Cambridge Art Association
The Cambridge Art Association (CAA) began in 1944 when a group of artists came together to auction their art as a way of contributing to the war effort. Led by the director from the local high school, they rented a basement space in Harvard Square, laid floor board on a dirt floor, installed partitions and lighting, advertised for members, and opened a gallery. Soon they were offering classes and presenting regular exhibits. Today, the Cambridge Art Association consists of approximately 500-juried artist members--photographers, printmakers, painters, sculptors, textile artists, and glassmakers and a supporting group of Friend Members. The purpose of the organization, while constantly evolving as artists' needs change, also remains much the same as it was in the 40's: to enhance the quality of the community by exhibiting art, supporting local artists, and creating diverse opportunities for art education and art appreciation.
My clay was very useful, and I put it to work a lot; however, after a month, you could tell it was drying out. It's as hard as a rock now. I reccomend getting a smaller container to use in a small period of time!
I'm not a stencil artist but a silversmith. I have several of the 1" brushes, and they are perfect for sweeping my bench. I use the brushes to sweep the silver and gold filings off my bench, and they do a superb job of cleaning loose metal bits off my projects. I don't like to use any other brushes. I use the smaller ones ( the 1/2" and 3/8") for gently cleaning wax models and jewelry in progress. These brushes have greater control, stiffness and yet pliable bristles that does the job very well. I'm sticking with these brushes for a very long time.
