A Blustery Day on Aviles Street
Just a sketch and then breakfast!
A big thank you to Scott and Michael for setting up and taking down the easels and tables. The artwork looked amazing, as it always does when it’s vertical and framed! Three of our artist’s work received lots of attention and positive feedback: Craig, Rocco and Scott.
Our artwork will be on display again at the Celtic Festival on March 9th and 10th. We appreciate any help covering our 10×10 booth in shifts on Saturday and Sunday. General admission to the festival is $5 for either day.
Networking: Melissa Roby of The Red Sable stopped by with flyers to promote her upcoming show with a “Call to Artists” for the Hyppo on Charlotte Street April 5th. She has about a dozen artists participating and is still hoping for more. She also wants the Anonymous Society of Artists to know that they are invited to contact her to volunteer at her promotional display at the One Spark Event (beonespark.com) April 17th to 22nd. The event is from 9am until 9pm each of those days and she would appreciate anyone who is interested in helping out a couple of hours. Her intention is to have demonstrations by different artists and $1 raffles for art supplies. The venue is on the third floor on Bay Street, downtown Jacksonville. She will network with all artists who participate in the upcoming show at the Hyppo to also display their work at The Red Sable booth April 17-22. Look for her new advertisement in the March issue of Arbus. Or go online to theredsable.com and navigate to the contact area.
There is another opportunity for artists to submit a painting with the “City of St. Augustine Ancient City Mosaic.” For details: ancientcitymosaic.com or contact 904-825-1053. Deadline is April 15, 2013 by 4:30 p.m. Our artist’s group and The Red Sable will both be submitting 12×12 pieces to this event. It is presented by Michael’s art supply store and sponsored by the 450th Commemoration, St. Augustine Sertoma Club, St. Johns County Education Foundation, St. Johns County Public Library system, St. Augustine Art Association, and St. Johns Cultural Council.
Stay tuned, and remember “put your money where your art is.”
Kindest Regards, The Anonymous Society of Artists.
