April Meeting Minutes

We met at Judy Sell's house on April 13. - Thanks, Judy.

Sculpture Demo
Judy gave us a demonstration of how to sculpture a bench (or whatever) using the method that Wooterina De Raad teaches.  This entails wrapping the object in wire mesh and then covering it with mortar prior to applying the tesserae.

Haiti Project
Susan updated everyone on th project.  Many projects are done and turned in. Judy and Gil both agreed to do two squares. - This brings the project to 24 squares - 24 square feet. - Phenomenal. - We would like to install the quilt in Haiti in the first quarter of 2012, but it depends on whether the new children's hospital is far enough along in construction by that time.  We'll keep you posted.

Edina Art Center Show
Susan handed out a "poop sheet" for the show which lists the dates to remember as well as facts you need to know about the show.  This sheet will be emailed to all members at a later time. There's no way to attach it to this blog. Judy Sell will be designing the postcards.  Julie Reeve may provide some signage for the Haiti Project once we know what we need.

2012 Show
Susan will help Gil find a venue for our 2012 show.

Concrete Mosaic Sculpture Garden Tour
Members who were present were polled to find out if there's interest in having a special event this summer. The event would be a garden tour of Wouterina De Raad's Concrete Mosaic Garden. Everyone present was very interested in doing this.  The garden is located in Beldenville, WI which is a 45 minute drive from downtown St. Paul.  Susan will contact the garden to see if we can reserve the date of July 16 for our tour.  We must have a minimum of 10 participants for the garden to open for us.
