Another Name Change in DAA
Jane Kraeuche Olson, member from New Glarus, WI, has asked that we change her last name to Corwin. After a study of family ancestery, Jane and husband, Louey, discovered an original family name that they prefer to use. Jane's address, phone number and husband remain the same.
Sadly, Jane passed away in 2022. She will be greatly missed, as will the beautiful art she created.
Sad News for Us. Our member Linda Shannon is leaving Monticello, WI and moving to the State of Georgia to be closer to a daughter and grandkids. Linda, you will be missed by the DAA. Thank you for allowing us to visit your studio, joining us on a paint-out, and letting us hear about your art shows. Our best wishes go out to you for continued success in the world as an artist, a grandmother, and nurse volunteer aboard your hospital ship coming up.
2019 Summer Figure Drawing Studio
was a SUCCESS
At the August 8th, 2019, meeting of the DAA Board, it was decided we would host this event again in 2020. Unfortunately, Covid-19 happened instead, and all activities have been put on hold.
Our Man From Apple River, IL, Roger Earth, tells this writer that there will be a new art gallery opening in Elizabeth, IL in April or May. It will be located in the Old General Store. Besides a gallery, a classroom for artists is planned. Let's keep eyes and ears open. ??? www.linda@artists&artisans.us ???
- Second Presidential Art Challenge -
Sometimes inspiration needs a little kick start, so we are holding a quarterly art challenge for our members. Take the suggested theme and run with it in your own imagination and style. Interpret the theme any way you wish.
Submit a picture of your creation to Joan Stackpole email@example.com for her to post on our website and Facebook page. We will be lookiing for work around which the DAA can write a proposal for a group show.
Thanks to Valerie Wiehman-Rock for this suggestion and Mary Zierold for the first theme of Window Boxes! This second theme, PATH, came from Bonnie Schetski.
NOTE: DAA PATH EXHIBIT PROPOSAL WAS TURNED INTO THE MONROE ARTS CENTER JUST DAYS BEFORE THE CENTER WAS CLOSED DUE TO SAFETY ISSUES REGARDING THE CORONA-19 VIRUS. AS OF MAY 10TH, 2020, NO WORD HAS COME TO US CONCERNING THIS EXHIBIT.
UPDATE: JULY 11, 2022 - WE ARE STILL RIDING THE TIDE OF COVID-19, BUT WILL WORK WITH MAC TO GET ON THE EXHIBIT SCHEDULE WHEN WE CAN.
