Approval of Minutes: Minutes of the June 16th meeting were approved as submitted.
Treasurer’s report: Marilyn reported that she turned in receipts and requests for payment for grant #08-6 for $436.25 for the Garden Gala, under budget by $63.75. The total amount approved is $3,600.00, year-to-date.
Steve is putting the word about to locate strolling musicians for the Great Granville Picnic, and will see that an article is placed in the Sentinel. He has spoken to some musicians and will continue to do so. Steve will be checking on how vacancies on the commission will be filled and also some budget issues. Carol Whitt continues to work on the website, and members should review it at http://www.granvillearts.org/ and send comments to Steve.
Grant request # 08-9: Carol Whitt requests up to $500.00 for the "Outsider Art" activity at the Great Granville Picnic. The main activity would be a group banner, for which art materials and supplies are needed. Money is also requested for compensation for two artists for their prep time and for their teaching time. An overstuffed picnic basket would also be constructed. Dick moved and Kyle seconded to approve grant # 08-9 to provide up to $500 for the project; the motion passed unanimously.
There was discussion about the artists using grant money giving credit to GAC, and Dick suggested that we have the image of the GAC logo readily available on our website so that artists can add a statement such as "Sponsored in part by the Granville Arts Commission" to appropriate items.
Next Meeting: ______, 2008 upstairs at the Village Hall.
Adjournment: The meeting was adjourned at 7:30 PM.
