Schedule of Las Cruces Meetings
Join us on Sunday, February 13th from 2-4 for an exciting demo on watercolor weaving! Southern Chapter member Mary Diesel will be demonstrating her method for weaving and mounting watercolor.
Although she considers the woven pieces as completed works of art, she also sees them as multimedia bases on which acrylic, rice paper and other media may be added.
Mary Diesel works in water media: watercolor, gouache and acrylics. She has been a member of NMWS-SC since 2018 and has shown her work at Aa Studio, MAS Art and Frame and Art Center in Las Cruces. Mary also showed her work and served as a steering committee member to help establish the Agave Artists gallery in Mesilla in 2019.
Newcomer to the Desert
Mark Cirzan and his wife Sue Davis moved from Illinois to Las Cruces in June 2021. They grew tired of long cold winters and gloomy skies, and both agree that relocating to New Mexico was a great choice! The landscape constantly amazes and inspires them on their weekly hikes, and also provides great source material for their paintings.
Join us on March 13, 2022 from 2-4 pm for Mark's demo (tentatively) on paintings skies and clouds which he has had ample opportunity to experience and interpret since moving to Las Cruces! We will have a short business meeting followed by the presentation starting around 2:45. We do not know if a recording will be made available for later viewing, but we will send out an eblast to both chapters if it works out.
More details to come
Mark your calendars for Patsy Blasdell's demo in April! Patsy lives in Ruidoso now and is really looking forward to doing this artsy activity. She'll be painting Ravens by Moonlight in her loose wonderful style. Stay tuned for photo and more details!
