This month’s meeting was movie night, the Guild was treated to a showing of “Gold Beaters” where we learned the process of creating gold for use in art. Our Early Bird was led by Maggie Gillikin who talked about 23 carat gold gilding and gave examples of gilding with various member’s artwork. During our Meeting, before the movie, Laura herold reported on our spring exhibit at Carver Center with reception on May 1, the deadline for getting work to Laura is April 28.
March’s General Meeting was a display of Oriental books, Art, and a Painting Demo with Maggie Gillikin. During the early bird, Maggie demonstrated gyotaku and showed Japanese Sendai dolls.
She demonstrated the strokes for writing Japanese, handouts and rice paper were provided for all to learn some Japanese writing. There was even a display of a Japanese fish kite!
We can hardly wait until next year…so we can do this again! The December potluck is another “hit”! There were also lots of interesting things on the share table from this year!
