October Monthly Business Meeting

10/15/2011 - 01:00
10/15/2011 - 03:00

It's meeting time again, Sat. Oct. 15th, 1-3pm at the Yellow Cab building (700 E. 4th Street). Topics will include the redefining of board roles for the organization, updates on the forms we are creating (Event rental and Studio rental), building rental pricing, and discussion of Building policies. In addition we will recap everything that has happened in the last month (our last meeting was the same weekend as Ladyfest). as well as discussion of the upcoming Tailgate of Terror and other fun things!

September Monthly Business Meeting

09/17/2011 - 13:00
09/17/2011 - 15:00

Come catch up on what has happened at the Circus in the past month, and is happening in the next month. Most important topic will be discussing, and hopefully approving, the new event rental policies, as well as a discussion of tenant rental policies, and general building guidelines. I'm sure there will be discussion about Ladyfest (which happens on the 16th and 17th so come for the meeting and stay for the event!) and any other topics people want to bring up - we should figure out a show for October 1st Friday in the gallery at Yellow Cab.

THE EASEL@GardenStation ~ 2011

03/07/2011 - 13:11

As THE EASEL is nearing its forth warm seasons at Garden Station I am happy to report that it did survive its third winter quite well thank you. Still I feel the structure is due: (1) a paint-job (2) a minor wood overhaul (3) a slight modernization. ~ 1. the color I have selected is called: "International Orange" and is known by most of our citizens as the color of the "Golden Gate Bridge" in San Francisco CA. ~ 2. some of the wood panels are in need of replacement and a new stain veneer the color of which will be determined after the aforementioned paint job. ~ 3.

Monthly Circus Business Meeting at Hope Church

03/19/2011 - 13:00

Monthly Business Meeting - where should we have it?

11/20/2010 - 13:00

Time again for our monthly business meeting - I was going to suggest that we have it at Garden Station if the weather is warm enough, or we could go across the street and have it in the Yellow Cab building and walk through it again or we could have it at Hope Church and get filled in on the progress of the screen print studio

Monthly Business Meeting at Garden Station

So I was unable to make it to the last meeting I have been Swamped with work and all sorts of things that make me smile everyday.
Actually I am unable to make it meeting from now on due to having shoots booked just about every Weekend.

Here is what I need to make this years found art happen

Say 30 For Flyers ( Or If I can E-mail the flyer to someone who is willing to print them at the space then we can do that)

and I need 75 for sound.... We are using C{Space house sound since there are full bands playing.

So Total $105 C{Space is Handling Bar and not charging me a rental Fee

Still, there were many other campfire's where I was not present so our very proud record of safety continues. GOOD JOB Everyone!

PURPLE MARTINS! (maybe)

04/05/2010 - 12:00

frustration part II

01/28/2010 - 10:42

. at the original date of your post (June 22, 2007), GardenStation was not yet a formal project. I truly do feel 'ya girl; it can be frustrating to have plans grander than ourselves; only to find poor, poor me, left all alone with (I felt) a good idea.

But then, here comes The Really Really Really Free Market which is a concept of more than marginal utility.

I know & I know folks really do appreciate the RRRFM and the event will become a forum should you choose to carry on my wayward friend.

Here's an idea everyone can work on: keep members excited about the life of The Circus!

GardenStation Sustains Severe Wind Damage !! (>Once again my dear's<)

12/09/2009 - 19:59

Including "Wallet", the sculpture installed November 5th by yours truly. As is my custom, I stopped by the station only to find numerous Art installations damaged. Most unsecured items were found turned over or in unusual positions similar to the storm of September 2008. As in that storm, I did what I could to prevent further destruction today as well.

It was to late for my beloved "Wallet" & "Black Heart" however, as the two piece's had become horribly twisted & broken by the forces of nature.

A Sister for Dayton's GardenStation ?

The sister city concept is of course, not new. But there has always been something said for two areas miles apart, developing an affinity for each other to form a common bond. A family of Artist's from Rapid City S. Dakota, known as: ArtAlley has invited GardenStation to form such a bond.

To see ArtAlley and their version of urban Artspace please Google them online: artalley rapid city sd

Lober', from September 11th - November 1st, 2009, is now basking in the luxury of Richards newest Art a piece entitled: "Wallet".

A Fond Farewell for Maya Caballero

10/09/2009 - 08:30

As we know, Maya has been a real trouper for The Dayton Circus Collective & GardenStation. Maya's musical style captured the flavor of the garden with the big city flair of her New York City roots. The Urban Night patrons who happened to pass by the Station during her performance that night almost to a person, strolled on in to hear more.

Captivated by her limitless beauty, the small but appreciative audience felt the emotion & power of a songwriter who's truly been time-tested and traveled.

C{Space the meeting and ideas of how to work together
and I would like to talk about the 200 dollar that got set aside for updating security of the the Circus space and use some of it for a light on the outer window...
oh and our mission statement and the website...

and anyone looking at buildings lately?

Anything else?

a little something on things

If everything weren’t piling up all around us we would have nothing to kick out of the way.
I think as frustratingly as not having my own computer or camera its still just another bump to try and remove from the course or find a way around it.

So I have been rebuilding and starting all over again. As it is part of life and in many ways, a blessed experience to recreate what you are doing with yourself.

things we need for the space

if you have any of the bellow please let us know or you can call me kidtee directly
also if you can donate you time to sew, clean, paint, or help do inventory on monday 3-8:30, tuesdays3-8:30, thursdays9-5, or on saturday from 12-5

in no specific order we need

two boxes lockable for donation one for inside the space and one for directly outside the space the need to be mountable, pad lockable, and a plaqce to stick money in

A safe of sorts for money paper work and gift cards

container small to medium we don't need any large ones they need to fit on shelves

I need funds for our space

I need some basic things some hardware.... hinges maybe some paint(bright colors to liven the space), bolts and nuts, a lock box(to keep donations as the come in and petty cash... currently not locked up), two boxes with pad locks one inside the door and one directly outside the door for donations to the circus and materials to attach them....
we need storage containers that will fit onto the shelves..... curtain rodes..... and maybe curtains or larger pieces of fabric...... and also decopadge to so that we can get done with the tables....

C.I.R.C.U.S.- Our Space

Our Space- a place for us to have a home.... I KNOW ITS LONG BUTS ITS KINDA IMPORTANT SO PLEASE READ!

The last few years, for too many of you it hasn't felt that way or to me......but it can and should

We can make this space awesome! Though small in many ways the possibilities are great! at the next meeting I would really like to discuss what is bellow....

I have a plan somewhat loose, but thought out as much as possible.....

there are steps and things that must come first.....

All aboard the FAILboat (kinda)

Well, to all of those who doubted me... um, you know me better than I know myself.

Raks Update

Well, the meeting went OK. We're on for Raks Mystique, but we'll need a couple more volunteers... more on that later

From Anne R:

Hi everyone,

VIEWING 110 3RD ST

03/10/2009 - 18:45

Come view the 110 3rd st space..... get a feel for what it has to offer! its a great location and around the corner from c-space and on the same block as the dirt collective.........

Call me with questions 219-707-1643

Kidtee

110 3rd st viewing!!!

So I spoke with Paul on the phone he asked me to spread the word that he will have a few spaces available for rent on the cheep and they are very nice...

his number is 937-545-7185.... call if you interested..... no live ins within these spaces he is working on another project will that will be a possibility.....

Okay about the space I think the circus er us should take a real serious look at.... its purfect.....

110 3rd st.

Should we get a wide format printer for D'Art and Promotional materials? Laser or Ink Jet?

Laser - lower cost of prints, faster printing
30% (3 votes)
Ink Jet - Higher quality of prints (art/museum grade)
20% (2 votes)
No printer. Let's wait a while on this.
50% (5 votes)
Total votes: 10

my thoughts on the current issues

I been with the circus and the sideshow since it started.....
I remember me, laurana, and Mike Officer being there just about everyday working......... trying to trust in laurana's vision and man I am glad I did.... to me allot of the issues with attendence and trust and things like that are more a question....
do I trust the other members... well yes I do but the may not have the same opinion as I do..... so here is what I think....
What is the real issue..... attendance not quarum.... people don't want to come out anymore we have in many ways lost site of what our goals are...........

Thinking out side our own creative box.....

So on a gut feeling I called about a space..... its located at 110 E 3rd st.....

I looked in and Wow what a great feeling so... I called the number on the poster in the window....I have never done this and I was so nervous.... I don't deal with these kinds of things well.... I felt bubbles in my stomach..... I know in my head we need a downtown pressence.... we need a space that is our and a place where we can grow....

We just got a place at front st I know this.... and this is where I ask to keep an open mind.....

Transparency

The feedback I've been consistently receiving as of late has been that I need to be more transparent. To that end, let me bring you, dear reader, up to date on a couple of things I've been doing that are circus related.

Raks Mystique is gonna be awesome! If you'd like to be involved with the process of producing the night, please join our google group.

Is this something for Circus?

I just received this email from Jacquellyne Buck. is this something Circus should have a presence at?

email as follows:

You’re Invited!

Who? “Art with Attitude”
When? Wednesday, April 23, 2008 6:00pm – 8:30 pm
Where? Benham's Grove
166 N. Main Street, Centerville
What? A gathering of all interested art organizations, galleries, artists and supporters.
Why? The objective is two-fold….

Chainsaw

It says in the descriptiuon of solicitations and opportunities "Need to borrow a chainsaw?"

I had to take my chainsaw apart after the flood, and took the opportunity to get it into tip-top shape. If anyone ever does need to borrow a chainsaw, I've got one!

Front Street Space?

What do ya'll think about renting a space for The Circus at Front Street?

Much of what we want to accomplish with our building is already going on here. Front Street needs a communal space! This place is ALIVE, but it's difficult to connect with everyone here. There are so many locked doors...

Front Street would be a great experimentation ground for the things we want to do in our own building. It would also be cheap to rent here.

Any thoughts?

I changed the "Membership" Group to "The Voting Pool"

See here:

http://www.daytoncircus.org/?q=node/259

The word "Membership" has an exclusive connotation that has already confused many people in the past. Words have power, so I decided to change "Membership" to "The Voting Pool". Is this cool with everyone? Any other suggestions for different terminology?
