Alamance Artisans

I've joined an art guild - Alamance Artisans. It's completely different than being a part of a co-op in that this is a group of artists, meeting regularly to share accomplishments, news, and anything else relating to art. A few times a year there is a festival or show specific to the guild, but other than that, there are no hours to work in a gallery...well...because there is none!

Their studio tour was in October, and while I decided not to sign up this year, I volunteered to take pictures of half the tour. This made me go out and enjoy the beautiful studios, taking pictures along the way. Quite a few artists that were apart of Art and Soul with me participated in the tour, so it was good to talk to them as well.

There are a few other events coming up that I will be apart of, one of which I will share in a day or so!

Art Show at the Royal Bean

My art is on display at the Royal Bean until May 9th. (Click on the title to their website).
They are located across from Meredith College in Raleigh and down the street from both NCState and the state fairgrounds.

Here are a few other photos taken from my phone.

Finally, an update!

Dianna, pastel on Sennelier tinted paper, 9" x 12"

I haven't given up on the blog! ...I just didn't have anything new to show. The Art & Soul Studios that I was apart of closed last fall, so we were busy bringing our art home.

I recently signed up for another pastel class, so my goal is to have a new piece every week. Most of the students are working on one piece throughout the 6 week session, but I'm choosing to play with pastels this time and learn about the medium rather than trying to perfect a piece of art. (I can do that at home if I want).

I've updated the portrait since I took this picture, but the color in the other photo is not as accurate, and I'm not happy with the updates I've made.
