Art Tag Subject: FIRE
Art Tag is a way to explore new topics, break through artist block, try new ways of art-making, and be inspired by other artists -- all within a selected theme and sharing process. If you would like to join the next round, come to either the May 17 or 18 meeting so that you can see works that have been created and learn the rules of the game. Those who have not participated before must come to one of these meetings so that they understand how the game is played. Participating in Art Tag means creating three new works around a theme the participants select.
Saturday Group: Ariella Seidenberg, Jacquie Rubinstein, Zoe Thiele-Seidenberg, Judy Johnson-Williams, Elizabeth Addison, Deborah Green, Hunches, Sally Stewart, Anne Shulenberger, Salma Arastu, Kelly Hammargren, Sam Dabney.

2014 Board Retreat at Pescadero
The board had a wonderful retreat at Irma Velasquez's Pescadero ranch on January 6. We reviewed our 2013 goals, which amazingly were exceeded in many ways. We discussed ways to nurture membership growth, build more involvement, and nurture our chapter community. We also have some exciting goals for 2014 that involve a workshop day at Djerassi, applying for the SOMArts curatorial grant in the Fall, engaging collectors, developing our PR bench strength and many more.
