Demo Artist for May – Nancy Paris Pruden – Oils

Nancy Paris Pruden, an award-winning artist, lives and works in Houston, Texas. Growing up in Ft. Worth, Texas, Nancy started painting at a very early age when she won a scholarship to study drawing and later painting at the Experimental Art Program in Ft. Worth. By the time she graduated from high school, she was selling her art and is today shown in many national juried shows. Texture and color are her main interests, and she paints from life Alla Prima style in oils.

Graduating from the University of Georgia with a BFA in Painting and Drawing, Nancy continued her training with workshops under David Leffel, Gregg Kreutz, Quang Ho, Carolyn Anderson, and Joe Anna Arnett before attending the Art Students League in New York.

Reminders – Spring Art Show & Competition

Our Spring 2022 Art Show and Competition is Getting Closer! The Time to Register Your Entries is now!

Everyone Planning on Entering or Contributing to Our Upcoming Art Show, Remember:

(1) You need to register your entries on the LSAG database. The deadline is midnight on Wednesday, April 27, but don’t leave it till the last minute. It’s a lot easier on our database manager not to have to process a lot of last minute entries all at once. You can add more entries later if you want to.

(2) You need to pay your membership fees ($20 for the remainder of this season). Please bring your fees to the show when you check in.

(3) If you signed one of our volunteer sheets, PLEASE contact Amy Conroy to confirm and receive additional instructions. Contact her directly at amymcleod.conroy@gmail.com

(4) If you don’t have any new artwork to enter, you can still bring your previous work to the Gallery, to be on display at the same time as the show. Be ready to display your contact information, in case anyone there wants to contact you later about purchasing your art.

(5) If you have art on display at Skero’s that you would like to enter into the show, contact Lynda Feierabend about taking it down temporarily.
