Reflecting on our Future and Past

We met today - August 4 - to paint, sew, sketch....and to plan for a future show.   9 people came today and we will have others rejoin us once school starts and their kiddos are back in class

We will have an exhibit at the Yellow Springs Arts Council in July 2015.  The gallery is situated on Corry St, beside 'Would You, Could You' and is open W-Sun 1-4pm.

We've decided on the title "Reflections" at the suggestion of Mary C.  "Reflections" can be interpreted literally - an artist's representation of water reflections - or it can be widened.  Our show will reflect 'our individuality through our art.'  Our group works in a wide variety of mediums and we inspire each other to stretch our wings, to teach and help others express themselves artistically.  Many of us will teach mini workshops during the

We also discussed our beginnings...we first started meeting in each others homes or at local places to paint/create.  Sue R. introduced the concept of 'A Drawing a Day' to help us incorporate art more fully into our lives.  This led us to each put more thought, effort and creativity into our art.  Many of us began for the first time, to consider ourselves to be artists.  We collectively think this was 2008 or so.  We've continued to meet, to do group art shows, to help others learn to keep art in their lives.  We now meet at the First Presbyterian Church on Xenia Ave. in Yellow Springs - generally the first Monday (except holidays - 2nd Monday) from 9:30 - Noon.   Come on down with your art materials and creative spirit!.
