Ridgefield Guild of Artists
Established in 1974 by fourteen local artists, the Ridgefield Guild of Artists is a non-profit volunteer organization, open to all, which promotes the visual arts and arts education by providing high quality gallery space for exhibition, art classes for children and adults, opportunities for artist-in residency programs, and art lectures on-site and in collaboration with other cultural organizations. Located in a turn of the century barn on Halpin Lane off Prospect Ridge Road in Ridgefield, Connecticut, the Guild contains three large gallery rooms and a studio loft. The Guild is governed by an elected board of directors and new members are always welcome.
I love these! I've been using them by the dozen as journals. I write in black fountain pen, and there's no bleed-through of the ink from one side of the page to the other, and the paper has no trouble with any of the adhesives I've used (tape, Zots, glue) to attach photos and such. Covers are a great weight, and the wire binding seems like it's made for the Ages.
I can't draw a stick figure, so I haven't actually used the books for their intended purpose (i.e. sketching), but the paper has a great feel, and, if it'll stand up to liquid ink on both sides, it should work like a dream with other media.
I actually joined Mr. Art as a VIP because I was buying so many of these. There aren't too many products anywhere of which I'm this fond.
I have 2, and highly recommend this great product. Anyone painting on canvas should have them. Its a simple idea with a funny name and a reasonable price. It makes "schlepping" a wet canvas so much easier. With 2 you can carry 2 paintings back to back.
