Artist of the MonthBrenda Armistead Brenda Armistead is a 30-year Austinite and tech-sector veteran. When her company downsized she dove head first into life as a working artist.

She creates mainly in wheel-thrown and carved porcelain, and enjoys figure sculpting, painting, sewing, and machine embroidery; often combining techniques for a uniquely exuberant body of work. Brenda has exhibited in numerous non-CAS venues and has also worked as exhibit coordinator for 2013 and 2014 East Austin Studio Tour group shows. An avid student, Brenda funds her art studies entirely through local sales and online at www.grannygoodfish.com.

Presidents Message

Can you believe it is September and it is still 100 degrees HOT!  Speaking of “hot” we have several activities planned for the remainder of the year that are “hot” off the press.  Such as we will have another “Juried” show

in October with CASH awards.  Martha will discuss this exhibit in our September meeting.  We also had a very successful show at the Link & Pin Art Gallery with sales during the month of August.  I want to thank each of you that came to the reception and for inviting friends and family to attend.  We had so many people at the reception that some ended up on the patio entrance way.  I want to thank you for bring food and beverages to the reception as this was a perfect selection and the right amount of food brought.  Mozelle Marks set the beautiful table for the reception and Jane Fier and her husband Bill Fier worked all evening as the servers.  We had out of town and out of state guests attend.  Debra Watkins, owner of Link & Pin was as excited as I was during the 2 hour reception. We did a great job at this show.

I have cleaned my art closet out for oil painting products.  I did not realize just how much paint I had.  I will be bringing lots of oil products (brand new) as door prizes for the September meeting.  So if you are an oil painter, the door prizes this month will be terrific.  One day I may be able to see the floor in the old art closet and will discover goodies I didn’t know I had.

Our October meeting will be a great meeting with Lisa Wright, manager of Asel’s to show and share new art supplies and how to use them.  Lisa has been doing this for CAS for several years.  So prepare to be amazed with her October program.

I look forward to seeing your smiling faces in our monthly meetings so be there or be square. Can you believe I have been saying that since I was in junior high.  Sharon
