December 1 Meeting

The next meeting on 12/1 will present Sandy Dennison with 'Black, the Forbidden Color'.
She would like this to be a paint along so bring your oils, acrylics, colored pencils, pastels or watercolors and a black ground. If you bring watercolors, bring a tube of white guache or white tempora to make it a bit more opaque. I have done this with Sandy before and it is great fun. WE will try to have some guache or tempora there for those who forget.

Other local artists and their shows:
from Aof RC:

Tammy Jo Fuller and Gary Fossaceca have pieces in the new "Toying with Imagination" exhibition at the Akron Art Museum! The exhibition is in the Corbin Gallery and includes 100 or so photos taken with toy cameras. The show runs through January 11, 2009. Museum hours are: Tuesday through Sunday - 11AM - 5PM, Thursday - 11AM - 9PM, Closed Mondays. It is a great exhibition and features a glass showcase with some vintage toy cameras on display. We hope you'll all be able to go!!!
Gary has some pieces hanging at the Viking Vineyards Winery on Old Forge Road in Kent. His work will be displayed in the Lake View Hospitality Room beginning the first week of November. Several other artists are included in this exhibition, too.
To get to the winery take I-76 east to exit 532 (exit #29 - Mogadore, Tallmadge), turn right on 532, turn left at the first light (Newton) and Viking Vineyards is about a mile down on the right... There is a sign directing you to the winery. The driveway back to the winery is a one-lane gravel road.
The hours are: Tues. thru Thurs. 5PM to 9PM, Fri. & Sat. Noon to 11PM, Sunday 1PM to 8PM. The wine here is amazing - especially the Red Kiss which is a chocolate-flavored red wine. They have some new wines, too - including an ice wine which is available for tasting. Let us know if you're going out and maybe we'll meet you. Gary's work should be up for a month. Thanks and we hope you can make it out!
