The Anaheim Art Association was established in 1963 to promote an understanding and appreciation of fine art amoung the citizens of the community, encourage advanced study in art, and provide art exhibits
and competitions of interest to its members.
This year Disneyland Resort will be giving us 4 Day-Hopper Disneyland Tickets (a one day visit for both parks) to raffle so we can raise the money to support our costs at the MuzeO. Only 200 raffle tickets have been printed for the sale. The raffle tickets are $5.00 each. Drawing will be at the Awards presentation of our 54th Annual Open Exhibition on Oct 29
(you do not have to be present to win). Value is almost $700.
Please bring exact amount/amounts for your purchase!!!

Here we are into our new year! We had a great turn-out for
our 54th Open Juried Exhibition. Thank you to everyone who
volunteered their time at the take-in and afterwards also. Tony
was there through Thursday orchestrating the painting hanging
(and more) by MuzeO hires who did an excellent job.
Me, I am still doing Data Entry! Rick Neal, our treasurer, is putting
all the numbers together for us. Our Show opened Friday September 1st with 200 pieces
of Art Work hanging. This is the best Exhibition I have witnessed.. Don’t miss seeing this
We need some artists to sign up for sitting (docent) at the MuzeO. I think we have about
7 open afternoon slots (1:30 TO 5) in October If you have a painting hanging and didn’t
work at the take-in you must sit. You will be called or please call me to save me the time
away from painting. You are welcome to sit even if you didn’t enter.
Some new Events/Meetings for our New Year.

Our summer Life Drawing workshops were a success in June and July. Thank our

Thank you again for those who have helped make our 54th Annual Juried Open
Exhibition a success!
About 50 Disneyland raffle tickets (only 200 to be sold) left for the 4 Day Hopper tickets
donated by Disneyland. The tickets are $5.00 each. We will sell more at our September
meeting. These funds from the sale of tickets will be applied toward our MuzeO costs. For
the last 3 years Disney had donated $1,000 for our Open. Now we must sell tickets so we
can match this amount.
We will need people to volunteer for a committee & committee leaders for 2018. In the
near future I will be posting these committees. Step up and have a say in your association
and help the few who do it all. We will have to eliminate events if we do not get more
volunteers. WE NEED YOU!
