FIELD TRIP TO DALLAS: SMU MEADOWS ART GALLERY AND LUNCH WEDNESDAY, 22 JULY

FIELD TRIP TO DALLAS: SMU MEADOWS ART GALLERY AND LUNCH WEDNESDAY, 22 JULY
INVITATION to join the SWA watercolor society on a field trip.
The Meadows Gallery of Art at the Southern Methodist University (SMU) campus in Dallas promises to have an extraordinary art exhibit through the summer--The Abello Collection: A Modern Taste for European Masters. This is the only American venue for a very special Spanish Art exhibition. Since we haven’t travelled together since the Chihuli Glass/Dallas Arboretum field trip in 2013 I put together a trip from Fort Worth to Dallas. We will need 20 participants riding the bus to justify the rental. The total cost is $30 each to have a bus ride to and from, and admission to the museum which includes a tour by a docent for the exhibition (this is a special rate). While at the Meadows Gallery we can also enjoy their plaza and sculpture garden. Friends are invited also (we need to fill a bus!). 
DETAILS:
Wednesday, 22 July
Cowtown charter bus picks up at UNTHSC (University of North Texas Health Science Center) parking lot on the corner of Clinton, Camp Bowie and Montgomery Streets--a few block away from the Kimbell Museum and a map is on the SWA website. The bus leaves at 8:45 am and arrive SMU in time for 10:30 docent-led tour bus picks up at 11:45 to arrive Trinity Hall Irish Pub (all kinds of food--even vegan) and have lunch board bus 1:30 and arrive UNTHSC parking lot 2:45
Total cost per person:
$22 bus transport plus $8 admission and docent tour to museum (special discount tour price) Total: $30 each
Additional expenses: tip to driver at own discretion lunch will be paid individually. A headcount will be necessary before booking a bus. The deadline for reserving your seat is THIS WEEK! 
Thursday, 9 July to Darla Bostick (940.320.5660 or email: darlabostickart@gmail.com ) 
On Friday the bus will be reserved and arrangements made with the Meadows Gallery. Those who reserve first will be guaranteed a seat on the bus—the limit is 21 people. Monday, 6 July an invitation to other art associations will be made to fill empty bus seats. If someone reserves a seat, and does not show up, they will be held responsible for paying SWA their $22 bus fee. Our members are welcome to invite spouses, significant others or friends, but no young children please.
Because Darla lives in Denton, she will meet the group at the Meadows Gallery. A volunteer will be needed to oversee loading of the bus in Fort Worth. All monies from the Fort Worth bus group will be paid that morning to that volunteer.
Any SWA members not living in Fort Worth who plan to meet us in Dallas need to contact Darla. If you live in Fort Worth we hope you will help us fill the bus!
Call me now and help spread the word to our members!
