‘Tis that time of the year – new art calendars are being published for 2010. Before you purchase yet another Impressionist calendar, consider first the local productions that support local charities or art associations:
Irving Art Association has published its 2nd annual calendar with 13 reproductions of artwork by IAA members. The price is only $12 for a standard-size calendar (full color on 8&1/2″ x 11″ size cardstock which opens to a 11″ x 17″ format). To purchase or see more artwork, see the IAA website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Trinity Arts Guild is not doing one this year but is planning one for it’s 50th Anniversary in 2011. There will be a juried artists’ competition in April. website: trinityartsguild.org
Visual Arts Society of Texas (VAST) offers a desktop calendar in a jewel case and sells for $10 including tax. The 2010 version was juried by Laurie Weller and includes 12 VAST artists. To obtain, call Jo Williams @ 940.383.1092 or email at email@example.com. website: vastarts.org
CityArtCal produces a calendar engagement book — 100 local artists are included in a 128 page, tabbed desk art calendar. One hundred color plates – each artist has his own page and there is an artist directory included. It retails locally for 19.95 at a number of retail stores: the DMA, MAC, Muse Bookstore, A Paper Affair, Chocolate Secrets, etc. and we give thousands to local art students – junior college and senior high school students to encourage them to pursue their artistic visions.
