Join SDA-North Peninsula member Cheri Kopp for a fun, festive, creative evening. Share a light meal, libations and music while you combine bits from paperboard packaging (and those vintage postcards) to create small, personalized collages. Scissors, tape and sewn accents – it couldn’t be easier. All materials, supplies and tools provided. Cheri Kopp is a visual artist working in fiber and all manner of cast-off materials. Contact Cheri with questions, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Learn more and register here.

SDA-NP members at Northwind Arts Center Show
Northwind Arts Center’s 16th Annual Small Expressions exhibit in Port Townsend celebrates art no more than 15 inches in any direction. It represents all sorts of media, including jewelry. Juror Marie Weichman, an educator at Olympic College, ceramic and installation artist, chose work of four SDA-Peninsula artists to be included in the show – Pat Herkal, Mary O’Shaughnessy, Janice Speck and Cathie Wier. Herkal’s fiber bead embroidered sculpture Oscar Fox received the Juror’s Award. The show hangs until December 30.
New Kitsap Regional Group
We had 12 surface design artists at our first meeting on December 5, with lots of ideas and enthusiasm shared.
Our second meeting will take place on Tuesday, January 2 from 11 a.m–1 p.m. at BARN Fiber Arts Studio on Bainbridge (8890 Three Tree Lane NE, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110).
Agenda: Show and tell so we can become acquainted with each other’s work. Please bring a piece of your recent work or a work in progress. We will display them on tables and take time to walk around and talk with each other about our pieces.
Roles and Responsibilities: We agreed at the last meeting that we would have a program committee of three people rotating every six months. Other potential roles: exhibits, communications and ??. Think about what role you would like to play in the group.
Resource/Idea Sharing: Compile a list of potential field trips, guest speakers, projects and topics of interest for our meetings. Please bring a list ready to share with the group.
Please contact Roberta Nelson (email@example.com) or Tonnie Wolfe (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
2018 SDA-WA Volunteer Opportunities
Looking for a way to connect with other artists and expand your world in 2018? SDA-WA is looking for a Membership Rep and a Finance Rep. The Membership Rep uses macros in Microsoft Excel to sort the Washington members list, emails new members and notifies members when their memberships are expiring. The position would be a good fit for someone who likes to work with data in Microsoft Excel. The Finance Rep works with the SDA Treasurer Sarah Bush to balance the SDA-WA budget, and handles funding requests and art show sales. The position would be a good fit for someone who likes to work with numbers.
Contact Communications Rep Francesca Penchant (email@example.com) for more info about these volunteer positions!
