  1. Hi everyone!
    I'm not sure if I can make it to the meeting tonight so I wanted to explain Art a Whirl ideas. I am a NEMMA member and will be participating in Art a Whirl for the 2nd year. My studio in my home will be open May 20 thru may 22nd. My studio is 12x15 and has a attached deck and courtyard to it. I am offering the Mosaic guild to share the space with me during art a whirl. All I ask is that the guild signs up for membership fee of 72.00 and a 25.00 additional picture cost for the catalog to get better advertising for it. The benefits are not having to staff it because I would do that and there would be no limit to what we could bring. I could also display large yard art on the deck & courtyard. I have a 8ft privacy fence so security wouldn't be a issue and I have security cameras too. I am also trying to line up some musicians to play there and possibly a few other artists.
    My studios name is Rotondos Hideaway Studio located at 1026 24th ave. ne. Mpls 55418, so you could list the guild there. I will be open all three days. Last year was sucessful!I would have everyone drop off items the sunday before. The deadline is Feb.14th to get into the catalog so I hope they can make a decision at the meeting tonight. So please anyone seeing this please bring this up at the meeting so a decision could be made on this before the deadline. Stacia our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
    Dannette I will drop my membership fee in the mail tonight if I can't make it. I hope to be there but if I don't,maybe you guys could decide if its in the budget this year.
    Thanks! Margie Rotondo
    Any questions?
