Greetings all!

These past few months have been a bit of a challenge for everyone. More for some than others. Dry Canyon Arts Association board members have been trying to keep up with our monthly meetings. So far, we have been fairly diligent. 

This past December, we had a board meeting at the new High Desert Music Hall in Redmond. It is a very comfortable area for meetings and events.

We have tentatively booked a few events, barring any unforeseen changes, all to be at the High Desert Music Hall, either inside or outside.

Board Meeting: January 14

Member meeting:

 January 28, February 25, March 25, April 2

May 13 at Mel Archer Studio, west of Redmond. (Directions later)

These meetings will be at approximately 6:30 PM. These dates have been “penciled” in on HDMH schedule.

We also have a few shows and events tentatively scheduled:

May 1:  Saturday Inside the building show 

July 24:  Saturday, outside in the parking lot, coinciding with the Bacon, Brew and Balloons event


September 25&26:  Saturday and Sunday, inside the building, coinciding with the Sister’s Studio Tour

There are also (4) show events through the Faith, Hope & Charity organization from June through September 2021. These events are signed up through their organization.

Our school grant that we got, has been put on an extension due to the school closures.

There are officer elections coming up this January. There are applications on the Dry Canyon website. 

Please feel free to jot down your opinions and helpful suggestions on our website contact page.

I am looking forward to moving forward into this year, all be it challenged with unknown suggested restrictions that may possibly come up.

Thank you for sticking with us. It is appreciated.

Kristi Stone, Chairman

We have several vacant board positions that need members to step up and step forward. Please visit our website for additional information and plan on attending the January meeting if you are interested!
