Minutes: LOUISVILLE CLAY MEETING: March 22, 2011


LOCATION: University of Louisville Ceramic Studio

AGENDA:  'The Artist's Critique' - a discussion by Pam Korte and Gwen Heffner


MEETINGS:  We now have only 4 meetings a year. The remainder for the year are:
Thursday, June 16, 7:00 pm - Experienced jurors will discuss what goes on behind the scenes when assessing submissions and we hope to also get a someone to discuss taking photographs of your own work.
Wednesday, Sept. 16, 7:00 pm - 7-8 of our professional potters in the group will demonstrate their particular approach to the bottle form.
Tuesday, Dec. 6, 7:00 pm - Christmas Party
All of our meetings are in preparation for a Bourbon Bottle Show in 2012.

WORKSHOPS:

SEBASTIAN MOH will be giving a workshop at University of Louisville on Sunday, March 27th from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (free)



WAYNE FERGUSON will give his Whistle Workshop on Saturday, April 2nd, 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Cost is $25/member, $30/non-member.  All proceeds will benefit the Louisville Clay Scholarship Fund.


 
HOME THROWN/HOME GROWN:  There are a few spaces left so we are still taking participation forms.  This year Linda and Janet have planned music for Friday evening and Linda is currently talking to a few farmers from the Farmers' Market to see if they would like to set up a food booth.  This year our sale will coincide not just with the Saturday Farmers' Market, but with the Bardstown Bound celebration on Friday.


LOUISVILLE CLAY SCHOLARSHIP FUND:  So far we have approximately $100 in our fund but there will be proceeds added very soon from the Whistle Workshop.  We have an application form ready to load onto the blog as soon as we reach $500.

THE ARTIST'S CRITIQUE:  It would be very difficult for relay all the information that was given to us at the meeting.  Each person in that room took away something different.  We are all at different levels, at different stages of our work.  We all have different goals.  Both women want us to, above all else, approach our work with a personal honesty and, from that point, make relevant choices.
What I have done below is to make available to you the handouts that were given to us.  This was one of those meetings where 'ya just had to be there'!
