Chair: Debbie Moore called meeting to order at approximately 12:10 p
Jenny provided a recap of the RoCo Art Alliance purpose. She also updated group on planned webinars with The Poetry Cafe and Julie Crezenzo (clay). She forgot to mention Meda Howell is planning a webinar as well.
This was Kathyn's first meeting and she had questions about the funding for artist stipends. Kathyn mentioned that the artists affiliated with Art in the Garden are accustomed to receiving stipends for classes. Jenny noted that the financial support to organizations included the understanding that those organizations would provide webinars by either artists on their board or volunteers. Jenny suggested that board members of art organizations recuse themselves from receiving stipends in order to maintain a sense of fairness. Once proof of the webinar concept is established, she recommended a discussion with all the Art Alliance members on how to utilize the $1,000 available in artists stipends.
Debbie updated the group on webinars that FAFA is planning with Brenda Sutton and perhaps Stesha Warren. Debbie is planning a cooking webinar on the 4 elements: fire, wind, water & earth.
Meeting adjourned at approx. 12:35
NEXT MEETING: August 6 at 12 pm - Ashely Hickock, Mayodan Art Center, Chair. Jenny will email Zoom invite to the group.
