Letter from the President
Dear Broward Art Guild Members & Friends,
It is incredible how fast the years go by, but here we are at the end of another year already! It has been a good year for the Broward Art Guild, with our monthly shows in the gallery opening the same night as the North Beach Art Walk (the first Saturday of each month), in addition to exhibits at several local venues. We have also been busy with our outreach programs with Gilda's Club of South Florida and Children's Diagnostic Center.
Like the local area the Guild is also growing: Over the past year and half we have had some wonderful private shows by our members, along with some good fundraisers to help us stay solvent, as well as producing a good fundraiser for Gilda's Club of South Florida. We have started our workshops and classes, and are planning more for the coming year, along with our senior citizen outreach in local retirement Homes. We will also be starting our "Movie Night" along with "Music with Art Nights", "Poetry Performance Art" and this coming March we will have our big fundraiser, "The Secret Art Show" and more, so as you can see we are keeping very busy to help the guild grow and show works of art to the world.
We are grateful to the county for the grant we get, however, we must continue to raise funds, therefore, we rely on your support and individual contributions of time and talent, and of course, "cash" to maintain the successes of the Broward Art Guild.
For your guild to keep going we need your help: We need self-motivated individuals to sit on the Board of Directors. We also need your help in the following areas: Marketing, Public Relations and Corporate sponsorships, Fundraising, Event Planning, Outreach Programs, Education, and office work at the gallery, to name a few.
At this time I would like us all to say a big THANK YOU to all our volunteers. Without you there would be no Broward Art Guild: Your support and hard work are what keeps us going.
I would also offer my fond appreciation and thanks to our Executive Director for all his hard work in the day to day running of the gallery. My thanks also go out to the Board of Directors for all your support to me and the Guild.
It is also time for me to step down as your President in April 2013, it has been a challenging, enjoyable, and rewarding two years, but it is now time for someone new to step up and take the lead, and time for me to get out and do some photography!
If you like what we are doing for you and your artwork, and our community at large, Please help us to help you and keep your Broward Art Guild thriving well into the Future.
