ARTS IN APRIL AT AGNV
Subject: Arts in April (AiA), Art Gallery Napa Valley participation 2017
Event meeting last night with the Arts Council regarding the AiA event brought in over thirty Napa area artists, including three from AGNV.
After a 1 ? hour high energy brainstorming meeting, events are coalescing for a fantastic weekend of the arts in Napa during April 29-30. During April, every weekend there will be some form of the arts in a different community throughout the valley.
For now, Debbie Ames has taken the lead to organize our gallery artists. I will continue to represent the Art Association Board’s Educational Outreach and will be assisting Debbie Ames with marketing. Terry Kent has opted to take the year off.
We are looking for six or more artists from different mediums to be on this committee. Our first meeting will be next week to brainstorm what the gallery can do and what is happening in the other communities. Debbie is available next week between 11-4 and 7-9 most days. This is an AiA event committee only. Our main weekend is April 29-30, but we can do events the other weekends as well and even call April our Re Grand Opening month.
Anyone interested please email me and let me know what your preferred day and time for a short fun meeting. We have Arts Council’s publicity deadlines: Participation 1/25 and all press information regarding the gallery 2/9.
Minimum requirements are positive energy and a desire to showcase our beautiful gallery.
Looking forward to working together,
