The Guild’s October 2019 October Monthly Meeting will begin at 7:00 pm (instead of 6:30 pm)  Thank you.


Announced at the September Meeting:  The Lawrence Art Guild has been accepted to participate in the 2019 Festival of Trees as a tree donor.  We have filled out our Tree Profile to reflect the excitement at the September Meeting of the use of the Guild Bird Logo image.  The Festival of Trees as each donor for a Tree Name and a Tree Description.  The Guild’s 2019 Tree Name is “Birds of a Feather”.  With the donation going to the Children’s Shelter, The Guild tree description reflects the “spirit” of all children.  Before the end of October we will have templates of the Guild Bird, mini canvas frames (being ordered)



Thank you to Deena Amont (Art Teacher, Lawrence High School) for the nomination to the Kansas Art Education Association.  As a result of our monetary donations to help support the high school art program, Deena requested information from the Guild for the nomination for one of the 2019/2020 Outstanding Art Enhancers from the Kansas Art Education Association.  I am thrilled to announce that the Lawrence Art Guild was selected as one of three Outstanding Art Enhancers for 2019-2020 Year.  The award highlights the Guilds understanding of the value of including art in a well-rounded education.  We thank Deena Amont and the Kansas Art Education Association for the recognition award.  And, thank you to all members for being a part of the Guild and helping to make this happen.

Partnering with Black Stag Brewery, here is an opportunity to show your art work.    If you are interested in showing work at Black Stag Brewery please let me know.  In July we had our first show with works by Robbin Loomis.  The Brewery had on schedule an artist for August so we resume our shows of Guild artists with the September Final Friday (FF) opening.  Schedule follows and there is an opening for the November FF opening.  Remember the show runs from the Final Friday of a month until a week before the next Final Friday of the next month.  Members scheduled for 2019:
