Keep the “Community” in Community Colleges!

community colleges

If you’ve ever benefited from the classes at a community college near you, please take the time to read about the repeatability regulations that went into effect in September of 2013.

“…In addition to reducing access for all students/community members, these changes will have a devastating impact on visual and performing arts across the state. Without changes to these regulations, the depth and breadth of community college arts programs, which have been built for over fifty years, will crumble.  (Arts and physical education students throughout the state are particularly impacted by the regulations. While students can, in the case of a “content-related family,” repeat a course up to four times, they can only take a total of four courses in a content-related family. This significantly limits the success and access for students who must repeat courses multiple times in order to become proficient.)…”

Harriete Estel Berman

Join us for the Winter Members Party on Sunday, February 16, 2014.  The Potluck is at 12:30, with a general membership Meeting at 1:00, and finally at 1:30… Harriete.  This year’s Winter Party will be held at the Haute Enchilada Restaurant in Moss Landing, in the meeting room out back.  If you went to last year’s Winter Party, it is the same location.

Harriete Estel Berman is a California artist, jeweler, silversmith, sculptor, lecturer and educator. She will begin with a brief description of her work with examples on hand and will continue to spice things up with a lively discussion on professional development. Do you suffer from self-rejection when it comes to applying for exhibitions? Wonder how to promote your work effectively online? Want tips for the best strategies for your images, website or blog? Controversial issues? Burning topics? Or everyday professional practices that will boost your career? Nothing is too hot to Ask Harriete about.

Go to the MBMAG Facebook Group to send questions to Harriete directly and she will include it in the presentation. If you are facing an issue you can bet someone else is also.

3:30 LYNDA WATSON’S PRESENTATION on her TRIP to CHINA

Featured Artist Lynda Watson will give a talk and slide presentation on her recent trip to China.   It was an amazing experience and you will enjoy seeing metal art.

“After a trip to Southeastern China in 2008, Mary Hu was invited by the Chinese government to bring 10 professional metalsmiths/jewelers to China for the purpose of observing, advising, and showing work to students and faculty at Chinese University metals programs. 

We were also there to study Maio jewelry and costume in its original, indigenous form and as it was being produced for export as tourist goods. I will show images of the artisans making both fine silver and nickel silver traditional jewelry as well as photos of museum pieces and where the Miao live and work.”  -Lynda

DON’T MISS A SINGLE MOMENT!

Thank you to Kim Solana for graciously making the room available for MBMAG on this auspicious day – Chinese New Year.
