Meeting started @ 7:05 PM
Approval of minutes: Marilyn moved and Jurgen seconded to approve the amended minutes of January 16, 2014. Motion carried.
Treasurer’s report: Marilyn handed out the 2014 report; nothing had so far been paid out this year. Kyle moved and Jurgen seconded to accept the treasurer’s report.
Meg brought up the grant application form; aside from minor changes, the earlier-approved new range of $100 to $1000 will be shown and the revised grant application form will be posted online - on the GAC website as well as via the village website.
Lois will check with Mark Forman regarding the chamber rep on this commission.
Jurgen (re)contacted the Granville schools and Kendall to alert them to GAC funding available.
Kyle mentioned the excellent annual report prepared by Lois.
Grant # 14-04: “Garden Club Collectible Art Poster & Granville Garden Club History Collage” submitted by the Granville Garden Club. Members discussed the various parts of the application. Similar applications have been approved and even though we felt that this was again a good cause, we decided to split the grant application into part A and B.
Part A covers the artist fee and supply/material totaling $200. Part B requests $300 for the 70-year garden club history collage. Part B was not clear whether this was to be one or more collages and how they would be displayed and used.
Neal moved and Meg seconded to approve part A and table part B pending further clarification. Motion carried.
Grant # 14-05: “The tenth annual art exhibit” at the Bryn Du Mansion. This $1000 grant request is for the tenth annual art exhibit held at the mansion. Similar grants had been approved. There was a discussion of professional vs. amateur artists and how the GAC financial support would be displayed. Meg moved and Neal seconded; motion carried with Jurgen’s abstention due to being on the board of the Bryn Du Commission.
The next meetings are set for March 20 and April 16, 2014.
The meeting was adjourned at 7:50
