Richardson Civic Art Society meets the third Tuesday of each month. Each month we have various artists demos. Our next regular meeting is February 17, 2015. Our demo artist for February is Steve Miller. Steve will demonstrate soft pastel on Ampersand Pastelbord.

About Steve: Steve was born in Texas in the late 50's, but spent most of his early and teenage years in Georgia and Tennessee. Steve begin drawing in those early years, later developing God's gift in several commercial visual skills. Steve has airbrushed vans and T-shirts in the 70's, painted murals, signs and illustration in the 80's, created computer animation and digital illustration in the 90's and into this millennium we are currently in.

Steve has in recent years studied Oil and Pastel painting, attending workshops taught by artists John Pototschnik and Dina Gregory.

He says: "My goal as an artist is pursue leaning more about light, color and form as I attempt to portray this incredible creation God has made, always pointing to Him.

JUROR: Gladys Roldan de Moras The product of a long line of artists and artisans, Gladys was born in 1965 in Monterrey, Mexico. She began to enjoy Art at a very young age and took a circuitous route to become a fine artist we know today. In 1984 she moved to Austin where she received her degree from the University of Texas.

Her passion for art is reflected in her colorful work. Each one of her paintings captures the essence of the moment; often there is a hidden message the artist wants to convey. Strong colors, soft edges, hard edges, light and shadow are all captured by the artist’s hand. Because of her talent she is rapidly being recognized as an important emerging artist.
