President's Report

Summer is coming fast and HOT!

SAAG has lots going on as per usual.  You should have all seen the notice for the Cornerstone exhibition deadlines coming up.  This is a great opportunity for you to display your art in a public place at a reasonable price.  You might even sell it, many of our members do.  Check out the info found on the website and in this newsletter and consider participating.

Congratulations on the re-election of our Executive Board; President-Jeanie Merideth; Vice-President-Diana Wolfe; Secretary-Julie Newcome and Treasurer-Melissa Rogers.  We also have several committee chairs returning and some new faces that we are all looking forward to working with.

The new Gallery space is continuing to work out great for SAAG.  We are still getting great comments from new customers and existing customers that have followed us from the Casas Adobes location.  The new session is scheduled to start in August.  If you are currently in the gallery and would like to be considered to continue please make sure to contact Melissa Rogers.  If you know of fellow artists that missed getting in the first session please make sure they apply soon to be considered.  They may go to the web site and click on Gallery Application .

The SAAG board is looking for someone with experience in applying for Grants.  If you have worked on this kind of project in the past please contact me at the number below.

We continue to seek new volunteers in various areas of the Guild and the Gallery.  If you have some time to contribute please contact me to discuss where you might fit in.  "Many hands make light work"
