MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

After the summer break, our next regular monthly meeting will be September 17, 2019 at the Richardson Public Library basement meeting room. The September Demo Artist will be Sheliah Lonian. Sheliah will demonstrate her technique in Colored Pencil. The Meetings begins at 6:30 p.m.

Sheliah says "I have drawn as long as I can remember. Some of my earliest memories are drawing on a chalk board and nothing was better then getting a big new box of Crayola Crayons.

I have had a life-long passion of learning and have taken numerous classes in art in several mediums and styles while trying to create my own individual style.

After workin many years primarily in medical management, I was able to retire to begin the career my heart longed for.

I work in colored pencil, acrylic, graphite and watercolor. I focus primarily on animals while sometimes working with flowers and still life.

I have been blessed and very honored to have won numerous awards in my career as an artist.

I currently have artwork displayed at the Wylie Fine Art Gallery in Wylie, Texas."

Heights Recreation Center

A new solo show has been installed at the Richardson Heights Recreation Center today. It will be on display until September 24th during all regular hours at the rec center at 711 W. Arapaho Road in Richardson. The artist, Lindy Ballew, is a member of RCAS and the Southwest Watercolor Society, Lindy recently retired from over 40 years as a practicing architect and is now free to direct all his efforts towards his passion for painting. He discovered his love for watercolors during the many art classes at Texas Tech University. Much of his subject matter for paintings comes from his time in west Texas and New Mexico. His work has been shown in many galleries in the US and in Belize. His paintings have been inspired by his many travels and the encouragement of his wife and family to continue this path. Lindy will be again offering his art in shows across the southwest in future art festivals You can visit his web site at www.lindysstudio.com for future shows and to see all his current works.
