OVWG LEARNING CENTER
Over 135 members and guests attended our own grand opening and Turnfest. The Learning Center was a beehive of activity with 8 members doing a variety of demonstrations. Pictures of the winners of the Beads of Courage can be found in the Photo Gallery. Stay tuned for more information about upcoming activities in the Learning Center, including a slate of open shop times available to OVWG members.
OVWG LEARNING CENTER IN THE NEWS:
The auction is a great opportunity to collect the work of fellow OVWG members and the visiting professionals, and to have your work collected by others as well. The auction is also a key fundraising element of the symposium. Please consider donating a turned item, a tool, or some nice wood for the silent and live auctions. Contact K. C. Kendall (firstname.lastname@example.org) to confirm your contribution.
OXFORD COMMUNITY ARTS CENTER EXHIBITION
We once again have the opportunity to exhibit and sell our work at the Oxford Community Arts Center. The exhibition starts in early November for two months. This is well before the holiday season, much more so than what we had with last year's exhibit. So, increased sales are likely this year.
To participate, send digital pictures of your proposed entries to KC Kendall at email@example.com. You may submit as many items as you wish. We will select up to 3 items per person for the show. Send the digital pictures to KC by October 23rd. Selections will be announced by October 26th. Items selected for the show must then be delivered to KC or to other helpers by November 6th. The show will open on Friday, November 13th with a reception.
