In searching for a new frontier for meeting new artists and becoming more involved in the community of artists here in Birmingham, I joined the Birmingham Artist Association (aka BAA). Better half and me went to a member meeting last Wednesday night at the Continental Bakery. It was upstairs and very "Chez Lulu" and covered in the artwork of Dori Decamillis. one of my instructors.
I have never felt so welcomed by so many strangers! And learned about many wonderful opportunities.
I really want to encourage my artist friends to join the BAA. We'll be showing off at King's Antiques in November and the Big Night is the 20th all over Pepper Place and Ferguson Bath and Kitchen Fixtures.
There's a juried show coming up in February. And several workshops, including one in January with an awesome international artist who paints in oils in Figuratism.. It's really a great opportunity to meet other artists as well as learn and share.
