Guild Activity Updates

As the "lazy" days of summer wind down, our Guild activity ramps up.  Here's what we've got going on in the next couple of weeks:

Ongoing is our Orange:  An International Mail Art Challenge continues to receive submissions.  We have postcards from our members, as well as from artists in Austria and Spain.  To see the full collection, visit the blog.  We hope you'll be inspired to join in the fun, create one, and send it in!

Our annual Round Robin Play Day at DiGiulio Studios will be held on Sunday, September 13th, from noon to 5pm.  Sign up to bring a sip or nibble on the Yahoo Group, and join us as we explore a variety of technique demos presented by our talented members. 

CMMAG will again host a Mail Art event as part of Raleigh's annual SPARKcon celebration.  Join us on Saturday, September 19th on the mezzanine level of the Busy Bee CafĂ©, 225 S. Wilmington Street, downtown Raleigh, between 5:00 and 9:00 pm as we create postcards for the International Mail Art Challenge, or to send to loved ones.  All supplies will be provided, and it promises to be a great time!  Oh, and did we mention the tater tot appetizers and beer at the Busy Bee...yummy and 'licious?

The opening of our "Falling for Mixed Media" display at the Page Walker Art & History Center in Cary is Friday, September 25th, from 6 to 8pm.  Several members will have their work on display in the building's front showcase.  Our show will run until November 16th, and many of the pieces will be for sale. 

And as if that's just not enough fun, we'll be preparing for our next foray into the world of Jerry's Artarama's Art of the Carolinas (November 12--15), gathering and assembling gift baskets for InterAct, and planning our annual holiday celebration meeting (December 10th). 

We'd love to have you with us for any or all of our events. 

If you haven't joined us yet, what are you waiting for?
