May 2017 Artist of the Month

Barry Eigen

I’ve been a weekend painter off and on for more than 50 years. A professional speaker, I traveled weekly to cities from coast to coast presenting full-day seminars for business owners on Mergers and acquisitions. Finally, with the gentle encouragement of my wife, I retired in 2012 to paint full time. So these days I travel anywhere my imagination takes me and I never have to board a plane. My medium is Acrylics. Landscapes and still lifes are my favorite subjects and my focus is developing nuances in color, tone and texture.

Welcome to CAS!

The Creative Arts Society is an Austin based, non-profit 501(c)(3) thriving arts organization actively promoting the development of the “Artist in Everyone” for the expanding growth and diversity of our community. Our vision is to be a vital presence in the community inspiring: Cultural enrichment, Community participation, and respect for diversity. Our goal is to increase awareness and appreciation for and through the Arts.

Presidents Message

It’s Spring Festival time! I hope those of you who are participating in art festivals or the upcoming WEST Austin Studio Tour have wonderful experiences and meet many new contacts and collectors. It’s so important to get out of the studio and interact! So even if you aren’t showing your work, there are many opportunities for seeking some inspiration among your fellow creatives.

We’ve wrapped our exhibit at the Inspiration Gallery at Riverbend Church and it was very successful and we’re already scheduled for 2018. Currently, we have a show hanging at the Bass Concert Hall on the UT Austin campus. The exhibit is during the same timeframe as the acclaimed “Phantom of the Opera” and we’ve already had a sale! Members, be sure to watch your inboxes for more Calls for Art and be sure to respond quickly with your submission, because they do fill up fast.

Not a member yet? We can fix that, check out all the benefits of membership here: http://creativeartssociety.org/join-us/artist-information/

We would love to have you come be a part of our art!

Make it an artful day,

Leslie Kell, President
