Dates for 2013:
This month is Business and BBQ followed by "Show and Tell" of our members. With the coming year comes the planning and nominations for 2014. Are you working on something exciting that you would like to share with the group, well we are excited too. This is the time set aside for our members to share their talents and get our artistic juices flowing. Also, this month we are supporting the MSG charity by our members bringing in any coats they would like to donate.
Valerie Stickles, glass artist, will demonstrate her unique talent at the August 26, SAA monthly meeting. Ms. Stickles, owner and sole designer for PenguinArts, started working as a custom order jewelry business for special occasions (bridal) and private sales. Today PenguinArts has evolved into a jewelry business selling in festival markets in the Southeastern U.S. Valerie makes each lampworked bead in her Cumming studio and integrates Swarovski crystals and hand-hammered sterling silver findings in her work.
Terry Henner, Consignment Expert and Artist, will speak at the July 22, SAA monthly meeting. Ms. Henner, who currently works for an art website and travels the country in search of standout artists and craftsmen, will pass along her knowledge of the options and benefits of consigning artwork with local businesses and how to create an on-line presence, not only using social media, but also selling on art websites.
Ann Young, artist, currently the artist in residence whose work you will find in Gibbs Garden.
