September 5th, 2013 we had our fist meeting at the new Pocono Mountain Library. The library has been very generous in allowing us to hold our meeting there every month as well as giving us dedicated wall space to share artwork throughout the year. PMAC has donated the art hanging system to be used throughout the building as our way of saying Thank YOU!
Down to earth members willing to share knowledge and lend a hand.
Come Share Yours!
Always a successful event !!!
Thanks to all hard work by the chairpersons and all the artists and artisans who participate.
Looking forward to Thanksgiving weekend 2018.
On June 22, 2017 members of the PMAC attended a panel discussion at Northampton Community College on Art In The Marketplace. Here are highlights from the meeting led by three presenters for artists entering the marketplace:
ESU Professor and Director of Madeline Powers Art Gallery:
-Try new things
-Travel & get inspired
-A good portfolio & website
-Donate selective works
-visit exhibitions, shows, etc.
-Organize contacts, finances
Santa Shillea - Gallery Curator
Pricing your work-consider length of time it took to do the work as well as what the market will bear.
Bartering for artwork is normal in the marketplace of selling & buying.
Nezka Pfeifer - Curator of Everhart Museum of Scranton
Consider your audience when presenting exhibits of your work.
A proposal was made by President Nancy Pitcher, that the Pocono Mountain Arts Council adopt the Mountain Center in Tobyhanna as our community service project.
The activities involving this purposal will include, but not be limited to the following:
- Renovating the art classroom space in the building.
- Purchasing furniture for the art room and suggest a budget of $1,500.
-Donate monies for the center to purchase art supplies and suggest a budget of $500.
-Donate services such as teaching particular art classes or seminars in the center.
