ART Meeting. Monday May 21 at 6:30 at Hardesty Regional Library.

Program: A rare treat! A silversmith!

Rachel Rose is an amazing young talent. She grew up in the Kendal-Whittier area, attended the Tulsa School for the Arts and also studied with Bill Derrevere. Her silversmithing work is both traditional and unconventional. Preferring natural textures with a muted finish her artisan jewelry line reflects the natural world from which she draws inspiration. She creates jewelry with complex layers difficult or impossible to achieve with modern mass-production methods. Each unique piece is formed by hand and a true work of art. Google her name and look at dillonrose.net to see some impressive pieces.


           May cookie angels are Delores Creekmore, Lee Snapp, Cindy Johnson and Kay Robinson. Decorator is Kay Robinson. Thank you, everyone!!!

Becky Foust needs a volunteer to fill the 2 coffee thermoses and bring them every meeting. Please let her know if you can help with this.

We have chosen Friday June 8th for "member's night" to celebrate the opening of the "Some Like it Hot" Alpha Rho Tau art exhibition at the Tulsa PAC. The show runs for several weeks. The due date for art submissions is Monday May 21st. I will have entry forms at the meeting that night.

To engage more people and invite more guests we want to send invitations via email. To do so, WE NEED MORE EMAIL ADDRESSES to build our invitational email list.

Each person receiving our emailed Exhibit Invitations will have the option to easily opt out of getting future emails.  Who would you like to see attending the Alpha Rho Tau Art Shows???

We would like each A.R.T. member to make a list of people to invite to our Art Shows. 


~ If you submit 10 email addresses you will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a nice gift at our May 21, General Meeting.

~ For each 10 additional addresses you submit you will get another raffle ticket. 

The Winner will receive a Windsor-Newton 18" x 24" Gallery Wrap canvas

Please send all lists of email addresses by Monday, May 21 to Linda Dunbar at: artzyone@cox.net 

Note:  Each of the addressees will be able to opt out of future emailed invitations.  The email addresses we collect will not be sold or otherwise distributed.

We have a good number of people signed up already. Our committee is working hard to make it a successful three day event. Post Oak Lodge has invited us to have a group to come out and Plein Air Paint during the Wine and Jazz festival. I will be organizing a list of artist and putting details together later this summer. We have just received word that Plein Air Magazine will be giving us three subscriptions to their magazine and Rosemary Brush Company is donating a $100 brush bouquet.

The Oklahoma Sculpting Society of Tulsa will be participating in Plein Air Tulsa! this year. They will give $100 for a sculpting prize. I am hoping to match that so it will encourage more sculptors to compete. They will be judged separate from all other mediums. 
We still need sponsors to help cover the cost of the reception, extras for swag bags, printing and gift for artists. Sponsors will have their names listed on our publication and all publicity items. 

We need artist to send new work for their albums. Anyone can create an album on Facebook with no more than 14 pieces.

Sapulpa Arts is gearing up for our 30th Anniversary and Arts Show on June 2, art turn in is June 1. I have mailed paper copies to those I have addresses for and I am following up with emailed PDF for those I may have missed. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Keep creating and I can’t wait to see what comes through my door this year.
