Get out of the heat and come to the beach, Saturday, July 18, 2009, 10:00 a.m. for the BAGSC meeting at the home of Deb  Shaw.

RSVP by email or phone to Deb.

Lunch will be potluck style, so please let Deb know what you’re bringing. Members are encouraged to form car pools!  The  meeting agenda includes updates on classes and exhibitions.

Come prepared to share your latest work; we want to see your portfolio. Learn about how to automatically be notified of new articles as soon as they’re posted to the blog and how to become a blog editor yourself.

Following the meeting and lunch, we plan to pick Margaret Best up at the airport and visit the Orange County Museum of Art to view Illumination: The Paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe, Agnes Pelton, Agnes Martin, and Florence Miller Pierce. Carpools will be available to the Orange County Museum of Art.

Illumination is the first exhibition to bring together the work of these four important American women modernists. O’Keeffe (1887-1986) and Pelton (1881-1961) were born six years apart in the 1880s, while Martin (1912-2004) and Pierce (1918-2007) were born six years apart in the 1910s. All four drew on nature as their primary focus, inspired by arid and spare desert environments.

Thank you, and we hope to see you on July 18th.
