Susan Raine  – Next General Meeting – Jan 14

Susan Raine  says:

I believe in channeling my creative urges to produce unique works of art. The inspiration for my work comes from nature in the form of composition, color and mood. My latest passion is developing abstracts and overcoming the fear of creating really big mistakes. This is how I start the process.

I do not expect to complete a painting in an hour, it takes time for me to find solutions.
I will be showing the process and taking a few risks, knowing eventually that it will work out.

Materials I will be using
• brushes – big cheap
• credit cards
• palette knives
• unprimed cradled board – no one wants to pay for frames
• acrylic paint
• charcoal,
• water soluble pencils
• oil pastels
• newspaper
• brayer
• gesso or glue

Next Juried Gallery Show

Our Juror for October 30this Pat Moberley Moore. Pat lives in San Leon on the Galveston Bay, South of Houston.

As a sculptor in bronze, clay, limestone, metal and glass, Pat Moberley Moore’s sculptures are about capturing emotion in 3-D.  Of her work she says, “My vision is not political, nor do I care to look at the darker side of ourselves or our world.  I endeavor to speak to the inner life and to the beauty of the earth and her charges. “

She has a BFA and a BS in Education from the University of Houston and has studied with such notables as Eugene Daub, Lincoln Fox, Bruno Lucchesi, and Sandy Scott.  Pat has been in many exhibitions, both juried and invitational and has received high awards. Her work is in numerous collections, including Former First Ladies Roslyn Carter, Nancy Regan, and Barbara Bush; Willie Nelson and Walter Cronkite.

Fall Show and Sale: Second Nature

The work is underway on our Fall Show & Sale on November 2-4 with the theme of “Second Nature”.  All WVAL members who participate are urged to enter at least one piece pertaining to this theme for a People’s Choice Award. This is in addition to the artwork entered into the show.

For those scratching their head on what “Second Nature” may mean it is simply our interpretation of nature from a second-hand perspective.  Actual nature is “First Nature” and our visual interpretation of it is “Second Nature”.

We are excited about all the possibilities.

The Texas Bold Beauty Project

Bold Beauty Project of Texas

The Bold Beauty Project was started over a decade ago in Florida as a way to highlight women with disabilities and to celebrate their courage and beauty. A number of exhibits have taken place since then, including in Washington D.C. and in Philadelphia. Now the Wimberley Valley Art League is bringing it to Texas! Already, hard at work are many of the talented photographers of the Art League as well as some additional recruits. The goal is to build a body of about 20 large scale fine art photographs, and display them throughout the State, starting with Wimberley!

The plan is to show the photo exhibit at The Messina Inn in Wimberley for the “grand opening” on Friday, January 11th. Then the exhibit will move on to San Marcos’ Walker Gallery in the City Activity Center where it will hang for two months. During this time, the exhibit will also be hung at the Austin City Hall with monthly receptions throughout the year. We are beginning talks with the gallery in the Texas State Capitol and hope to display there in the April timeframe. Additional plans are to move the exhibit to San Antonio and other points in Texas as we surface availability. We are expecting a number of dignitaries will attend our openings and we are in touch with the Governor’s scheduler.

This is a big project for WVAL and will bring much notoriety to the League and to Wimberley. If you would like to help with this very worthwhile project, contact Bob Cook or Jan Fitzhugh. We will be looking for people to help with the logistics for the exhibits, being docents at the Messina Inn for 3 hour shifts, working as greeters during the receptions, helping to locate galleries in Houston and DFW, assisting Tom Wiley with public relations, and probably more tasks that we haven’t yet defined. Everyone can be included.

Currently Art League members are searching for more models of diversity, including age, race and type of disability. If you know of anyone who would like to be included, please contact Bob Cook at Bob is serving as the “commander” of this project, which already includes at least 25 WVAL members.
