Eldorado Arts & Crafts Association Member Activities

Meetings

Eldorado Arts & Crafts Association (EACA) general membership meetings are held at the Eldorado Community Center Classroom and are open to all EACA members. Meetings are generally held on the third Thursday of the month six to seven times a year at 7:00pm. They are informative, social and educational, many times featuring an artist’s work and techniques. Meetings are publicized a month in advance in the newsletter.

Shop Talk

Shop Talk is our educational event for members. It is usually held on a Wednesday morning five to six times a year. The programs reflect the broad interests and talents of our members. Besides visiting the studios of members and hearing a talk about their process we have also visited museums, local art exhibits, the backstage tour of Santa Fe Opera, and more. Dates and times are announced in the newsletter.

Our next Shop Talk event will take place on Tuesday November 12th, 2019. We will be visiting the annual exhibition of works by the Santa Fe Book Arts Group, which is held in the Capitol Rotunda gallery in Santa Fe. This exhibit has proved to be a big hit in the past. More details will follow in the upcoming EACA newsletter.
