October Newsletter

ctober 2015
Murfreesboro Art League Newsletter October
This Friday: Boro Art Crawl!

It’s hard to believe that Murfreesboro FINALLY has an art crawl. We are showing middle TN that we have a thriving arts community here in the ‘Boro! Not only will the gallery be open with over 40 paintings by various artists, but the following members have art elsewhere: Heloise Shilstat is at Sugaree’s*, Andrea Jewell is at Hasting House, Carol Berning is at Top of the Block, Suzanne LeBeau is at L & L Contractors, and one of our newest members, Laine Cantrell is at Walnut House. *Past member Beth Moore is also there. The Boro Art Crawl is Friday, Oct. 9 from 6-9 pm.
Upcoming Monday classes:
     For the month of October, we won’t have any “official” teachers. By request, we are having a month of “open studio.” During this time, we ask that you bring something to work on for yourself. We’ll chat and help with each other’s work if someone asks for help. Enjoy!
   Although we are almost done with the year, Peggy is hard at work trying to SQUEEZE in a few more classes for November. More info on these will be in the next newsletter.


If you count ALL of our members who had separate booths, MAL was well represented! We had 5 booths. Counting Gayle Levee’s plein air class, we had 6 folks out painting that day. Several prints and some paintings were sold, and we gave out our entire stack of brochures, and answered many questions about the art league.

Opportunity: Win $$ and recognition for your paintings and photography! Wilson Bank’s Oktoberfest gives cash prizes! Visit their page for more info! Katie has offered to take art for us. She’ll pick it up on Mon, Oct 12, but we must let her know BEFOREHAND! Email if you need this service!

Artists of the month
Jenny Liang will be our featured artist at the gallery. Norma Holder will be the Artist of the Month over at Linebaugh Library.

Professional teachers: Carol Curtis has Wednesday watercolor classes. Come see a different style of doing watercolors vertically! More info and samples here:
Gayle Levee has Saturday oil classes (plein air). One of the methods she will cover is “pre-mixing paints so you don’t lose the spontaneity of plein air works. Visit more info.
Mary Missy Veazie, who usually teaches a loose style of oil or acrylics on Tues and Fri is taking a little break. She’ll do occasional workshops. For more info:
