Next Meeting is September 1, 2015
SAL's meetings are the 1st Tuesday of each month.
Member Critique: 5:45 PM – 6:45 PM
Jim Garrison is leading our critique for September 1.
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
Presenter for September: Kelby Love www.kelbylove.net
Kelby never doubted the focus of his life, from childhood, his interest in nature, particularly fish, was enthusiastic and comprehensive, due to the many trips to the river with his father. Kelby has observed, sketched and painted animals since he can remember, and it has translated into firsthand knowledge of his subjects, which he transforms into exacting detail for his clients, Field & Stream, Outdoor Life and National Geographic.
Kelby has taken the next step and created a full line of wildlife art. With the same exacting detail, the artwork conveys a sense of inner vitality that makes them more the mere paintings; they place the viewer into a particular living moment.
