Greetings everyone! Here we are in the dog days of winter. Hopefully everyone is hunkered down, bundled up and arting furiously to get ready for the Spring Membership Show. With the ups and downs of our lovely Wisconsin weather I hope people are taking advantage of the warmer days and getting out to partake in Gallery Night and Day, openings and receptions, and fun ArtsEco events.
Speaking of which... (great segue!) MATA will be featured at an ArtsEco event on February 8th from 5-8pm at the UWM alumni house on Kenwood Ave. We will be a part of their wellness night, getting well and making art. We have a jewelry station set up, creating earrings, pendants, etc., from aluminum cans. Looking forward to seeing you join us for some good eats and good treats, treating yourself to a little arting, networking, and massages afterward.
MATA’s annual President’s gathering is also coming up February 4th. This is a nice opportunity for current board members to get a sense of the MATA legacy and for past leaders to reconnect. Thanks to Chuck Wickler for hosting, we look forward to a relaxing afternoon.
Our membership show is fast approaching. I can’t believe how fast this year is flying by. We are happy to be back at the very public and very welcoming Central Library in down town Milwaukee. Such a beautiful space to exhibit our work. We will be sending out the invite soon, so hopefully everyone has some great art up their sleeves to turn out for this show. Call on your muses, gather your supplies, and let the arting begin!
