At the July 11th meeting, CLA members brought unfinished artwork for artist Sheila Parsons (l) to critique. She offered many fine suggestions to improve the many “in progress” works that members brought to the meeting.
Thank you, Sheila!
Sue Duvall Show at Surgery Center
You’ve just GOT to go by the Surgery Center (make a special trip) to see Sue DuVall’s exhibit that will be hanging until the first week in August. Absolutely lovely pieces! She is showing the original artwork that she did for the ABUN group on Facebook (Artists and Biologists Unite for Nature). Click here to see pictures from Virginia Potter Vredeveld’s Facebook post on the CLA Group page.
Black Earth Art Studio – Have You Ever Poured a Painting?
Randy Rollheiser, owner of Black Earth Art Studio at 1025 Front Street in Conway (across from Kings), is offering a great deal on creating an original poured painting! Tuesdays are his “official” poured painting day. Here’s the scoop straight from his Facebook page …
Stop in anytime, any Tuesday from 12 – 8 and do pour. That’s right . No class times to schedule around. No reservations needed… just come on in! It takes 5-10 minutes to learn the basics… take as much time as you need and stay as long as you want. It’s a great inexpensive creative venture you can do alone or with friends and is available when you are!
These take a few days to dry so you will need to return at some point to pick it up.
Local delivery ( by me) or shipping available for an additional fee.
Different sized canvases available
Fee per person:
$35 for one 11” x 14” canvas
$15 each additional canvas
$50 for one 16” x 20” canvas
$20 each additional canvas
Framing options are also available. Visit his Facebook page for more information.
Just a Friendly Reminder – Art of the Month Guidelines
Conway League of Artists places artworks in several businesses and public places around town in an effort to make art a part of our community and to make CLA more visible to the public. Members in good standing are encouraged to bring a piece of their art to the meetings to be voted on by those in attendance. The artwork receiving the most votes will be featured in the next newsletter and on the CLA website that month. If not enough pieces are available to fill easels, all will be used and some may be displayed from the previous month’s artwork. Artwork will be delivered to the easels then picked up and returned to the artist at the next meeting by a CLA officer.
Currently we have 6 places for 2D art and none for any 3D pieces. Easels are at Conway Chamber of Commerce, First Security Banks on Front Street and the main bank on the Old Morrilton Highway, Arvest Bank on Oak Street, and the Faulkner County Library A & B. The artwork to be displayed in each location is chosen by the easel used there, according to what size will safely fit the artwork, for instance, very small pieces will likely be placed at First Security Bank downtown or at the library while larger pieces more likely will be placed at Conway Chamber of Commerce, Arvest Bank or the library. Exhibitors are responsible for any sales. Art must be family friendly and will not be voted upon if it isn’t.
Sizes are limited to no larger than 22×28 or half sheet watercolor. All work must be framed unless gallery wrapped canvas is used and all work must be properly wired with screw eyes or D rings for hanging. Artwork must have ID cards attached to the back and the front of the work listing: Title, medium used or Photograph, Name of Artist, Price or NFS, and Contact information. No unusually heavy or elaborate frames accepted because our easels are light weight. No artwork will be placed on the floors of these businesses nor can artists provide their own easel.
Neither the Conway League of Artists, the business displaying the artwork nor anyone else is responsible for loss or damage. A photograph will be taken of artwork being displayed to be used on social media or other publicity events. By participating in the Art of the Month placement program you agree to these guidelines.
