Minutes from the 10/05/11 Meeting

Call to Order

Review of Past meeting:

New Officers were Elected

President: Dan Heskamp
Treasurer: Jon Arends
Secretary: Daniel Jasa

Brainstorming for Print Sale:

We established three (and only three) areas to focus on for the print sale fundraiser:

1. Sale of artwork. We will sort through the print stack next meeting to eliminate prints which are un-sellable. Dan Heskamp volunteered to collect artwork from members who have new work to submit.

2. Art Auction. There are a few prints from visiting artists that could fetch a high price.

3. Press Demonstration. We decided to run a press at the print sale. We'll offer 5-10 designs to print for people on demand.

Date for Print Sale:

We decided to run the print sale the two days before, and the day of our 4th street show reception (the 15th, 16th and 17th of November). On the 17th, we will start the sale at the VAB, and move it to 4th street to set up before the reception.

Collection of Dues

Treasurer Jon Arends continues to collect dues. If you have not already, pay him your dues of $25.

Minutes from the 1/28/11 Meeting

Welcome back to all! Here's to a great year!

First Order of Buisness: "No Name, No Slogan"

- The club portfolio exchange is now ready to be picked up! Those who participated in "No Name, No Slogan" may pick up their portfolio in the printshop!

Second Order of Business: Semesterly Club Dues

- It's that time again to pay your semesterly dues of $25. It is with this money that the club orders supplies, organizes fundraisers, gets participating members to conferences, brings in visiting artists and so much more! So please to all members, pay them within the next 2 weeks.

- Checks are made out to Adrian Chin. You may turn them into Kyle, Adrian or Jessica.

Third Order of Business: Undergrad Participation

- All undergrad printmaking majors, the club would like to invite you all to attend club meetings, fundraisers and events and upcoming conferences!

-If you have any questions about the club and what we do, feel free to ask members if you see them in the shop (there's also a grad in almost every print class this semester) as well as your instructors, Mike Barnes, Ashley Nason or Anna Kenar.

Fourth Order of Business: Printbanger's Ball/SGC

- Mike Barnes' press, Rockpile Press, would like to team up with Bandolier Press for Tom Huck's Printbanger's Ball during this year's SGC conference in St. Louis!!

- This means coming together as a club to create merchandise to sell at the booth. Some ideas that were shared at the meeting were: t-shirts (duh), pennants, magnets, stickers, patches, totes, temporary tattoos, skate decks and decals.

- For all this merch we would print up some designs that would sell (not just Bandolier Press stuff).

- The club has agreed to meet every Friday until SGC (March 16th-19th) to put our heads together and get this merch cranked out. We expect some sort of effort put forth by every member since it will be a huge task!

- Also, don't forget to register for SGC ASAP!!!! Deadline is approaching!

Fifth Order of Business: Printpalooza!!

- Not really an order of business, but just wanted to say awesome job to Eric Fuertes and John Medina for kicking some ass at this weekend's Printpalooza in Evanston!

- Go here to see a video of the two of them with the infamous Dumbo Press!!
