    • We are asking any member who would like, to bring one artwork and spend 5-minutes sharing what inspired you to do it.

    • Then, Lee will do a very interesting visual slide show of things pertaining to art or, as Lee calls it, ”from the four corners of the earth to the 12-dimensions of the space-time continuum.....the weird, the wild, the wacky and the wonderful world of the world wide web”.

    Hope to see you there.....

  • A big Thank You to our April demonstrator, Dan Whitely for sharing his inspirations and his passion for art!  He brought two large unfinished oil paintings to work on and show the process by which he creates his works.  Dan showed us how he uses a computer to digitally create an image from multiple photographs, and then uses a computer screen to paint from since it gives the light and depth not found in a simple photograph.  His use of bright colors and layers gives an incredible aura to his paintings.  One of the two was to be entered in the Gates Mills Art Show later in the week, and after he returned home from our presentation, he planned to work late into the night to complete it.  A must see art trip!  Make sure to visit our Demonstrations page to see pictures and read more of Dan's demonstration.

    Thanks to Mary Ann Gambitta and Mary Alice Valvoda who served up a scrumptious buffet of goodies!  Everything was delicious!
