Minutes of May 25, 2019 Meeting

Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Yarmouth

The meeting was called to order at 1:00 pm.

Minutes of the April 27, 2019 meeting were approved as read.

Treasurer’s report for the period from March 23 to May 25, 2019, opening balance of $3839.85 and total balance forward of $3508.70. This balance includes $474.58 which is the remaining grant money for the Garson Sisters project and $1863.24 which is the reserve for 4 Ateliers so the actual YAS balance is $1170.88.

New Business:

Sara Corning project: Margriet will send an e-mail to YAS members to determine how many will participate in this art show which will take place during the month of September. September 14-15 weekend will be the unveiling of the Sara Corning statue on the Museum property.

Old business:

Shows at the Museum: There is no change to the Fall shows at the Museum. First show is YAS members only, second show is YAS members with rug hookers and “Winter” is the theme.

Art Classes for Children: Virginia talked about this partnership between the AGNS and YAS which will take place from August 13 to 16, for 3 hours each morning. This will be for children aged 8 to 12, though this is flexible. Tentative revenues are $475 from Garson show reserve and $40 from each of 10 children participating for a total of $875.00. Expenses include instructor fees $600, rent for room at AGNS $150, extra art supplies $75, poster $50, for a total of $875.00. Virginia believes we should offer assistance to children to help cover the fee if needed, and that the activities should be limited to drawing, painting and print making. It was proposed and accepted that Kelliann be the art teacher and that other YAS members may be needed as volunteer helpers.

Art Work at Hospital: June 4 at 12:00 noon there will be a meeting with representatives of YAS, Conseil des arts de la Baie and the Par en Bas art group with committee members of the hospital art project.

YAS Networking: A networking group representing the 3 art groups has already met and all 3 are very interested in the art work at the hospital project. Participating artists should be members of one of the art groups and the art work can be any size and any type as long as it can be properly hung. The hospital will not be responsible for any loss of art work. Each art group will have a contact person whom the hospital will contact when an item is sold. The networking group will meet again on June 11 to discuss this further.

Other: Bill Curry advised that the Art by the Bay activity has been cancelled due to lack of interest. Cecil Day said there was one spot left in the cyanotype workshop with Bonnie Baker on June 6 and 8 if anyone is interested. June 14 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm will be the opening reception of Yarmouth Waterfront Gallery. Sue Amon said her solo show at the YARC has been changed to the month of July with an opening reception on July 5 from 6:00 till 8:00 pm.

Round table: We had an enjoyable round table talk.

Next meeting will be June 29 at 1 pm at the AGNS.
