IN THIS ISSUE: Garage Sale Fundraiser | Spring Art Tour Space| Dane Arts Grant | Sponsor Drive | Quarterly MHAAA Meeting | Social Media
GARAGE SALE FUNDRAISER
Our Garage Sale fundraiser was a huge success - we raised $960!
Next time you see them, please thank Heidi and John for letting us use their Center Ground Studios location - and for all their hard work in organizing this event. And thanks to everyone else who helped with donations, set up, booth sitting, and take down. We are considering doing the village wide garage sale next April as well. But that will depend on who is willing to let us use their location and how many volunteers we get. More later.
SPRING ART TOUR SPACE

If you or an artist you know is interested in the tour but still needs a space, there is still space at the Marling Barn in Mount Horeb. Please contact Karen at 608-335-9491 or kwatsonnewlin@tds.net . Other artists planning to exhibit there are Karen Watson-Newlin, Sue Schuetz, and Christine Echtner.
DANE ARTS GRANT

We have exciting news to share. We are being awarded a grant from Dane Arts! Our awards from them had been gradually dwindling over the past several years. Tamlyn changed up the grant proposal this year and must have done something right because last year's grant has jumped from $900 to $2,500 for our 2020 Spring Art Tour!
SPONSOR DRIVE

Thanks to Tamlyn Akins, Rick Ross, Mikel Kelley, and Peggy Zalucha for helping to get the Sponsor Drive mailing in the mail. We get a significant amount of support from our area businesses - usually between $3,000-$4,000. Last year's sponsors shown above/left.
