Bob Obrian: Caricature Demo Jan. 24 in Irving

BobObrian

Guest artist at the Tuesday, January 24th meeting of the Irving Art Association will be Bob Obrian. He will be demonstrating his unique methods of drawing caricatures. And will be asking for volunteers from the audience!

Doors open at 6:30 pm and the Meeting starts at 7:00 pm at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts in Irving.  Directions.


About the artist: Bob Obrian

It was during his college summer job that Bob O’brian embarked on his profession of drawing people live. Working on the boardwalk in Ocean city md for 3 summers starting back in 1971. After a stint working on Jackson Square in New Orleans  where Bob left in 1974 and  eventually landed in Houston Texas . He started up working drawing live caricatures at the Houston Livestock and rodeo and from there to establishing a business at one of Houston malls for the next 10 years. Bob has since moved to Dallas where he freelances doing his caricature work at private parties, weddings, trade shows, mitzvahs etc.

Also about a year or two ago Bob  began  drawing his caricatures electronically  on digital tablets.

He set up during the summer weekends at the Gaylord Texan to retail his caricatures and get some experience w this new computer age approach to art. And hopefully I can draw some of you at the demo and demonstrate how this new art is changing my approach to drawing faces.

ChristyKidwell

Guest artist at the Tuesday, February 23rd meeting of the Irving Art Association will be artist Christy Kidwell.  She will be demonstrating her oil painting style in landscape, figurative or coastal subjects.

The Mixer with refreshments starts at 6:45 pm and the Meeting at 7:00 pm at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts in Irving. Artists, don’t forget to bring art for the Artist of the Month competition and donations for the Silent Auction by 6:45. Guests are welcome. Directions.

Kidwellcoastal_3_r7_c16_f3

Christy Kidwell is a native Texan.  She grew up in Houston along the banks of Buffalo Bayou which served as a natural playground.  She has lived in Dallas since graduating from Southern Methodist University in 1974.  As  ACA’s workshop coordinator for 10 years, she was able to continue her studies with such nationally recognized artists as Everett Raymond Kinstler, Dan Gerhartz, Scott Burdick, Kevin Macpherson, Harley Brown, Matt Smith, Charles Sovek and many others.  Now her portrait commissions and paintings can be found in private collections throughout the United States.

Kidwellfigure_r7_c33_f6

A love for nature has led her to broaden her studio to the great outdoors.  Armed with a pochade box and backpack she now adds landscape to her regular portrait and figure sessions.  “My paints travel with me everywhere.  They have ridden on a raft through the Grand Canyon and gone by horseback along trails in the Bob Marshall Wilderness of Montana.  Painting is my way of connecting with the world around me and sharing those experiences along the way.”  Color, texture and light are the essence of her paintings, all defined with a loose brushstroke, yet representational of the person or moment in time.

Kidwell is a current signature member of the Outdoor Painters Society and has been a signature member of the Association of Creative Artists since 1994.  She has exhibited and won awards in many local as well as national competitions.  For five consecutive years she had paintings juried into the Salon International Competition.  In 2013 and 2014 her art was juried into the American Women Artists national competition.  Twice she was a finalist in the Artist’s Magazine Annual Competition.  Her painting, “The Gossips”, was chosen for the 2005 limited-edition wall calendar.  She has done featured demonstrations for many art clubs in Texas.  Currently, she is represented by galleries in Dallas, Port Aransas and Montana.

3_Tree with yellow fields

In her words:

This exhibition is inspired by architecture & landscape. I work in abstract and realism style. With an architecture background my work is influenced by structure side of it, interested in light, form and color. Realism style influenced by my profession as a Landscape Designer. My paintings are a personal expression of this duality.

My process begins with a series of sketches of landscapes or places or objects. Each composition is enlarged & refined using graphite on canvas. Acrylic colors are used in layers to create different planes, patterns & textures. Coming from India, a country of vibrant colors! I was always inspired by bright, colorful festivals, dresses. I try to capture that vibrancy in my paintings.

Spontaneity, unpredictability and self-discovery in making the art work constantly excites me!
