MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

Next meeting is October 15, and the Demo Artist for October will be James Gilbreath demonstrating Acrylic. The Meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Richardson Public Library basement meeting room.

Born and Raised in Texas, James’ love of art began in elementary school. And every art class he had in the duration of elementary school, then jr. high and high school, he excelled and won ribbons. At the age of 15, James was introduced to oil painting and his love of art grew to a whole new level. He continued to enter art shows and win ribbons, including the State Fair of Texas several years running.

After several decades of painting realism, James began to think that was an awful lot of time and effort to end up with something that could have been achieved in seconds with a camera. With the help of very talented art teachers, he switched over to acrylics and began to loosen up and use bright colors. 

Now James uses his imagination more than his eyes to create his view of the Texas Hill Country that he loves so much. He is having more fun painting than he ever thought possible. If he’s not painting, he's thinking about painting.

James’ work adorns walls from Houston to San Antonio to Fredericksburg, Texas and, of course, all around the DFW area where he lives. He hopes to one day move to the Texas hills, but until then he will continue to paint them in his own unique style.

Highlights of November Meeting, 2018

November Demo Artist - Justin Burns

We had a different kind of demonstration at our November 20th meeting. Usually, we have an artist demonstrating their own painting technique and style This month, we had a Justin Burns, a representative from Golden Artists Colors, Inc. The GOLDEN Acrylics lecture and demonstration is a fun informative, educational and fast-paced presentation of all the products GOLDEN has to offer.

The Lecture covers information about the different types of acrylic paints, mediums, gels, pastes and grounds. The lecture also covers a technical review of acrylics and their varied application possibilities, techniques in working with mixed media, printmaking, and the review of GOLDEN's newest products including OPEN acrylics, High Flow acrylics and QoR watercolor. This lecture gave us some new insights that can be added to our creative processes.

All members received a free information packet, hand-painted color charts and a bag of free GOLDEN product samples to take home. Justin is an artist himself. His work focuses on spaces that are left as they are, weathered and abandoned fragments of a time once lived. His paintings have been exhibited in Dallas/Fort Worth and have been featured in publications such as Studio Visit Magazine and Friend of the Artist. If you are interested in his artwork or any of his workshops and lectures, you can learn more about them on his website at:
