Light Winds, 2013, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on canvas, 12"x12"
Marco Island Center for the Arts director Lynn Holley visited me about a month ago and ask if I would be willing to chair the Gallery Committee at the Arts Center for the coming year. Since I believe in giving back, and it's been a while since I had been active in the broader arts community, I agreed to give it a try.
Some of the programs for the coming year are already in place or in the works. For example, we will have an exhibition for the Florida Chapter of the National Association of Women artists in January, and one on Trains, Planes, and Automobiles, in Feb of 2014. And there's a core committee of wonderful members in place too.
If you have an idea for an exhibition, want to sponsor an exhibition, or have an interest in joining this active and fun committee, just let me know. Our first meeting will be August 5, at the Art Center. Hope you'll join me in producing some new and exciting art exhibitions for Marco.
Today's painting, Light Wind is painted in acrylic on canvas. I like the square format very much, and will do a couple more companion pieces to this one as time allows in the weeks ahead.
