Dear WAS-H Friends,
We have a lot of “hot” plans for July at WAS-H! And by hot, I mean exciting, not hot weather like the we have experienced the past few weeks.
First up is our July Student/Teacher Show. Registration for entry and painting drop off deadline is Wednesday, July 6th. Follow this link to the prospectus. This is a great chance to enter those paintings you did in a class. Plus, teachers are invited to display their work. The July 1st Friday Open Studio will have information on how to cut mats and frame your work. Drop in to learn more so you can enter the show.
The July Gallery Show Awards reception will be on Sunday, July 10th at 3pm. Join us to enjoy the Student and Teacher Show, we are really excited about it, and expect a full and lively exhibit!
A few more hot events:
- The Ryan Fox major workshop opens for early-bird registration on July 3rd
- Model Lab is adding some more evenings in July
- There are a few open spots left in classes scheduled for July
Look for upcoming show prospectuses, the August Gallery Show theme will be “Skies”, and the September Gallery Show theme will be “Blue.” Our Gallery Directors, Cissy Geigerman and Katie Steck, are finalizing details for both shows and want you to know now what is upcoming.
We had a fun New Member Orientation this week. This will be a regular event, so if you are new (or new-ish) to WAS-H, look for information to sign up. It is a great way to learn more about WAS-H, how to enter shows, and meet others new to our organization. After all, art friends are the best friends!
We have lots of fun plans for the Fall in the works, including a full class schedule, the Art Fair, and the Annual Members Exhibit. WAS-H is a vibrant community, thank you for being part if it!
If you haven’t already done so, please renew your membership today so you can take part in our Summer and Fall events. You can go to the website at THIS LINK to renew.
Personally, we are just back from a family vacation to the Big Apple. It was fun to enjoy the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and to watch our Astros play both the Mets and Yankees. Best of all, it was great to experience the energy of a city so well known for its arts.
I hope you have fun plans for the summer, and that WAS-H can be part of it. Wish you a Happy Fourth of July!
