The Opening Reception is Friday, Sept. 2 from 5 - 8 pm with live Celtic & folk music by Randy & Carol Barnes, yummy eats provided by our talented artists, & a wine bar to enjoy. Take a look at the poster for more details of the show, and we'll see you and your beautiful new work soon! Chaffee Arts NEEDS YOU If you would like to support the arts in Chaffee County, here are some opportunities for you to serve on either the Chaffee Arts Board or on a committee: Treasurer (an urgent need), Workshops, Art in Public Spaces, Communications, Social Media, Education, just to name a few. If you have an interest or talent in any of these areas, or one that you think we might be missing, please volunteer! Remember that Chaffee Arts is BY art-lovers, FOR art-lovers, and it takes ALL of us to keep the arts vibrant and rewarding in Buena Vista. ANNUAL MEETING (& other important stuff) You're Invited - Chaffee Arts Board Meetings are Open to all Members 2016 ANNUAL MEETING - Join other members on Saturday, October 22 from 3 - 5 p.m. for the Chaffee Arts Annual Meeting at the Community Center Aspen Room (by the kitchen). You'll have a chance to visit, catch up after the summer, get involved, and ask Your Most Burning Art Questions for discussion. You don't want to miss this! Then, on the first Tuesday of every month from 6 - 8 pm, the Chaffee Arts Board - which represents YOU - meets in the Community Center Pinon Room to talk about events, direction, board needs, how we can partner with the town & local entities, and other really important stuff. And WE WANT OUR MEMBERS TO COME! We need your voice, ideas, and creative input to move forward with our shared vision. And in November we plan, with your help, to expand our meeting on a quarterly basis to include not only the board meeting, but dinner, a featured artist from among you, the opportunity for members to connect with other art-lovers, and a teaching session in an area of interest. If you like this idea, please make your voice heard!
