A Blog about Finding Inspiration

"We have a wonderful world to be inspired by and each new day is like an adventure into the unknown, where things that require a second glance can be captured in time on a canvas for anyone to enjoy forever." (Louise Corke)

CAG President 's meeting 1 ' 13

Charleston Artists Guild Exhibitors packed the CAG Gallery this evening to hear our President, Ron Gibbs, present the latest details of our gallery' operation.
After examining the analysis that Ron gave us on monthly sale and foot traffic pattern and the effects of advertising, the members engaged in a lively brainstorming session on how we could continue to build on the momentum  we have going.
It's so motivating to be part of a group that takes sincere interest in  promoting success.

CAG Wall Updated 1'13

It's  been too cold for out of door activities , so I decided to  drive to refresh my wall  at the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery with some bird paintings before the Wildlife convention opens next month.  ( Just wish I'd snapped the reference photo AFTER I straighten the paintings and took the ID labels off  SIGH!).
Just being in the gallery gives me a morale boost.  It is so nice to hang out with people who like art.

Sterling Phillips speaks at Seacoast Artist Guild 1 '13

Sterling Phillips was guest speaker at  the Sea Coast Artist Guild meeting on Sunday January 6th.  Mr Phillips gave us a very interesting and information  presentation on the methodology and tools he uses to appraise antique art objects.  To help explain the art and science of appraising rare works of art,  he also brought along several very rare pictures to which he passed around the audience. It's a little intimidating holding something so old, fragile, valuable and beautiful. I felt privileged to even get close to them, especially after  learning about how  much work went into even the framing of the art work.
