We need your E to the 3rd Degree

Greetings Everyone! I'm very happy with how things have been going in general, even though we are a long way from where I'd like us to be. We've seen new faces and new interest over the past few meetings and we are starting to connect with other groups and organizations. The potential for greatness is here and it is up to us to harness it!

Lots of opportunities for involvement and now is the time to really step up so you can be in on things from the start. Members of DivaNation, an all female jazz vocalist and composer group, have reached out and are planning on joining forces. They are bringing experience, enthusiasm, and energy (E to the 3rd Degree)!

PLEASE send an email to and let me know your interest/availability in any of the following (see minutes below too):

1. DivaNation Workshopping for collaboration
2. Attending a studio visit to make clay bunnies on a Wednesday evening (or another day)
3. EXHIBITION committee, where you'd help plan/organize upcoming exhibitions
Thank you! Looking forward to our meeting next weekend on the 21st plus the Red Sand Project group action!
