December Meeting

Please join us Thursday, December 16 for a presentation with our President Denise Fontaine-Pincince based on an ‘art with poetry’ project she created for the Haiku North America conference. Denise's process in creating four art collections: tiny books, tea bags, postcards and garden rocks, as well as producing the video showcasing the haiku and work, will be discussed. It is suggested, but not required, that you view the YouTube video prior to the November 18 presentation.

Monthly meetings are held at the St. Francis Parish Hall, 12 Park Street, Belchertown, Massachusetts. We are asking meeting attendees to wear a mask or face covering and maintain social distancing. Doors open at 6:45 pm with the business meeting scheduled at 7:00 pm, followed by the artist presentation.


Events

On Saturday, November 27th from 1:00 – 3:00 pm, we will host our second annual 'Art Take Away' and this year we are joining in on the holiday festivities with The Belchertown Cultural Council Winter Lights. Once again we will be decorating the big pine tree in the center of the common decked out in lights, embellishing with donations of art supplies, greeting cards, handmade ornaments, fine art, fine art prints, photography--anything art related. This is an opportunity for QAA to give during this season of giving and to fulfill an important part of our mission which is to provide opportunity for local artists and to promote community interest in the visual arts. So, how can you participate?

Please pre-package donated item(s) in a quart or gallon size baggie. Feel free to include your business card. Any donations can be brought to the November 18 meeting. In addition, Denise Fontaine-Pincince will have a donation basket on her front porch for drop off items at 40 South Main Street in Belchertown, from November 3-24. (White house with red shutters).

Thank you to Rick Guimond for chairing the Art Take Away. Rick is asking for volunteers to work one hour time slots beginning with the set up at noon --then coverage from 1-3:00 pm for the take away, and take down from 3-3:30 pm that day. Anyone interested in helping please contact Rick Guimond (guimonddance@gmail.com) with questions and to volunteer. Any amount of time you can provide will be appreciated!
