Art Supply Exchange

Change of Venue – Due to the Summer Schedule at Bay College we will be meeting in alternative locations over the summer months.

Borderland Arts will meet on Thursday, August 2, 6 pm, at the Dickinson County Library (multi-purpose room) in Iron Mountain, MI.
I would imagine that most of us have art supplies we will never use. Trying out watercolor or some other medium has been on your list of things to do for years but you just never get around to it. Your supplies sitting lonely on the shelf taking up space in your art room. This next meeting will be a good time to clear out unused art materials and swap with others. If you don’t have something to swap just bring your ideas of what projects you would like to see in the coming months. Also feel free to bring in a piece of artwork for show and tell.

Borderland Visual Artists have been invited to collaborate with the Marquette Poets Circle this fall.

If you will recall our Borderland meetings in April and May involved local writers, Genean Granger and Stella Hansen, who read their poetry as the visual artists reacted to their choice of poems and in their own media. Now we look forward to a collaboration with the Marquette Poets Circle. To see what their group created as a gallery exhibit last year, please visit https://janeenpergrin.wixsite.com/mpcgallery

As the summer flows, and your artwork takes form, remember to keep back one or two pieces that you might submit for a poet to read into and to react. Learn more as this project evolves by attending the Borderland meetings.
