January 11, 2017 – TAG in the Morning
Court Bailey 10 am.

About Court Bailey

I have been in and out of the amateur art scene my whole life till I finally decided to became an Instructor in oils with Alexander Art, and Frank Clarke in watercolors.  I had been an instructor in the USAF and the FAA so it was a pretty easy transition. My problem, frequently, was that I would become discouraged and give up, then I came across a quote by Connor Cochran: “”…trying to do something is what creates the ability to do it… so it is the willingness to surrender to the struggle, not talent, that defines an artist”.  I have it in a prominent place in my studio and refer to it often.

I have always enjoyed trying new mediums and techniques and during  the holidays two years ago, I discovered Igor Kazarin, who’s work absolutely blew me away!  “Dry Brush” oil portraits were different, challenging and no one knew anything about the process … wow, I had to do this!  I found the process challenging but intriguing enough to persist (“surrender to the struggle”), and boy, does it teach you about values.  Dry Brushing is easily correctable with an ordinary eraser and when finished brings a softness that many mistake for charcoal or pastel.  By the way, this process is very popular in Europe with street artists but is hardly known in the U.S., hopefully, we can help change that, what a blast!.

Pam, said make it short, so if you want to see more of my artistic history, awards. blah, blah, blah, go to my web site: courtbaileyfineart.com.  I have one folder committed to Dry Brush Portraits.  See you Dec 14th.

Becky Hicks demo Jan. 9 for the Trinity Arts Guild

TAGlogo2015

The next Trinity Arts Guild meeting will be on Monday, January 9, 2017.

Location: Trinity Arts Guild Gallery, Bedford Boys Ranch, 2819 R. D. Hurt Pkwy., Bedford, TX 76095-0671 (817) 283-1422  http://www.trinityartsguild.net/

Guest demo artist will be Becky Hicks.

 

Becky Hicks grew up in the small west Texas town of Breckenridge.  She spent many of her summers and holidays on her great-grandmother’s ranch, where her love for nature and all things “country” was born.  She began drawing and painting at five years old and was always encouraged by her family, friends and teachers to create art.  She knew at a very early age that she was an artist and would one day realize her dream of becoming a full time artist.

Becky currently resides in Keller, Tx with her husband, Dwain.  Several years ago she left the corporate world and has since successfully owned and operated a faux finishing and decorative painting business.  In addition she has been painting and selling her original oil paintings, which, along with the desire to teach others to paint, is her passion.

Forbidden Tiki Fever Jungle Art Show! Opening Nov. 19 in Bedford

dod bg 2

Brave enough to test the thrills of the jungle? Journey deep into the brush with 3 artists as they go in search of ancient tiki jungle treasures! Your safari guides will be Jay Hollopeter, William Flint and Robert Hamilton; 3 art types who figured out that 3 is better than 1 when exploring these dangerous tiki-territories!

Jay Hollopeter- works primarily in oils, although he does venture into acrylic, ink, marker, graphite and colored pencil occasionally. He keeps his color palette bright and vibrant. Jay’s subject matter is influenced by anything from monsters and hot rods to pop culture and space aliens. Humor has always been very important to him as a subject, so you’ll see it as an underlying tone in almost all of his work.

William Flint- Earned his BFA in Art from SMU. “Flint” as he’s known, has been an editorial cartoonist for over 30 years. An illustrator of children’s books, Flint is an avid low-brow kitsch painter that doesn’t take himself seriously, but as for his art, now that’s serious!

Robert Hamilton- Long time painter and musician, “Hami” has been circling the tattoo and hot rod world for years vending at shows, playing live in various acts and showing in spaces here and there across Texas. His passion for all things tiki and the dark jungle have led him to this most recent excursion with new pals, Jay and Flint and his musical collaboration with “the Tiki Torches.”

4-flint-sample

We hope you’ll join us on opening night as the Central Arts of Bedford and the Bedford Cultural Committee present the “Forbidden Tiki Fever Jungle” exhibition on Saturday November 19th from 7pm – 11pm.

Slithering Snacks and Jungle Juices will be served!

We’re also excited to announce that the savages will be tamed by the sounds of “The Tiki Torches,” performing live exotica, lounge and tiki tunes from 9pm – 10pm. www.thetikitorchesband.com

Central Arts of Bedford is located at 2816 Central Rd, Suite 140 in Bedford Texas.

Bring your wallet, your keen eye for cool and a companion and make plans to walk away with one of a kind art to decorate your walls just in time for Christmas! There will be many sizes, many mediums to choose from, all priced to make their way home with you! Take advantage of these roaring deals! (wink!)

Your safari guides will be on hand to assist you during your deep, dark, exotic, tiki jungle adventure! Let’s do this! The jungle awaits!

Tony Saladino demo October 3 in Bedford

tonysaladinotag

The next Trinity Arts Guild meeting will be on Monday, October 3, 2016.

Location: Trinity Arts Guild Gallery, Bedford Boys Ranch, 2819 R. D. Hurt Pkwy., Bedford, TX 76095-0671 (817) 283-1422  http://www.trinityartsguild.net/

Schedule: Refreshments at 6:30 pm Special Member Info at 6:45 Vote at 7:00 Demo at 7:00 pm

Our Demo Artist is Tony Saladino

“As we look, study, and think about art, our lives are enriched. We are bombarded, every day, by repetitive visual images. They aren’t, necessarily, ones we freely choose. I hope that the images I make will please your eyes, stimulate your mind, and long be a source of pleasure. I also hope that you will find your visit interesting and educational.”

Tony Saladino was born in New Orleans. His BS degree is from LSU in New Orleans. His work is in the collections of the National Museum of Fine Arts, Hanoi, University of Wisconsin – Parkside, University of Dallas, Wichita Falls Museum, Museum of International Art, Bahia, Brazil, McNeese State University, Lake Charles, Louisiana, Museum of Art and Archaeology, University of Missouri, and Parkersburg Art Center – Parkersburg, West Virginia.

He is listed in Who’s Who in American Art, and Who’s Who in the South and Southwest. He has taught at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and Oxbow Summer School of Art, Michigan.

“I enjoy the risk taking aspect of doing varied themes, and shifting from medium to medium. While I consider many of my pieces to be personal I am, nevertheless, concerned that the viewer sees images that are universal enough to compel him or her to keep looking at the work.”


 

REMINDER

Fall Members Only Juried Show. Intake is October 4, 2016 –  It’s almost time for our first show of 2016. The prospectus is available on our website.
