The LCVA MOVE...
The LCVA Board has installed “Let It Rain Art”, in our new Croswell space. Over 35 artists brought work for our first exhibition.
Due to the amount of work and space available we hung two rather than three of each members work. The show and space look great, although we are still waiting for our new showcase to be delivered and track lights to be installed any day now. All else is done.
Dues and membership...
We will have a “welcome home” celebratory meeting on Sunday May 16 at 4pm in the new gallery. We'll talk about meeting times and future shows.
We want remind every one to send in their dues, as we will be paying rent to the Croswell and our main income is membership dues.
You should have received an invoice for your dues in the last month, if you did not contact treasurer, Mike Jacobitz at email@example.com
Also, on the 16th bring your planners as we will have sign up for the one job per year that all members will contribute to keep the LCVA running. It is no secret that in the past we had trouble with too few doing the work for many. We want to emulate the adage, “many hands make light work” to avoid burning out good, contributing members.
Jobs vary from show installation and deinstallation and gallery prep to receptions, making labels for identifying works, to publicity, card design and mailing. If you weren’t at the meeting last spring we will have information available about what each job entails with support contact with members who are well familiar what needs to be done for each task.
We will also look ahead and begin planning for Art-A-Licious, our fundraiser and our first sales gallery show. Come ready to make a commitment to the success of the LCVA.

We really need someone to be the point person for this reception.
After a decade of organizing almost every reception we've had, Marjorie would like to "retire" (and she will be up north for this one). Thank you, thank you, Marjorie, for doing this all these years!
She has graciously shared her list of folks who can be counted on to donate, so this only requires some emailing and/or phone calls and being at the gallery at 4 pm on Aug. 21st to set up. Members are gracious about donating--we have a bunch of cooks and wine afficianados in this group--and about helping with clean up/pack up.
The Sitters' Schedule has been updated and is visible in the post below this one (It's Alive!). We have some near term gaps--please look and see if you can help. For this show, I'm happy to update and correct the blog. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
