Edmond Art Association in Crisis!

If volunteers are not found to fill open board positions, the current board will dissolve. The association and all assets will be disposed of according to the by-laws. I urge you to donate a small amount of your time each month so that this organization that has been in existence for over thirty years can continue. If you feel that art is an important part of our community, give some of your time. Below is a list of the open opportunities. If you are uncomfortable taking on a position by yourself, ask a friend to share one with you. Monday, October 26 is the night we vote on a new board for next year; please contact me before then if you can give a little of yourself for art. If we all work together, we will have a vibrant and active organization for many years to come.
Please contact Tena Chiarchiaro at 503-6072 or

Call for Volunteers
Vacancies for EAA Board Positions are President , Vice President, Program Chairman, Fall Show Chairman, Spring Show Chairman, Secretary, Publicity Chairman, Web Site Chairman and Hospitality Chairman.
EAA is in desperate need of a President, someone with a passion and a desire to encourage art in the Edmond Community.

A Vice President is needed to assist the President and support the EAA programs.

There will be no Programs if EAA is not able to interest a Program Chairman who will invite professional artists to demonstrate their skills and techniques for the EAA monthly members' meetings.

There will be no more Outdoor or Indoor Art Shows sponsored by EAA if these chair positions are not filled.
A Secretary records the minutes of each EAA Board Meeting and this position is vacant.
A Publicity Chairman makes sure EAA activities receive radio and newspaper coverage.

A Web Site Chairman keeps the EAA web site updated. The web site is seen world wide.
EAA has volunteers for the positions of Exhibitions, Historian, Member-at-Large, Membership, Newsletter, and Hospitality. However, without a President, a Vice President, a Program Chairman, 2 Show Chairmen, a Secretary, a Publicity Chairman, and a Web Site Chairman, EAA will no longer be an organization. October 26 is voting time for new board members and so far only a few positions are filled. If others do not volunteer, EAA will dissolve and no longer exist. Please call Tena to offer your support and assistance at 405.503.6072. Let's make this a great year for the Edmond Art community.


  1. Hi Carolina, NICE BLOG !! I'm sorry to hear about your art assoc. We've had the same problem once or twice with our League of Roanoke Artists here in the mountains of SW Va. It's hard to find some people with the passion AND the time. It is so worth it...Have you given any thought to young people, maybe even high school?? Unforunately, our group is mostly senior citizens. It would be nice to have some young blood.
    I'm following your blog now!

  2. You have such a talent and Im sure you will be able to get plenty of volunteers!!! Do what your doing and spread the word!! Thats the easiest way and yes I agree check out at the high schools!!!
    Please come visit me at and enter my current giveaway. I try to have a new and AMAZING giveaway every Monday so I hope you decide to become a follower so you don't miss out!

Labor of Love

Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase,   Oil on 5 "x7"   Linen Panel SOLD  Private Collection in San Saba, TX First, I must say that everything I paint is because I absolutely love. I don't like to paint things that I don't find to be attractive to me for one reason or another. Sometimes it's sentimental reasons and other times it's as simple as beautiful colors or the texture. Either way, it's something that I want to capture and stare at for long periods of time. I want to study it and how it affects the environment around it, as in the case of Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase does. In that respect, I feel ALL my paintings are a labor of love.  More often than not, I have to create a painting, wipe it all down, and start all over again if something is just not working. Some never get completed and I just end up painting something totally different on that panel. Then there are some, that I just have to paint, no matter how much trouble they are giving

Roses, Chickens, and Bees

Still Life with Fantin's Roses ,  5"x7" Oil on linen Panel S OLD Still Life with Fantin's Roses ,  5"x7" Oil on linen Panel S OLD Cherries from Linda's Garden ,  5"x7" Oil on linen Panel S OLD My heart is filled with all your inspirational words. Thank you for the happy e-mails, the wonderful advice and sharing of resources, and your kindness and support all around. I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art. During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world. I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the broode
