Community Run…….It’s almost here!
The Guild is participating in the Community Run again this year. AOM residents,
Stephanie Mc Laughlin and Clyde Davis, have volunteered to represent us. The
money we raise will be matched by her employer and the Community Fund. Let’s all
make an effort to donate a minimum of $5. You can also run or walk for the cause
and get your own sponsors for AOM/GCAG. The monies will go toward student
scholarships as well as free classes for students in the community. We need our
members to help with this fund raiser. Also we can win an additional $500 for the
best decorated table.
It’s easy to donate!
Go to: donatenow.networkforgood.org/2018cfrun
Choose an amount listed or go to the empty amount button and type in the amount
you want to donate. Once you put in your donation amount, make sure to type in
your gift designation, Gaston County Art Guild. Then follow the remainder of the
instructions on how to pay.
It’s that easy!!!!
Please help support the Community Run and the Gaston County Art Guild so we
can continue to support our community with the arts.
We will also have a booth at the fun run! Check the map. We are Booth 20. So come by and say HI!
We thank you!
Our April meeting will be held on April 10th at 6:00 pm. We will be voting on the
new Guild by-laws. It is very important that the members are involved with this
vote, so please save the date and make every effort to be at the monthly meeting.
After we have a short business meeting and vote for the by-laws, Jackie Laine, an
AOM Resident Artist, will be our presenter.
Jackie Laine, also known as Jacqueline Ramey, is an artist whose work reflects an
inward personal journey through mythological archetype and symbols. Originally
from Ohio and currently residing in Gastonia, she earned a BFA degree from UNC
with a concentration in painting. She was awarded an Emerging Regional Artist’s
Grant as well as an Arts in Education Grant. She has been featured in the
newspaper for her artwork which included a church mural project as well as a
public art installation, Chairs on Parade, initiated by the McColl Center of
Charlotte. She is currently employed by Gaston County Schools as an art teacher.
Ms. Laine has recently been exploring adding sculptural components to her
paintings which include mask forms as well as painting on silk fabric.
How to Look at Art in New Ways
What makes each of us connect with a piece of art either in an intellectual or
emotional way? Is it the color, mood or subject matter? What we like tells as much
about each of us as well as the art we find distasteful does. Come and learn how to
see art with a new perspective and appreciation as we explore the concept of
Synesthesia within this interactive presentation.
Here are the winners of this years A Natural View.
The Guild's monthly meeting will be on March 13th at 6:00pm in the commons area at Arts on Main.
After a short business meeting, we will have a presentation on navigating through social media.
Bring your laptops, tablets and/or phones as you become "acquainted with social media."
Save the date and join us for a fun learning experience!
