the James Renwick Alliance

Originally uploaded by Scenic Artisan
I recently joined the James Renwick Alliance and went to my first meeting last night.

Like a lot of solid arts organizations they seem to be lacking in a younger membership base. I've found the same thing with the Washington Sculptors Group, of which i am a board member.

Anyway, we got a tour from their awesome curator Nicholas Bell and a great talk about a new glass sculpture they are acquiring.

I will also be participating in their James Renwick Alliance Day, a one day sale of artwork from the members.
