Wisconsin Visual Artist Guild  April 25 2019 Meeting

    The next meeting of the Wisconsin Visual Artist Guild will be on Thursday, April 25th
Meetings are held in the first floor conference room at Marshfield Clinic - Weston Center, 3501 Cranberry Blvd, Weston, WI.

    At the last meeting several people said they thought the meetings would be more interesting if we could present short demos at the meetings.  Jackie Lescher has volunteered to give a short presentation on adding texture or collage to your acrylic paintings.

During the business part of the meeting we will be selecting the artist(s) who will be featured artist for the summer show which will be hung the first week in June. Definition of what it means to be a featured artist will also be discussed and refined so we can post the information on the WVAG blog.

If you have other issues you would like to discuss at the April meeting please add comments to this post on the WVAG Blog. Thank you
