With our current situation and advisors discouraging large gatherings right now, we have cancelled our monthly meeting that had been scheduled for next Thursday morning and will reschedule Tom Finlay’s demo hopefully for a meeting later this year. Also, in an effort to be cautious, especially since we were planning an indoor show this year, we have cancelled our annual spring show. You can stay active in our group by participating in our Facebook page here:
At our first evening meeting of the year, we were treated to a wonderful program from Birmingprints owner/artist Michael Molay. He shared his vision for his process and techniques for his beautiful art prints. Thanks to Michael for a great demo!
We were treated to a wonderful demo by Chris Cruz today at our first meeting of 2020. She showed us how to take art pieces that we did not love how they turned out and repurpose them as all kinds of things, from bookmarks to collage to mixed media to purses and more. Chris is a wealth of knowledge and so generously shared her ideas with us.
The Mountain Brook Art Association sponsors two annual shows, the Spring Festival in April, and the Holiday Show in late November or early December. All current members are eligible to exhibit based on SHOW GUIDELINES and the events are free and open to the public. Anyone living within a 25 mile radius of Mountain Brook is welcome to join.
Our association focuses on the traditional arts of two-dimensional painting and drawing. Any artist may join , but only painting, drawing and fine art collage are allowed in our annual shows.
