Last Quarterly Meeting Notes:Part 1



Hi!
About two and a half weeks ago we had our quarterly SDA Illinois meeting at the home and studio of Marianne Biagi. Marianne's studio is located in a side building that was supposed to be in-law quarters. Her space is beautiful and incredibly organized as you can see below.




There were five of us present for the meeting. Besides a very good potluck meal and our usual Show & Tell we discussed a number of things. One of those things was a discussion about having another meeting at Navy Pier or somewhere near it during the SOFA Show (since a number of Surface Design Association members come into Chicago for it). And, of course, a part of that meeting would be a Show & Tell. Jeanette, our representative, is looking into locations for the meeting and will email us all when the plan is solidified. So, if you are coming to the SOFA show keep this in mind. Another item that came up was the idea of having an Illinois SDA Member Show sometime in June or July 2012. Jeanette has found a possible gallery to hold it. Jeanette will let us know when she has finalized the plan and what the theme for the show will be.

I will be writing one more post in the next couple of days with photos from the meeting's Show & Tell. I just wanted to get out general outline of the meeting's contents and make you all aware of the meeting that is being planned during the SOFA Show. So, keep your eyes peeled for more information coming to you via email from Jeanette. Take care!

Sorry to have missed the meeting. Studio visits are the best! You get an idea of how others work and organize their space. Thanks for sharing the photos with us!

Too bad I had a class I was teaching that day. I would have loved to come and see all of you and all your wonderful work. Next time!
