If you didn’t come today, we missed you– but today’s lunch session was great! We had a big turnout, discussed a lot of Arts Council related things (Annette Tomek is going to help us out with some publicity for future events! Shryl Miles is donating a large, professional grade mat cutter to the Council!! Maria Speiss –she’s helping Chris with the SPRARTS web site–was there and we talked to everyone about getting their personal page up—or updated—on the web site; etc.); and most people did bring something to share or ask for help with (Gail Klein brought in some beautiful wood carvings that we will be putting on display in the Benson City Grill when we change artists in September. Bill Smith brought the maquette for a mountain lion sculpture he is getting ready to cast. Jim Kidd showed a really neat photo he took while driving 70 mph through a tunnel while holding his camera out the window of his car!! Plus there were lots of paintings for show and tell or critique.) What a talented, creative group of people!!
Everyone seemed to enjoy the “open forum” format, so I think we’ll try to schedule one every six months or so.
