MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

This year, due to COVID-19 we are having our monthly demos virtually. This allows us to invite national artist as well as our local artist.

September 15, 2020
Virtual Meeting

Our Demo Artist for our first "virtual" meeting will be Deanna Thibault, demonstrating Mixed Media.

Deanna was born in a small town in Iowa and moved to Fresno, California when she was 10. Her art education “bloomed” in Fresno where she received her BFA from California State University. She now lives in North Texas.

Her husband joined the Air Force after college so they spent the next ten years in Arizona, Florida, California and Kansas as her art career as a teacher and artist reached “full bloom”.

All of the military relocations required her to take many jobs as she continued her teaching all age levels. After the Air Force, they spent the next 27 years in San Diego and then Tucson, Arizona after her husband retired.

Deanna is a signature member of the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild, Arizona Aqueous Tubac, Western Federation of Watercolor Societies, Contemporary Artists of Southern Arizona and the West Texas Watercolor Society. She received the Dana Bartlett award at the National Watercolor Society All Member Show.

You can see her work at: thibault4art.com

SHOW MOVED TO AN ONLINE "VIRTUAL" SHOW

Due to the increased spread of the Coronavirus and a number of other circumstances, we have decided not to hang the RCAS Regional show, but instead, hold the show on-line Virtually.

Because of this, there will be no awards reception that was originally scheduled for September 12th.

Our juror, Deanna Thibault was asked to judge the show from the images submitted. We have provided her with the JPG's of all invited entries so she can enlarge the images as needed to get a closer view of the paintings in making her choices. Once her judging is complete, we will announce the show winners on this page and VIA email.

We know everyone is disappointed in not hanging the show, but we believe the virtual show is the safest way to protect the invited artists and their guests.

Awards will be mailed to the winning artists along with a hard copy of all winners. A presentation to the Richardson library and City council of the Best of Show winner will be scheduled at a later date.

Thank you again for participating in the show and good luck in the awards selection.
