Woodland Camera Forum members are blessed with the opportunity to have an Art Wall at Common Grounds Coffee Shop. And, to make that happen, our club has just purchased some really nice frames.
We invite you to take advantage of this opportunity with your work. Each show will run for one month and change out on or about the first of each month, so that people who are enjoying the First Friday can take advantage of your show as well. As this is your show, you can choose any prints that you would like to show.
Contact Susan Bovey with the month that you would like to have your prints up for your very own art show.
The outside of the frames measure 16 x 20 inches. There is a double mat included (white over black), or you can use your own mat. The inside dimension of the mat is 11 x 14 inches. So, all you need to do is supply three photographs measuring 11 x 14 inches with a ¼ inch white border. You will also need to supply a small artist statement (about you) and your photography.
The use of these frames does come with a charge of $1 per frame per month. This comes up to $3, payable to Sarah Gould, Treasurer. This is to pay for the frames by the people who are using them. If you are using your own frames, there is no charge.
Now, after all the members have had their chance to show for one month, we can do it all over again. And, if you are not calling to schedule your month, I will call you and give you a month.
This is your chance to shine. Even if you are shy about it, ask someone in the club and there are plenty of people who can help you get over your obstacles. Shy? You do not have to be present – just present your photos. Inexperienced? Well, this is your way to get some experience. Feeling like your work is not good enough? Ask someone to help you evaluate a selection of photos and help you with any improvements you think you would like.
You can contact Susan Bovey at (530) 219-0955 or Betti Clark (916) 541-3980 for more information.
Our next show change will be May 1, 2013 for the May 3rd First Friday Walk. Are you ready? Now, let's get out there and do this thing!
There are still time to participate in the YoloArts Art and Ag Project. This is where you can go onto different farms and take photographs or paint with the permission and encouragement of the area farmers.
Each October YoloArts has an auction and they hope that you will submit your art work to help raise money for this organization. You can take your percentage or you can gift back to YoloArts the full price of the art piece.
To join the Art & Ag mailing list or participate in the next Farm Visit, you must email them your request. That address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. That email will go to Janice Purnell.
The dates for the remainder of 2013 are:
SPRING: Thursday, May 16; Saturday, May 18;
SUMMER: Thursday, June 27; Saturday, June 29; Thursday, July 11; Saturday, July 13; Thursday, August 15, Saturday, August 17; Thursday, September 19; Saturday, September 21;
