Treasurer’s Report Approval: A motion was made by Sandra Parrill to accept the report and was seconded by Andrew Batcheller. The motion was unanimously approved.

Daria Claiborne provided a final report on the Studio Tour. The event was considered an overall success. Saturday was busier than Sunday for most locations. Forty-four signature cards were returned and donated pieces have been distributed to the winners. Several winners have won in previous years as a sign that people are returning to the tour year after year.

Daria Claiborne questioned if JRAC possesses a sales tax exemption certificate. If any previous board member is aware of the existence, please contact Daria or joplinrac@gmail.com. Emily Rose volunteered to research what it would take for JRAC to obtain a certificate if we don’t already have one.

“The Eyes Have It” had a fantastic turnout at the reception with at least 60 people in attendance.

  • 1st place: Emily Rose

  • 2nd place: Ginger Copeland

  • 3rd place: Kurt Penland

  • Honorable Mentions: Jesse McCormick, Amber Mintert, Jade Henning

  • Best Adherence to Theme: Steve Head

Emerging Artist exhibit is hung and ready for viewing after the opening reception at Spiva. Judging will happen this week. For future Emerging Artist events that JRAC might host, a questionnaire will be supplied to artists to further verify that “emerging” qualifications are truly met by participants.

The next Think Tank will be at Daria Claiborne’s with a topic of how to get started in ceramics. A date and time will be confirmed as soon as possible.

It is time again for recruiting board members for the next term. Two current members’ terms will be up in 2023. Anyone interested in volunteering on the board can email joplinrac@gmail.com. Angel Brame will send an email to membership with a request for anyone interested to respond.

The Annual Meeting is approaching. Current plan is to have it at Spiva in January. Andrew Batcheller and Emily Rose will confirm the location. Emily Rose has started the powerpoint presentation. Brenda Hayes will create a FB event. Angel Brame will take minutes at the meeting and other chores will be assigned at the next board meeting.

The meeting was declared adjourned at 6:53pm by Andrew Batcheller. The next meeting will be on December 13th at 6pm at Andrew’s studio.

Angel Brame, Secretary

They were all very grateful for the generosity. The participant surveys noted that the event was great fun, a wonderful opportunity to get to know each other and learn from each other, and all looking forward to next year. Social media posts were the most effective in getting the word out on the event.

The 2022 Studio Tour is set for Nov 5 and 6 with 15 participants in seven locations. Emily Rose is still willing to work on publicity. Angel Brame offered to write the press release for the event. Daria Claiborne purchased arrow stickers for the current signs.

The purchase of arrow stickers for the yard signs was discussed and all agreed were a good solution. Emily Rose volunteered to work on publicity and PSA’s for the event using her list of media connections.

The watercolor workshop with Debbie Reed was well attended. Debbie offered her vast knowledge of watercolor techniques and history. It was a wonderful workshop full of inspiration. As a reminder, JRAC workshops are free to members and offered to non-members at a minimal fee. Workshops are a great way to learn new things and interact with other artists.

The JPD fundraiser has been planned and advertised. Andrew Batcheller will contact the local Police Union to discuss how to notify the families of the affected officers. Angel Brame will send an email to members requesting details of donated pieces for display planning purposes. The board will provide refreshments for the Friday reception but ask that any participating members consider bringing a dish as well.

Angel Brame gave an update on the Plein Air Paint Workshop and Event scheduled in cooperation with Spiva. Workshop is 9/9/2022 from 9am to 4pm. The workshop will be taught by Larry DeGraff with a cost of $120 per student. The competition will be held on 9/10 and 9/11/2022 with a cost of $35 for non-members and $25 for members.

Daria would like additional members on the committee to assist with the workload of planning and executing. Any member willing to help should respond to the joplinrac@gmail.com address. Daria will reach out to Steve Doerr for guidance on PSA’s.

The Emerging Artist event is being planned for November at Spiva Center for the Arts but may need to be flexible on the location as Spiva is in the midst of a possible move to their new location in late fall. Crowder is a possible second location.

The meeting was declared adjourned at 7:0pm by Andrew Batcheller. The next meeting will be on May 10th at 6pm at Andrew’s studio.
