Art Exhibit: Fresh Paint | Hailey Herrera

Screen Shot 2017-02-16 at 12.33.00 PM

Inspired by the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi, in this exhibit of abstract watermedia paintings Hailey Herrera integrates freeform lines and shapes; finding her inspiration from nature and her surroundings. Unless she has a specific theme in mind, she begins with some calligraphic lines without a preconceived idea of result. In the process of interplaying lines and shapes spontaneously, an idea emerges and the painting reveals something new to which her intuition and emotion responds. This spontaneous decision process leads to a fascinating and unconventional result.

The work displayed at Elm Street Studio is an ongoing study of experimentation in watermedia abstract painting.  Please join us at Elm Street Studio in Keller, TX for a complimentary reception and meet the artist on Friday, March 24 from 6 to 8 pm. For more information and to see images of Herrera’s work, please visit www.ElmStreetStudioKeller.com. Fresh Paint: Watermedia Abstracts by Hailey Herrera will be on display through April 27, 2017.

Patsy Lindamood Wildlife Art Exhibit at the West Irving Library

lindamood4

Irving Art Association is honored to present the Patsy Lindamood Wildlife Art Exhibit at the West Irving Library Dec. 4, 2016 through Jan. 8, 2017.The Library is located at 4444 W. Rochelle in Irving (near the intersection of Rochelle & Esters.)

Patsy is an IAA member and frequent winner in IAA’s Texas & Neighbors and Animal Art exhibits. The exhibit showcases her wildlife art but she also draws and paints domestic animals, landscape art, and portraits. Her latest series is on ranch and rodeo life.

Learning from from nationally and internationally recognized pastelists and wildlife artists, Patsy has emerged with a style uniquely her own, marked by strong, colorful, yet infinitely detailed compositions in a representational style.  She has become a nationally award winning artist in her own right.

lindamood1

Her work derives from research and observation of creatures in their environments, in the wild whenever possible. Trips to state and national parks have provided great adventure and abundant inspiration. Wildlife also regularly visit her property in Huntsville, and it is not unusual to pass deer or roadrunners on her weekday routes.

Working in pastel, graphite, colored pencil, and watercolor or watercolor pencil, Lindamood’s paintings are life-size, bold with color, rich with texture, and bursting with presence. She frequently paints on cradled artist boards, Pastelboard or Mylar.

For more about Patsy and her art, see her website at  http://www.lindamoodfineart.com

Contact her at 352-339-2353 or lindamood@att.net.  Brochure of this exhibit: iaapatsylindamoodexhibitbrochure

Artist Judy Mason at the VAST November 3rd Meeting

judy-mason-vast-nov-2016

You are invited to a presentation by Artist Judy Mason at the VAST November Meeting November 3rd, from 7 – 9 p.m., at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center, 400 East Hickory St, Denton, TX.

Judy Mason’s Artist Statement: “It is my belief and experience that the most intriguing avenues of understanding are introduced by chance. There is an evolution of happenings meant to create something unique. As our artwork evolves, so does the individuality of the artist. Only when the artist decides to “rest” does his work become stale.

I find some repetition within my artwork to be fun, but too much of it quickly becomes predictable. That is where the danger lies. We, as artists, are performers and must constantly entertain ourselves and the audience.

Sharing that which is felt is an obligation, and hopefully, it can hold the attention of someone long enough to get that feeling transmitted. Then that work of art is considered successfully placed.”

Judy Mason’s artwork is shown in the Center for Contemporary Art in Abilene, Texas, and the Firehouse Art Gallery in Weatherford, Texas.

To find out more about Judy, see: www.judymasoneldridge.com

The presentation is free for VAST Members; $3 for guests. vastarts.org

Sharon Serrago demo for Society of Watercolor Artists Oct. 17

sharonserragothecavern

Sharon Serrago is a local area artist, teaching weekly watercolor and acrylic classes at her studio in Richardson, TX. As her teaching strength lies in design and color theory, her classes always focus on strong fundamentals. Sharon’s ability to quickly spot problem areas in paintings and her adeptness at offering solutions has caught the eye of many art clubs and organizations who have subsequently invited her to present demonstrations, offer critiques of members’ works, and judge competitions.

A signature member of SWS, Sharon has been accepted into numerous exhibitions including Western Federation WS, Alabama WS, Georgia WS, Illinois WS, Irving WS, Houston WS, and several others.

An entrepreneur with her hand in several businesses, Sharon’s first love is her art. While she frequently paints realistically, she is most at home when painting abstracts. Her styles are as diverse as her talents, all of which goes into making her one of Dallas’ interesting artists. Sharon’s work can be seen on her website: www.serrago.com

“The Art of BUGS” a presentation by Artist Walt Davis at the Visual Arts Society of Texas (VAST) May Meeting

Walt Davis

Please join VAST on Thursday, May 5th from 7-9 p.m. for a presentation entitled “The Art of BUGS” by watercolor artist Walt Davis .

During the presentation, Walt will work on a half-sheet demo of a large scale insect. Walt states that he is four years into a series of paintings celebrating the surprising world just small enough to escape our attention but full of beautiful and unexpected colors and shapes. It is the world at our feet that goes largely unnoticed. He will include plenty of sketches and preliminary drawings to illustrate his method of working as well as the three paintings that made it into American Watercolor Society annual shows, one of which won an award.

Walt Davis is a signature member, life member, and past president of the Southwestern Watercolor Society. He is also a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, and his painting “Katy-did, Katy-didn’t” won their Margery Soroka Memorial Award in 2012. He was curator of exhibits at the Dallas Museum of Natural History for fifteen years creating wildlife dioramas and collaborating with Dallas muralists Olin Travis and Granville Bruce.

Walt’s work has been exhibited at Eastfield College Gallery, Bath House Cultural Center (Dallas), Panhandle Art Center, (Amarillo), Old Jail Art Museum (Mount Vernon), Brownsville Heritage Complex, Dallas Museum of Nature and Science, and San Angelo Art Museum.

Walt often paints plein air and enjoys working in different scales from miniatures to full sheet watercolors. He says the challenge for the watercolorist is to choreograph a delicate dance between art and nature coaxing the fundamental truth of one to illuminate the fundamental truth of the other.

To find out more about Walt, see: http://waltdavisart.com/

The presentation takes place at the Patterson – Appleton Arts Center, 400 E. Hickory St, Denton, TX 76201.

The presentation is Free for VAST Members, and $3 for non-members.http://vastarts.org

This makes the class ideal for beginning and advanced students. A typical day might include demonstration and lecture in the morning with class work time and individual help in the afternoon.

Beverly Boren Workshop: Simple, Fast & Focused March 17 – 19

BeverlyBorensnowscape

SIMPLE, FAST & FOCUSED

Bev Boren is offering a three-day workshop at Teta Smith’s Studio.  In this workshop we will focus on simplification.  Simplification is the best means of planning and transforming what you see in a painting.  My technique for watercolor is an extension of my oil painting.  I have never practiced laying down graded washes because I never felt the need for them in my work.  I am sure they serve some watercolorists, but you won’t find much of that technique here.
 
We will work fast and loose.
 
Classes include daily demonstrations, and plenty of one-on-one personal instruction.
Cost:        $260.00
Dates:       March 17-19
Time:     10:00-4:00
Location:    Teta Smith Studio
                   13331Preston Rd.
                   Dallas, 75240
Deposit: $50.00 to reserve your place. Checks may be made and sent to Teta Smith
      7100 Chase Oaks Blvd. # 1411
      Plano, 75025
If you prefer to pay with credit card, call me 214-244-9449
A Supply list is below:
 
Hope you can join us,
Teta

BRUSHES:  You will need only a few basic brushes
                 1″ flat, 1/2″ flat, large round (#6, 7 or 8), small round or rigger
