Art Association gears up for spring show

By Alice Liles

The Muleshoe Art Association met Tuesday, April 3rd for their monthly meeting and to finalize plans for the upcoming spring art show to be held April 9th through the 13th at the AimBank meeting room.

President Martha Hunnicutt opened the meeting with a reading of the minutes from March 13 by secretary Alice Liles. Liles then called roll with eleven members present. Members who attended the photography workshop held on Friday and Saturday, March 30-31st led by Wes Underwood of Lubbock reported that the workshop was fun and instructional, albeit a tad cold early Saturday morning when the group traveled to the Muleshoe Wildlife Refuge to practice the skills they had been taught the night before.

A discussion of work assignments and the schedule for the upcoming show followed and all members were encouraged to be on hand to set up, serve as greeters, provide refreshments, and take down the show. Entries will be accepted Monday, April 9th, judging will be Tuesday morning with presentation of winners to follow that afternoon at 1:30, and the public is invited to attend. Art work will remain on display to the public during banking hours on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Friday entries can also be picked up by their owners.

The treasurer’s report was given by Sandra Chancey, and Melba Bratcher updated members on art work displayed at the library and the Muleshoe hospital. Judy Gambill work will be in the library through the month of April and several members’ work continues to be on display at the hospital.

Members were encouraged to attend the art show and reception on April 9th at the Clovis Community College’s Eula Mae Edwards Museum as several Muleshoe members have work on display there.

President Hunnicutt requested that we move the May meeting from that month to later in April and members agreed on meeting for the last time this year on April 24th. That meeting will still be held at the library at 2 p.m.

The meeting was adjourned and members enjoyed refreshments provided by Ann Johnson. The scholarship committee then met later at Sandi Chitwood’s house to determine the winner of this year’s art association scholarship.
