LSAG: Is YOUR Fall Show on the LSAG Calendar?

.

League Leadership, 

With the summer heat still very present, the fall season may seem far and away right now.  Still it is time to send us your fall show dates as well as your judges so that we may put them on the website calendar.  For best results, send in your show info for the website as soon as possible.  

This is also a reminder of the 2 other avenues of communication you need to consider for any upcoming show-- the newsletter and database.

To be included on the WEBSITE show schedule, send your LEAGUE, DATE, & JUDGE to lsagconnect@gmail.com.

For NEWSLETTER advertisements, send your post as you wish it to appear to lsagannouncements@gmail.com by Saturday noon of the weekend before you want it sent.  The newsletter goes out on a Wednesday morning.  The How to Post page is available on the website for tips.  We may not be able to turn your paragraph into an advertisement; this is the responsibility of the Publicity Chair for your league.  Please adjust your announcement how you wish it to appear before sending to the Newsletter Editor.  Posts that look more like an invitation are more likely to be read than a lengthy paragraph.  Any advertisement for your show should begin about a month in advance of your show registration deadline.     

Your LEAGUE Database Manager is responsible for entering details of your show in the DATABASE.  This information includes DATE, LOCATION, & JUDGE.   
Please use this format:  Your league's letters / Fall or Spring / All shows in the database should be OPEN shows / Show- / Judge's last name 
Example:  ABC Fall Open Show- Jackson    Note--All LSAG shows are art shows, so this is not a needed distinction.
Questions about the database should be directed first to the 2nd VP Shows/ Database, Stephanie, at   lsagvpshows@gmail.com .  As a backup, you may contact the Database Asst. listed on the Leadership page under About Us.

Please NOTE:  If you have entered your show in the database, then you should also send it in to the calendar of the website.  See above.

Thanks!

CAL: Carrie Allbritton Workshop--Sept 1-2


Carrie Allbritton
Mixed Media
Abstract/Non-objective


Ever wonder what makes an abstract/non-objective painting an award winner? Why do some paintings compel you to look closer and others do not? It is not just a case of putting texture or pretty colors on your paper or canvas; it is in knowing the rules of design and how to use them more effectively. It's knowing how to use color and texture to its best advantage and having the confidence to move forward.
With Carrie's careful guidance and demonstrations, you will complete a painting a day, any size, on any surface.

August 31, September 1 & 2 
  9am- 4:30 pm
Workshop Fee: $200

CAL: Carol Nelson Workshop--Oct 17-20


FOUR FULL DAYS of mixed media creating with 

Carol Nelson
Experiments in Mixed Media





This four day workshop will feature a series of projects in which we will explore mixed media techniques which Carol uses in her paintings. Students can expect to complete one or more paintings per day

Carol's approach to mixed media works for both realism and abstraction.  You will learn about a variety of materials and techniques, such as use and preparation of Tyvek, metals and metal foils, embossed foils, combusted origami foil, rusted iron paint, making your own unique collage papers, making unique focal medallions using air dry clay, inexpensive substitutes for pricey art materials, and much more.

 Carol will also discuss abstract composition and color theory, various kinds of supports, how to attach various collage elements, and presentation options for a finished piece.

The fourth day will be Carol's abstracted trees. There will be a $15 materials fee due the first day of class.

Prepare to Take the Next Step In Your Art Career


Do you feel like your art career is stuck in a rut? Are your art sales flat or nonexistent? Are you unsure of what you should do next in your career? Do you feel like your work is ready to show in galleries but feel unprepared to present your work to gallery owners?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, I would like to invite you to join me for the Starving to Successful Workshop. I've been in the gallery business since 1992, and I founded Xanadu Gallery in 2001.

Over the years I've had the opportunity to see many artists approach my gallery for representation. Many of these artists were poorly prepared and unsuccessful in securing representation.

I've tried to help as many artists as I could to improve their presentation and professionalism.
These experiences have lead me to create this workshop. Before you approach galleries, I want you to be fully prepared and to present yourself as a professional artist.

The Starving to Successful Workshop will provide you with a clear plan you can follow to prepare to approach galleries, and will give you concrete steps that you can begin implementing today.

This is a recorded workshop, so even if you can't watch the whole workshop right away, you can return and watch the recording at any time.
