MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

The 50th Anniversary Year will again have monthly live demonstrators, demonstrating various media and techniques. 

Our next regular meeting will be Tuesday, Feb. 16th. The February artist will be Jane Monsson.

I have known Jane for several years and am impressed with the innovative techniques she uses in her art. Her love of horses is transferred to the canvas in beautiful exciting ways. She uses texture and sometimes wire and texture to build up the images and bring them forward to the viewer. Then acrylic colors are added to the final product.

Her work is a major attraction at horse shows across the country. Locally, her work can be seen at Café Bohemia in Plano and frequently at ArtWalk in Valley View Center, Dallas. Her Facebook page, Monsson Fine Art, also has examples of her work. I know we will learn a lot from this artist.
