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.

We have several Art Shows each season.

It all starts with our Membership Show in the Fall. Those members wanting to display their 2D work and compete for prizes are eligible to enter. Paintings hang in the 3rd Floor Gallery of the Richardson Public Library. A judge will select winning entries and awards which are handed out at the monthly meeting. The prospectus explains rules and guidelines for hanging. Most work is for sale and is a great opportunity to purchase local art.

In the Winter, our Young People’s Scholarship Show hangs in the 3rd Floor Gallery with representation from our talented Richardson high school students competing for cash awards.

Following the Young People’s Show is the Rosemary Cheney Memorial Art Show. This showcases the RISD Elementary students. Forty-one schools send their best art to be displayed in the Library’s 3rd Floor Gallery, with the show traveling to the RISD Professional Building for more viewing by the public.

The Spring Show gives artists a chance to display and compete for prize money and awards. This show is open to any 2D artists in the surrounding communities who are over the age of 18. Sales of the artwork are encouraged. This is a great venue to purchase art pieces locally. The monthly meeting after the show hangs will present awards and prizes chosen by our judge. See the prospectus for rules and guidelines.

Our premier show is the Regional Juried Art Exhibition which is displayed at the Eisemann Center for the Performing Arts. This juried show is open to qualified amateur and professional Texas artists. Prize awards totaling over $6900.00 in cash and merchandise are presented at a reception honoring entrants and their families and friends. Refreshments and music are part of the festivities. Sales of the artwork are encouraged by patrons.

Our final show is a casual display of any artwork that members wish to hang in the 3rd Floor Gallery during the summer months. We call this our Simply Summer Show and Sale.

See below for details about any of our shows. To see photos from previous shows, go to the Archives page.
