Gallery I - BAA: "Members Spring Show"
The Bloomingdale Artists Association (BAA) was formed to provide a place for people of all ages to discover, learn and share their knowledge of the fine arts. Meetings and events are designed to provide a place for inspiration, fulfillment, growth and fun! The BAA encourages exploration and experimentation by offering programs and workshops at monthly meetings.
2014 programs include:
April 9 - Ceramic Workshop – Led by Artist Sue Dix, members create a small tray. Sue glazesthem with a variegated blue glaze, fires them and returns them in time for the BAA's May meeting. Sue began taking ceramic and clay classes in 2006. Soon after, she set up a pottery studio in her ggarage, and she's been creating award-winning art ever since. Her background in painting can be seen in the way she underglazes to paint her pieces. Her work has been exhibited at the DuPage Art League, LaGrange Art League and Studio V at Harper College.
May 14 - Photo Composition – Presented by Fred Drury, members are encouraged to bring their digital cameras and take notes. Fred's passion is making images of the natural world, including underwater photography. He is a member of the faculty at the College of DuPage, a staff lecturer in the Natural History Education Department at The Morton Arboretum, and he also teaches at the DuPage Art League, all of which are located in Chicago's western suburbs.
Programs begin at 6:45 p.m. at the Museum. Contact Nicole Jawaji for details and registration, email@example.com, (847) 845-4471. Visitor drop-in fee is $5. A materials fee may apply.
