May Gen. Meeting with Jeffrey Dell

Jeffrey Dell, Graphic Artist

Jeffrey Dell, Graphic Artist

Artist’s Statement: I have been thinking about what should be in the lecture. I’m going to talk less as an absolute authority and more as an artist who has encountered many of the glories and struggles of color. I will talk some about Joseph Albers and other influential colorists. I will also talk about things I have learned in teaching color, addressing misconceptions and mistakes we all make as we begin to use it.
As an artist and teacher, I like to talk at least some about the physics of color and light. This doesn’t always have a direct bearing on making images, but it does get you to really question what you’re seeing. I do believe understanding some of the physics of light has helped me think about warm vs cool colors, about how to integrate local vs atmospheric colors, and other stuff. Understanding the basics of physics is also just fun and rewarding. I’ll likely introduce this tension between a science-based understanding of color vs an artist-based understanding as beginning with Goethe vs Newton.
I’ll also address additional aspects that help explain how humans perceive color (biology, culture, neuro-science).
Lastly, I am a practical person as well as one who loves the complex. So I’ll also offer my general “rules of thumb” for using color effectively in making images.

JJ Priour Studio: April 9th

JJ Priour, the sculptor priourstudio.com.

The WVAL meeting on April 9 will be at the studio of JJ Priour, the sculptor who won our River Monument competition. He will show us his studio and let us know how he makes his wonderful sculptures and what inspires him.  Works of his and those of his father, Damian, are on the grounds for our viewing enjoyment.  We will also get an update on the Wimberley River Monument project. JJ’s River Pillars sculpture was chosen as the winner of the competition. Check out his website at priourstudio.com.
JJ would like for us to arrive early enough to see the outdoor art in the sunlight, so we will carpool from the Community Center at 5:15.  Please be ready to go by that time. Steve Shellenberger will coordinate that activity.The studio is at 17120 Hamilton Pool Road in Dripping Springs, 78738. Go north on RR12 to Hamilton Pool Road, turn right and look for the yellow mailbox. We will walk around sculptures first at the house , which is the structure a little higher up the hill, then go down to the studio. We should be heading home around 7:30.
We look forward to sharing this special evening with you.

WIMBERLEY VALLEY ART LEAGUE

STUDENT SHOW

The Wimberley Valley Art League is eagerly anticipating its next show that will hang in the Gallery at the Community Center at 14068 RR 12.  It will be the annual Student Show which features art from our area schools including Scudder Primary, Jacobs Well Elementary, St. Stephen’s, Blanco River Academy, Danforth Junior High, Wimberley High and Katherine Anne Porter School.  Please join us at the opening reception on Friday, April 13 from 5 to 7 pm to view outstanding work by our young artists in the community.  You will see a diversity of media from acrylic, watercolor, collage, marker and 3-dimensional work.  The show is always a delight to view and fun to share the excitement with the artists and their families.  We wish to thank the Lion’s Club and the Civic Club for their generous grants that go towards framing the works.  The art remains framed and travels home with each artist at the conclusion of the show.

DANNY JONES ART WORKSHOP

ANY SUBJECT-ANY MEDIUM
DANNY JONES ART WORKSHOP

The Danny Jones Art Workshop is different from any other art workshop that you may have taken. “Having been an art teacher for 35 years, I know that it is important to build on each workshop participant’s own artistic abilities. I help them to progress at their own pace. For everyone to achieve the best of their artistic abilities, I constantly monitor and give each participant’s work constructive, individual attention.”
Each person is at a different place in their artistic search, therefore, I work with each participant individually by continually walking around monitoring each person’s work. Participants may work with any medium they choose; watercolor, oils, pencils, pastels, etc. (It can be a great time to try something you’ve never tried before and/or a time to mix media.) Each artist will need to choose the subject matter for their workshop painting or drawing projects – person, animal, landscape, still life, up to you. Bring the photographs (quite a few) that you want to work from, preferably photos that you took instead of magazine photos. Painters may want to have their subjects drawn on their paper/canvas before the workshop begins to save time. Should a participant feel uncomfortable about his or her drawing skills, he/she may choose to wait until the workshop begins to get my verbal help.
Should you have questions, please call: 817.707.9473 or email: joneswisener@hotmail.com
Please visit my website: www.dannyjonesartwork.com

The cost for this excellent opportunity (including lunch!) is $125 for WVAL members, $160 for non-members. The workshop is at the Wimberley Community Center from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., Tuesday, March 20, 2018.  RSVP to Kathie Carlson at kad7950@aol.com.
