Aloha KSA members and friends,
KSA’s next show is right around the corner! The annual holiday show is opening on November 23, 2012 so we wanted to get the word out so you can compile your great work and be prepared.
This year we’re calling it “BIG SHOW small work 2012”. As in years past this show will be limited to small works, 16” x 16” x16” and is great opportunity for our members to provide affordable original art to the community. This year we have asked several gallery owner’s from the island to participate as judges to help design the show and award cash prizes for particularly strong work. All members are entitled to include up to 5 pieces with one held back to fill the show as sales are made. Please participate. In last year’s show 160 pieces were included from over 50 artists and there was brisk sales volume. Let’s surpass those numbers this year.
We have included detailed criteria, entry forms and labels for entries within this mailer. This year’s show is chaired by Robert Lober. You can reach him via cell phone at (206) 795-9132 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, we are looking for volunteers to assist on entry day, to hang the show and for general help with logistics, publicity, the opening reception and just about any help you care to offer! Contact Robert directly if you have skills and time to pitch-in.
An Appeal to our Membership!
As you all know, there has been some turnover in the organization over the past few years. Now is the time to get involved. If you value this organization, please participate. Board meetings are held the first Tuesday of the month at 4:30 at the KSA gallery in Kukui Village Shopping Center. There are plenty of ways you can participate, whether on the board or as active volunteers.
We are actively improving our communications to our members and friends. A small sub-committee is forming to develop a communications plan to keep our membership informed. Watch for coming developments and emails with details. We are also building our contact list and membership. If you know of artists or friends who would like to be involved or who may have been involved in the past, let them (and us) know! If you know someone who should be on our mailing and email list please have them contact Robert Lober (contact info above).
Art Kauai 2012
Art Kauai ran from August 3rd thru September 11, 2012. The show was curated by David Behlke from Oahu. 54 island artists participated and 76 works were exhibited. The State foundation purchased work by Michelle Dick, Francis DuBois and Licia McDonald. In addition, Cash prizes of over $700 were awarded to 9 artist participants. Look for coming announcements of the planning for Art Kauai 2013. This year we’re working on getting more advance notification out about timing, entry days, juror, etc. (see above). Are there any interested parties out there willing to Chair Art Kauai 2013?
