Artists and advertisers take note: Your chance to be part of the Sangres Art Guild’s 2017 Fine Art Calendar and show is coming up.
Our 2017 theme is “Secret Places.” The calendar and show are open to original 2D, 3D and photographic works from all artists, who may submit up to three works.
Sponsors of the calendar can choose full-, half- or one-third-banner ads, which appear below each month’s calendar grid and are tax deductible. All advertising artwork and payments are due by Feb. 28. Sponsors will also receive 12 copies of the calendar for a full banner ad, six for a half banner and four for a third. They may keep or sell them at the suggested retail price of $10 each.
Intake of framed artwork is set for 10am to 2pm March 5 at the 3rd Street Gallery in Westcliffe. Participating artists can enjoy refreshments from 3pm to 4pm that day and vote for the 13 works to be in the calendar.
In the event of inclement weather, intake and voting will be March 6, or March 12 if the weather remains bad through the scheduled weekend.
An opening reception for the Calendar Show, which will hang through June 4, is set for May 7 from 4pm to 6pm at the 3rd Street Gallery.
On Tuesday, August 5 at 7pm at the 3rd Street Gallery, the mother and daughter pair of classical violinists, Heidi Itashiki and her daughter, Chloe Trevor, will present a 45-minute program to benefit the Sangres Art Guild.
The program, which they performed last year in Durango’s Purgatory resort, includes: Bach: Partita in E Major, O’Connor: Appalachia Waltz, Wieniawski: Caprice in A Minor, Kreisler: Recitativo and Scherzo, Irish fiddle tunes, and Gardel: Tango Por Una Cabeza.
Chloé was introduced to the violin at age 2 by her mother, Heidi Trevor Itashiki, Dallas Symphony violinist. She later studied with Arkady Fomin, Dallas Symphony violinist and Artistic Director of the New Conservatory of Dallas. She completed her undergraduate degree at the Cleveland Institute of Music studying with David and Linda Cerone, and her graduate degree as a scholarship student at Rice University studying with Kenneth Goldsmith. Chloé plays on a Carlos Landolfi violin made in Italy in 1771, and is on faculty at the Music in the Mountains Conservatory.
Twelve magnificent pieces of art were chosen to fill the pages of our 2013 calendar. Dozens of other great pieces will be on display. All artwork will be for sale. Hors d’ouevres and drinks will be served. Door prizes will be given. Its a great social time.
A portion of sales benefit the Sangres Art Guild and all of the great work the Guild does to bring business to the community. Join in the fun and cast your vote for the Peoples Choice awards! The Juror’s Choice and Peoples Choice will be announced at the Artists’ Reception and awarded during the reception. Please join us! The Show runs through through July 22nd.
The Sangres Art Guild will hold its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, May 15 at 5:15 p.m. at the 3rd St. Gallery, 59000, N. Hwy. 69. Paul Biron and Curt Gillespie will present the roll-out of the new web site.
