February Central Canada Parlour Meeting

For all who can make it to Perth, our next Parlour meeting is scheduled for Thursday, February 17.  Being ever-prepared Canadians, in case of a snowstorm, we are also scheduling a "Snow Day" for the following week, Thurs., Feb. 24, so on the 17th, if the weather looks iffy, check the blog before you leave home!  So:

  • Please email Cathy if you plan to attend, and if you need directions.
  • Bring along a potluck contribution for our lunch break, please, and mug and mug bag if you have one.
  • Our main theme is Marketing. Bring along samples of what you use to market yourself as an artist: business cards, brochures, rack cards, etc., and if you have a good inventory of these, bring about 25 or so, to distribute to the group. We will also be discussing web design, so bring along the names of your software programs and other useful tools.
  • Finally, please bring along a piece you've been working on, or finished, for our Creative Buffet.
Coffee, chitchat and Creative Buffet begin at 10 am.  The meeting begins at 10:30 and we finish by 2:00 pm to avoid rush hour issues for the folks who travel long distances.

Looking forward to our first meeting of 2011!

Would You Like to be a SAQA Rep?

I am delighted to report to our group that I have been appointed to the SAQA Board of Directors.  This is a huge honour and I will do my best to represent this amazing organization internationally, to the best of my ability.

This does, however, mean that we will need another co-rep to help keep our region growing and active.  It's a fun job, with the main responsibilities being to promote the mission and goals of SAQA, be a resource for regional members, recruit new members, and organize and attend some regional meetings. I would be happy to provide more details to anyone who is interested in the position.  Please email me and we will take it from there!

All the best for 2011!

Exhibition Catalogue from Synthesis I

For those who are interested, Karen can order copies of the book she put together when curating Synthesis I.  She writes:
It is an expensive little thing coming to about $28 with shipping. I think though that if we order 10 or more there is a bit of a discount, like 10 or 15%. I have had a couple orders already that have been placed and filled. Interested people would have to order through me since the book is on my computer, that is the only way to upload it to Apple. But again, if we can get 10 or more to order we might get a small discount.
So feel free to contact Karen if you are interested.

Wondering what pieces are depicted in it?  Check out our slide show to the right!
