I've opened up the Message Board for the Meetup Group. So those of you looking for a place to start a conversation that everyone else might be miffed at being conducted via the Meetup's e-mail now have that place.
Just click the "Message Board" link to get to it, and go from there.
This is a chance for artists of all sorts in the West Suburbs of Chicago -- whether your medium is expressed visually, verbally, sonically, or some combination -- to cross-pollinate, gather ideas and energy, and find inspiration, consolation and encouragement. The hope is to gather regularly as a group, creating opportunities to organize smaller klatches, as well as opportunities to find like spirit and lasting artistic relationships. We may even be able to organize readings, performances and showings.
Note the change: We were the Oak Park Writers, Artists & Musicians group -- We are now the West Suburban Writers, Artists & Musicians group.
