Sept 2023 Meeting Video Online

Our presenter for the Sept 18, 2023 meeting was Robert "Vic" Shuler.

You may recall Vic as the winner of the Best in Show piece "Triumphant Rain" at last March's Juried Show.

The Title of Robert's Presentation was: "What inspires the artist?" He shared a bit about his journey as an artist: what inspired him to begin, what has inspired him along the journey of his art education and continues to inspire him now.

During his presentation, he did a live demo charcoal drawing from an historical portrait. He showed us how to get started and develop it into a completed charcoal likeness and shared a wealth of wisdom.

We had great attendance with 54 members in person, 19 members by Zoom and 8 guests for a grand total of 81 participants! Thank you to everyone for joining the fun!
