Summer Schedule Heating Up!

Summer is case you didn't notice.  The temps are climbing and the rain is falling--typical summer for South Florida!  So, when you're not on the beach, dodge the raindrops with a visit to Clay Glass Metal Stone!  Our summer schedule is filling up with great events, shows, classes and more.  Last Friday, June 15th, marked the first of our summer "open call" art show series.  Coordinated by Gallery members Betty Wilson and Linda Manganaro, these shows are open to all artists, all mediums.  The first show, The Oddity of the Artist, was fantastic!  Over 30 artists joined, showing original painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media and more.  One very special aspect of these shows is the opportunity they offer for new and emerging artists to show their work.  We will be profiling a new artist from these shows each month here on our blog, along with an established artist.  Never shown your work before?  Well, now is the time!  The next show, "The Naked Truth" is scheduled for July 20th.  We'll be posting a link to the admissions form here soon...stay tuned.  In the meantime, feel free to contact Betty for more information about the admissions process.

Lake Worth is gearing up for a fantastic 4th of July celebration on the Avenue.  Family friendly events, contests, concerts, fireworks and even a KISSING PIG will be part of this non-stop fun day downtown.  Click here for the day's schedule.  Be sure to stop by the Gallery and say hello...

Next, we are holding our first Gallery Open House on July 6th, welcoming several new artists to our co-op, including Shannon Torrence, LaReine Marks, Irene Jalowayski, Barbara Keener, David Wood and Susan Saladino.  Come by to meet the artists, see the new works and enjoy a pot luck table of refreshments.

Speaking of LaReine Marks (a fantastic sculptor specializing in nudes), she will be offering life drawing sessions at CGMSG.  Held every Tuesday night from 6 - 9 PM, these classes are open to everyone, no matter your skill level.  Contact LaReine for details and to reserve a spot, space is limited and these classes will fill up quick!  $15.00 per session in advance, $20.00 per session at the door.  We hope to add more classes to our schedule, so stay tuned....
