President's Message

Lets Rodeo!

Posted by Clovis Art Guild California on Friday, March 28, 2014 Under: President's message

The Old West Show is coming up fast and we are going to need a lot of assistance from our members.  This year will be the 100th year anniversary of the Rodeo and the Rodeo Association is going to begin sponsoring the prize for the 1st place winner of the Old West category once again.  Another piece of good news is this year we are on the calendar the Rodeo Assoc. sent to the Fresno Bee. Watch for announcements of our show also on the community calendars of TV stations KMPH (26) and COZY (7.2). Additionally, since the Rodeo Association will be holding their banquet at the Veteran’s this year, we will be staying open later on Saturday night so they can come in and see the show. This is a wonderful opportunity to remind the movers and shakers in Clovis of our fabulous art!

Rodeo artists Claudia Fletcher (who did the poster for the rodeo for the past several years) and Jim Stuckenberg (who did that wonderful sculpture in front of the rodeo grounds) will have a special display of their art during the show.

We are going to need all of our members to sign up to help with the show and to sit during show hours. Since Alice will have had surgery just before the show, Jackie McCoy will be assisting her to write receipts for entries. This means we desperately need someone to step up and persuade all the artists entering the show to sit at least once. Thursday, we need members to help log in the entries and runners to put the art in categories. On Friday morning we will need runners to help set out the art for our judge, and then on Friday Afternoon, we need strong, able-bodied help to set up the standards and hang the show. On Wednesday, is our artist reception and award ceremony, so please sign up to bring in finger foods and come to the reception! Invite your family, friends and customers to see your art! Finally, on Sunday afternoon we are going to need more able-bodied artists to assist in taking down the show. Our art show will only be as good as the support you give and I know I can count on our members to step up and volunteer.
