Many guild members have taken classes from Doug Wright, a local artist and instructor of drawing, watercolor, acrylics and oils. At the December meeting, Doug will critique artwork. Bring as many works as you like to obtain feedback on your work. Doug will critique as many as we have time for.

Format is casual. Doug encourages CAG artists to be prepared with a number of works, with a particular request to those artists he knows to bring new or latest examples of their art or new directions they have taken with their works, mediums, etc. To ensure a lively presentation, he welcomes artists to think ahead about questions related to a critique that they would like answered.

Peggy A. Brennan will be our demonstrator at the meeting on October 25, 2008

Filed under: Meetings on 5:46 pm

Working in rich oils that capture the spirit of the old masters, Peggy A. Brennan presents a fresh look at the time-honored genre of still life! Focus is on the individual vibrancy of subject matter. A sensory quality pervades each image, as nature’s fruits, time-worn vessels are infused with properties of light, lustre, texture and color.’

Visit Peggy’s Web site at www.peggyabrennan.com.

We will have a white-elephant silent auction at our October meeting (in addition to our regular meeting & demonstrator) to raise money for the guild. So start putting aside those things you can donate to the auction. Doesn’t have to be art related but in good condition. No used clothing; what doesn’t sell, you take back home so bring things that will sell!

Time: 1 pm – 3:30 pm
Place: Campbell Library Community Room
Address: 77 Harrison Ave & Civic Center Drive, Campbell, CA 95008
