Goodbye, 2016. Hello, 2017!

The Carolina Mixed Media Art Guild thanks all of our members and readers for following along on our creative journey via our meetings and our blog. 

2016 was a wonderful year; we've had many opportunities to display and sell our work; we've supported each other in our various creative endeavors; we've reached out to our wider community to share our talents; and we've learned and laughed a great deal along the way. 

As we transition into new leadership next month, we look forward to even more ways to share what we love:  all things mixed media!  We welcome new members, current members, and those returning after a time away to our diverse group of artists, on all points of the creative journey--we've all got something to share. 

Our first meeting of the new year will be on Thursday, January 12th, at the Chavis Community Center in Raleigh (500 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard).  We have a "soft start" at 6:30, giving us time to mingle, grab a snack, and check out the goodies on the trade and giveaway tables.  The business portion of the meeting begins at 7:00, and we usually finish by 8:45.  The January meeting is always a busy one, where yearly membership dues of $30 are collected, the year's calendar is created, and members sign up for various trips, demos, and volunteer activities throughout the year.  We will also vote on the slate of new officers for the 2017--2019 term, and those elected take office that evening.

So come join us, we look forward to welcoming you as we ring in a fantastically creative 2017!
