August 2014

Presidents Message

In an earlier Collagraph I told you that we would be discontinuing our monthly artist demonstrations after 2014. The monthly demos provided the timing for a monthly Stockton Art League member business meeting as required in our Bylaws. We must now amend the Bylaws to make a new provision for the timing for SAL business meetings.

Your Board of Directors has approved an amendment to the Bylaws which calls for member business meetings two times per year, December and June. At the December meeting members will be asked to elect officers and to approve the SAL operating budget for the next calendar year. Other proposed changes to the Bylaws make the various provisions of the Bylaws function with the proposed change to the business meetings.

Under the provisions of the existing Bylaws, members must vote to approve any changes to the Bylaws at a regular monthly meeting. That vote will take place on August 14 prior to the demonstrations by Charlene Martin. The meeting will begin at 6:00pm and the demo will follow. Copies of the proposed Amendment to The Bylaws are available at the gallery. Please pick up a copy and look it over.

We encourage all members to attend the meeting. If there are any other subjects that you would like to discuss at the meeting, please contact any board member and ask that it be added to the agenda.

The next Board of Directors meeting will be on Wednesday August 6th, 2014 at 10am. Members are welcome to attend all board meetings and to express opinions and offer ideas.

Your President,

Pat Price

Charlene Martin

Demo Artist of the Month - Charlene Martin

Photography Transfer Process

Charlene Martine started studying fine art photography in 2010. Environmental portraiture is a reoccurring theme. Forgotten or overlooked places and objects are also common subjects in her work. Searching for a more handson approach to photography, she started experimenting with alternative methods. Cameraless processes as well as manipulating the digitally created image into a handmade object are some of the new directions she has been exploring.

Ms. Martin will be demonstrating a few of the transfer processes she has been using. Both ink Jet Transparency Film and Toner/Laser Photocopies can be transferred to a number of surfaces using common products found at grocery, hardware and art supply stores. These techniques can be used to transform your photograph into a unique art work or a component for Mixed Media art work.

Ms. Martin is a member of the Stockton Art League, Lodi Community Art Center, Stockton Camera Club and the Central Valley Clickers.

58th Haggin Museum SAL Juried Show Due To Open

Thursday, August 7 is the opening of our 58th Haggin Museum Juried Show. A reception for the artists and SAL members will be from 6 - 8pm at The Haggin Museum. Members are encouraged to attend and help support one of our biggest events.

Demo Coordinator Needed

The gallery is looking for a new demo artist coordinator. Since the artists are in place for the rest of 2014, all that is needed is someone to volunteer about two hours a month arranging and coordinating monthly demonstrations, setting up and taking down chairs, and making coffee for the break. Contact Maria Flumiani at 603-2375 if you are interested in filling this position.

Shop for a Cause at Macy's

On August 23, SAL members can take advantage of "Shop for a cause at Macy’s". Passes may be purchased now at gallery front counter from a staffer for $5 each. This is a fundraiser for the SAL. Each $5 goes to the gallery. Use your pass to get 25% off on all purchases. They can be used at any Macy’s stores. Limited exclusions apply and are listed on the pass.

This is the second year that SAL has participated in this fundraiser

Artist of the Month - San Joaquin Potters Guild

Reception • August 9th • 4-7:00pm

SJ Potters Guild

Ceramic & Glass Art

A non-profit organization, the San Joaquin Potters Guild was founded in 1991 by a small group of clay artists who were interested in the camaraderie and inspiration that could be gained by association with other ceramic artists. Over the years the guild has grown and now includes glass artists.

A friendly, diverse and active group, the San Joaquin Potters Guild is committed to maintaining high standards of craftsmanship and design in clay and glass. The organization encourages innovation and professional growth in technical skills and aesthetics; promotes public appreciation and understanding of ceramic and glass art; and provides a medium for exchange of ideas and concerns within the field.

The members of the San Joaquin Potters Guild represent artists in San Joaquin and surrounding counties (Tuolumne, Calaveras, Mariposa, Stanislaus, Sacramento, Amador and Contra Costa). New members are welcome and are not limited to these counties. We welcome clay and glass artists from throughout Northern California.

New SAL gallery guidelines for membership

1. Each individual/artist must be a member of the Stockton Art League, and pay one of the existing membership dues levels. Minimum dues are $35/year.

2. Each member may enter up to 4 pieces of their original art work in show (every 2 months). Work must be framed (unless the canvas sides are painted as part of the work) and have a wire hanger.

3. Art work shall be recent work done within the last 4 years. All art work must be for sale. Once submitted, work will remain for the duration of the show, unless it is sold. It may then be replaced without additional fee. Displays may not be changed nor entered after show is hung without consulting Aleen, Gallery Director.

4. There is a $5.00 charge for each painting entry into 2 month show. Exceptions are as follows:

5. There will be a new exhibit approximately every 60 days. Art work may be re-entered every 6 months. Gallery receives 30% commission on all sold work. Schedule is published in the Collagraph Newsletter.

6. Art work will be accepted at the discretion of the Gallery Director. Any unresolved issues will be referred to the Board of Directors for review.

7. When exhibiting their art in Gallery, member is required to staff a minimum of 6 hours per month for each month their work is shown. Shifts are usually 3 hours twice a month, or one 6 hour shift - depending on member preference. If member is unable to staff at their scheduled time/date, it is their responsibility to find a replacement. If a replacement cannot be found, please notify the Gallery Director at least 24 hours in advance.

8. At time of entry into 2 month show, a calendar will be available for staffing signup. 9. For new members who have a working, full-time paid position of at least 5 days, OR a medical problem that would prevent staffing, the bi-monthly entry fee will be $7.00 per painting (four maximum) with 40% commission to the gallery on each piece sold.

10. Please submit any concerns about the Gallery in writing to Dick Massa, Director of the Gallery.
