Aloha WAG Members,
Our monthly newsletter has been sent via membership email, downloaded onto our Facebook page (Windward Artists Guild) as well as posted here. We are very interested in what our membership is up to creatively so please email me (Carol Moore) at CMoore8506 (at) aol.com with your creative newsworthy events. Whenever you email someone from the WAG site, remember to format the email address appropriately. We always have to change the emails to resist SPAM, so simply replace (at) with @ and take out all spaces.

Edward “Ted” Clark has a mural project ongoing in his glass studio. Artist Sergio Garzon is creating indoor/outdoor/ceiling works of art in Ted’s facility. Ted extends an invitation to WAG members who would be interested in helping Sergio create a few murals as a community development program. If this opportunity speaks to your creative self, please contact Ted directly via email edwardclark (at) taongaglass.com to find out the particulars.
Cynthia Schubert Richmond expresses gratitude to WAG for the $500/yr. grant that the prison ministries, Total Life Recovery, receives for her art class. Cynthia has volunteered over the past two years teaching watercolor, following in (deceased at 91 years young) Ruth Pistor’s footsteps who taught for nine years. The financial help from WAG is so helpful for getting supplies that would otherwise come out of Cynthia’s pocket for which she is so very thankful. All art supply donations are gratefully accepted.
Marti Wiese-Rounds invites you to her new art exhibit (March-June 12) at Assagio’s Kailua featuring her batiks. The renovated Diamond Head Tower of the Hilton Hawaiian Hotel is now finished with acrylic works from Marti’s “Retro Hawaii” series on each floor in the elevator area.
