We are looking forward to another great year, filled with opportunities to exhibit our art, to learn from our fellow artists and to support each other on our creative journeys. I am honored to serve as your new President for 2020 and will do my best to ensure the continued success of CAS.
We are fortunate to have a wonderful group of volunteers who serve on the board, coordinate our exhibits and help to hang art. I am grateful for their efforts and support. Please help our coordinators by carefully reading the call for art, checking your calendar before submitting to make sure you can drop-off and pick-up your art on time and complying with the hanging guidelines. Please let us know if you are interested in helping out. New volunteers and new ideas will help CAS thrive and improve.
Please come to our next General meeting on February 5th at 7 pm. Networking begins at 6:30 pm. If you would like to meet others to trade help with drop-offs and pick-ups, this would be an ideal opportunity. Our presentation will be on “Exhibiting Your Art”. We will explain the different types of CAS exhibits, our Calls for Art, hanging guidelines, pricing, framing, creating an online presence and will hold a Q&A session with a panel of experienced professional artists. We hope that sharing lessons learned will improve everyone’s exhibit experience. The meeting location will be announced shortly.
I value your participation in our CAS community and look forward to the year ahead!
