Meeting Recap (and other stuff...)

We had a lot to talk about at our first meeting this semester; but if you couldn't make it I'm about to get you caught up... kind of caught up...

1. We mentioned having a Movie Night in the lecture room this Friday... 5ish... pizza, drink, etc. I wasn't sure how many people were interested in coming, but I thought it would be a good relaxing first event. Something to wind down from classes and relax, in uncomfortable chairs. I'm not sure if we are going through with this even or not because I'm unsure of attendance. I'll post something on the white  board over the sofa tomorrow about a specific date. Might be next Friday to allow more notice to more people...

2. "Not For Sale" donations. There is going to be a sale on Feb 10th and all the money will go to the Not for Sale charity to help end human trafficking... The sale is for "valentines day" gifts. So keep that in mind. You can donate any work you want, and I would encourage everyone to donate at least one thing. Our goal is to be able to cover a table with items. I think we can do that easy.

3. Movie props. For an upcoming movie being shot on campus they need some props made. Water bottles that are to be sold in a scene in the movie, as well as art to hang on walls. We are thinking about maybe having an event in the art building where we can make these "crafts" and eat pizza (yes because that's all we eat (: ) and hang out... make it fun ya know.

4. People need to pay dues! If you already paid this year that's great, but if you haven't please be an awesome person and pay :) Thanks...

5. There will be a trip to Chicago in April. The cost for that are not set in stone... so more information will be coming up soon... yes everyone is going. :)

6. Empty Bowl!! I'm personally really excited about this. (This wasn't talked about at the meeting, but I just got an email from Dr. D about it) It's Feb. 22 and 24 That's a Tuesday and Thursday from 1-3:30. Everyone has to come make a bowl. All the bowls will be sold to go to a charity that is trying to end hunger. Check out the SITE Soooo pumped about this event! I expect everyone to come :)

If you want more info on anything please just email me and I can give you more details. :)

New Layout

Ok... I'm not to sure if I like this new layout or not... I got tired of the other one, and there were some weird kinks in it too. So I used a blogger layout, and just changed up the colors and stuff. Hopefully it will work better.

Meeting tomorrow... noon.

We will have a lot more to talk about than I thought. There are a few events that I'm really excited about us getting involved in. And I hope some of you get excited too so we can actually participate. :) Also we have the "movie evening"to discuss, and what other events we want to plan or be a part of.

See you guys tomorrow I hope.

Welcome Back!!!

Hey guys... 
We are going to have our first meeting January 25th (that's a Tuesday) in the usual place : computer lab. 
I hope everyone will at least think about coming. 
But if you can't make it I'll be posting what happened and what any new plans here. :) 
I was thinking about a movie evening in the lecture room... order pizza or something and just hang out. Maybe de-stress from classes beginning and moving back. But we can talk about all the details of when and where at the meeting! 

See you then I hope.

I can't believe the semester went by so fast, but then again it always seems fast. But I just wanted to thank everyone for a great semester, and I hope it will be even better next semester. 

I hope everyone has a great Christmas and New Year!!! 

See you guys next semester. :) 

I thought this was funny... so click if you wanna see :)

Ok this is pretty last minute but we are going to have a Christmas get together THIS FRIDAY in the ART BUILDING GALLERY. I hope everyone gets a chance to stop by. We will be starting at around 6 and it will end whenever everyone is gone :) 

We will (maybe) we watching a christmas movie (Elf), and doing a FOUND gift exchange. This gift shouldn't cost a dime, just something that you found. :) Also Kappa Pi will be providing Pizza and a few drinks, but I hope everyone will bring some good junk food if they can. :) So bring a dish if you want, but you don't have to... and bring a found gift so you can participate in the gift exchange! 

I'm so excited, and even though this is really last minute I hope everyone has time to stop in and take a break from stressful finals time. 

See you guys Friday!!!

Road Trip!

Here is a cool opportunity for all of us to get involved in! 

I copied this from the gcva blog:

Road Trip*

So, who's ready for finals?

Who's already anticipating a break from finals? Now we're talking! On 
Sunday, Dec. 12, GCVA will be hosting a trip to Cincinnati. We're going to make a day of it, see some great art and have some fun rounding out what has been a long (although fruitful) semester. Plans include:
  • A visit to the Taft Museum, which will be hosting an exhibit of Goya's Los Caprichos prints (good stuff).
  • A visit to the Contemporary Art Center to see the exhibit of contemporary art entitled Where Do We Go From Here? Selections from the Jumex Collection. I have already blogged about my excitement about this exhibithere.
  • A trip to Jungle Jim's International Market and/or IKEA.
We're meeting at the department next Sunday at 9:30 am. We'll cover transportation; just bring some money for food and/or shopping. Bring your notes or flashcards to study on the ride if you need to, but don't miss out on this event.

If you'd like to attend, we'll need to know a head-count beforehand so that we can plan for it (and so that I can get certified to drive the GC van if I need to). 
Either comment here with your name or email me at by Monday, Dec. 6 to let me know if you are interested in coming. Spread the word to SODAH members.
*"Road trip" just sounds better than "field trip."

Ice House Show

On Tuesday November 16th there will an art opening at the Ice House Gallery in Georgetown (114 South Water St.)
Here is the information I received about the event:
Charles Gregory: Landscapes and Paint Knife Selections. There will be live music and light refreshment. Dress warmly and come celebrate with us the art of Charles Gregory! This opening will kick off our Holiday 30% off sale including jewelry.  The sale will last from November 16, 2010 until January 8, 2011!  (The sale does not include small reproductions.) For more info please call (859)312-1676.  Everyone is invited and bring a friend!  

I'm sure this would be considered NEXUS credit for anyone who wants it. Just double check with one of your professors to make sure. 

Hope you guys will come out. It's a really interesting space, but there isn't heating in the building so like it says above you will want to bundle up. :) 

And remember there will be a meeting this Thursday the 11th at noon in room 116 of the art building. :)
