MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

Richardson Civic Art Society meets the third Tuesday of each month. Each month we have various artists demos. Our next regular meeting kicks off in the fall, September 16, 2014. Our demo artist will be Linda Hardy.

Internationally known artist, Linda Lucas Hardy (b. 1947) was named as one of the 10 Artists to watch in 2008 by Southwest Art Magazine. Her articles and artwork have appeared in The "Artist's", "International Artist", The American Artist "DRAWING", "Southwest Art", "American Art Collector" and Northlight Magazine. Her work has also been published in four art books and one text book.

Linda is best known for her stunning paintings done in colored pencil. In 2007 she won the CIPY Award and the EXPY Award - the two highest awards given by the Colored Pencil Society of America. Linda has the distinction of being the only colored pencil artist to have won both awards in the same year. In 2012 she won her second EXPY Award, making her the only colored pencil artist awarded the EXPY twice. She is also the only colored pencil artist to have won the International Artists Magazines Grand Prize Award which she received in 2005. In the December/January 2013 issue she was the Third Place Winner in the Favorie Subjects Competition. Her work has been shown in more than 60 national and international exhibitions and she's won an equal number of awards and honors many being Best of Show.
