Calendar:

On Thursday, September 8, we are invited to Janie Tigert’s for a potluck dinner at 6:30.  Plan to bring a favorite dish, and let her know (831-3111) by the 7th if you can make it.  Directions: take exit 139 (33rd Street in Edmond) off I-35 and go east to Air Depot.  Take Air Depot north ½ mile to Whitetail Run; you will be turning east.  Stay on it until you come to the end of the road (about ¼ mile) and you’re there: her address is 6000 Whitetail Run.  (If you’re coming south on I-35, exit at 15th Street and turn south on Air Depot for ½ mile).  This is always an enjoyable evening – be there if you can!

Member news:  

From Kristen Abramson: “I am continuing my internship with Jocelyn Russell in Norman on the Audubon monument project for the zoo in New Orleans. We are working on a bull elephant, currently getting suspended for putting on the legs! I am learning so much about the monument-making process.”…  Rosalind Cook informs us that she and Denise Ford recently sold a second casting of their joint three life-size figure commission for the family owners of Cancer Treatment Centers of America.  Also: Rosalind created and had fabricated stainless steel awards for the executives who graduate from the training provided by Half Time Institute out of Dallas. These awards will be given bi-annually from now on. (“This is a Christian Ministry that takes mostly executives who are facing retirement and does assessments as to their passions and gifts and guides them into very significant ministries or ways to continue to give in the second half of their lives.  I have spoken at their institutes several times as my sculpting came in my forties.  Many of these executives find entrepreneurial adventures with their families such as starting manufacturing companies in third world countries that take women out of prostitution and poverty.  It is about making a difference in the second half of life.”)  …From Heather Kaiser: “ I am thrilled to report that my sculpture ‘Aketcheta’ Warrior was selected by the Ft. Concho Museum board members to receive the Arrowhead Award at the American Plains Artist show in Texas this year and has made it into the upcoming Bosque show.” … Patsy Lane picked up her latest work at the Bronze Horse last week, titled "Feeling Lucky Today?"  And she is sending work to "The Party" at the Museum of Western Art in Kerrville, TX, this week.  “Was honored to be accepted again.”  …Tallgrass Art Gallery will have a Pop-up Tent at the Postoak Lodge and Retreat Wine & Jazz Festival on Saturday, September 3rd.  Artists representing Tallgrass Art Gallery include OSS members Kristen Abramson, Pamela Winters and Larry Waid. (Thank you for the news, Pamela!)  …From Burneta Venosdel:  “My sculpture ‘Toltic Player' was accepted in America Women Artists Annual Juried Show in Bennington, VT next month.  I have fulfilled requirements for Signature Status in the AWA organization and have been invited to join this fine organization.  Also, working as co-chair with Bruce Carter of Tallgrass Art Gallery along with the American Plains Artists Show Chair, we have a commitment from Jim Franklin to teach his Bas Relief workshop at the beginning of the APA Signature Show in Pawhuska in March. Limit is 10 and open to APA members only unless unable to fill and then will be open to OSS members. We will use a waiting list enrollment and deadline to be announced. I will make more information available soon. Thank you to Jim for offering his talents to this organization.”
