MHAAA: Newsletter - February 2019
Included in this Newsletter: Box of Art | Driftless Historium Member Showcase | MHAAA Quarterly Meeting | Social Media

There is still time to bring us your "Box of Art" item(s). We need many more items valued at $10 minimum. But you are free to contribute something of greater value. It's up to you. We currently have items from 8 members, valued at a total of $305.50. We'd like to bring that total up to $500 if possible. We have over 30 members so this should be easy to do.

Please deliver your item to Heidi Clayton this Monday, February 4th between 5-7pm, at Center Ground Studios, 302 E. Lincoln Street, Mount Horeb, WI 53572 (608-513-1897 ). Email an image of your item (including value, quantity/size, and media) to Tamlyn at .

Major prize artists - Audrey Handler & Richard Fayram - please don't feel you have to do more. You have already been very generous. But do please deliver your raffle prize artworks. (Photo shown is of last year's "box.")
