Artist Round Table Bi-Monthly Zoom Session Follow-Up Newsletter (11-03-2021)

Greetings, you are receiving this newsletter because you are registered for our Artist Round Table Bi-Monthly Zoom Sessions. We will be sending a follow-up newsletter like this after each session to highlight the key points discussed during the roundtable. We hope that you are having a great and art-productive week! The Boss Lady is back! Thank you, everyone, for your welcome back emails. I was happy to see Anthony alive and the studio building intact.

Congratulations to Debra Keirce for earning first place in the Mystery, Magic & the Macabre Juried Exhibition. The exhibition opens on October 1st and runs through November 1st, 2021 at Deines Cultural Center, Russell, KS.

More complements to Debra for securing a third place in Mountainside Miniatures Show with Mountainside Artists Guild in Lakewood, CO. Browse her painting Starting Over (4.25x5.75") and many other miniatures by following this LINK.

Thank you Julie Beck for sharing your Checklist with the group.

Congratulations Julie! She has secured another well-deserved Gold Medal in the 2021 New England Regional Juried Exhibition. Her painting Perspective: The Vanishing Point (30x16", Oil on Canvas Panel) was chosen from nearly 350 submissions! Each year, the exhibition provides a significant opportunity for talented New England artists working in the realist tradition to exhibit their work and compete for prestigious awards.

And even more praise for Julie! Her painting The Salt, The Sugar, and Flour (20x20", Oil on Canvas) took second place in the fall members’ show: Seasonal Changes, hosted by Copley Society of Art, Boston, MA.

Thank you, Diane Davich Craig, for recommending Glow Cube Paints. Bring your paintings to life even after dark. Create brilliant glow-in-the-dark highlights and focal points. When the room lights dim, your painting will glow.

Thank you, Shawna Lampi-Legaree, for sharing your awesome color studies this week. The finished artwork is titled Commander Chris to Ground Control (24x36", Acrylic on Cradled Board). Check out the artists below. who also make good use of the color study (including an awesome video from Julie!)
