime in 2024 in the admission-free gallery next to Panama 66.  The works shown will be of the Museum's choosing.

      https://www.lajollaartassociation.org/jeffrey-r-brosbe-1

      About Jeffrey:

      Other than his passion for photography Jeffrey was an avid student of archeology and history (UCLA) and was a literature instructor at San Dieguito High School in Encinitas where he taught for 33 years starting at the young age of 23.  

      For years he actively served on the board of the La Jolla Art Association, the Allied Artists Association of San Diego, and the Off Track Gallery.  His archival photographic prints have been selected in international juried exhibitions; national juried exhibitions in museums, colleges, and universities; and juried exhibitions throughout San Diego County, winning special recognition and awards in almost all of them.

      In 1997 he was chosen by the City of Carlsbad Arts Commission as one of the first to do a major installation.  His most recent honors include being selected by Black and White magazine for the 2017 Single Image Awards issue and given the special recognition award by the Photo Arts Group for work submitted to the International Exhibition of Photography in Del Mar (California) in 2016.

      He says:  “Visually, my work is built around shape, light, and shadow.  The essence of my images however are moments in time which, in their contemplation, communicate my personal response to the world which is sometimes a wry, ironic smile; at others awestruck; and sometimes in a realm between these poles. The creation of an image is the same as the creation of a Haiku:  It should be whole and meaningful in itself while providing greater insight when pondered further.”  See more at  jeffreyrbrosbe.com

    Dear Members,

    Happy New Year to you.  We all certainly hope that 2021 is a much better year!

    This time we live in is unprecedented.  We have been living with this pandemic for about ten months now and, for sure, we are getting tired of staying home, wearing a mask and social distancing when we go out.  A couple of vaccines have been approved, but it will be a while before everyone is vaccinated.  We have all learned how to order things and have them delivered.  We are having Zoom meetings and learning new ways to live with technology.  Some of this will stay with us even after the pandemic is over.  We are learning new ways to cope.  Right now, all we can do is hang in there, and do our best to stay busy at home and be very careful when going out.
