Reflections on the 5X15 Night

I would like to take this moment to thank all of those who made it out to the 5X15 night this past Monday.  We had a pretty good turn out of both artists and art adorers alike.  It is really cool to see so many of you taking an interest not only into this new community of ours, but also in some of the art that exists within our church.  So on behalf of Jeff, the artists who participated, and myself, thank you for your patronage.

Monday night Jeff mentioned that all of us in attendance were patrons of the arts for that evening, though we may not contribute financially like some art patrons, we were patrons by showing our encouragement and support to the artists who presented that evening.  This is such a valuable concept for us to consider, and one that I would like to urge all of you to continue in.  

One way we can encourage and support our fellow believing artists is at our community nights that happen the first Tuesday of every month at Octane and Carroll Street Cafe.  These groups meet at 8 on these nights and simply discuss what we have been working on recently and just to support one another in our creative efforts.  There is no judging or criticism, just a chance to get to know fellow artists a little better, talk about what inspires us in our particular crafts, and support one another.   The next community night is going to be July 7th, make plans to be there if you can.

As far as the next 5X15 goes, start looking for more information coming in the early fall.
