Ann Musolf called the meeting to order at 7:30 in lieu of Mary Devoney who was not present. 


Paula mentioned the next Senior Center art exchange date would be September 27th.  After that, the next exchange will be November 15th.

Tom Warnke spoke for Joan Zoia and explained the drop-off/pick-up times for the Schaumburg and Palatine Libraries’ Exhibits.  Members should not sign up for future exhibits if they cannot be available for the assigned times.

Art Fair

Linda Campuzano gave a wrap up of the fair and renewed the need for members to help next year.


Ann introduced several new members to the Guild.


Mary Devoney discussed what happened when she thought an online buyer was interested in her work.  Many of these inquiries are scams looking for personal information.  If you do find a legitimate buyer, do not hesitate to schedule the purchase in public, such as the Senior Center or the Police Department.


Eileen introduced Juliet Christensen to do a watercolor demo.
