TKG Show First Fridays Artswalk: Mosaic  
Friday, August 5, 2022 4:30 PM Eastern Time (Eastern) - 8:00 PM Eastern Time (Eastern)

Mosaic: Cutting Edge work of multimedia Artists
Leslie Alfin and Karen Dolmanisth
4:30 online overview on Zoom 
5 to 8 p.m. in-person reception

The Guild of Berkshire Artists features member artists every month at
TKG Real Estate 137 North Street, Pittsfield, MA 01201.

To show as an artist: REGISTER HERE

First Fridays Artswalk is a monthly program in Downtown Pittsfield that connects businesses, galleries, artists, and the community in an effort to put on an “Artswalk” on the first Friday of every month from 5 to 8 pm.

Businesses and galleries join the program and agree to host a different artist in their venue every month. The Artswalk committee distributes a monthly brochure/map featuring all venues and artists for the current month, as well as coordinates a wide array of other advertising.

On the first Friday of the month, venues stay open during the 5 to 8 pm time frame and host their featured artist at a reception with food/drink provided by the artist. The Artswalk is self-guided; however, there is also a guided walking tour that takes participants through all of the venues for free!

Venues enjoy increased traffic to their locations by people on the Artswalk and the artists enjoy the opportunity to display and sell their work.

The community is encouraged to not only come out on the first Friday of the month, but ALL MONTH LONG to see the art!

Meeting at Eastern end of Park Square

First Saturdays, 9 - 11 am

Sessions are planned with short notice due to weather, stay tuned to the weekly members’ newsletter for updates. Free to all. Not-yet-members of the Guild welcome. Please follow any and all current local regulations regarding health or public safety.

 

Registration is available (recommended) if you would like an email with additional info, supply suggestions, and any last minute updates to that month’s date/time/location. Please contact Jill Gustavis at jillgustavisart@gmail.com with the subject line “urban sketching meetup” to register for that month’s event updates.

Positive Critique  
Tuesday, August 9, 2022 7:30 PM Eastern Time (Eastern) - 12:00 AM Eastern Time (Eastern)


Join Michele Caplan and other Members on second and fourth Tuesdays 7:30-8:30pm.
Share art work and get positive feedback.
 

To participate: Members should email Michele Caplan at mdwcap@gmail.com with one or two pieces of their work that they like, and one or two they are not finished with and want suggestions. Members will show only one piece of work at our meetings so we have time to really think about them and talk about them. The work will be shared on the screen, not by holding it up on zoom, so it can be seen well. Members should submit their work at least the day before to Michele’s gmail.

Please read below “Elements of Positive Critique”. A printable PDF version can be found (“Elements of Positive Critique pdf ) before the 7:30 p.m. meeting.

Meeting ID: 842 9410 6011
Password: 926317​
 

Artists are invited to a panel discussion led by Susan and David Honneus  on zoom BEST Practices (Professional/Development). What topics would you like to consider in future seminars and panel discussions? Bring your ideas!

Possible topics which have been proposed include:
“licensing our art”
“What happens to our art when our heirs get it?”
“how to ship large art works?”
“What did you learn The hard way and can share with other artists”
"to lease or not to lease"

Please share with us any answers you have to this question as probably most folks would be interested in what you learned.

One offering is “Color Interaction using Josef Alber's course"  (five of us met weekly  from January to June, learned a lot and plan to continue this fall and want to share this with other interested artists willing to work in small groups (we zoomed!).

What are YOUR ideas?

Positive Critique  
Tuesday, August 23, 2022 7:30 PM Eastern Time (Eastern) - 8:30 PM Eastern Time (Eastern)
On Zoom


Join Michele Caplan and other Members on second and fourth Tuesdays 7:30-8:30pm.
Share art work and get positive feedback.


To participate: Members should email Michele Caplan at mdwcap@gmail.com with one or two pieces of their work that they like, and one or two they are not finished with and want suggestions. Members will show only one piece of work at our meetings so we have time to really think about them and talk about them. The work will be shared on the screen, not by holding it up on zoom, so it can be seen well. Members should submit their work at least the day before to Michele’s gmail.
 

Please read below “Elements of Positive Critique”. A printable PDF version can be found (“Elements of Positive Critique pdf ) before the 7:30 p.m. meeting.
