MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

Our next meeting, the first of the 2016-2017 Season, will be held on Tuesday, September 20, 2016.

The September Demonstrator will be Walt Davis, demonstrating watercolor. Meeting starts at 6:30.

Walt Davis, signature member and past president of the Southwestern Watercolor Society, began painting in watercolor over thirty years ago. He studied first with Faith Helen Foust at Eastfield Community College then with Bud Biggs. He later attended workshops with Doug Walton, Louise Cadillac, Carole Barnes, Frank Webb, Mark Mehaffey, Richard Stephens, and noted bird artist John P. O’Neil.

Davis has taught watercolor, figure drawing, and plein air sketching at Eastfield Community College, Amarillo College, Panhandle Art Center, San Angelo Museum of Art, and in his studio in Commerce. He has conducted demonstrations and workshops in Amarillo, Brownsville, Dallas, San Angelo and nine other Texas cities.

Davis believes that pigment, dissolved in water, and applied to paper produces more luminous color than any other medium. Watercolor and acrylic are mercurial however-sometimes difficult, always full of surprises. He constantly weighs the importance of original intent against unexpected opportunities.

2015-Young People's Show


RCAS hosted the Young People's Scholarship Art Show featuring the artwork of Richardson Independent School District art students in grades 9 - 12. The awards were presented to the students on Monday night at the Richardson Library. Many thanks to Pete Quaid for Chairing this show and to Maureen Brouillette for judging it. And thanks to the teachers and students of RISD for their hard work and outstanding art. Claudia Caudill was kind enough to take these pictures at the awards reception, so a round of applause is in order for her work as well. Last, but not least, a heartfelt thank you to all of the volunteers without whom our shows could not exist.
