We are all being invited to attend an open Zoom meeting of the Lone Star Art Guild (our parent organization) on Saturday, November 14, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. They are inviting us to contribute to some upcoming decisions that will affect us all. Anyone who has paid their LHAA dues will receive the official invitation in a separate email.
For those of us who have not attended an LSAG meeting before this will be an interesting opportunity to get some first hand information about plans for the immediate future. A couple of items on the agenda will be discussion about online competitions and about the May convention and art contest.
This is short notice, but we hope you will consider attending the meeting.
Our General Meeting for November will be held on Zoom on Tuesday, November 17, 2020
As before, all paid members will receive an invitation by email to the meeting.
November Demo Artists: Jodi Ohl – Building Layers and Making Marks in Abstract Paintings
Jodi Ohl is a best-selling author, award winning mixed media artist and creative instructor, originally from Dunkirk, NY, who now resides in Aberdeen, NC. Having left her day job in 2011 to pursue her artistic career full time, she has built a body of work that is known for its distinctive texture, bold color combinations which are often whimsical or abstract compositions, as well as motivational in nature. Jodi has been published in over 3 dozen popular mixed media magazines such as Somerset Studios, Somerset Holidasy, Artful Journaling, Artful Blogging, and was a long time contributing free-lance writer for Cloth Paper scissors. In addition, her work has appeared in over 10 mixed media art books and collections.
Jodi’s best-selling book, “Abstracts in Acrylic and Ink”was released by North Light Books in late 2016 and is currently working on a variety of new writing and video projects. Combining her approachable teaching and writing style, Abstract in Acrylic and Ink, is much like having a seat next to the artist at one of her popular workshops. Jodi welcomes visitors to her website Jodi Ohl (www.jodiohl.com) where you can find a full listing of classes, weekly musings, and additional artwork for sale.
