Artists Guild Newsletter May/June 2019

16 May 2019 9:13 PM | Julianne B. Ricksecker (Administrator)

May/June 2019 


Following is the May/June 2019 Artists Guild Newsletter.    Older issues (1971-2010) are available digitally from Jody Abssy --  jodyabssy@gmail.com

President's Message
The History Committee is working hard on the centennial book 100 Artists, 100 Years: A Century of Creativity in San Diego. We should have all the permissions in hand and copy and layouts to the printer by mid-Summer and hopefully be able to launch the book at The San Diego Museum of Art Reception in the Fall.  All Artists Guild members will be invited to the reception and donors will receive their copies of the book.  

The Artists Guild has met its goal for funding the book as mentioned in the previous newsletter.  We are, however, still accepting donations as costs have gone up and there are unforeseen expenses. 
  If you wish, you can donate on our website: www.sdmaag.org  or contact me at:  president@sdmaag.org

Our exhibitions at the Lyceum Theatre and Gallery 21 were very successful.  The Artists Guild sold over $8,000 worth of artwork and had an enthusiastic crowd of viewers at the exhibitions.

A big thank you goes to the members of the exhibition committee: John Oleinik, Angelika Villagrana, Ray Brownfield, Janet Lee and Susan Ashley for making these exhibitions possible.

We are also looking forward to the next exhibition at Mission Trails Visitor Center August-September 2019.  Details to come on that one.

We will have our annual meeting at Liberty Station on the second Saturday in June (the 8th).  We'll send members a letter with all the details.

The Artists Guild annual meeting is when we vote on the board of directors for the next fiscal year (July1, 2019 - June 30, 2020).  Now is the time to notify us of your nominations for board and committee positions.  Please plan on being at our annual meeting.  You will have fun at the party, meet other artists and hear about all the goings on at the Artists Guild.

Also, please come to our next board meeting, Tuesday, May 7, from 10:15am till noon in the museum board room.  Find out how we work together and what currently has our attention.  Add your ideas and concerns.

Please update your profile and images on the Artists Guild website.
Log on (upper right-hand corner) at the Artists Guild website www.sdmaag.org   Click on your name in the upper right hand corner.  See list and choose "edit profile."   The Avatar portion is where you insert your picture.  You will be able to create an album and upload images of your work.
