Our Members Only meeting next Sunday will not be held at our usual location. Instead we will be meeting downstairs in the Griffin Room of the First Unitarian Church at 2125 Chestnut Street in Philadelphia. Look for the red balloons marking the entrance on Van Pelt Street near Chestnut to enter the Church. As always the meeting starts at 10 AM.
Our Guest Artist, Kathleen Dustin, will be giving a slide presentation on her personal journey as a polymer clay artist. One of her iconic polymer clay purses is featured below. Please plan to arrive on time as her presentation will be early in the day. Guest Artist meetings are members only, so be sure your dues are paid ($40). If not you can pay on our website or see Emily or Eileen to pay at the meeting.
Our own member experts will be rounding out the day with a Round Table Discussion on topics including making an internet presence, selling your work, and even some unusual directions your artwork can take you. (Hey, we have authors, a television star and folks who have been involved with commercial polymer clay production in our group!) Bring your own expertise (as well as business cards and a notebook to take notes!) to the discussion and we will all grow along our artistic journey together.
This is a Travel Light meeting (due to stairs and the format.) That means leave your clay gear home, but DO bring your Show and Tell that tells a story about your personal artistic journey. Early work, items from classes along the ways, inspirational pieces and even ones that didn’t seem so successful at the time are a good place to start.
This is your chance to tell us YOUR story and we can’t wait to hear it.
Edited to Add: In case you did not realize, AIDSWalk Philly is this Sunday, too. This will mean street closures, more traffic, and less available parking. Please plan accordingly.
