Dear Members, Patrons, and Friends,

We welcome everyone to our meetings. We have many important issues to discuss and we would like input from all of our members. We have shows coming up and we have need for many Crafts for our Christmas show of which Yuki Hall is in charge. I know that we have many who do crafts other than painting. We encourage you to display those talents also.

Also for a reminder. Sue and I have been involved with the Sweet Corn Festival for 25 years. In the past year I have logged everything that is involved with my job. Many are simple half-hour jobs during the year. Only when it gets time for festival does work really get hectic. Over the years we have refined many processes down to where there is very little work compared to way it was when we took on these jobs.  If you and/or a friend would like to get involved, we are here to help. You must be on board by July. Remember this festival is what keeps the membership rates low. It pays for building rent, scholarships, speakers, entertainment and much more. If this money doesn’t come in, then the membership dues will need to be doubled or more to keep the organization going.

Charles and Mary Hart

Charlie had a bad fall in April and fractured his neck. He was in the hospital for quite a while and was eventually released to rehab. After two months in rehab, Charlie returned home last month (August). He is still unable to walk alone, and Mary is providing all his care while she is trying to find someone to come in to help with Charlie’s care from time to time. He does receive therapy at home, but of course that does not give Mary a break.  I know they would enjoy cards from their FAA friends.

Dear Members, Patrons, and Friends,

Greetings. Fall is just around the corner and already we are having cooler mornings and evenings. Before you know it, September 5th will be here for our first meeting after the summer off. As your new President, I invite you to attend this meeting to get back into the swing of things. The Board will meet at 6 pm and the members’ meeting will begin at 7 pm. Pat Dunker will be the demo artist as well as having her paintings on display in the Gallery. Refreshments will be provided by the Board members.

We have a lot on our plates for this year and we will get through it. If you have anything you would like the Board to discuss, please get it to me by the Friday before the meeting. Call 937-879-3238 or email my wife at suered@sbcglobal.net.

Another Sweet Corn Festival behind us and we are already starting to work on next year’s! Thanks to all who helped in any way. Currently we are looking for someone to take over my job. I have written notes on what to do and when and how to do it. It is much easier than it has been in many past years. My wife and I have been involved for over 25 years and it is time someone younger took over. This brings in our money to run the art association. It pays our bills, scholarships, and artists that we bring in during the year. Preliminary figures show how successful this year’s show was:  9,000 ears of cooked corn were sold; 1,550 chicken halves were sold; 106 cases (2,544 bottles) of ICB root beer were sold; our booth – 198 watermelons (approximately 2,000 cups) were sold; kettle corn vendor went through 575 pounds of popcorn; several craft vendors reported 1-1/2 to 2 times the sales from the previous year.  Again, thanks to all who helped in any way.

SEPTEMBER SPEAKER—PAT DUNKER

Pat’s demo will be the use alcohol inks in art. Since Pat became an artist, she has become more “in tune” to the wonder and beauty of all God’s creations.  Although Pat started painting when her husband was in the Air Force, she didn’t pursue it rigorously until she and Kirk started going to Florida for the winter. There she met Frank Covino, a Master of oil painting and teaching others to paint like the Old Masters. It changed her painting and her life. Through Frank’s tutoring, she became proficient enough to be invited to paint in the Louvre in Paris in 2010. She painted “Madame Pasteur” by Baron Jean Baptiste Gross. Thousands paint in the Louvre each year but every 2 years about 130 people are invited to bring their paintings back to Paris for a special exhibition and Pat was invited to do this in 2012, one of the best experiences of her painting career. In 2016, she received a scholarship to paint plein aire oils in Southern France. Pat continued to develop and learn new techniques in oil, watercolor, acrylics, and alcohol inks with such well known artists as Frank Covino, David Leffell, Gayle Bennett in oil; plus Louise Jackson, Birgit O’Connor, Janet Rogers, Anne Abgott, Sterling Edwards, Fred Graff, Joe Fettingis, Mitchell Tolle, Suzanna Winton, and Jean Haines in watercolor; plus Cathy Taylor in alcohol inks. Pat has been involved in many art organizations and is currently Workshop Coordinator for Fairborn Art Association, Treasurer for Western Ohio Watercolor Society, plus is a member of Bonita Springs Art Association, Cape Coral Art League, and SW Florida Portrait Society in Florida.

ART SUPPLIES SALE

Come early to our September meeting for a chance to buy or sell second-hand art supplies, which will be displayed on the table by the window. The Gallery will open at 5:30 pm for you to bring your art supplies to sell or look over what is available to buy. Please, no artwork to be sold at this time. Each person will price his/her own products and conduct sales. The Fairborn Art Association does not charge a commission, so you keep any money you make on sales.
