Monthly Meeting

Tuesday, June 3, 2014

Member Critique: 5:45 PM – 6:45 PM

David Flitner is leading our critique for June 3.

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 June will be Debra Jones.

Debra Jones returns for another demonstration this month. This time she is going to do a little explaining and a little demonstrating her technique and opinions about drawing.

A full time artist, Debra has been earning her living as a portrait painter - furry and human! Last year she became a signature member of the Institute of Equine Artists with a new turn to the Wild West featuring the Cowboy Mounted Shooters and going completely East with a series of fox hunting pieces. For the past two years she has participated in the prestigious Mountain Oyster Club Western Art Collectors Show and is a member of American Women Artists.

Many of you know her from her pastel demonstrations she also works in oil and watercolor and has been in many national shows in all media, as well as showing in The Buffalo Collection at Scenic Mesa on Fifth Avenue in Scottsdale.

In the past few years she has been drawn to the very essential of art - drawing. Using charcoal and graphite from General Pencil Company she has recently been asked to represent their products in Arizona. Debra also will explore and demonstrate the somewhat lost art of metal point known as copper point or silver point drawing.
