SAVE THE DATE: May 12, 2018 for the AE Annual Business Meeting & Brunch

Spring is here and it's time for our annual business meeting. Be sure to put May 12th at 10:00 am on your calendar. We will meet at the MainLine Unitarian Church. Pre-registration is required if you choose to have our traditional light lunch with us. After a brief business meeting where we will vote on the Board Members and bring up any questions or ideas for Artists Equity, now and in the future. Then, at 11:15 we have a special speaker. Stuart Shils, who many of you know as a painting instructor at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Stuart will talk about learning to make art.

Reaching for a Flock of Canaries.

"I often tell young students at the school where I teach, that we are out here to learn how to make art.  Learning how to make art isn't really possible and might be somewhat disingenuous. What we are here for is the acquisition of a perceptual and conceptual skill set to enable an increasingly acute sense of presence and alertness from which we shape an interpretive response and that response, to being alive, is what we call art." ~Stuart Shils

Stuart will show some of his art and how he is currently interpreting what he perceives through collage.

Cost for the brunch is $12.00. To purchase a brunch ticket click the button below.
