If you have not used Zoom before, it is the leading app for on-line and virtual meetings. You will be able to see yourself and all attendees. You will automatically be on mute once you link in. By a raise of hands, the presenter will be able to call your name, which at that time you can unmute yourself and ask your questions. No worries – it is actually very simple and user-friendly.

TRAG announcement for June meeting

Welcome TRAG members!  In light of ongoing concerns with COVID-19 and out of consideration for our membership’s health and wellbeing, our June 8th meeting will be offered virtually via Zoom from 7 pm to 8:30 pm.  I am hoping you will join us, as this will be a meeting dedicated to you and hope you will find it a fulfilling way to connect with your fellow artists during this unprecedented time.

The theme of this meeting : “Artists In Residence !”

Our agenda for June 8, 2020: 

  • 7:00pm to 7:30 pm – Board member reporting and information about the Guild, gallery, plans going forward for TRAG
  • 7:30 – 8:00 pm – Members sharing their art.  We invite each member to showcase and share a piece you have been working on during this “artist in residence” time.  As you show us your work, let us know what inspired you and a little about your process creating your piece.
  • 8:00 – 8:30 pm – Membership sharing – open forum.  We invite you to share your experiences, thoughts, and worries over the last few months sheltering in; how it has affected you; changed, perhaps the way you are doing your work.  Please consider limiting the time of sharing to within 5 minutes, so that all, who would like to participate will have an opportunity to do so.
  • Finally, think about what you would like to see for future meetings and how often you would like to meet virtually. Likely, this will be our new way of connecting with our members in the months to come d/t COVID-19 and the TRAG community’s desire to keep everyone safe.

I look forward to seeing you all there for this very special event.  Look for the link to the Zoom meeting in the upcoming emails.  I so appreciate you all; wishing you well and staying safe.

Vice President, Three Rivers Art Guild

Virtual Guild Meeting – the Use of Instagram and Facebook for the Artist

by Kristina Browning
Monday April 13th 7:00 pm

If you’ve noticed some wonderful updates and changes to TRAG’s Facebook and membership Group Facebook lately, that is the work of Kristina Browning. In addition to a degree from the Art Institute of Seattle plus a successful Real Estate business and a podcast about home aesthetics, Kristina is highly knowledgeable in all kinds of social media marketing. You may also be familiar with Kristina’s own website, Facebook page and Instagram feed called Oregon City Guide which she created to promote and enhance all things about Oregon City.

TRAG is extremely fortunate to have Kristina give a Virtual Presentation through Zoom regarding the use of Instagram and Facebook and how to use this to promote your Art. Kristina plans to start from the basics and then open up the presentation for questions. If you have not used Zoom before, it is the leading app for on-line and virtual meetings. You will be able to see yourself and all attendees. You will automatically be on mute once you link in. By a raise of hands, the presenter will be able to call your name, which at that time you can unmute yourself and ask your questions. No worries – it is actually very simple and user-friendly.

COVID-19 update

Due to the health issues surrounding the COVID 19 virus, and in order to protect both our members and customers, the TRAG Gallery will be closed until further notice. Additionally, the April 13th public Guild meeting at the Pioneer Center will also be cancelled. Instead, there will be a virtual Guild meeting about the use of Instagram and Facebook for the artist. All other meetings are subject to further notice. Please take care of yourselves and stay well. Let’s take this opportunity to delve into our passions and do what we love – create art and bring some much needed joy in a time we need it most.

Live Facebook video of TRAG Monthly meetings

Don’t miss a TRAG monthly meeting.     

It’s hard to make every monthly meeting for multiple reasons. You could be on vacation, wrapped up in a blanket with a cold or don’t care to drive late at night.  As Public Relations Coordinator for TRAG we will  start live video streaming of  each monthly meeting.  Our Vice-president Jeanne Cardana is planning some exciting and interesting speakers for the upcoming months.    

You will need to be logged in to  Facebook  group “Members of Three Rivers Artist Guild Group” on the second Monday every month at 7 pm.    

The live sessions will not be interactive for  member who are watching by live feed. The live video will be of the speakers of the meeting. The audience will not be video’d unless the camera is adjusted for filming. All  audience members present at a meeting will be advised of the live feed so to give or decline permission of possibly being in the video. There may be portions of the meeting when audience questions / participation may occur. The time limits of the meeting may not allow for all verbal conversation to be perfectly clear and legible for the video. 

Watch live stream or check back to review under the video tag. These videos will then be saved to the same TRAG members only Facebook page under videos. 

Our first live video trial will be March 9th at 7 pm
