Our October exhibit at Artspace was once again a validation of the amazing art produced by our members along with being a testament to the willingness of our members to step up to make it a success through their volunteer efforts.
Eighty-three works from twenty-six artists transformed the Artspace gallery from blank walls to a beautiful gallery show! We are so fortunate to be able to utilize the Artspace gallery
What did it take to make this happen?
Volunteers working each week at Artspace. The willingness of those who donate their time makes the availability of the space possible. We have a contract with Artspace that outlines the exchange of our volunteer time with our gallery availability along with our rotating display on the Artspace wall. We recently provided the corporate office of Artspace with a retrospective of the past year of our relationship and are optimistic that our contract will be renewed for the coming year.
Reba Young took on the role of Chair for the event and did an awesome job! From planning through the final stages, she was there every step of the way. She and her husband also took down the art then patched and painted even before pick up was completed.
Jean Pechtel orchestrated her team of nine “hanging team” volunteers, finding the best way to showcase the work then hanging the art to create a coehsive and beautiful exhibit.
Ten volunteers assisted with the reception through the donation
of food, decorations, equipment, and/or time with the actual set
up and clean up jobs.
Charlotte Nolan set up a very nice table featuring finger food for
the “Artists Creating Art” events on Sunday afternoons.
Seven AFA artists volunteered one or both Sunday afternoons as
“Artists Creating Art”. While “working” on their art in the
gallery space they were available to interact with visitors and
made it possible for the gallery to be open at a time when it is
normally closed to the public.
Our organization, and what we are able to accomplish, is directly related to the“CAN DO” attitude and willingness of our member volunteers!
A huge THANK YOU to all who have helped in the past
and to those of you who will step forward in the future!
