Our next meeting is another in our "Artist Presents" series. 


CobbMtnArtists 2nd Wednesday Artist Presents

September 10 7pm, at Middletown Senior Center 21256 Washington Street, Middletown

Event is free and open to the public.

CMA is now meeting in the meeting room at the Middletown Senior Center, August 13, 7pm. Although one can see the center from Hwy 29, the address is 21256 Washington Street. 




Julie Kreis will be making a presentation at the next regular meeting or the Cobb Mt. Artists. 


Julie has been drawing since she was a small child, but has developed her current art forms later in her life.

She has traveled the globe extensively and during these trips she became interested in making jewelry and learning calligraphy. While traveling in Mexico Julie purchased jade and while in Myanmar (formally Burma) she bought some amber. She used these materials to fashion earrings and other jewelry.


She also taught kindergarten in Japan and while there studied under two Sensei (teachers) to learn the ancient art of calligraphy.


Using the skills that she learned and developed Julie now produces a variety of beautiful and unique earrings and bracelets. Her calligraphy centers around the production of scrolls using the Japanese/Chinese language characters which denote various creatures and or meanings. She also embellishes these characters with drawing to produce a unique blend of Asian and Western art on Cards.


Please join us for our September meeting to hear Julie tell us about her many travels and how she developed her unique art forms. She will be showing a variety of her work as well.


CMA has opened their membership to all of the arts, including music, writing, acting as well as the visual arts.
Open to all artists living in Southern Lake County, and to anyone interested in the arts.
And, if you think you are an artist, so do we!
Please join us for art soirees, sales venues, life drawing, and more. For membership info, contact Marge Bougas 928-6461,
