December Newsletter

Eek, I'm slacking! Have a wonderful and safe holiday season everyone!

Murfreesboro Art League Newsletter – Dec. 2014
December classes: We will NOT have classes in December.

MAL Christmas party! It will be held on Mon, Dec, 8 from 7-9. We ask that you bring something good to eat (to SHARE, of course!) If you want to participate in the gift exchange, bring a wrapped gift that you made yourself. It can be food, a piece of art, or whatever, as long as it is made by you.

December Artists of the Month: This month, the featured artist at our gallery will be our own Clarice Nelson. Yes, I KNOW she was it last month, but we only have 1 day of the gallery being open in December, so there is no sense in getting someone new for that day.
Over at the Linebaugh Library, we are having a Christmas and winter theme. So far, we have works by Phyllis Razo, Claire Smith and Suzanne LeBeau. More might come tomorrow (see above under Dec. classes.)
Thank YOU, if you worked at the gallery at all this year. We had a lot more people helping out, and that has made it much easier on the board members. Also, thanks go to those who helped paint faces and welcome people to the Cannonsburgh Fall Festival.

Christmas at Cannonsburgh will be held on NEXT Sat, Dec, 6 from 10-3 pm. This is during the day time, so they have said that we can have the gallery open again this year. *Last year, we were closed due to the evening hours and the hayride running. (safety reasons)  We are BUYING goodies and do not have to mess with the hot chocolate this year! (yay!) So all you have to do is show up. They are having vendors again this year, so maybe we will sell some art for Christmas presents!

Since we won’t have a members’ meeting or board meeting until Jan, here are a few upcoming events to prepare for:
·            We’ll have a show at “Top of the Block” in Jan or Feb (I’ll have to check on the dates.)

·      We will have open studio time the first month, while we prepare classes for later in the year.
·      Several visiting artists will start having classes at the gallery on days OTHER than Mondays. Missy Veazie, Pam Hull, Gayle Leuce, Danny Jones and a plein aire group plan to meet here. I’ll send details when I get them.

The Frist Center for Visual Arts
has a show on Kandinsky right now through Jan 4. Let’s do a road trip. They also have free entry in exchange for canned goods on Mondays. Check out the link above.
Dates to remember:
·         Dec 6 – Christmas at Cannonsburgh 10-3
·         Dec 7-April – MAL Gallery is closed to the public for winter.
·         Dec 8 – MAL Christmas party 7-9 pm.
