March 15, 2015


Our March meeting was filled with lively discussion about our next challenge: "Urban Graffiti" and some great Show and Tell.

Check this link to read the Wikipedia definition of graffiti. It is more broad based than at first imagined.

Show and Tell included some amazing works in progress on the Urban Graffiti Challenge and some amazing finished works by our remarkable members!

Laurie Bucher showed a collaborative piece she did with her son, who is a painter. It was a social commentary, profoundly executed. This will be her entry into Urban Graffiti.

Urban Graffiti is a juried show and will be displayed at the Road to California show in 2016.
Please check this link for further details on entries for Urban Graffiti.

The recent show at Muzeo in Anaheim included two pieces from member Linda Anderson.
Her piece, The Grand Guard, was one of the pieces and it was sold to an Orange County collector.
Congratulations Linda!!!

Trish and David Charity each showed off their entries for Urban Graffiti. It is inspiring to see all the various interpretations of the theme.
