Things are heating up like a summer in South Texas for TexasWax/San Antonio members. We held our July meeting at Inn on the Riverwalk, our lovely retreat in the heart of the city, where we welcomed new members Judith Guerra and Jan Velayas. We decided that we will draw up some goals for the group that will speak to where we would each like to be professionally in one year. We will address those goals in our business meetings, with information on such topics as the packing and shipping of encaustic art, websites, and working with charities. We will try to coordinate our meetings in artists' homes and studios with demos on a certain technique.
Don't forget that jpegs of up to three pieces of work are due Aug. 1 if you want to submit to the Global Swarming show. See TexasWax.com for the Prospectus. We are also encouraged to submit five 10x10x1 1/2 pieces to "Ten," our TexasWax fundraiser in November.
Congratulations to Steve for his great show and selling nine paintings on opening night alone! Congratulations to Hildegard for taking first place in Mixed Media in a Kerr County art show! And best wishes to Michelle on an upcoming show at the Austin airport. Lots of exciting things are happening for our members, and we want you to be part of them. Don't miss out on our next meeting Tuesday, Aug. 18 at 10:30 at the neighboring homes and studios of Debbie Houston and Joyce Howell in Kingsland. Directions will be sent in an e-mail closer to the meeting date.
