The First Art Gallery of Olathe would like to personally invite you to an art reception on July 7th 6-9pm in honor of our Featured Artist John Burns.
John has been a valued member of First Art Gallery of Olathe for many years and a member of Olathe Visual Artists. He has been happy to be the treasurer for both organizations and one of 16 artists who display their wonderful art in the gallery. John is ready for a new chapter in his life, so he will be retiring from the gallery and will become an Emeritus member. Everyone at the gallery wishes him the best, we hope many of his friends and family come to help him celebrate a long and successful art career. The evening will include complimentary refreshments and live music provided by guitarist Jacob Weakland. The Olathe Visual Artists will also have a special display up all month as well.
The reception is being held at the First Art Gallery of Olathe 11951 Strang Line Rd. in the Olathe Station Shopping Center
Original Acrylic Paintings by John Burns
I did not start out as a child loving to paint or draw. I was 45 years old when after watching Bob Ross on TV, I decided to try my hand at it. It was not too bad for the first try, so I continued on. I attended three week long classes that Bob and his assistants provided. I became a Bob Ross certified instructor. I taught for about 8 years. I have been painting in oils but decided to try acrylics and have been painting in that medium ever since.

John will have his paintings specially priced to sell, since he will be moving on!
After years of faithful service as the OVA treasurer, John Burns is stepping down. (We’ll miss you John!) We will be electing a new treasurer at our next meeting.
Our president is sick today, so the monthly meeting tonight is canceled.
Next meeting we will have to hold elections for 2018.
If you have art at the gallery for the OVA show, you have until the first January reception to pick it up. (6th)
Someone should be at the gallery until 6:00pm if you still want to pick up your art today.
We hope Dave feels better soon.
This Thursday night’s meeting is cancelled per Dave. He has been working hard all month on the art fair with many of you, as you know and he has to cancel Thursday night. Contact him if you need more info. We will not meet in October. We will meet on November 30th to talk “fair” and hang art for the December OVA show. Thanks for all the hard work happening on many fronts of the art fair.
Don’t forget the Saturday night gallery reception on November 4th.
