Our monthly Members Meetings are brief and open to the public. We welcome everyone interested in watercolor, the regional arts community and learning. There is always a demonstration by remarkable watercolor artist, and snacks are provided!
November’s artist demonstrator is Katie Turner! Love her statement –
“When I paint, I am deeply immersed in watching colors mix. It’s fascinating to play with paint – poking it – leading it – spraying it – coaxing it into walking across the paper. I almost always see shapes from nature, most always flowers.” ~ Katie Turner
Originally from Buffalo, Katie is a watercolor artist who loves working on slick surfaces. Exposed to the art world at an early age by her late mother, a watercolorist from Buffalo, Turner continues to develop her individual style with passion and dedication painting evocative, fresh and intuitive pieces.
Although Turner spent many years in the graphic arts field, writing articles, publishing zines and working with various media, she never strays far from watercolor.
