Meeting Recap 1/26/13 - CPSA's 2012 Exhibitions Review

Artwork on display!
CPSA DC219 had a great 2013 kick-off meeting last week!

We began with our usual meeting updates from Prez Jeff:

• First on the list is our full 2013 Meeting Calendar! If you didn't get one at the meeting, check it out here

• Next month we'll be visiting Patrick Carr's Studio where we'll learn all about digital imaging capture and output!
• Get your influences in order! March is MUSE MONTH, bring  examples of your favorite inspirational artwork, artists, etc!
• We have several shows on the schedule this year. Get yourselves prepared for:

APR: Masterworks Miniatures!
SEP: St. Mark's On-the-Mesa
OCT: DC219 Annual Showa t The Old School House Gallery
TBD: we're in the process of organizing a State Wide Colored Pencil Show. Volunteers from our group will be getting this process going ASAP.

SPECIAL REQUEST: Audrey Mindard is doing an Artist Trading Card presentation for kids and is looking for examples she can include! The event is in June, so if you have any you could lend, please bring them to the March, April, or May meetings. Audrey will return all cards at the July meeting.


After all that excitement, Rex set us up to watch the CPSA's 2012 Show Exhibitions, including the International Exhibition and Explore This! —*including all the award winners! It was a great opportunity to see all the gorgeous works in those shows. Bonus: Rex shared photos from his last trip to the big Flea Market Show in Oregon. They were some really cool and inspiration shots, thanks so much Rex!
