We discussed the survey results, reiterating that we all must ask for what we want of the Circle. The combined Austin and San Antonio circles are meeting on the 2nd Saturday of the month. The January and March meetings have already been scheduled in Austin and will remain unchanged. In May, it will bounce to San Antonio. The host gets to decide the time the meeting starts.
We then went on to "Tells," which were more art business related. A lively discussion ensued. One of the outcomes is a plan to incorporate formal critique sessions into the meetings. It will start when we line up a facilitator hopefully for the March meeting, but knowing that logistics will have to remain flexible.
A group challenge was made for those that like having deadlines to keep them focused. The word that was randomly picked for inspiration is "covert."
Afterwards, we had our "Shows" and then ended the meeting with a quick tour of Laurie's studio.
It was wonderful to see the group, which has been meeting for a year now, really gelling and ready to take the group up a notch with more activities and articulating individuals' needs of the Circle.

The Cross Timbers Artists Guild is a group of artists who live in the north Texas area (near Dallas and very close to the DFW Airport--primarily Flower Mound, Argyle, Copper Canyon, Double Oak and Grapevine). Starting on Saturday morning and continuing on Sunday, you can visit any or all of the artists’ homes and see their work. There is no fee, you just drive from home to home and visit as long as you’d like. It’s quite a varied group, with art ranging from pottery, painting, stained glass, fine furniture, woodturning, sculpture, weaving, and, of course, quilting. Our primary mission is to inform the community about the art that is happening right in their neighborhood, and to encourage artistic endeavors of all kinds. We have a relationship with some of the local public schools and encourage the students to come on the tour, too. So if you are going to be in our area, please visit us.
Our website has a map and lots of information about our group: http://www.crosstimbersarts.com/
To start the weekend’s activities, beginning at 7:00 Friday evening, we will have a reception at our gallery, which is located in The Shops at Highland Village, northwest corner of 407 and 2499 (the gallery is next door to James Avery Jewelry). Please come by for some refreshments and live music.
