President’s Palette


We are excited to have June Dudley doing our September 12, 2016 member meeting demo.
She is a well known and sought after artist. She will also be hosting a workshop on Landscape
Painting for us November 2, 3,4 at the Art Center. The cost is $175 per person and will be
limited, so please contact Iva Banik to reserve your place. Read the section of this website
about the workshop and demo below and take the time to look at June’s website at
www.junedudley.com.

We are moving into the fall season, with our member show just around the corner and hoping
you have created some great pieces for that event. We will also be have a Youth Art Show
this fall in November, inform all the kids you know and get them to participate.

Chuck Close said ‘the best advice he has ever given a new artist, or anybody who would
listen to him, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for just a few times; the rest of us
just show up and get to work. If you wait for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to
strike your brain, you are not going to create very much work. All the best ideas come from
being the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you are sitting around
trying to dream up the next great art idea, you can sit an awful long time before anything
happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else that
you reject will put you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and
somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work,
and I find that is almost never the case.”

Hope to see you soon,
Charles Wallis
President
