27th June GUEST SPEAKER :Jennifer Grace. She says: “I am a Post Modern style art-worker. I like to use symbolism and draw inspiration from historical themes,anything from the ancients to the post impressionist period. Much of my past work reflects a particular interest in medieval tapestries and ancient Greek mosaics. Pattern is a passion which I explore with linocut mono-printing, acrylic, shellac, charcoal, ink, graphite. The effect is reminiscent of tapestry or mosaic.
May 30th Bob Saxon Plein Air Painting Bob inspired many who attended the meeting with his enthusiasm for plein air painting. He showed a series of photos of places he'd been, the scenes that inspired him and the resulting paintings. You can read an article Bob has written about Plein Air painting here.
