There was no website announcement of the May meeting because it was
scheduled after the website maintainer had gone on vacation.
May 19 - Nancy Cagle - Tools You May Need After All
Cagle gave a
very interesting and informative program entitled, "Tools you may Need
After All". She showed us a number of painting aids, and explained how
can be used. They included her paint apron (top right),
color tacks used to stretch paper on a frame, graph paper used to
enlarge a drawing, a 4” x 14” quitter's ruler, a 3 foot T-square (top
left), a 12" ruler which had cork on the back, a three-sided architect's
ruler, a tooth brush to make snow or other speckles on a painting, a
proportional wheel scale to help enlarge a picture
of various sorts (circles at lower right), a combination brush and water
holder (lower left), and more. Many items were displayed and given to us
to examine. Tuesday Morning, located behind the Cotton Patch Restaurant
is a good place to find some art and craft items.
Thanks Nancy for the good ideas. Thanks
also to those who brought refreshments and to those who brought
paintings for Show and Tell.
Some the Show and Tell paintings
are shown below. From them, “Washday” by Gloria Meadows was chosen for
use on the postcard announcing the opening reception for our exhibit at
the Arboretum this summer.
