We held 2 Raku firings to raise money for the Friends of the Library. Over $1000 was raised and a check was presented to the Friends of the Library on Sept 30. The funds will be used for an art hanging system in the new library. Our first Raku firing was at the Farmers Market on August 9th. Although another hot one, Mike Gallagher and Paul Gaston donned their heavy gloves and manned the kiln. Other members helped with glazing and the firing process.
The second firing was September 13th also at the Shoreview Farmers Market. It was a creative and fun way to support the library.
The ARTiculators meet every Monday morning from 10 to noon at the Shoreview Commuinty Center Fireside Lounge to chat with each other and discuss new ideas in art. This is a great way to become acquainted with fellow artists, and work together on projects. No required attendance every week!
ARTiculators sessions are as good as attending class without grades – with chairs that are much more comfortable than the classroom type. Come join the group. It’s free, loose in structure, and ideas abound.
Glass Cases Exhibit
Currently on display in the seven glass cases in the Fireside Lounge of the Shoreview Community Center is our annual "7 Artists in 7 Bays" exhibition. Our 7 artists are Gigi Gentzsch, Derek Settergren, David Bjorkquist, Patti Coverston, Jim Eberhardt, Dave Williams, and Nancy Lancaster.
The show will run through the end of June.
