Art of the Carolinas 2009
The Carolina Mixed Media Art Guild will be out in full force at Jerry's Artarama's Art of the Carolinas (AoC). Scheduled to take place in Raleigh between Friday, November 13 and Sunday, November 15, it promises to be a fantastic event! Here's a preview:
Guild members will assist with classroom preparation, maintenance and breakdown, supporting the outstanding staff at Jerry's (including Guild members Christina and Sharon shown here)
Our members will host a "Make and Take" event, encouraging everyone attending AoC to create Artist Trading Cards (ATC) to keep or trade. Kudos and tremendous thanks go to Strathmore, Ampersand, Winsor & Newton, and Jerry's, for donating supplies for our Make and Take activities, including papers of various kinds; stampboards and clayboards; paints; pastels and glues. Some of the ATC created during AoC 2008 are shown below.
Members' work in the World of Art Challenge will be exhibited in a boardroom in the workshop area. We encourage you to visit to see where it all began, with a canvas showing all the components of the kit, then to explore the vision of 25 artists confronted with the challenge of design with those components. You'll be amazed at the innovation, diversity and creativity!
Guild members will also be demonstrating various art techniques throughout the weekend. Check the schedule when you arrive to see who will be doing which demos including painting, stamping, clay and much more.
And of course, there's the trade show area on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, where we'll shop till we drop!
So, plan to join us for all the fun, art-filled activities...it'll be a great time! For more information, visit the AoC site here. See you there!
