We decided that we would sponsor the Emerging Artists tent and also the Pleine Aire program. The club as a whole will work with the emerging artists and Rob Knudsen and John Burns will work together to coordinate the Pleine Aire program. We will inform the DOAF people that we will again sponsor this in order to get our tents and spaces free. (Hopefully) We decided that we would have separate tents but would be together instead of being spread out. We decided that we would need probably 5 tents this year for our club plus a 10 X 20 for the emerging artists and a 10 x 20 for the Pleine Aire event.
We also decided to hold a art show at the First Art Gallery of Olathe on May 4th from 11:00am to 9:00 pm coinciding with the Gallery’s First Saturday reception on that day.
Rob is making up name tags for us. He showed us an example and everyone agreed that they would work.
Everyone should bring their painting challenge of the Old Mill at Olathe Lake to the meeting next month.
It looks like we will be participating in the Unity Village exhibit in November and/or December.
Their seems to be some confusion as to whether or not we will be able to show at the KU Med Center.

Note: The First Art Gallery show has been moved to June 1st.
