Colorado Chapter Meets with National President
Five members of the Colorado WCA were able to meet with the new National President, Priscilla Otani, at Senga Nengudi's Colorado Springs Studio on April 23, 2012.
Priscilla enthusiastically outlined some of the coming events for the WCA, the various caucuses such as the international caucus and a potential international show in South Korea, an opportunity for curators to put on a show in Priscilla's San Francisco gallery, and more exhibit opportunities for WCA members. Priscilla also gave us a introductory lesson to Weebly dot com, free websites for artists and Leslie gave a brief demo on how to get your initial password for the WCA national website. Anyone who still needs instructions, please email Leslie. Then we continued over a pleasant supper at Mimi's restaurant. It was a very productive meeting!!

The Recent "Hat" Meeting!
The Hat meeting March 25, 2012
The most recent meeting of the local WCA chapter was March 25th at Kozo fine art paper and other supplies on Ellesworth in Denver. We brought in hats we either already had, as this old straw sun hat, or ones picked up locally at Thrift stores along with a variety of beads, ribbons, fabrics and other items to share for decorating purposes. We were all so engrossed in chatting about business, upcoming events, playing with the hats and or buying some of the fabulous handmade papers Kozo has to offer that we forgot to take pictures of us. My sun hat is woefully simple in comparison to the ones others were making, but at least you get the idea!
More About our Meetings
Stay tuned for announcements of future meetings. Generally we meet on Saturday or Sunday. Often the volunteer-member artist hosting the meeting will decide the location and time, and we often meet in artist's homes or studios. Other meetings might take place during the week, outside of Denver etc, depending on the volunteer artist hosting the gathering.
