General Meeting

November 8, 2016

President Herlinda Giandalia called the meeting to order at approximately 9:50 a.m.

President Giandalia announced that spots for a show at Lexus-Torrance are full for 2017 although it might be possible to partner with another of the groups associated with PVAC. Peninsula Artists (July 14-September 8) was mentioned as a possibility because it is not too large a group. Herlinda will investigate. In addition, we were offered January 20-March 3, 2018, and November 10-January 5, 2019, at Lexus. Consensus was to accept and to consider other venues as well. Sue Kuuskmae announced that it might be possible to take over the Pastel Society reservation at the Malaga Cove Library Gallery. Other venue possibilities mentioned were the Manhattan Beach Creative Arts Society or The Loft in San Pedro; however, it was noted that the Manhattan Beach location is becoming more of a museum than a venue for local art exhibitions and The Loft is available only to its members. Local vacant storefronts were mentioned also as a possibility. Lois Olsen will investigate locations in the PV Promenade.

A motion was made, seconded, and passed to grant Emeritus status to Jean Stephenson.

It was announced that today was the deadline for submitting payment for the holiday luncheon. Members were also reminded that membership dues need to be paid. Members should check with Annie Clavel if unsure about whether they owe dues. Copies of the current roster were available for pickup at the sign-in desk.

Several announcements were made. Among those were the following.

Sue Kuuskmae announced that Lois Olsen would soon be giving a workshop in abstract art at Destination: Art; Jackie Long would be giving a workshop at the end of January; and that Destination: Art appeared on the cover of Torrance Today.

Kathy Bergstrom reminded members of Destination: Art’s Art to Go event November 19, which is a sale of 8”x8” and 12”x12” art works for $100 and $150, respectively.  Two framers would be on hand as well.

Audrey Suer recommended the National Water Color Society exhibition in San Pedro that will be closing soon.

The Irvine Museum and the museum at Chapman University were recommended for field trips.

The PVAC student/teacher boutique is the first weekend in December.

Beanie Kaman is the featured artist at Peggy Zast’s gallery in The Loft.

Jim Morino introduced today’s demonstrator, artist Vadim Zanginian. Mr. Zanginian is a portrait and figure painter who has also worked extensively in textile design. He works with a limited palette, primarily red, lemon yellow, black and white, playing translucent and opaque colors against each other and working from big shapes to small. He works from photographs in order to maintain consistent light. In this case, he worked from two photos—one for color, the other sepia for values. He stated that art is a never ending searching process and stressed composition, value, pleasing shapes, and color harmony.

The meeting was adjourned at about noon.

Respectfully submitted by LaVonne Wuertz, secretary.

General Meeting

October 11, 2016

President Herlinda Giandalia called the meeting to order at 9:48 a.m.

Herlinda announced that in lieu of exchanging gifts at our holiday luncheon, the Board suggested that Paletteers make a charitable gift this year. After discussion, a motion was moved, seconded and passed that those members who wished to participate bring to the holiday luncheon an unwrapped gift for Toys for Tots or a check or cash for a donation to South Bay Cats, a pet rescue organization.

Farla Binder reminded everyone that the holiday luncheon is Wednesday, December 14th, at 11:30 a.m. at the Los Verdes Country Club, 7000 West Los Verdes Drive, Rancho Palos Verdes. The menu will consist of a chicken or fish entree, a salad, dessert, and beverage. Cost is $30. Send a check for $30 made out to Paletteers to Annie Clavel, membership chair. The mandatory deadline for payment is November 8, the date of our November meeting. Indicate on your check whether you want chicken or fish. There is a bar on the premises for those who want to purchase wine or a cocktail.

Treasurer Marsha Burnett reported that as of the end of the fiscal year in June Paletteers had $2,491. At present, the total is $3,600. Our largest expense is the deposit for the holiday party. Marsha reported that members have contributed about $200 to an award in memory of Carol Morris Ward. Members can still donate. One donation has been received so far to honor Helen Mallet, Emeritus.

Membership Chair Annie Clavel announced that she is currently updating the membership roster. It will be maintained on the web but will be available only to members via a link which Annie will provide. All members are asked to verify their roster information and to keep Annie informed in a timely manner of changes (annie@annieclavel.com). When the roster is ready, Mary Lou Slagter has volunteered to print and bring copies to a general meeting for those who do not have printing capability.

Herlinda announced that Paletteers is not on the list for a Lexus exhibition until 2018. We are on a waiting list for 2017. Herlinda asked for volunteers to investigate other possible show venues. Barbara St. John will contact the Malaga Cove Library and Annie Clavel will investigate the Loft in San Pedro. The main Palos Verdes Library District library was also mentioned as a possibility. Suggested as a possibility for participation in a public event was the Torrance Historical Homes Tour which this year had members of Destination: Art and the Torrance Artists Guild exhibiting at the Torrance Woman’s Club.

Herlinda asked for volunteers for a show committee to be in place for whenever a show is scheduled. The following members volunteered: Jim Morino, Barbara St. John, Dael Patton, Mary Lou Slagter, Mae Fuchino, Betsey Miller, Sue Kuuskamae, Frances Nebolon, Audrey Suer, Chris Centofante, and K. C. Johnson.

Discussion ensued over the displeasure of many of the artists regarding the perceived lack of support of the art groups by the Art Center administration. It was suggested that someone write a letter (or petition) to the Board expressing unhappiness with the Center.  It was further suggested that the idea be presented to the PVACA Board to carry to all seven groups seeking their participation. No action was taken.

Jim Morino announced that the presenter at the Paletteers meeting November 8 will be oil painter Vadim Zanginian.

Sue Kuuskamae announced a class forming at Destination: Art for October 23, from 9:30-3:30 on collage with Jacki Long. Cost is $80. Participants supply their own canvas and gel medium.

Kathy Bergstrom reminded the group of the Friday reception for Rejoice in Art at the United Methodist Church on Palos Verdes Drive North.

Tama Knowles reminded the group of the Artists Unlimited exhibition at the Malaga Cove Library Gallery running through October 22 with the reception being October 15 from 1-4 pm.

The Palos Verdes Art Center All Media Student and Instructor Holiday Sale will be Friday and Saturday, December 2 and 3. The application to participate must be submitted before November 7.

Annie Clavel announced two shows at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art in Santa Ana–Art Start: An Affordable Holiday Art Sale November 5 through December 10 and a call for art (deadline December 30) for Incarceration February 4 through March 11, 2017.

The meeting was adjourned at 10:37 a.m. and was followed by a presentation by Dael Patton, Joanne Goodman, and Lois Olsen. Working on the same canvas, they each demonstrated how they approach their abstract art, and at the conclusion invited the members to add to the painting. The resulting painting was presented to the Paletteer present with the closest birthday to today–Kathy Bergstrom.
