Arts on Main resident artist Gary Shockley will be our guest presenter on Tuesday, December 13th for the end of the year Pot Luck celebration. Our guild members will be amazed as Gary tells a story using stunning images he creates in sand. Gary recently returned from presenting his show outside of North Carolina. He has a masterfully orchestrated method of mixing music and art to tell his stories. It will surely be a wonderful experience and a great way to end this fabulous year of art. Gaston County Art Guild members you should not miss this treat, mark it on your calendar to attend our final meeting of 2016. Bring a dish and find a good seat we begin at 5:30. Hope to see everyone there.
Our next meeting will be held at the main branch of the Gaston County Public Library on Monday, November 7th at 6:30 pm. Our Speaker will be Raymond Burton, Resident Artist @ AOM. Awards for the annual Miniature Show will also be given at this time.
Our next meeting will be held at AOM on October 11th at 6:30pm. Our speaker will be Stacey Pilkington-Smith. Stacey is a Mixed Media artist, Instructor, and owner of Gallery 27. Her presentation will be about Art Journals.
An art journal can be a record of your daily thoughts, a travel journal, an exercise or diet diary, a dream journal, a place where you jot down your goals or to-do lists, or… well, almost any record that you’d like to keep in a book or notebook.
They become “art journals” when you add any kind of illustration or embellishment to the pages.
Artists may bring their own sketchbooks. Each participant will leave with a list of journal prompts.
