Farewell and good luck to Mark Bray and his partner Darcy Rowley on their recent move to Ohio. The Art Guild is very grateful to Mark for his time, effort and skills in updating our Dirty Palette to an online version, and
his service on the AGP Board as VP and Communications Chair. Thank you, Mark!

AGP members are the best volunteers in the world. In the little over a year since I took over scheduling the staffers for the Sanchez Galleries, I have found that Left Coast Annual and 50/50 are the most difficult shows to fill. This year several AGP members signed up for a spot when they were picking up work from the previous show – Lost & Found. Still, at the end of that artwork pickup, there were about 14 spots to fill. On Sunday, 4/9, about noon, just after I had put my laundry in the washing machine, I send out an email to the AGP members, listing the dates & times that were still open.
A few minutes after I hit send, I got a response – yay!!! Just after I had confirmed that one, another email popped up. I confirmed that one and then went to put my clean clothes on the clothes line in my backyard to dry. I pulled a few weeds while I was out in the backyard and when I came back to the computer, about an hour after I had left, there were two more emails – and one of those AGP members was willing to do two spots – my favourite kind of people!!!
More emails came in throughout the afternoon & early evening.
By 9 pm Sunday evening I had only 6 spots left – YAY!!!
I sent another email with those 6 spots listed and went to bed shortly after that. When I got up Monday morning I had 4 new emails. On Tuesday before 5 pm I had received two more emails filling up the last to vacant spots. YAY, YAY, YIPPEE, HOORAY!!!!!
Art Guild Members are the BEST Volunteers in the entire World. And for that I am so grateful. ~charlotte, Gallery Staffing Coordinator
