FBCAA Meeting / Workshop Feb. 18 DOVIE WU

New Logo

The Farmer’s Branch Carrollton Art Association will hold their monthly meeting on Tuesday, February 18. in the Craft Room of the Farmer’s Branch Senior Center, 14055 Dennis Lane, near Valwood.  The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. and workshop is from 1:00 – 3:00.  The workshop includes a presentation on watercolor and yupo paper by Dovie Wu, co-owner of Artists’ Showplace Gallery. Dovie began her painting journey in watercolor, but soon found herself experimenting in a variety of other media, like pastels, oils and acrylics. Dovie travels extensively because she enjoys plein air painting. Whether in Spain, Italy, or here in America, she often paints watercolor paintings on location. “I incorporate movement and the spirit of music in my paintings, using vibrant colors, to paint people and landscapes that inspire me.”

Dovie is a signature member of the Southwest Watercolor Society. Her work has been accepted in both the Southwest Watercolor Society and the Pastel Society of the Southwest, juried shows. She won the Best of Show for the Vertu 2010 show.
