Artists!

We will be holding a Zoom meeting for our paid members on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. All artists who were paid members for the 2019/2020 season will receive an invitation by email. In that invitation will be a link you can click at the appropriate time and day to join the meeting.

When you click on the link you will be taken to a virtual “waiting room” and given an opportunity to test your audio to be sure that you can hear us. The meeting host will let you in to the meeting once your name is checked against the list of invitees. For this meeting, everyone but the presenter and our Prez, Debra Jones, will be muted except during the designated time for questions and answers.

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.

Anyone Not Familiar With Zoom?

We will invite anyone not yet familiar with Zoom to attend our board meeting on Monday, September 14, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. Send us a message on the “Contact Us” form and you will be added to the invitation.
