2015 NOIS Events


Start Creating!

Opening Reception:
Friday, September 11
6 - 9pm
at
The Art Gallery in Willoughby

4134 Erie Street, Willoughby, OH

The Selfie Show entries can be whatever you interpret the theme as. A self-portriat, someone else's self-portrait, an exploration of Narcissism, a selfish event, you get the idea.

The show is open to members in good standing, and must be artwork created specifically for this show and theme. As illustrators, we understand the challenge of deadlines and assignments, so this show will be advertised as a first showing of new works.

Drop-off dates are
September 2 - 5, 11am - 5pm. If you need artwork picked up, contact George Kocar.

Show closes on October 6.

Questions? Contact George Kocar or Ron Hill.

NOIS began almost 20 years ago as an informal gathering of Cleveland area illustrators who saw the need to communicate with one another regarding the rapidly changing field of illustration. With an equal interest in artistic excellence and smart business practices, the group began inviting various local artists to speak on a variety of topics.

NOIS meetings occur approximately once a month. In general, speaker meetings are open to the public and are FREE. Other meetings are members-only events, and include informal gatherings at local restaurants, museums and members' homes and studios. Attendees are encouraged to bring recent artwork for informal critiques.
