The SAA Featured Artist for February is SAA member Doris Rice. Her show Travel Adventures with Doris: Europe/Quebec is on display at the SAA gallery through the end of February. Opening reception on Friday Feb 2nd 4-7 PM.
Doris and her fellow travelers will give you a glimpse into the sights and scenes from the locations where they set up to paint. It might be a sketch on location or a painting done at the actual spot, all bringing immediacy, highlighting the moment. Every country has it’s beauty, every artist sees it differently. This is one of the joys of group painting! Absorbing the culture by being still and soaking in the sights and sounds, gives memories far richer than just a snapshot. It is an amazing way to see the world! Join us for a look! Locations include: Quebec City, Brittany France, Tuscany Italy, Greece, Sicily Italy.
Doris is also hosting an SAA Gallery Talk on Sunday Feb 11th 2-4 PM at the SAA gallery where she will tell you all about the programs and how the travel workshops started. She has many years of experience with guiding painters to exciting places. Come and hear about her wonderful painting adventures! Sketch books will be available to look through, as well as other paintings in addition to the exhibit.
