MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

Our next regular meeting will be May 19, 6:30 p.m. The Tuesday, May 19th demonstrator will be Jane Jones demonstrating experimental acrylic and watercolor.

Vibrant color, texture and fluid abstract design characterize the work of this creative watercolorist. Her subject matter ranges from realistic landscapes and florals to cityscapes, figures and non-objective acrylics and mixed media. Her dynamic use of color and design evoke powerful feelings in abstract forms. With vibrant colors, textures, shapes and lines, Jane communicates the wonder of nature through watercolor, collage, and mixed media.

Jane has studied with over 80 of the country's leading instructors and is in demand herself as an instructor, lecturer and juror.

Winner of innumerable prestigious awards in local, regional, and national juried exhibitions, Jane is a signature member of Southwest Watercolor Society, Associated Creative Artists, Texas Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Oklahoma and Western Federation Watercolor Society. She has served as lecturer and juror for more than 80 different art organizations throughout the country.
