March Theme : : Community + Art Exchange

  • Mar 30, 2014 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

We are a community of artists, and how lucky we are!

The image above is of Chris Haberman and his mural "Faces of Hawthorne" that was done back in 2012. Have you seen it? Chris runs the People's Art Gallery downtown and has been a promoter of the Portland artist community for years through projects like this mural and others he's done in collaboration with other artists, the city and businesses. What does community mean to you? Create a new piece to express this, or bring an existing piece that fits the theme, or just bring a piece you want to share with your community of artists! We just want you there!

We will also be doing the  6 x 6 Art Exchange at this meeting. If you were at the January Celebration meetup and took one of the 6 x 6 canvases, please bring it to the meetup wrapped for a blind exchange. Each participating artist will draw a number and select a piece in turn. We will do this toward the end of the meeting. If you want to participate but won't make it to the meeting, please email me so we can make arrangements to get your piece to me before March 30th. I will draw a number and select a piece for you. 

If you have any questions please let me know! Looking forward to another great meeting with my community! :)

    I was accepted at the last minute - on the wait list. As I assumed I wouldn't be able to attend, I hadn't worked on the community based painting -- so I opted out! Maybe would work out next time ---- have a great meeting. Debra

      Debra -- with this group, you don't have to worry if you haven't followed the theme -- for many of us, following the theme is hit-or-miss. Please bring what you are working on in future, regardless. We would love to see it!

    What a great bunch of people with a lot of talent. It was especially fun to have an exchange of art, I just got done hanging mine in my kitchen!

    What a treat to receive a fellow artist's work in addition to being a part of the community sharing and learning!

    As always, great to see what everyone's been working on. The art exchange was a fun addition. Thanks Jenn!

    Jenn, I just declined. Health is sucking :D

    I sent you a private email. It has a way to exchange my painting still. Please read.

    Hello All!
    I'm excited to see everyone and their art, and the 6 x 6 exchange will be a blast. Please remember to sign your exchange piece so people will know who's work they received. Also, please wrap your piece... this is a blind exchange. If you have an image of your exchange piece, please email it to me at [masked]. I will post them after the meeting.
    We have some people on the wait list for this meeting. Please update your attendance if you decide you can't come. There is another group meeting at 1pm, so please keep your share time brief. We have a full meeting based on the rsvps, so we may not have time to do the exchange in the meeting room. There is space out front that is covered, so we may need to do it there. We will see how things go.
    Hollywood Library is booked up the end of April, so I need some help finding a venue for the April meeting. Please email me if you have any leads or suggestions.
    Thanks! See you tomorrow!

    Please be sure to sign your 6 x 6 exchange piece so the recipient knows whose work it is. Also, I'm sure everyone will want to see the exchange pieces, so we can bring them to the April meeting to share with the group. In the meantime, if you have an image of your finished 6x6 piece, please email it to me and I will post it. If you're still working on it, send a pic when it is complete. Thanks!

    • Carol Ann M.

      I promise I will send you a picture of it once I get a good one.

      March 28, 2014

  • Carol Ann M.

    See you guys Sunday!

  • Suzanne E.

    Sounds good.

  • Meran Ni C.

    I have a question: if we're trading these out at the end of the meeting, what will we be doing for the rest of the meeting?

    March 6, 2014

    • Jenn

      The theme for the meetup is Community, and is optional, as always. The 6 x 6 can be community themed as well if you like, but can be whatever you like. I apologize if the description about this meetup is unclear. Hopefully this clears things up :)

      1 · March 12, 2014

    • Carol Ann M.

      Thanks for the clarification, Jenn. I will have something besides the 6x6 to bring, so it will all work out. Thanks for everything you do!

      March 14, 2014

  • Cindy S.

    Jenn, count me in on the exchange. I will pick up a 6x6 from you at your convience now that I am back in town! HUGS to all.

    1 · March 5, 2014

    • Jenn

      Yay! Are you coming by Bite tomorrow night? I'll have the 6 x 6 with me. If not maybe we can meet up over the weekend :)

      March 6, 2014

    • Carol Ann M.

      Cindy! So glad you are back safe and sound. Will look forward to seeing you.

      March 11, 2014

  • Meran Ni C.

    I'm posting just to pull attention to the fact that WE'RE MEETING EARLIER than usual, folks! ;)

    Still working on my 6x6, but it should be done and dry for the exchange.

    March 4, 2014

  • Pauline

    Sounds fun, Jenn! To clarify, for the March meetup, we each bring an art piece that fits the theme of a community of artists (and the 6 x 6 canvas for those of us who got one), right?

    1 · March 2, 2014

    • Jenn

      Yes.. it will be a regular meeting on the Community theme... it can be any kind of community, not limited to artists. The 6 x 6 pieces will be a blind exchange so please wrap your piece.
