Demo by Jeff Bramschreiber

We were very fortunate to have artist Jeff Bramschreiber speak to us on February 28 on “Getting Ready for a Show.” For many of us who enjoy participating in exhibits and art shows, Jeff provided a plethora of helpful information that was relevant not only to exhibiting artists but insights your Art Shows Chair will definitely keep in mind and implement in the Guild’s future annual shows.

Jeff has been pursuing his passion for art for over 40 years in pastels, acrylics, watercolor, felt pen, pen and ink, and graphite. He taught classes at Triton Museum of Art for 12 years, and is now Triton’s President of the Board of Directors.
