Are you still wondering what’s the deal with ACEOs?

These cool little pieces of original artwork are hot right now. Check out the final selection for our first month, themed “Illuminated Letters.”

Members can pick up a blank card  at our monthly meetings. Or feel free to use your own heavy card stock or paper sized 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. 

You have the ensuing month to complete the project and submit it in person at the following meeting.

Each month, a selection of nine (9) of the cards will be framed together and put up for sale on the Guild website, price TBD. Each artist will have a stake in the sale.

The framed piece will also be available for sale at all Guild shows until it sells.

The nine cards will also be added to our Zazzle Shop on various items. When sold as a group piece of art, the Guild will receive net proceeds from the sale.  When items are sold individually, the individual artist will receive the net proceeds from the sale.

To join in, become a member and come to our meetings.

Submit any questions you have here. Thanks!
