MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

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

Our last meeting of the 2015-2016 fiscal year was held on Tuesday, May 17th. The May demonstrator was Rusty Jones demonstrating his oil painting technique. Our next regular monthly meeting will be on Tuesday, September 20, 2016.

Texas based artist, Rusty Jones, traces his earliest influence to his grandmother who was the first to place a paintbrush in his hands and encourage his interest in art. He vividly remembers her studio on the second floor of a historic home that once served as a stagecoach stop just outside of San Antonio. She would set up still lifes for him to draw or take him outside where she would set up her French easel and paint landscapes. "She had a crusty, difficult personality and could be as mean as a barnyard billy-goat, but when she began to paint you could see the joy in her face as she glided her brush across the canvas."

Rusty graduated from the University of Texas with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biomedical Communications and the University of Texas Health Science Center in Dallas with a Masters of Science Degree in Medical Illustration. He is a Certified Medical Illustrator and a Fellow of the Association of Medical Illustrators

For over three decades Rusty provided highly technical medical art for major pharmaceutical companies, medical product companies, medical journals, surgical atlases and ad agencies.
