January 2022 General Meeting

ZOOM Meeting – Tuesday, January 18, 2022

Meet and Greet starts at 6:30 p.m.
Meeting starts at 7:00 p.m.

Happy New Year! We hope each of you had a wonderful Holiday season.
Last November we all had high hopes that we would be able to go back to live meetings, starting in January. Unfortunately, the very high case numbers due to the Omicron variant have made us change our plan. According to our sources, we are probably at the peak of this wave, and it should start to diminish after another couple of weeks. That is the good news. The bad news is that it seems like a very bad time to get back together. So lets buckle up for at least one more ZOOM meeting, and hope that February brings us better news.

Demo Artist for January – Suzie Baker

In recent years, Suzie has gained national acclaim, earning a stellar reputation for her versatility as both a plein-air landscape artist as well as a studio painter of still lifes, figurative works, and portraits. In fact, in the Art Renewal Center’s 13th International Salon, she was recognized in both the Plein Air and Figurative Categories, which is a truly remarkable achievement. Among the many other awards she’s received recently are Best in Show and Artists Choice Awards at the Outdoor Painters Society’s Plein Air Southwest (2018), Best in Show at Shadows on the Teche (2018), the Irvine Museum Award and Montage Award at the 2018 Maui Plein Air Invitational, an Award of Excellence from American Women Artists’ Tucson Desert Art Museum Exhibition (2017), and the Artists’ Choice award at the 2017 Telluride Plein Air Festival. Her award-winning paintings have been featured in such publications as Plein Air Magazine, Fine Art Connoisseur, and Southwest Art. Also known as a generous and uplifting teacher, Suzie has just produced her first art instruction video with Streamline Publishing.

General Meeting for February is Scheduled for Tuesday, February 15, 2022.

We very much hope that it will be an in-person meeting. We will keep you informed.
Keep watching the case numbers! We are.
