JOSH CLARE - THE HEART OF LANDSCAPE PAINTING
Members $350; Non-members $390 All levels welcome
This three day workshop will focus on outdoor sketches, which are
fundamental to good landscape painting. The instructor will open each day
with a lecture and demonstration after which students will paint and receive
individual critiques of their work. The class will focus on learning to see like
an artist, emphasizing he fundamental principals necessary to quickly and
accurately capture the beauty of nature when painting outdoors. Among topics
covered will be: values, hue, saturation, drawing, edges, design, and paint
application. We will also discuss artistic style, look at the work of a variety of
different artists, and consider the importance of painting from life as a means to
developing one’s own individual voice.

BECKY JOY - OIL OR ACRYLIC
Members $400; Non-members $430 All levels welcome
Attention will be focused on learning to see form rather than detail, and masses
as opposed to lines. Focus will also be on how to accurately simplify the colors
and values of the main shapes. Techniques designed to complete “Alla Prima”
paintings. At the end of the workshop I will have a critique session, assessing each
student and the direction and problems that each individual needs to focus on
when they leave the workshop. Each student is to bring their own photos for their
paintings. I will help to simplify the photo and to make it an effective painting.

WET & WILD! Paint vibrant water scenes in Brilliant Color
Watercolor, Oil, Acrylic
Members $180; Non-members $200 All levels welcome
Learn how to make water look wet, reflective and splashy! With stunning waterfall or
intimate woodsy creek as your model, study water in motion and glass reflection. Learn
to use “acrylic underpinnings” to set the stage for vibrant colors in your “waterscape”
paintings. This technique is featured in her North Light Book, Watercolor Unleased (2013)
- and the same technique used for oil and acrylic, is the subject of her North Light Book
Brilliant Color (2009).

BOD Mtg Synopsis
GALLERY COMMITTEE QUESTIONS FOR
MEMBERS
The original intent of the Spotlight Room was
to highlight cutting edge design, methods and
ideas, and to feature artists from out of the
area in hopes of stimulating creativity among
our members and the public. We seem to have
strayed away from this original philosophy.
The Gallery Committee wants to know what
you would like to see in the Spotlight Room
and how we should use this space. When
you’re in the Gallery, let Michael Gallagher,
our Gallery Manager know your ideas, talk
to an Executive Board member, or a Gallery
Committee member. Let us know your thoughts.
If you want, just email me your thoughts at
[email protected]
The Guild and Gallery is for the betterment of
its members. We might not be able to hit the
mark 100% of the time, but we will try.
Thanks, Vivian Farmer, President
Welcome New
Members!!!

September 2014 Gallery BOD Mtg:
• Spotlight Room Wall Repair – the walls are in bad need of repair or
replacement due to the “spongy” condition after numerous show hangings.
Bob also suggested that during the Christmas holidays [Dec 25-Jan 4] he and
Michael G. could do the work themselves as they have the expertise to do the
work. The Board deferred to Bob to take care of the repairs.
• Leather Show – Bob stated the leather trade show schedule is Friday-Sunday,
February 27th – March 1st. Discussion of specifics followed: (a) would the
Gallery show need to be taken down early to accommodate the trade show
as this would upset the membership like last year? Barbara C. later suggested
the Gallery Show could be combined with the leather show and solve that
problem (b) more leather works displayed should be “for sale” items (c) the
leather show representatives should be responsible for marketing to the public
that MAG is the host (c) perhaps the two meeting rooms could be used for the
leather show (d) we need a specific contract with the leather show producers.
DECISION: the Board did not approve the leather show as yet until we view a
needed contract. It was decided Bob will bring specifics about these topics to
the November Board meeting.
September 2014 Guild BOD Mtg:
• Special Presentation: Bridgette Flagherty and John McLoughlin from Cellar
433 addressed the Board. This is the winery group that organized the wine
garden at the May Courthouse Show this year. They are concerned about
distributors and outsiders (other than AZ wine growers) entering the summer
festivals as they believe it’s important to promote our own AZ growers. They
also spoke of sales and fundraising ideas. It was stated Cellar 433 successfully
brought eight wineries to our last show. They want to know ASAP if we will
contract with them again for 2015 as their show schedule fills quickly. The
Board did agree that we will contract with Cellar 433 for our next show.
• Projector/Bulbs – there had been an offer to MAG for a used projector. Bob
stated that this item has been SOLD and not available any longer. Gail Holl is
looking for one for demos, etc. Stuart B. suggested we rent the item and Bob
said we could find a rental at a reasonable price.
• Hand Held Wireless Mic – Cost is $320 from CAM Electronics but we agreed
this is too expensive and we will keep looking for one. Pam D. pointed out
that hand-held mics are basically obsolete as people like their hands free
during presentations.
• Update: Membership Lists – Bob discussed the following: (a) computer
problem -ACCESS is not working (b) Our IT person is working on the
infrastructure and some of it is working now, but some data was lost (c) we
WILL have a current membership list in time for election night on October
24th (d) office computers are not compatible with each other, but we are
working on it. (e) Cathy G. discussed benefits of placing members’ names
ONLY on our website. It can then be, upon request to Cathy, “linked” to the
members own website.
• Holiday Closures: the Guild and the Gallery will be closed for Christmas from
December 25 – January 4. Intake for the first show of 2015 will be Monday,
January 5th.
• Update: October elections – Barbara gave a review of the procedures for
processing ballots on election night. We have chosen the three counters: Bob
Deputy, Leon Jones, and Deanne Brewster. We may also need an extra person
as we expect a large volume of ballots and this year with so many candidates,
it will be complicated. Barbara, as the Secretary, per our By-laws will remain
as the “overseer” of the ballot results.
• Christmas Bazaar – The Bazaar is scheduled for December 6-7 and we will
need staffing. Mary S. will organize this event.
• Studio Tour Results – Bob reported that the Gallery did “OK” with the Studio
Tour showing some nice sales.

Workshop Memorable Moments...
Joe Robertson, Scratchboard, September 16 & 17
I took Joe Robertson’s Scratchboard workshop Sept 16 & 17. It was a GREAT class. I have never done scratchboard before so was interested in broadening my artistic horizons... Joe is an incredible artist and great instructor!
I am attaching a photo of my finished project. I can’t believe my “raccoon” turned out as well as it did!
