SHOW AND SHARE

Beginning in 2019, the Artist of the Month feature was dropped and a new discussion period called “Show and Share” was added to the monthly meetings.

Artists may bring in any art pieces they wish to share with the group. This can be either a finished piece to share, with some discussion about how the piece were created, or an unfinished piece for which the artist wants input from the group.

AUGUST 2019

No Show and Share was held during the August Plein air experience.

JULY 2019

Gary Johnson, Artists del Norte’s photographer, brought in his “Brown Pelican in Florida” which he showed us in June, with some changes.    Gary was able to use PhotoShop to “cut” the bird from his photo (this involved outlining the entire bird with all its details) and pasting it onto another of his photos of the sky. He tried to place the bird so that the clouds mimicked the bird shape, to complement the bird. Wow!

ARTIST OF THE MONTH

We encourage our artists to bring in a recent piece of art to every meeting to be in the running for an Artist of the Month Award. Our members vote on their favorite and the piece with the most votes is our winner for the month. You get an award ribbon, your photo taken for the newsletter with a little "blurb" about your piece and now you will also be added to the Artists of the Month Gallery. There are no themed categories for this currently. Just paint what you like and bring what you wish. Here are some of our past winners!
