Notes from Wendy —-
Thanks for stopping by the VAS website! Our new board is so excited about the upcoming year. I’m Wendy Keeney-Kennicutt, the new president and webmaster and you can read my bio on our new “Our Artists” tab. This is a perk for all our members to showcase themselves and their art. All members are invited to participate!
- Our annual member show, “Aqua Vita” is currently showing at Degallery until October 3. I hope you can stop by and see it! It has 22 artists and 68 pieces – a great show!
- We are bringing back the popular “Wednesday Painters” for our members under a new name – “Art Together.” Our next get-together is Wednesday, 10/18 1-4pm. You can come and go as you please! Bring your art creating supplies, which includes cameras & computers, for an afternoon of making art and sharing ideas. I will also be there to photograph your work, if you want. For more info, click HERE
- We are sponsoring an acrylic workshop, The Textured Landscape, December 9 – 10 10am-3pm at Degallery. $175 for members and $195 for non-members – it’s a great deal. For more information and to register, click HERE. To become a member and save money in the long run, go HERE. We would love to meet you!
- We do have two more shows scheduled, one in January 2024 at The Arts Council of the Brazos Valley, and our .show in April, 2024. We now have themes! The January show is entitled “Resolutions: New Beginnings,” We encourage artists to explore the theme of new beginnings by thinking about the challenges, rewards and images of starting over, as well as the power of art to help us visualize our hopes and dreams for the future. This prompt is very open and subject to many different interpretations. The spring judged art show has the title “Art in Bloom.” I see a cacophony of color! The details aren’t finalized but the Call for Art is up or will be very soon, with the information we know so far.
- We are working with Destination Bryan and their Downtown Bryan Street & Art Fair 2024 on April 13, 2024 10am-6pm. We are organizing a Plein Air event. We ran our first “Paint Out” in April 2023 with good success, so we are excited to continue. More info will be forthcoming, but you can sign up HERE.
- Our meetings in the fall and spring will be the 2nd Monday of the month. Doors open at 5:30pm and meeting runs 6-7pm at Degallery. Member Helen Dewolf will be sharing her love of fiber art at October’s meeting on 10/9/23. Read more HERE.
- I’m in the process of updating our website, Aggieland Art Trail. So, if you have a suggestion for an art stop, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org The Aggieland Art Trail also has a public Facebook group, so stop by and join!
