New Newsletter Format
If you are receiving this "Friends of BAG" newsletter, you are not a current member (unless you subscribed to the newsletter with more than one email address). Going forward, we will have a different newsletter for friends vs members. Friends are always welcome to visit our meetings and plein air gatherings! And of course you are welcome to join BAG if you feel called. We welcome artists age 18 and older working in all media. BAG is a wonderful venue for fun-loving, creative people who are also eager to share and to learn!

A membership in the Broomfield Art Guild allows artists to participate in monthly meetings and art demonstrations, and members in good standing are eligible to participate in scheduled art shows including monthly rotating exhibits and annual fine art shows. As a member of the Broomfield Art Guild, artists also receive a discount on workshops at the Louisville Art Association. One year of membership is $30 and includes your entire household. You can join online and pay your dues via PayPal, or you can bring your $30 check and application form to the November or December meetings and hand it to Bev or Kim T. 

Oct 12 Meeting Recap

About 15 members met at our new location, Presbyterian Church-Broomfield. The October meeting theme was, "Scary." View the variety of spooky art submitted for our meeting art theme gallery here on the BAG website.

We had a Trick-or-Treat Art Rummage with art materials and books provided by Val Roché and other members. Everyone got to browse and take home some supplies. Thanks to those who donated items!

We had a member discussion and consensus on 2022 plans. We decided to skip surveying members for priorities and to offer the same program in 2022 as we did in 2021. Members agreed that member participation and help are essential to determine the scope and success of our 2022 activities.

During the optional art-making session at the end of the meeting, Kim T and Judy McFadden played with watercolor pencils and crayons to paint roses from Judy’s neighbor’s garden.

Plein Air
Our final plein air outing for this year is Oct 21 at Josh’s Pond in west Broomfield (Lac Amora). We need 2022 plein air co-chairs and ideas for good locations. If you have a suggestion or would like to volunteer as co-chair, speak to Kim T.

November Board Elections
In addition to our member show reception, next meeting we will have our November board elections. At this time, there are no new candidates for executive board positions and the current board expects to be confirmed in November to serve for the 2022-2023 term. Camie Rigirozzi will step down as VP and be replaced by Perry Tyroler.

BAG Art Exhibitions

Members at the October meeting volunteered to fill chair positions for all our current exhibit spaces (BCC, Library, IPie, Mental Health Partners). Yay! and thank you! We will develop and send out a 2022 exhibits calendar to help with planning, coordination, and artist signups.

iPie Pizza exhibit space is hosting pieces by Camie Rigirozzi in October and Gale Simonson in November.

September to November, we have member artwork on display in the upstairs gallery at the Broomfield Community Center. We alternate showing in this space with the Broomfield Photo Club, so there will be more opportunity to sign up here in 2022.

We will also be showing art starting in January at the Broomfield Library. Stay tuned for more information.
