December 2018 Meeting - Secret Santa

CMMAG continued the tradition of a Secret Santa gift exchange in 2018.  Names were drawn in October, and the Secret Santa was given a bit of information about the recipient (favorite color, current obsession, etc.).  At the December meeting, we came together to present our creations.  It's such fun to see what everyone receives.  Below are some photos of the amazing art our members created. 

Megan's collage for Amy, along with a giant basket of gel plate printing supplies.
Alicia personalized a box for Cathy.

Maggie's piece for Elena.

Georgia O'Keeffe at NCMA

Hallo, my lovelies!

Yesterday, some of our wonderful guild people met up at the North Carolina Museum of Art for their current showing of Georgia O'Keeffe and others.  It was a great time and some beautiful art (and a very tasty lunch, as well)!

Here we are, waiting for our tasty food, with no real idea yet of how much prettiness we're about to go see.  We started out with some luscious florals and botanicals.

Georgia O'Keeffe, "Yellow Jonquils #3", and museum patron

Georgia O'Keeffe, "White Birch" c. 1925

And then we moved into some of the related/inspired works!

Loie Hollowell, "The Land's Part (Yellow, Blue, Green)" 2017

Caroline Larsen, "Skinny Dip", 2017

Dylan Gebbia-Richards, "Omni" 2018, Detail

There was so much more--life and light and color and inspiration.  You should go check out the show while it's still here!
