February 2016

Presidents Message

It is hard to believe hat February is already here. Hopefully, our New Year resolutions are now firmly in place and successfully being accomplished. For the Stockton Art League one of these resolutions is that we increase active membership and in a perfect world, build visibility and sales for the Elsie May Goodwin Gallery. With the dedication of your board of directors, we see this happening in many ways; including actively increasing our presence on the Internet and in social media. All members can be a part of this by simply “liking” our Facebook page and visiting it frequently for current information about what is going on at SAL.

I am pleased to introduce our newest member of the board, Mary Little. Many of you may know Mary as part of the “Tuesday Group.” She brings a multitude of talents to the board including a background in education and public relations skills. Mary has already undertaken a project to build a children’s program for SAL, and we look forward to its implementation. We will be providing more information on this program as it is rolled out.

This month we feature Richard Atchison as our artist of the month. Richard was the winner of the Best of Show award at last year’s juried show. Please make a point of attending the 2nd Saturday artist reception February 13th and say hello to Richard. Also happening this month is demo artist Jun Jamosmos. On Thursday, February 11th, Jun will use acrylic to demonstrate his talent with light and shadow.

Lastly, what does art look like in the 21st century? SAL will begin this discussion at the first event celebrating our 80th anniversary. Please read further for more information and save March 5th for your participation!

The next Board of Directors meeting will be on Wednesday Faebruary 3rd, 2016 at 10am. Members are welcome to attend all board meetings and to express opinions and offer ideas.

Your President,

Renee Koon

Artist of the Month - Richard Atchison

Reception • February 13th • 4-7:00pm

Richard Atchison

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, the artist’s entire life revolved in and around the art world. Richard could never image doing anything else. The addiction to draw pictures started in Kindergarten and never stopped.

After receiving a BFA degree in advertising and design, he immediately went to New York City and started his career in the graphic arts field.

Several years later, he returned to California and began 30+ years of working full time for advertising agencies in San Francisco and Stockton as a graphic designer, illustrator and art director.

Richard’s paintings are imaginary and he does not specialize in any particular subject. His artwork has been collected across the United States, including the California State Library Collection and in England. He has been the recipient of many awards in Advertising and Design both locally and nationally.

Visual Arts in the 21st Century? Let’s talk!

Your planning committee is pleased to announce SAL’s first 80th Anniversary Event, an interactive experience at The Haggin Museum, from 2-3:30 on March 5 (a FREE first Saturday event).

We are assembling a panel of art professionals to present a range of views, and elicit audience input, about a number of issues in several broad categories:

How is the concept of “fine” art evolving?

How has the market for art changed?

How should we evaluate the artistic works we see?

Panelists will include arts experts from local institutions (the Haggin, Pacific and Delta) and working artists (self-employed cartoonists and animators, illustrators, teachers). Your thoughts on additional questions related to these issues that you’d like the panel to address can be sent to Kristen Rinaker: teamjli@live.com

This participatory event is open to all who are interested in he visual arts. We hope all SAL members will join us, as well as our many friends from Lodi, Tracy, Art Expressions and other local arts organiza-tions, to learn and to share insights with other arts supporters, students and the community.

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.
