AFA Now Meets Monthly in Round Rock!
Time & Location
Every second Tuesday of the month in the Art Room of the Baca Center at 301 W Bagdad Ave, Round Rock. (Except for July, when we party at the south meeting on the 3rd Wednesday) There is parking under the building toward the back. There is an elevator to the ground floor. There is also parking on Bagdad, and the entrance is on the EAST side of Baca. Note: the McConico building is located EAST of Baca, to help give a sense of direction.
We start with a show and tell segment, so bring your works that are in progress or have just been completed and let us get to know you. Many members use this as an opportunity to get feedback and solutions for technical difficulties. Then comes a short business meeting where you’ll hear about future exhibitions, events, or workshops. Then on to the evening’s program, which can be a presentation from a fiber artist, a hands-on activity, or even a party!
Sorry, all, we're canceling meetings but looking at virtual meetings. Write the prez for more info firstname.lastname@example.org This lovely image is from the NIAID-RML

So- Artist's statement versus Artist's biography- can YOU tell the difference? If you enter a show, you are frequently asked for one or the other or both. Learn what to say and what not to say from an expert at the north meeting in November. Cheryl Christian will give...
Come hear about re-purposing textiles (which might otherwise be sent to the dump!) Used fabrics tend to be softer and have 'character lines' which add dimension and interest to artwork. They frequently have prints and weaves that are not available today, another way...
