Plainfield Art League - Feb 7th - 7pm meeting, demo and ONS

February 7th - 7pm meeting, demo and ONS
open to the public at Plainfield Library

demo is "ID Yourself" (show and tell) and
Critique of your artwork
at Plainfield Library

This meeting is Feb 7th, 7pm at the Plainfield Public Library.

- This is a free meeting and open to the public -

Members and the public are invited to spend up to 5 minutes describing yourself as an artist and a person including background information so the membership get to know you a little better. Be sure to bring in some of your artwork and describe in detail how the artwork was achieved. Also available, if you want, will be a Critique of your artwork, where areas that impressed and areas that did not, along with suggestions to make a difference may be provided. You may also ask about a specific problem you are having.  I (Mike Bessler) have a framing problem that I'll be bringing up.  Plainfield Art League has many experienced members that have expertise in oil, water color, acrylic, and other painting techniques as well as expertise in photography techniques and printing. So please bring in your artwork and discuss it with us.

ONS - One Night Show
The public as well as members are invited to participate in "A One Night Show" (ONS) that will also take place during the meeting.  Each attendee (members and non-members) should bring in one artwork to display to everyone at the meeting.  The best judged artwork will receive a ribbon.  Remember, bringing in an artwork for the ONS is a defensive move as the judge is chosen from those that do NOT bring in a piece.  How's that for an unveiled threat!

Members Gallery
Members, please take a look at our website's Members Gallery page.  Most of our members have submitted an artwork image to put on the PAL website. Everyone else, please send me one of your images to put in our members gallery. We'd like to show the world your wonderful art. Also, include information about your artworks such as medium(s). Just a short sentence... look at the couple of members that have more than their name displayed. Send your image to if you need help with getting your image ready, call Mike Bessler @ 630-667-5174.
