MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

Next meeting is November 19, and the Demo Artist for November will be Ted Clemens, demonstrating his technique in oils. The Meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Richardson Public Library basement meeting room.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Ted Clemens grew up surrounded by Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in Meyersville. After high school, he went on to pursue an education at duCret School of Art in Plainfield, NJ.

A career in graphic design took him first to Utah, then Texas where he now spends as much time as possible in front of an easel, both indoors and out. Ted gets much of his inspiration in the landscapes of the southwest; as well as at living history events in which he and his wife participate.

While subject matter inspires Ted, painting is more about design and the application of paint. This is what he explores in his work. “I’m a copyist by nature, but have learned to aim not for realism, but a realistic impression.”

Ted and his wife, Becky raised three children in the Lone Star state and live in Sachse.

Juror: Andrew Wages

Juror's Statement

"When I'm walking in the landscape looking for a place to paint, I may notice a combination of colors or a feeling of light and value, or I may be stopped by a special touch of detail.

However, it is being out in nature that really touches me deeply. It is the sights, sounds, and the feel of it, that touches me deep inside.

At times it is almost a spiritual thing, unpaintable, but there is a peace and quietness to my painting that I enjoy when I see them framed and, in the studio, or in my home. I hope others feel some of the things I feel while I'm painting and find that peace and quietness also.

We need to work hard to preserve our natural landscape for other generations to enjoy. I have seen a lot destroyed during the last two decades. It takes each person doing his or her small part to preserve our national landscape."

Juror's Biography

While a young boy, Andrew Wages wandered the hills of southern Oklahoma. After his fam-ily moved to Texas, he developed an interest in art. Encouraged by his teachers, he attended Art Center College of Design, graduating with honors.

He married his high school sweetheart, Sandra Lee, and was off to New York City to appren-tice as an illustrator to one of the commercial art studios. He was drafted by the army and served as an illustrator in Fourth Army Recruiting. He then worked as a free-lance illustrator in Dallas for thirty-five years.

But for the past fifteen years, Andrew has followed his dream and has been painting land-scapes, still life, portraits and figurative works. He has taught at SMU and El Centro, as well as private lessons, critiques and workshops.

Andrew has two children and two granddaughters.
