This is a reminder to all members that the upcoming meeting on November 12th could be the most important one of the year! Elections for our board are being held, so please plan to attend to cast your vote or be sure to fill out a proxy form.
Also, we have a very special guest presentation from Icelandic painter Sossa. She is currently a guest at GRCC and a Fullbright Scholar. Sossa has been dedicated to her art form since 1982. She was born and raised in the small Icelandic town of Keflavík, where she still produces the majority of her work. She also has a studio in Copenhagen where she paints a few months out of the year, and holds a yearly event on Copenhagen’s Night of Culture taking place in October. Sossa has produced a large body of work over the years, which adorns the walls of homes, companies, and institutions across the world. Check out her website by clicking on the image below.
AVCA Artists! Please note that the intake for our new show is this Wednesday, November 6th from 10:00am to 2:00pm at the AVCA Gallery!
Here is a great way for AVCA members and artists to give back to the community that has given us such great support.
Each year the City of Auburn employees come together to raise funds for selected non-profit agencies in the Auburn area, and 100% of what is raised is donated. This year’s Employee Giving Campaign Auction will be held on December 10, 2013, will benefit The Auburn Food Bank and Terry Home.
We would like to take this opportunity to ask for your support in this important endeavor. This an all-volunteer effort by employees of the City of Auburn. While many City of Auburn employees provide items for the auction, we must also rely on the generosity of our citizens and artist community for donations.
If you’re interested in donating artwork or another item by December 6th, you can contact or deliver your donation to either Maija McKnight, Parks Arts and Recreation (910 Ninth Street SE) or Linda Ball, Human Resources (City Hall, 25 W Main, 2nd Floor). Painting, ceramics, jewelry, photography…we’d gladly accept any donation.
Thank you for your consideration.
