Our next RCAS meeting will be January 15, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. Location is the Richardson Public Library. The January Demo Artist will be Janis Krendick, demonstrating Pastel.

“My interest in art goes back to childhood, and I have worked in a number of media over the years.” She obtained a degree in “studio art” as they called it in the ’70s, concentrating on drawing and design. She has worked in watercolor, but now enjoys pastel, loving the immediacy of the medium.

She has taken a number of pastel workshops over the past ten years to improve her skills and learn new techniques. She focuses on her love of the landscape, and strives to interpret what she sees in a sensitive manner. “I have taken several workshops from various artists including Ann Templeton, Doug Dawson, Ned Mueller, Lorenzo Chavez, Bob Rohm, Bill Hosner and Richard McKinley.”

Janis’ impressive collection of awards dates back to 2009 when she was chosen for the International Societies’ Convention Calendar (May), among other awards. She has also been an exhibitor at many events, including the Texas & Neighbors Regional Show, March - May, Irving, TX. Gallery representation includes The New Gallery in Dallas, Linus Gallery, Pasadena; and JRBArt, Oklahoma City. She was an exhibitor in the Plein Air Painters of New Mexico Juried Exhibition.
