|A Very Exciting Opportunity for our members! |
During our 50th festival, on Saturday, July 7th from 4-9pm we are going to have a new event located at The Community Center and possibly with the use of the new bandstand on the beach. We will be having live bands and individual musicians playing to commemorate the WAA's 50th Festival Anniversary. If you are a painter or even another type of artist who would like to paint/ perform live with the music as your inspriration please contact me. Also we most likely will have poetry readings as well... I will be coming up with a schedule soon and as soon as I have the muscians lined up the artsits can find the spots on the schedule which resonate with them.
If you would like to help coordinate this event please email me email@example.com or call the gallery@ 294-6840.

** Note to our members.... The poets in this organization are looking to collaborate with our artists on thier projects. The poets need art work to go on the cover of their origami poetry books and would love to meet at the gallery on an on-going schedule, perhaps Sunday eentings. The poets would bring in thieir poems, the artist would pick the poems that they would like to do the artwork/ photography for and eventually we can have a show here at the gallery with both the original art of the artists and the poetry, perhaps in 2013.
If you are interested in this project please contact me at the gallery.
