KEN CARYL ART GUILD
Minutes of the Business & General Meeting
Tuesday, January 12, 2021
• Board Members in Attendance: Cindy Marshall, Michelle Sires-DeLorean, Judy Ahlborn, Steve Begej
o The current show at 1101 W. Mineral St. in Littleton will end on Thursday, January 14, and participating artists need to pick up their works on that day from 10:00AM to Noon. There was reported to be some interest in sales, but non were completed.

o Cindy reported that she will be participating in a two-person show at the same venue titled “Two Friends in a Pandemic” that will run for the next 45 days.
o After discussion, it was decided that entrants would be limited to high school aged students living in the various Ken Caryl areas (Valley, Ranch, and Plains). Middle school students were also considered for inclusion, but would require a separate category and judging, and could result in an excessively large and lengthy exhibit. They will be considered again in the future depending on the experiences and outcome of a more limited and conservative effort with just high school students.
o The title of the show will be “2021 KCAG Virtual Juried Teen Art Show”
o The entries will be judged (tentative jurors: Cindy, Bruce, and Judy)
