Thanks to Amy Flowers for a fascinating presentation about the world of art installation and specifically Abu Daubi. What interesting things you do!

Thanks also to Joyce Fisher for the refreshments!



What a great 3 days we had. We set up on Friday and the Festival had a dinner featuring 5 artists plus the WAAL booth. Our booths were the only ones open that evening and we started off with a sale!

On Saturday and Sunday we were very busy. A total of 15 artists participated/volunteered, we had a total of 22 sales by 8 artists, and 4 sales of Kroger prints. The total dollar sales equaled $2182. Pretty impressive!

Thanks to Diana for all the preliminary work, Sean Wang and Bill Westerman for set up and being available all day and all the volunteers who helped with set up, sales, running errands, take down when we thought the rain was coming, set up again and finally take down. What a terrific team effort. The WAAL members are a wonderful group of folks to work with.

Also a special thanks to the McConnell Arts Center team for putting together a great festival. They were so gracious to ask us to be apart of the weekend, provided us with a free tent and helped with countless things. If you see Jon Cook, Jenny Danker or any of the McConnell staff please thank them for this wonderful opportunity.

The July meeting will be informal with a swap meet and still life drawing. Bring anything you wish to trade, sell or give away – art related. This could include equipment, materials and even paintings.

If you send me your wants or needs I will put them in the next news letter ram.art@hotmail.com <mailto:ram.art@hotmail.com> Also please invite any friends who have items to swap!

I am looking for a small easel and box for painting that will d pencils or pens and we will have tables and chairs set up for drawing. If you want to paint, you must bring a cloth to cover the floor.

>>>> Over the past 7 years we (WAAL artists) have had an exhibit at the Worthington Mall Kroger Store.

It consisted of 18×24 prints of original artwork by our artists. Several of our artists sold their original paintings as a result of this advertising mode. The league benefited also since any prints made or sold from the exhibit were to go to the student award program. In January 2018 we concluded the exhibit and we still have some of the prints (18×24) These are available to WAAL members at a reduced price of $35. They are all mounted on foamboard, ready for matting and framing.
They will be available at our July meeting.


are welcomed and encouraged to come to Granville to demonstrate and display your work.
