Our board has gotten together and decided that we would like to try getting together in person again, starting with our general meeting in January of 2022. But this is a decision that should also involve you, the members. We would be all together in our hotel meeting room for a couple of hours, and some people might not be ready for that yet. So please let us know how you feel – whether you want to start attending meetings in person or not. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Art Changeout at Skero’s
The next changeout of art at Skero’s will be on Wednesday, October 27 at 1:30 p.m. If you have art there, please drop by to pick it up. And any paid member is eligible to bring fresh artwork to take the place of what was there. Just make sure your work is ready to hang (picture wire installed). And speaking of paid members. . .
Membership Fees Due
We have not yet received membership dues from many of you. Please renew your membership as soon as possible! We need dues to be paid by the end of October. Paid memberships will also mean that you are eligible to enter our Fall 2021 Virtual Art Show and Competition.
Fall 2021 Virtual Art Show and Competition
Our judge for the Fall Art Show will be Shirley Leago. She will be giving a critique of the winning art pieces during our November General Meeting. Entries are due by the end of Wednesday, November 3, 2021. The procedure for entry should be available under “Shows and Competitions” on our website. More information on the show will be arriving very soon. Stay tuned!
October General Meeting, Zoom, Tuesday, October 19, 2021
Look for your invitation to the Zoom meeting on Monday or Tuesday of that week. Meet and Greet will start at 6:30 p.m., with the meeting starting at 7:00 p.m. Continuing to take advantage of the wider range of artists now available to us through Zoom, our demo artist this month will be coming to us from Eugene, Oregon.
Demo Artist for October – Sarah Sedwick – Oil Painting
Sarah Sedwick is an oil painter who makes her home in Eugene, Oregon. Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1979, she began oil painting at age ten. In 2001 she earned a BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art, with a focus on illustration and painting, and a minor degree in art history. Her work focuses mainly on still life and portraiture, painting from direct observation. Sarah has been writing a studio blog since 2008, posting new paintings as they’re made and chronicling her art journey. She is also active on Instagram and Facebook.
Teaching is an integral part of her creative work. She teaches still life and portrait painting workshops around the country and internationally, as well as an online art mentorship program.
In looking through the responses from our membership about future meetings and art shows, it was clear that most members want to go back to meeting in person. We were all looking forward in May to a return to our live meetings. But the recent rise of the Delta variant of COVID has seen another huge spike in infections. In light of recent events, we have decided that it is wiser to continue our Zoom meetings, at least until the new year arrives. As much as we want to be able to be with all of you in person again, we care more about your health and the health of your families. That also means that our Fall 2021 Art Show will be virtual again. We continue to hope to return to our normal meetings soon!
Our September Zoom Meeting Will Be Tuesday, September 21, 2021
Meet and Greet will start at 6:30 p.m., with the meeting and artist demo starting at 7:00. Until we have more paid memberships for the new season, everyone who was a member last year will be invited again this month. Remember to pay your dues for the 2021-2022 season! Same low price!
September Demo Artist: Jessie Rasche “On the Farm” Oil Painting
We are continuing to take advantage of our Zoom meetings by inviting an artist to speak to us from South Dakota!
Jessie is a professional artist, painting and teaching (online) from her studio in South Dakota. Her work focuses on landscapes full of animals, and people working and playing. The main theme of her work is personal connection between people, between animals, and with the land. Through a painterly use of oils, Jessie expresses a love of the materials as well as the subject matter.
Her work has shown in fine art galleries and museums in the West, Midwest, South, and East United States. She has paintings in public collections, and has wonderful collectors in over 30 states, Canada, the Isle of Man, and the UK.Jessie teaches online drawing and painting classes for beginning to professional level artists, and is an exhibiting member of Oil Painters of America and the American Impressionist Society.
We will be changing out the artwork on display at the Kingwood Public Library this Friday, September 17 at 11:00a.m. Anyone who has had work hanging there should be on hand to pick it up. Anyone who wishes to hang something new at the library is welcome as well. Your work should be ready to hang, with picture wire installed.
The next changeout of the art at Skero’s will be sometime in October. Stay tuned for more details!
