ACE Monthly meetings are a great place to learn about what's happening in ACE and meet other ACE members. The basic agenda of every member meeting is:
* Officer's Report - learn about our current finanes
* Upcoming Activities - reports by committee members on upcoming ACE events
* President's Address
* Member's Address - any member can announce their upcoming exhibits or anything else of interest to the community
* Refreshments - Coffee and goodies!
* Featured Speaker Presentation
We have openings for future speakers for ACE events. The goal of our speaker series is to share and educate ACE members and guests about artists, techniques, opportunities, and topics related to the arts.
Call for artists!
The Riverside Festival of the Arts is holding a contest for graphical art for the promotion of the 2014 Riverside Festival. Artwork will be used for the poster, program, ads and other publicity promoting the event. Artists may submit either new or existing work for the contest.
A $200 prize will be awarded to the selected artist.
Guidelines: Any two dimensional medium is acceptable. Work should be at least 8.5 x 11 inches, and suitable for reproduction as a poster. Larger work is better, since it can be reproduced with higher resolution for the poster. Artwork should be of sufficient quality for reproduction, and preferences will be given to work that looks good both in the original color and as a black and white image.
Artwork remains the property of the artist, but the RFA will have the rights to use images of the work for the promotion of the festival, and may alter the image in order to add titles and information about the event.
We look forward to seeing some new and interesting art for this year's festival from our members!
Shad Happens: Ace Gallery at the Quadrant
Opening reception May 19th 12 to 3 pm. Drop off April 9th at the Quad 1 to 3.
The Lehigh Valley Vanguard:
“The Lehigh Valley Vanguard is a progressive visual and literary symposium of Lehigh Valley intellectuals and artists. We try to feature narratives that speculate on the state of our current society and the betterment of its future: locally and globally.”
What we are looking for:
We are currently seeking visual art work, op-eds, book reviews, short fiction and poetry that fits the mission of the publication for inclusion in our introductory issue, launching April 2014.
The Vanguard is primarily an online publication. However, in an attempt to preserve the intellectual culture of our time in an archive, with every online issue 100 print copies will be issued. This will serve as a time capsule of our regional, progressive intellectual culture.
Op-eds and book reviews should be around 1500 words. Short fiction will be evaluated case-by-case.
Poetry should be around 200 lines or less.
Art work should be submitted with an artist statement and a description of the artwork.
This is an opportunity for subversive artists and writers seeking an outlet in alternative new media. The Vanguard is sponsored and cross promoted by Raging Chicken Press.
Deadline to submit: March 17th, 2014
Fifty ACE members have registered for the Art Tour. Registration is now closed and layout for the brochure and poster is in development. A kick-off event in Centre Square is planned for

January 11 – March 26th in the Easton Hospital Gallery.
About the show, the artist states: “After years of creating realistic, figurative paintings in oil, I decided to playfully explore pastels. Drawing my inspirations from models who play at dress up, I began distorting their posture and transforming their features into cartoonish facades clothed in fur, feathers, and lace, enacting the role of someone else. Each model portrays an innocence that is poignant, yet playful and alluring. “
