The surest way to make it rain in Corrales is to plan a CSA pot-luck picnic two months beforehand.  I was concerned about the June heat but never dreamed we would have so much (glorious) rain.  In spite of the cancellation, it’s still a wonderful sharing and networking idea so we’ll try again after the summer heat and monsoons are less threatening.

I hope you will come to the next General Membership meeting, Wednesday, July 11, 6 pm at the Corrales Arts Center (4940 Corrales Road).  A number of you have suggested CSA run informal get-together on a variety of subjects, such as how to post on Instagram or how to market better for CAST.  We want to know what interests you so please join us at the meeting.

Now for an update on the partnership with Corrales Historical Society.  An Ad Hoc Committee was created at the last General Membership meeting and has been very busy working on the two joint projects.  CSA has stepped in to partner with CHS to organize and run the annual Fine Art Show in the Old Church, always held during Balloon Fiesta week.  For those of you who have entered before, there is a major change in the jury process.  No longer will you need to haul your framed pieces to the Old Church to be juried.  All CSA members can expect to get an email soon with detailed information on entering the show.  Stay tuned.

The other joint project is the Holiday Fine Art/Craft show at the very end of November.  Both CHS and CSA have run their own shows the same weekend but this year we will be working together.   We are working on making this a bigger and better venue.  In addition to spaces in the Old Church, we have been talking with Casa San Ysidro and it’s looking good…  More news on that as things firm up

I hope your creative side is overflowing with ideas.  And that your swamp cooler is working well so you can spend more time expressing that creative side.

CSA Puts Out the Call for Three Positions

CSA has a few positions open.  We still need a Treasurer.  We have an excellent accountant, so the job really is depositing monies, writing checks, and coordinating the monthly financial report with said accountant.  Give Diane Cutter a call if you are interested.  The organization also needs a webmaster and newsletter editor.  If you are interested, contact Ken Duckert:  kenduckert91@gmail.com.
