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.
