WELCOME to 2017-2018
EACH PAINTING HAS ITS OWN WAY OF EVOLVING…
WHEN THE PAINTING IS FINISHED… THE SUBJECT REVEALS ITSELF.
Hello fellow artists,
Here I am again and very happy to be your President. I not only want to do everything for the “good of the guild” but as always see the “good of the guild."
I look forward to seeing familiar faces every Wednesday and the many members throughout the year. To my knowledge, no other artistic group gathers together such as we do.
Kay Burns has an outstanding line-up for our workshops this year; Jackie Pratt has enlisted awesome artists for our paint-a-long, and Kay and I have helped out Terri Smith with some very interesting Monday night demos...I thank them ahead of time, also Irene Chandler for her help with Monday night demos; it really does take a village to keep us going, and a village we have.
The Nampa Art Guild prides itself on the variety of artists we have, from beginners, intermediates, advanced and professionals, as diversified in people as the mediums they use. We thrive on creativity bringing new and innovative ideas to the canvas, to the paper...WE ARE THE NAMPA ART GUILD.
Let’s all look forward to another awesome Spring Celebration in May at the Nampa Public Library. It's a beautiful place and an outstanding space. We are in a transitional time working towards a 2018 October Fall Show. We are in the business of moving forward and we will take this time to plan and succeed, so please anticipate with enthusiasm, with good intentions, powerful spirits and artful hands as we delve into new adventures and maintain the old.
ALL THE ARTS WE PRACTICE ARE APPRENTICESHIP...“THE BIG ART IS OUR LIFE"
I expect a masterpiece from each of you;
I hope you expect the same from me.

I do it for you, and I like making the day as good as possible. Thank you for letting me serve.
President, Nampa Art Guild
