Presentation content:

"I will be speaking on my background as a painter and what led me to become an artist and ultiumately a plein air landscape painter. My talk will focus on the practicalities of plein air painting, and my own particular take on it, including my interest in fantasy/narrative/exaggeration. I will also discuss the effect that teaching full-time at Lake Tahoe Community College has had on my own artistic production and my professional future plans. At the end of the talk, I would, in addition to answering questions regarding my work, like to use the time to address concerns that the audience may have regarding their own work, plein air painting, etc." –-Phyllis Shafer

Art, art, ART create 2d, 3d works of fun and images that stun.
Close the museums, burn the books, stop the classes, disperse the ateliers,
trash the supplies and the new ideas?
What kind of life have we got now? A community on "sterile-oids"?
Abdicate? Sure why not. What has art ever done for you? It's someone else's problem, anyway.
Or donate? Art alive, art revived, art penetrating, art consoling, and extolling.
It's your choice, add your voice.
Be great, be your best, do not procrastinate.
If you've got it, the art lover's love, the dreamer’s dreams
If you can help, please donate.

We appreciate your donation!
