Three members of Surface Design Association (Washington), Lynne Rigby, Kristine Service and Mary Berdan, along with Mary Lewis and Deborah Jaffe, meet as a small group weekly to study art history. Referring to themselves as the Thursday Art Group (TAG-5), they have been meeting faithfully for about three years.
An article regarding these artists, their art, and art studies has been published in the August/September 2012 issue of Quilting Arts Magazine. The article is titled Replenishing Your Creative Well: Fiber Art Groups by Lynn Krawczyk.
The group also has a blog which chronicles their art history journey. http://arthistorygroup.blogspot.com/ Their blog states: “Our intention is to inspire each of our blog readers as we share some of our art history studies with you.”
