Next Meeting will be held February 10th the 2nd Tuesday of the Month
SAL's meetings are usually the 1st Tuesday of the month, but February will be the exception.
Member Critique: 5:45 PM – 6:45 PM
Jim Garrison is leading our critique for February 10.
All members & guests are invited to participate with work and suggestions for the work. Please join us! Critique begins promptly at 5:45 pm and runs to 6:45 pm prior to the General meeting. Paintings and drawings do not need to be framed. Unfinished pieces are welcome for suggestions to finish them. Those members arriving with work after 6:15 risk not having their work critiqued depending on volume of work brought in earlier. 1 painting only per person please.
We would prefer that participants in the critique please not bring paintings that are freshly wet, oils particularly, as the paint gets on our hands and clothes from handling the pieces and then paint is transferred to other works and the carpet in the critique area. If you have a frame to put the painting in for handling purposes that will be appreciated. Thanks from the critique leaders.
~ Jim Garrison, Critique Master
General Meeting: 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Guest Presenter for February will be Sue Hunter, Multi-Medium Artist
Sue Hunter's paintings are full of color and emotion in an impressionist style. A native of Arkansas but has been in Arizona since 1960, Sue is a graduate of Western International University and has studied art at Scottsdale Artists School and with individual instructors.
Sue's art is impressionist and full of color. Landscapes, animals, figurative, and florals are some of the images that are subjects for paintings. The play of light and shadow as well as contrast are part of the compositions. "I start with a photo or painting plein aire and at some point my intuitive nature takes over and the painting takes on the character of the emotion of the image."
Sue also teaches art classes in all mediums, as well as workshops. Sue is represented by Sedona Art Center and the Raku Gallery in Jerome, AZ
