Next exhibit

Hidden Dreams                           Theme for next CFAL show      September/October 2017


The theme is meant to INSPIRE creativity, not limit creativity.  Below are some suggestions.  Please realize these are just suggestions and by no means represent all of the ways to interpret and represent the theme.

1.  Abstract dream scape--fantasy-like, whimsical, representative of a more serious or even disturbing dream;

2.  The dreams we hold hidden for those we love.....parents, partners, children, friends;

3.  The dreams we hold hidden for ourselves--small, like a day of peace and quiet, a dream vacation, or large and serious;

4.  Unfinished Objects.....until it is finished, the dream or vision that inspired the piece remains at least partially hidden.

5.   Animal dreams.....for example, think of a dog moving his legs while he is dreaming.

6.  Recurring theme or symbol from our own dreams;

7.  Rituals, special items etc. related to dreams--the dream pouches that Donna shared with us at our last meeting, dream catchers, etc.

8.  Obstacles to realizing our dreams--within ourselves, social justice issues that oppress or repress entire groups of people, forcing them to keep dreams hidden;

9.  Role models who have paved the way for others to pursue their own hidden dreams, bring them into reality instead of keeping them hidden.

10.  A peek into the dreams of others (I think of the wonderful photo of the fly at our last meeting, and the saying....."If I could be a fly on the wall".....spy into the hidden worlds of others.....)

Have fun.  Let your imagination soar......This is by no means an all-inclusive list!!!

The entry form/and hanging guidelines are posted under Calls for Entry and Exhibition Guidelines.

Meeting Date and Location Change

estate sale for Penny Nichols

from Jane Olson Phillips: the estate sale for Penny Nichols is Friday and Saturday (August 26 and 27). I have no idea what there will be for sale, but since she was into fabrics and painting, there might be things CFAL members would like. It is in Magnolia Woods, next to Kenilworth. Information should be in the newspaper.

Message from Bebe, meeting cancelled

Hello, I know communication is down in a lot of places. If you can let us know how you are doing? Please let us know if you need help. Praying for all.

Denham Springs is flooded as you know. Mary Felder had to evacuate. Please pray for her.  I'm sure the Arts Council of Livingston Parish was affected.I think we will have to cancel meeting and regroup when this emergency is over.

Glenda Spikes, I need to contact you or your mother about 10 Years of the Swamp.

Please communicate with me as soon as possible so I can keep track of you all.

Concerned
