Committee reports:

 

BHCA Gallery at the Gamble Mill: Lower than anticipated attendance at the reception for the current show was attributed to the snowstorm and spring break. Paul met the executive director of the Southern Allegheny Museum of Art, who attended and applauded the show. Paul also reported a very favorable response on the part of local media to the show. Coming up at the gallery is a collection of children's art, "Art of the Bellefonte Schools, put together by Karen Baker. This show will start on April 21, with a reception on Tuesday, April 24"', and will run through June 2"d. N.B. The Art Alliance has a new website: artalliancepa.org

 

Summer Sounds: A tentative schedule has been drawn up, with four definite dates so far. Colina's new idea is to hold a poster contest for the summer concert series. The artist of the winning entry would receive a monetary prize, and BHCA would print copies of the poster to sell at the concerts. Colina is researching the logistics and costs.

 

Film Forum: No report.

 

Library Concerts: A flutist duo will perform on the 25th of April.

 

Victorian Christmas: No report.

 

Local Government Grants: No report.

 

Old Business:

Sculpture contest: Jim presented his research efforts to Colina.

 

Corporate Sponsors: Sam is ready to prepare a new BHCA brochure, which we will need whenever we are ready to approach potential sponsors.

Next meeting: The next meeting will be held on Friday, April 20th at 7:30 p.m. Location TBA. Adjournment: Dave moved to adjourn the meeting at 9:50 p.m. Paul seconded; motion carried.
