Welcome to the Evergreen Association of Fine Arts (formerly known as Eastside Association of Fine Arts). We invite you to explore our website and learn about membership, our shows and exhibitions, the Public Art Program, the EAFA Gallery at the Seattle Design Center, and of course, our monthly General Meetings.

Critique Meet Program

Rummage Sale - October 16th Meeting

We had a super meeting in September with encaustic artist Willow Bader showing us her brush techniques.
Next meeting is our Annual Rummage Sale to benefit our Signature Art  Fund. Bring your lightly used extra art items, priced for sale. We don't need to collect sales tax on these so the price you see is the price you pay. Bring items starting  at 9 AM to our regular meeting location in Bellevue.
During the rummage sale, 3 artists will be doing demonstrations of their work.
Our 2014 Juried Open Exhibition at the Seattle Design Center is accepting entries until Sept. 30th, using the online CaFE system. See the link under Shows and Exhibits. 
The volunteer show is up and ready to view from September 6th through November 1st. Come see the fine work by the members whose hard work makes our group a success.  
  We have plenty of volunteer opportunities, with Publicity Chair the current primary need, and we're also looking for a new Treasurer as Deanna has held this job for 3 years now and needs a break. We'll pay for Quickbooks training as needed. Contact any of your board members if you are interested. Also, we need a few gallery assistants for those who can't attend regular meetings but want to put in their volulnteer time helping behind the scenes with gallery tasks. A helper with Audio-Visual equipment at the meeting is also desired. I will be happy to train you on the items we use.
We now have an intern to serve as interim webmaster but will still have a need by year end for a volunteer who knows or is willing to learn the Joomla open source web development tool and help us keep our website updated. We have a small budget available to help pay for a few hours a month or so of work. Let me know if you might have any contacts interested. Thanks. 
As you can see, we have many great on-going programs but also need folks to step up and keep our group moving forward. Let any of your board members know if you have some of the skills we can use, or know others who might be interested. 


Happy art making.  
Stan Chraminski, EAFA President
