Anne Harrell and Jean Yates representing MAG
at Braitman Studio's Open House
Thanks to Nancy Kennedy! She got MAG a spot in the Braitman Studio's Open House last night (10/18) alongside Binders, Cheap Joe's, and other art organizations/services. We met lots of artists, established and beginners, with the single minded goal of making them aware that MAG exists. We told about our instructional monthly meetings, weekly life drawings and en plein air outings, the annual competitions/art sales and, of course,... the MAC (McDowell Arts Center in Matthews)!
Anne Harrell and Jean Yates helped Debbie Yacenda in the whole affair. We got one new member on the spot and added over 20 names to our email list. Our goal was to generate new interest in the guild by inviting artists to our meetings, which are always free and open to the public. The one new member was a total but pleasant surprise! He was already aware of MAG having gone to the life drawing sessions.
And... THANK YOU, ANDY BRAITMAN! He put on a great event with the food, beverages, door prizes and an art-loving crowd. We hope to be able to come again.
