July Updates

Happy July Everyone!

Technically … it’s our “break” month – but we’ve got so much going on, sending out a newsletter made a lot of sense.

Our first show at the Main Line Art Center was a success! We seriously lucked out in terms of weather and heat, and not only was it a beautiful day, but the people who came all came to shop! A huge thank-you to the Main Line Art Center, and we look forward to partnering with them in the future!

The PA Guild is looking for members from the Haverford chapter who might be interested in helping to brainstorm and collaborate local chapters of the PA Guild as well as other local artist organizations such as the Main Line Art Center on a mural that celebrates Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

From what I understand, the mural will be made of tiles and then brought together. All disciplines are welcome (not just 2-Dimensional).

Erika Juran, our Executive Director is looking to organize the first Zoom planning meeting in a couple of days, so please get back to me right away if you are interested.

Please note: The Zoom meetings at this point would be for the planning phase of this project.

Please let me know if you might be interested or not, or if you would know of someone who would be interested and I will pass your name on!

Planning is in full swing for our Fall show, and we could use some help! Julie Martini has very generously stepped up as co-chair of the show and she is currently forming committees to help with paid-advertising and sponsorships. If you would like to help out, please let me or Julie know! WE ARE CELEBRATING OUR BIRTHDAY IN-PERSON THIS YEAR! That’s right, our Birthday/Annual/Anniversary picnic is going to be on Sunday, August 29th at 4PM. (Please note, that yes, the day did change – we had a schedule conflict that came up.) To sign up to bring something, please click here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d4ba4a729a2f94-hgcpotluck3.Finally, It’s nice to be back! But be aware that we still have to be cautious. If you haven’t gotten a vaccine yet, please get one. And also, everything still has that pesky *asterisk* that means that “assuming COVID hasn’t come back to bite us in the rear again”. So be safe, be smart and we’ll see you in August!
