I have just returned from another wonderful adventure. This time I enjoyed a long visit to Barcelona and really felt that I could savor the remarkable architecture and feast on the flavors of the city. Then it was onto my family roots in Bilbao. I had not visited the city since the Guggenheim Museum was built and to say the least, was not disappointed. It is a visual joy, a jewel. Lastly, a few days in Paris, an old friend...that always amazes. The art that I saw will sustain me, at least, until Art Basel, in Miami, in December! Anyway, back to reality!...and a good reality it is.
As soon as I returned, Katy DiGioia and I delivered paintings by 18 of our members to the FAU Campus. This show is having its' Opening Reception on June 9th from 5:30-7PM. We would love to see a huge turnout for this fine event. Katie did such a wonderful job and as a result we have been asked to make it an annual event at the college. The show is in the central atrium in the library building. Go west on Donald Ross Road to the campus entrance, turn right, then turn right into the first parking lot.
Katie Deits is doing the publicity for us at the Mos'Art Theatre exhibit in Lake Park. Again, quite a few members participated. We decorated the lobby of the theatre and our work will be there through June. I would also suggest seeing some of the fine films being shown at Mos'Art.
Our June demonstrator will be Nancy Tilles. Nancy is a fine portraitist and painter of great detail and depth. I think that she will have a lot to show us and discuss. Also, Nancy has just joined us at The Village Art Studios.
For the July meeting, let's plan on bringing one of our own paintings and we can each talk about what motivates us in our work.
