PROPOSED - Glass Crafter’s Club Collaboration for CV-2023:  Representatives of the Glass Crafters Club approached the Creative Vision-2023 Steering Committee requesting to join with the Photo and Art Club for Creative Vision 2023 (CV 2023.)  Two Glass Crafter representatives met with the CV-2023 Steering Committee which recommended a trial inclusion (one photographer paired with one glass crafter, and one artist paired with one glass crafter) for CV-2023.of Glass Crafters this year.  The Photo Club Board has approved this.  A motion was made and seconded to approve the collaboration on a limited basis (as described above) for CV-2023.  A discussion was held and the AAA Executive Board, passed the motion.

2. PROPOSED - Garden Club Collaboration: Planned for September 17th-18th.  Art in Bloom is an idea brought to us by Pauline Oliver, an AAA member and formerly a museum docent.  Look “Art in Bloom” up on the Internet and see that many, many museums like the Milwaukee Museum of Art, the Boston Museum, the North Carolina Museum of Art, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme Connecticut, and many more present this beautiful and creative event.  Floral artists from Sun City’s Garden Club would interpret works of art done by AAA members!  It’s new to us, and a great collaborative event!

Parameters for submission:

- 16 x 20 or larger

- Subjects would include still life’s, portraits, landscapes,  (preferably no florals).

- Submissions are due by mid-July.  Watch for more details

Photos of the artwork will be submitted to and approved for show inclusion by Pauline Oliver (AAA) and Dorothy Duke  (Garden Club)  Any member who also wants to display and/or sell a painting submitted for this show may do so.  A motion was made and seconded to approve this collaborative event with the Garden Club.  A discussion was held and the AAA Executive Board passed the motion unanimously
