Recent art show of watercolors and acrylics by a CMW member at the Whitney Center. Who it is?
We are in a deep freeze outside, but the art in St. Cloud is hot!
Our December newsletter is out. It has been emailed to CMW members and you can download it here.
Highlights from the December newsletter include more about our new board members and upcoming shows including the February CMW show in Little Falls. There are new exhibit opportunities in the area (outside of CMW) and you can read about that on the Opportunities page. And members — don’t forget to attend our member Christmas Party/meeting on December 9th at Atonement. We will be sharing food, art talk, a viewing of the Transparent Watercolor Society DVD and exchanging original art Christmas/Holiday cards. (That’s optional). Come and join us Monday night! The meeting will include new information about a new art opportunity starting in January for our members also. Don’t miss it.
Members have art shows up and around the area. Read more here. If you have art in a show in the area, let us know. And as a reminder, send in your art bio and four samples of your art so you can be featured here on our member gallery. This is a feature of being a CMW member. Our art has gotten a lot of attention from our website, so it’s worth it.
CMW members enjoyed a demonstration of watercolor techniques by Andy Evansen on Monday, November 11 at our member meeting.
Andy emphasized doing value studies before starting a painting, and displayed several of his own during his demo. His value studies include larger shapes with light, medium and dark tones, painted with one color. He does paintings that seem nearly effortless, but a lot of work goes into their planning, drawing and value studies. You can see a gallery of photos of this demonstration here. There is also a link to an article from Watercolor Artist magazine that highlights Andy Evansen’s techniques.
The Fall 2013 CMW Members Show is now on display at the Paramount Gallery, St. Cloud Minnesota.
This show will run October 7th through November 11th at the Paramount Gallery. Come and see this beautiful display of art work! See it now or during the next St. Cloud Art Crawl in November.
An album of photos of the show is here and on our Facebook page. Not all paintings are pictured so be sure to see this unique art show in person.
