Meeting Notes from Wednesday, September 16th

Attendence: 24

Megan Mirro, from the Ft. Wayne Museum of Art gave a presentation on Joseph Cornell(1903-1972); primarily a collage and box construction artist, displaying memorabilia and found objects.
Well done, Megan.

Numerous of our group of artists showed their works for this month's topic: "Moon". We're pleased that so many of you participated.
The next project theme is "Sunrise" and will be due on November 18th.

We discussed and decided to participate in the Oktoberfest, October 3rd, from 12-7 p.m. It's sponsored by the Miami County Chamber of Commerce and will take place on the Peru Riverwalk.
Two of our members, Dan Harshman and Rudy Ridenour, have their own tents and are willing to share them with other members.
Thank you guys.
The Chamber of Commerce is also loaning us two more tents for the event so we will have a total of 4 tents of artwork displayed.
I will have more info on this in the upcoming days.

Our exhibit for Art in the Courtyard at the Cafe Du Cirque has been postponed.

Our opportunity to exhibit in the National City Bank was agreed upon and will take place after out October 21st meeting.

A report on Co-Op Art Sales and an update on our 4x4 Community Service Project was given by Bonnie Arrick due to Susan being under the weather.
Less than 30 little canvasses remain to be turned into art. Thank you all so much and thank you Bonnie.

Anne Huskey Lockard received an Honorable Mention for her piece called "Liberty Prevails" in the "Americana" show in the Clark Gallery at the Honeywell Center in Wabash.
Brenda Ramseier also had a piece accepted into the show.
Way to go, ladies.

Brenda also reminded us of the display of tapestries at her school where she is the art teacher; Maconaquah Elementary School. The next featured artist will be Thomas Hart Benton from October 19th to the 24th.
She invited the public to sign in at the desk and visit them there.

Thank you all for being a part of Community Artists Co-Op.
