Open Studio at Carol Till’s was instructive and fun. Your Editor learned all about mistakes and ways to do it wrong(ly). Sorry you weren’t there with these ladies:
Next Open Studio will convene at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science for some display sketching. Contact Vanessa Martin for details and to participate. Bring a stool, a drawing board… and, of course, your own personally preferred media and substrates.
ArtCozy assemblers needed. Volunteer to help Judy Vanderbosch finish the RMSBA Art Cozies and you will be rewarded [we are not one bit above bribery around here] with a FREE Art Cozie!
Thursday February 1st from 9:30 am to 3 pm. Lunch and snacks provided. You do not need to have any sewing experience to volunteer!
We need about 6 people to do:
- Stamping, cutting out and ironing RMSBA labels.
- Cutting, plastic pockets (need to know how to use a rotary cutter)
- Cutting fleece for bags with a rotary cutter.
- Sewing on labels and plastic pocket.
I have 2 machines that should be enough for this session but if you have one you would like to bring that is good. Also rotary cutters would be good to bring. I have the needed supplies for the rest. Any questions just call.
Please RSVP to Judy at email@example.com 303-375-7718

RMSBA Executive Board meeting on January 14 was attended by these officers and members:
Eileen Richardson – President (new!)
Vanessa Martin – Interim Treasurer (new!)
Irma Sturgill - Exhibits co-chair
Shiere Melin - Exhibits co-chair
Kristi Czajkowski – Secretary
Martha Narey – Communications editor
Dorothy DePaulo – Logistics chair
Sharon Garret – RARE exhibit chair
Susan Fisher – Director emerita
Carol Till - member
Judy Vanderbosch – member
The Board extends great thanks to Ronda Ballard for her service as Treasurer, 2015-2017.
Inasmuch as a few unclaimed originals are still in exhibit chairs hands following the RARE shows (yes, even from RARE I), and a number of prints and other materials, the Boards announces the establishment of a left-work maximum period of 30 days following the closing of an RMSBA show, juried or nonjuried. Participants must retrieve, or make alternative arrangements with the Exhibit Chair(s), all originals and unsold accompanying materials by 30 days after the closing. Any unclaimed artworks will be offered for sale by RMSBA, and the proceeds shall accrue to the RMSBA treasury. This proposed By-law change will avoid burdening any member serving as exhibit chair.
