Guest Artist: Cecy Turner
A native Dallasite, Cecy Turner received her formal art training at Vanderbilt University and the University of North Texas, followed by workshops by over 50 professional artists from across the nation. She is a Signature Member of the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society, American Women Artists, National Watercolor Society, Southwestern Watercolor Society, Western Federation of Watercolor Societies, Outdoor Painters Society (Board Member), Plein Air Artists Colorado, Associated Creative Artists, American Plains Artists, and Texas and Neighbors . She is a Master Signature Member of Women Artists of the West (and a past president of WAOW), a Fellow of the American Artists Professional League and a member of Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters.
Cecy has been a popular lecturer, teacher, juror and demonstrator since 1976. Versatile in both watercolor and oils, she has designed cards and calendars for numerous national greeting card companies. Texture and the effects of light and shadow have become important elements in her paintings. She is fascinated with the glow of reflected light on various surfaces. Painting on location on a regular basis has opened many doors for her. She says cannot improve nature, but can rearrange and simplify it to correspond to what she feel. Traveling abroad has opened up new vistas of color and texture for her as well. She paints to convey the enjoyment and excitement of what she sees.
