Monthly Meeting

Tuesday, November 4, 2014

Member Critique: 5:45 PM – 6:45 PM

Donna Levine is leading our critique for November 4.

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 November will be Elliott Everson.

As an artist who has been living in Arizona most of my life I derive much of my inspiration from the desert around me. My medium of choice to capture the textures and brilliance of the plants and animals is colored pencils. Each drawing consists of layer upon layer of color, to bring out the many subtle hues that nature itself provides. Colored pencil provides a medium that is well suited to exploring the variety of effects and textures from parched crusty bark and dried leaves to waxy smooth flesh of the prickly pear cactus or shiny scales and dry folds of skin on the reptiles.
