Gerald Merfeld’s Brookwood Gallery on Main Street and Bill Gillette’s Silverlight Gallery on 2nd Street in Westcliffe, Colorado will host new shows opening on November 24 — the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Both galleries will be showing new work with the opening receptions from 4pm to 7pm on the 24th. Libations and hors d’oeuvres await you. See you there on the 24th — the Saturday following Thanksgiving.
This month’s SAG membership meeting is on Thursday, November 15 at 5:15 pm at the Cliff Lanes community room.
The meeting will start promptly at 5:15 pm with a demo by Mary Morrison of Golden Artist Colors. She’ll be coming from Denver to inform us about Golden’s line of acrylic artist’s paints and mediums, especially the Golden Open line.
Golden Open is a slow drying acrylic paint that mimics oil paint for artists wanting more time to smoosh around their colors. Mary will also have free samples.
The business side of the meeting will follow Mary’s presentation. Please plan on coming to this meeting to support the Guild and help justify Mary’s trip here and back to Denver. I’ve seen her demo – she’s good.
Next month, the scheduled December 20th meeting will be canceled in lieu of having a Christmas party at the gallery during the Holiday Show reception December 1, 4-7. Come to the reception December 1st and cast your vote to replace two “retiring” SAG Board of Directors this year. We need your vote!
