All artists always welcome at our weekly meetings! Our meetings are casual and friendly and are a great way to meet other artists. Join us!
IMPORTANT! Please enter the building through the SIDE DOOR, not the front door. Thank you.
Little Hamilton is a little street very near 4th Ave. S.
The location is in a mixed residential / industrial neighborhood. The building has the address numbers painted on the side, a door with the Firebrand logo, and an iron studio next door.
If you are driving down 4th ave s, turn right onto Humphreys and then a very immediate left onto Little Hamilton. Building will be on the left near the end of the street. There will likely be a small school bus parked in front of the building.
on the street. or there is a parking lot on the side of the building (an automotive company on the corner)
Have an extra folding chair? You may want to bring it just in case.

Way back in 1996, Untitled members created 100 unique books comprised of sheets of original artwork.
The books were created as a group effort and were sold to raise money for the group.
Since this book was so cool, we are planning to recreate a 2009 version.
At last week's meeting we discussed the best way to accomplish this goal.
Many Untitled Members were interested in participating in this project to be completed in time to sell books at Untitled's 2009 Glow Show. Shelly (and Tina?) is heading this up and will need a witty title for editor.
So far we have come up with these guidelines, though they are not set in stone yet:
- A sign up page will be created on Survey Monkey
- Pages contributed by artists will be 12" x 12"
- Artists do a set number of pieces (75-100?)
- Contributing artists keep one book each.
- All remaining books will be designated to raise funds for Untitled.
- Untitled will pay for binding supplies.
- 25 to 50 artists needed to participate.
- Artists to sign up on Survey Monkey by:
- Art work to be completed by:
- Turn in work by:
- Book-assembly dates:
- Have books completed by:
Other things to consider:
- What kinds of binding do we want to consider?
- Where will we collate and bind books?
- Who will write the Intro and create Index and Table of Contents?
- How much will be charge per book?
- Participating artists may want to look into the option of ordering 12"x12" paper in bulk.
