Art Council happenings

We had seven members at the meeting on July 14.
Susan Eaton is working on the grant for the Woods and Strings performances.

John Miano had some rough drafts for our logo. We need a logo for the Art Council. It will be used for anything to do with the council. If you would like to work something up, that would be great. Bring it to the next meeting and we will look at all of them and pick one to use for the council. Use your imagination and create something that will represent our artists.

We will have a table at the Bi Centennial celebration on October 17. If you would like to bring a couple of pieces to display that would be wonderful. Some of you don't want to set up and sell. That is fine. We need the artists of the county represented that day. Please let me know if you want to participate in the display. We need volunteers to sit at the table for 2 hour intervals. Please put your name on this list.

If you want to set up and sell, you need to fill out a form, pay a $20 booth fee and get it turned in by Sept.1. Forms are at the Chamber of Commerce office or I can email it to you. Turn them in at the Chamber office or to me at the next meeting.
