Demo Artist for February – Art Talk
This month our demo artist will be our own Joel Salmons, giving an art talk on William Merrit Chase. Joel gives regular art talks for adults at the Lake Houston YMCA.
I am an American artist. I was raised in Texas, New Mexico, and California. The great Southwest
of my youth provides background, color, myth, and legend which informs my artistic
consciousness. I am a third generation Sam Houston State University graduate with a degree in
Art Education and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant from the Universities US Army
Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC). As fate would have ROTC turned out to be the
breadwinner and after a whirlwind forty plus years career later I retired from the Pentagon and
wanted to get back to art. I applied for and got my dream retirement job as an art educator at the
National Gallery of Art in Washington DC where I have been educating for the last five years.
My art is recognized regionally and I’m on the board of Lake Houston Area Artist Art Guild.
