January 2018 ALOG Meeting


Our members gather monthly for some welcome camaraderie, a short business meeting, and a presentation on some aspect of the visual arts. This might be a “tour” of the artist’s work, a demonstration of an interesting technique, or even business topics such as how to market your art.

Visitors are always welcome.


Because of COVID-19, we have canceled our in-person member meetings, so member meetings will be held online instead -- we still get together, hear our regularly scheduled speaker and share our art.


Following our business meeting (board announcements, etc.) and guest speaker (see below), we use the remaining time for community time and artist sharing. Have a photo of your work that you would like to share and be prepared to say something about it. You will be able to show something from your computer screen or share a photo. Members may invite a guest.


You will receive a Zoom link prior to the meeting. If it’s your first Zoom, sign in early to be sure your computer or other device is ready. During the meeting you will be able to see the presentation and hear the speaker; for the last part of the meeting, members will be able to have the floor to ask the speaker questions, as well as show their work, announce news, and just chat.

I am so excited that we are making this happen! Please come and join us!
