Artists are encouraged to create new work and use the art to tell some story.  They are also encouraged to have a 3×5 card explaining their inspiration and a bit more about the piece.

Facility Interior/Exterior paint.  Repair of south wall complete.

Paint will be gray body with maroon trim.  The older double hanging sash windows will be blue.  Cedar surrounds on front windows will be painted white.  Periwinkle Painting is charging $7k for pressure washing and painting.  May be a bit additional to replace any rotten wood on porch.

Housekeeping Need to contact the person doing housekeeping for a possible change in schedule of visits.
Security Codes Ruth Hugeback is having Iconipro update their code list with people who are currently opening and closing the building.
Featured Artists We need to be sure to send thank you’s to the media outlets for including the Featured Artists in their publications.
Media Submissions We are still looking for someone who would be willing to take over Laurie Carlson’s duties for submitting press releases to the media.  Rosemary Wood-Hemm will be taking and submitting the photographs.
Nestucca Valley Artisans The field trip to the Nestucca Valley Artisans festival went well and was a great way to increase exposure of the ASA and its artists.

Welcome from the president
Landscaper Steve Rutherford needs to confirm.  No contract yet with Jon Monro.
Summer Member Show The Summer Show was very well received.  Board has decided the People’s Choice award should continue monthly.
Art Classes & Schedule Going well, number of sign ups has increased over last year.  One class has cancelled, the Monet Intensive, but will reschedule the second half of October.
Building re-paint Would like the painting scheme decision be made before the end of August, otherwise the painting won’t be done until next year.  The final decision on the color of the building will be made by the Board but member input is welcome.  Color palettes are available at the ASA for review.  Grant money not available for painting improvements.
Board approved $1500 building repair The end wall was taken off and replaced, flashing added and repainted.  It had been leaking into the gallery.  Will also need to have someone look at the chimney.  There is space between the chimney and the roof.  May need a cap over the chimney.
Culinary Center ASA needs to have a volunteer to contact the Culinary Center so we can work with them on catering our events.  Would like to have them begin catering at our Gallery Rehang in October.  Discuss with JoAnn Ballantyne and Sharon Cook
Calendars Calendars are on sale for $10 each and are on display in the gallery.
Mosaic Group Monthly Meeting Date Change The Mosaic Group’s monthly meeting date has changed to the third Friday of each month starting at 2:00 pm.
Cultural Center Pick up Chessman art next Tuesday, August 7th
Gallery Rehang and Opening Pick up Summer show art October 8

Oct 10, Re-hang 10:00 a.m. (encourage Members to come be trained as some team Members will be retiring end of 2018!)

Oct 12 Art Reception, 5-7 p.m.

New Handrail for ramp Tony installed a new handrail for the ramp, caulked the chimney and sprayed for ants.
Board Member Updates Kelli Walker leaving the end of the year.
Marilyn Wolverton new board member.
Karel Murphy new Acting Board Member.
Sharon Cook would like to end board member duties.
Rosemary Wood-Hemm will be the mosaic liaison.
New Business Vonelle Swanson is our new Artist of the Month.

Cindy Adams – Artists, be aware of email scams requesting information about art available for sale.  Tip off might be a very large dollar range in pricing for art that the person wants to know about.

Catherine Hingson – There was a comment by a couple of patrons at the recent Reception that they were unable to tell the artists from the guests.  It would be nice if a button or other name tag was provided that would let people know if you were one of the participating artists.

The theme for October at the Co-Op is Storytelling.

ASA board/membership is requested to choose the theme for January’s hang by October 1st for marketing and publicity purposes. 

Artwork related to the Storytelling theme will be displayed with a 3×5 card made by the artist that explains the story depicted in their painting.  Hopefully artists will have at least 1 new piece for this show.

The Co-op Gallery will have a storyteller (not solidified yet) who will likely be in the lower gallery area.  The ASA will still be able to have music or a storyteller in the Beachstone Gallery without competing noise from the Co-op.

There will be a small table displaying handmade books

Catherine Hingson will be having a van pool or caravan to the Nestucca Valley Artisans Festival on Saturday, August 25th.  Meet at the ASA at 10 a.m. and come support the arts and our local artists! Please RSVP to Catherine at playfulpaintbrush@gmail.com or (503)545-9339 so you don’t get left behind.

Be sure to  add photos and reviews for the ASA to Trip Advisor, Facebook, Yelp, and Google Maps to help raise awareness of the great resource the ASA is in the area.

NOTES:
The subject for Arlon’s Open Studio this week on Thursday, July 26th will be Lily Pads. If you haven’t been to an Open Studio yet this would be a great opportunity to join us and learn new techniques or brush up on ones you haven’t used in a while, all in a casual, fun environment. Students should plan on bringing their own supplies. There is never a charge.

THANK-YOU:
To everyone who helps at ASA,
I am so honored to have won ‘People’s Choice’ award.
Please pass along my thanks to everyone involved with making ASA such a great organization. Without all of you there would not be nearly as much inspiration and opportunity to learn, grow and present our creations to others. I have been a member for 7 or 8 years. Due to the members who give their time and talent, I have watched ASA grow and change in so many positive ways.
I applaud you all!
Thank you,
Heather
