Hello Artists,

Today there were only three of us at the Guild meeting. Autumn, Pam Elmore(new), and myself Maeona.
I brought my latest NW Coast Native American Design to show-n-tell. You can see it at

The June 14th entry

Pam does pottery so I let her know that she isn't alone and told her Teresa Knight and Jan Rentenaar and Pat Brame are all clay and pottery people around here and that there may be something happening for the summer with Pat.

We discussed the upcoming Sauerkraut Festival and the possibilities that there may fewer venders if the city can't work out insurance. They are asking the venders to provide their own and that is proving to be spendy for some.

I was able to contact Jim Westall about the guild purchasing his hanging walls and stands. He had to check in his garage but he says he has six walls and is checking for the legs and attachments. He will call me back about price.

I stopped in at the Library and reserved the room the Friday (Sept. 18th from 4-8 for art acceptance and set up) and the Day of the Festival (Sept. 19th from 10-6 for the show and sale) We will pick up the key on the Thursday before and drop it in the book drop when finished as the Library is closed during the Festival.

Jennifer please stop by in the next 7 days and pay for the room. Thanks!

Jennifer provided a letter and Autumn sent requests to Art Envy, Art Media, Art Supply Warehouse, Blick Art Materials, Cheap Joes, Columbia Art & Drafting Supply, Craft Warehouse, Dixie Art Supplies, Jerry' Artarama, Joann's Fabric and Craft Store, Michaels Craft Store, Muse Art & Design, and Utrecht Art Supplies requesting support for the show in the form of cash, gift certificates, or merchandise to be used as awards.

We are looking for suggestions for a Judge. With the short time frame of having only one day for the show we are looking at the judging actually happening during the show and awards announced late in the day when we do the People's Choice announcement as well. We know that is an unusual way to do it but the only way we see that might work. Help!

On the acceptance/hanging night (Sept. 18th from 4-8) is the time we need the most help! Please call me 503-543-7482 if you will be available for any of that time. Please help, it's only once a year, one day.
