President’s Soap Box

president's soap boxA Good artist has less time than ideas.” Martin Kippenberger

Yep…that would be me and every other artist I know. It’s hard sometimes to come up with the time to create and live life whether that includes a job, family, pets, projects or any number of things we all have to do on a daily basis.

It’s even harder to find time when you constantly have someone asking you to give your time for something. Brace yourself…I’m about to ask you for your time…

CAG has been around longer than any other art guild in the area and that is because there has always been a select few people who stepped up and took on the responsibility and commitment to help organize shows, meetings and opportunities to learn. They didn’t get anything in return except an opportunity to be part of an ongoing organization that offers its members opportunities to show their work and learn new skills as well as a community of like minded folks to hang out with and discuss the world of art and whatever else comes to mind. Here it is…the big question! Will YOU step up and volunteer?  Will YOU join in keeping this wonderful organization moving forward and creating opportunities?

I want to thank Kay Juricek for stepping back into the Historian position this year to help with finishing touches to the book that is going to print! We still need folks to help with the Exhibit Committee to find new venues and opportunities to show our work. We also need someone to help with the membership outreach and the newsletter.

The newsletter is a great opportunity to learn some new computer skills for those with little to no experience and a piece of cake for someone with basic to moderate computer know-how. All it takes is a little  organization of pictures and words and voila!

The Membership Chair is a great opportunity for someone who likes talking to people and keeping track of information. This is also a good one for learning some basic database skills.

The Exhibit Committee Chair is the most time consuming of the positions available and needs someone willing to find, establish, schedule, follow through, fill out needed paperwork and cover any marketing for shows. And I probably forgot something, but you’ll learn as you go and this could be a great opportunity for someone looking to use this as a resume booster!

If you are interested in any of the volunteer positions available or if you want to volunteer to help as a support person for the various positions, please contact President@coloradoartistsguild.org
