Many of us at Oakwood Artists League have returned from various places spent during the summer. It was reported to have been a little cooler and rainier than usual from wherever our artists stayed.
We are getting ready for various events coming up. On October 14 Susan Plouzek will teach a workshop to our members on portraiture. It is always nice to “brush up.”
The Small World Show in Oakwood will be held October 25 from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. in the Oakwood Arts and Craft Room. The dimensions of each painting cannot exceed 8 inches by 10 inches. For some of us, that is a real challenge to paint so small. But the smaller paintings fit almost anywhere such as your kitchen, bathroom, or even standing alone on a coffee table or shelf. It is a good time to find affordable pieces of art for that special someone on your holiday list, or perhaps for the person who has everything. Each painting is truly unique. If you’re not in the market for art, come in and say hello.
In addition, some of our artists are showing and selling their work elsewhere. Bob Kwait, Michael Milgroom, Joann Horner and Mary Van Deman are selling art at Affordable Framing. Susan Plouzek donated a large painting to the new John R. Dobson Administration Center in Cottonwood.
We are grateful to all of you who share their talents with all of us, no matter the talent. Isn’t it great to discover diversity?
