Torri Epperson with Mountain View Chamber of Commerce expressed her

desire to promote Arts and Crafts in the Mountain View area with a

September Arts Month. She has also been given the permission to

purchase benches that will be unveiled during September Art Month. The

bench will be paid for by a donor and painted at the Paintin’ Place and

located somewhere in town along the square. Anyone interested in being a

part of this project, please contact Phyllis Haynes.

September Art Month includes:

Labor Day Monday, September 5th It was suggested to have an Open Air

Artist on the Square, would like a commitment from 3 or 4 artists.

Duane Hada Presentation @ Ozarka College, September 9th – 10th, 7pm.

Duane will paint on a blank canvas with a camera attached to or over his

shoulder, while his brother, Ken Hada, Poet, will read poetry and Charlie

Mink will play his dulcimer. Tickets are $10.00. We could use a Guild

member to hostess, selling artwork, CD’s, etc. at a table.

Off the Beaten Path Studio Tour - September 16th, 17th, and 18th

Fall Art Sale: September 23rd -24. It has been proposed that the Fall Art

Sale be held at the Cornerstone Building this year rather than in October at

the Historical Society building. This will be a joint effort of the Art Guild and

the Craft School. Some of the advantages of moving the Fall Art sales date

and location to Cornerstone are:

1. Larger room to accommodate more artwork.

2. Location, Location, Location. This is a very busy corner and would

generate a great deal more traffic.

3. The Craft School will pay for electricity.

Also Lane Berg of Timbo suggests a “Children’s Station” for hands on

activities for children while parents shop.
