November newsletter

Murfreesboro Art League Newsletter – Nov. 2014
November classes: November 3, 10, and 17 – Watercolor with Phyllis Razo!” Come see what tricks Phyllis has up her sleeve! Supplies needed are watercolor paints, brushes and a palette. You will also need your own paper towels. On day 1, you will need 2 sheets of watercolor paper about 8x10 or 9x12.*individual sheets will be available for purchase if you don’t want to buy a full sheet or pad from the store. On day 2, you can bring some small watercolor sheets or cardstock to make cards. Day 3 will be working on the piece that we will start on day 1.

November Artists of the Month: This month, the featured artist at our gallery will be our own Clarice Nelson. As founder of this league, it is her moment to shine!
Over at the Linebaugh Library, we will showcase the works of our newer members. Sometimes, it is hard to fill an entire display case when you are just starting out. Right now, Linda Rex and Sandee Fritcher have expressed an interest, but we would like at LEAST 3-4 (up to 7) more artists. Each should provide 2 or 3 pieces of medium size, preferably framed or painted around the edges. If we DO get 9 new members showing, then it will be only one piece each.

Special thanks go to Claire and Peggy for helping with the student tours this month. The kids love it! (Wait, it seems like I said the same thing LAST month. Thanks again, ladies!)

Also, thanks a bundle to those who helped with the Harvest Days. It is always exciting when we get a crowd.

Fall Festival at Cannonsburgh: This Friday will be the Fall Festival at Cannonsburgh. We have been asked to give out candy and do face painting. It is from 2-5 throughout the village. WE NEED MORE VOLUNTEERS for this!

Wilson Bank Oktoberfest – We had a beautiful weekend for the event. Phyllis Razo won a first prize for watercolor portrait AND one for watercolor landscape. Suzanne LeBeau won second place in acrylic landscape and third place in mixed media. Katie Plummer won second prize in mixed media.

The Todd Art Gallery at M T S U is hosting a new show which will run through November 14   It is an exhibit of work from the officers of the Mid-South Sculpture Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the creation and understanding of sculpture. Sculpture educates; effects social change; and engages artists; art professionals and community in dialogue.
The Frist Center for Visual Arts –
has a show on Kandinsky right now through Jan 4. Let’s do a road trip.
Our new sign is HERE! Thanks Ted! It looks great! Come check it out on the front of the building.
Christmas: Our Linebaugh theme will be Christmas, so get your Christmas painting started so it will be ready in a month.
