Artist Demo – Holly Hunter Berry – Animal Portraits
Representationalist, impressionist, colorist, expressionist are a few of the “ist” terms that have defined her work at various times. She continues to grow and push herself to explore new fresh approaches to communicating her message. Never tired of “pushing paint around” she looks forward to working at the easel every day possible. At this stage in Holly’s career she enjoys giving back to the community by teaching her weekly classes and periodic workshops. She tries to teach in a way as to take the mystery out of the painting process. Intuition is important but a strong foundation is important as well and that is her focus. Intuition is personal and can’t be taught…that is the voice of the artist! In addition to giving demonstrations for art groups she has also been asked to be a judge at various art shows.

Our Fall Art Show and Competition will be a virtual one this year. It is scheduled for late October. Details to follow.
As September and the traditional beginning of our art season draws nearer, you are all undoubtedly wondering about our plans for meetings and our usual Fall Art Show.
We are very busy, exploring options for virtual meetings and a virtual art show. Things are looking promising, and we hope to be able to give you some more concrete information very soon.
In the meantime, we would appreciate your feedback. Please use our contact form to get in touch with us and let us know what your feelings are about (a) virtual meetings, using software such as Zoom or Google Meets; and (b) a virtual art show, with winners displayed on our website.
We would love to hear from you! Some of you may be quite familiar with virtual gatherings already, while some of you may not know yet how you would be able to participate. Give us a shout!
