Calendar of Events
The meetings of the Guild are held the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM at the Boyer Gallery in the The Hill School Center for the Arts, located at 760 Beech Street, near the intersection of Beech and Sheridan Streets in Pottstown, PA.
They meetings are free and open to anyone interested in art.
Ellen Nelson, the Boyer Gallery Coordinator of The Hill School, spoke about her inspiration and methods for creating the art and installation, Phototropic, that has been on display in The Boyer Gallery of The Hill School this past month. Ellen is inspired by nature and is continually in wonder of the beauty to be found in it. It took 18 months to create the works for this show, which included a number of Lino prints totems of birds and other aspects of nature, a video of sunrises and sunsets, a drapery labyrinth with four pods in which to listen to soothing audio recordings. The pods reflected the four seasons. Ellen urged us to “be sure to create some works that are totally garbage; otherwise, you are not growing as an artist.

Guild Meeting, Members Show and Tell about some of their art work.
To Be Announced,
October 2018 (Rescheduled from cancelled March 2018 meeting)
Jim Ulrich, Mixed-media Artist and Member of the Dumpster Divers of Philadelphia,
Jim will show examples of his mixed-media assemblages and sculptures. These works incorporate both found materials and hand-fabricated components. His work varies from representational to purely abstract and some of it is functional. Jim will explain how the found objects catalyze an idea, and describe the varied processes and materials employed to refine those ideas into a final piece.
A Pittsburgh transplant, Jim’s work has been exhibited at Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Museum, Andy Warhol Museum and Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Reading’s Goggleworks, the National Watch and Clock Museum, the Phillips Museum of Art and the Berman Museum, just to name a few. He received an A.S. in Fine Arts from Allegheny County Community College, Pittsburgh, PA, and a B.A. in Studio Arts from University of Pittsburgh. In addition to his sculptures, Jim has done cover, inside editorial and spot art for a number of magazines and booklets.
