Thursday at the Emmet O’Neal Library we will have a general meeting and demo by Gayle Hurley.
Gayle Hurley is a southern artist who has worked in a painterly, representational style for the past 30 years. She has been an active and integral member of MBAA since 2002, and she has participated in gallery events and shows all over the region, both in solo and group exhibitions. While portrait painting has been her primary focus, she is currently engaged in a season of exploring a looser, more abstract style and simpler figurative work. This past summer Gayle attended several workshops to explore other styles and mediums, and we are fortunate to learn a bit of what she learned in her demonstration and discussion entitled: Using Watercolor to Depict the Shiny and Luminous Subject with Drama.
Over the years, Gayle has taught watercolor portraiture, plein air painting in oil, and has conducted several workshops for children, teens, and adults. A woman of many talents, she is a wife, mother, grandmother, and beekeeper!
