Filed under: Meetings on January 16, 2015 2:51 am

DATE: January 24, 2015
TIME: 1:30 p.m. (1:15 p.m. if competing)
LOCATION: First Congregational Church at 1980 Hamilton Avenue, San Jose

A happy and creative new year to you all. 2015 promises to be an exciting year for CAG, starting with this month’s meeting.

Our demonstrator, Michael Rogan, will demonstrate techniques and materials that may be new to many of us (for example, water soluble graphite and conté). He is an extremely accomplished artist who works in a wide variety of mediums with a passion for figure drawing. You won’t want to miss this one. Nothing inspires creativity or evokes new artistic directions better than seeing and trying a new medium.

Remember to bring your favorite photos to February’s meeting. We’ll be choosing two to serve as inspiration for our next club art project.

Please take some time this month, check your schedules and commitments, and consider running for a CAG office. In February we’ll be taking nominations. If you have questions about a specific office (e.g., the duties, amount of work, time or commitment requested to fulfill the position) current officers are happy to give you all the details.

Again, happy new year everyone!

Barbara Weiss, President

We had an unexpected guest join us in the festivities: Alan Zisser, Chairman of the Campbell Civic Improvement Commission (CCIC). Alan provided a brief talk about the civic project under way by the City of Campbell that involves the painting of the City’s utility boxes by creative artists in our community.
