2019 Annual Member Meeting
June 22, 2019
We thank all that attended this year’s BOMH Annual Member Meeting. Held at the Boone County History and Culture Center in Columbia on June 22, the Professional Development event included a morning Mock Jury session moderated by Diana Moxon, prior director of Art in the Park in Columbia, and Jeane Vogel, Director of the Webster Art Fair. We’ve received several comments from members who attended that this informative program was instrumental in their success during the Summer 2019 Jury Session.
During lunch, the Annual Member Meeting was held. Board members and committee members reported on the status of many of BOMH’s programs, including the Jury program, Visiting Artist program, the 2019 Spring Series and more. Members who received Juried Member status during the past year received their Juried Member certificates, and Tresa Killion was announced as the winner of the 2019 BOMH Professional Development Grant.
After lunch we turned to a topic near and dear to all – Strategies for Pricing Your Art. A presentation was made by Don Kelley, Jeweler, Kelarts Studio; Brenda Beck-Fisher, Painter, Program Director, Hannibal Arts Council; and Roy Muenks, Potter, hear The ART Studio. The presentation was well received by attendees, and they requested that we post it on the web site, so here it is in .pdf format: 2019 Strategies for Pricing Your Art
