Notes from the President

Our annual exhibit of art by By Peter Grant Huntsville Art League members is usually scheduled for August or September. Unique Views has been a crowd pleaser every year since its inception (2005). Last year’s reception for Unique Views was well attended by artists, guests, media, and local celebrities. We want this year to be just as notable. We need a chairman for this event. How about you? All of the steps and procedures are in place and written down, and we have plenty of volunteers to help, but we need someone to coordinate everyone’s efforts. Contact me at grantp@hiwaay.net or 256-509-0449 if you are willing to help us with this event.

We also need someone to chair Collector’s Draw 2013. We begin selling tickets after Thanksgiving and collecting art around the same time. This event is traditionally held in February. This is our largest fundraiser of the year. Again, all of the information you will need is in written form, and what is really needed is someone to coordinate the efforts of the volunteers. Both of these events have been in existence for enough years to run smoothly. But they are not “self-running!” We need you! See my number above and let me know that you are willing to start working the plans for this event.

We have our annual election of officers coming up 15 May at 7 PM at Huntsville Art League Main Gallery. Shirley Barnes has been hard at work contacting our membership and gathering nominations for the Board. Of course, nominations will also be taken from the “floor” the night of the elections and can be written in for voting. Please make your plans to attend. If you cannot, place your vote via proxy with another member.

Our Executive Director Search Committee has been hard at work, too, collecting names and resumes of applicants for the Executive Director position. Interviews have taken place and we hope to have exciting news to tell you soon.

To recap:

  • We need Chairs for Unique Views and Collector’s Draw
  • Elections to be held at May meeting
  • Executive Director announcement soon

I look forward to seeing everyone at the next monthly meeting 15 May at 7 PM at Huntsville Art League Main Gallery.
