Our June Luncheon will be at Boomerangs Restaurant on Friday, June 16 at 11:30AM.

We will be putting our art on the walls on TUESDAY, MAY 16TH. Yes…that soon!

Demonstrator Bob Rhodes tells us that because of the multi steps in the process, and the length of time to complete a piece, he will show each step of the way and show how those elements all come together for the final collaged frame.

From Bob: It was only after retirement that my interest in creating art began. Having been in many of the worlds major art museums, I visited them only to view, not to study. however, the brain being the absorbent sponge that it can be, must have retained a lot of what I had viewed; for in retrospect I can see some influences of my favorite artists in my own work. My art education was minimal at best, and was primarily experimental in nature; guided by the inspiration of artist Marie Wordell. Marie’s insistence was that whatever creative urge I had was to come from inner sources, not from the exterior. My excitement comes from creating a cohesive canvas of interesting textures, colors and shapes. That is why the field of non-objective abstract, is the arena that encompasses much of my art. I don’t have a deep subliminal message connected to the meaning behind my art work. My main hope is that the viewer can relate to the energy and feeling of my creations, and that each piece might stimulate some pleasurable sensation during the viewing. I have used most of the art worlds media in my creations. My favorite is acrylic, and my current attention is in the field of collage.

The following members went to Mesa College to judge the Spring Art Show: Mae Crauder-Davis, Marilyn Nelson, Charlotte Pearson and Roxy Bohrer. We issued four $50 prizes and also four honorable mentions including Chalk pastel, oil on canvas, etching, ceramic and mixed media. Quit a nice variety and originality was shown.

Photos of awards will be on display at the June luncheon.

Barbara Bartosik provided us with a wonderful docent-led tour of the Art Museum at our April meeting. From Pre-Renaissance to Modern Art, we were shown beautiful examples of art from each era.

Also: you cannot deduct your dollars spent for raffle…er…um…’opportunity drawing’ tickets. If you have any questions I will do my very best to answer them…Mae
