A reminder that eighteen (18) of CVWG’s member artists are showing their work in a curated Small Works exhibit at Crozet Artisan Depot from September 1-30. A sampling of the art being exhibited can be seen in the flyer, above.


News from Members & Close Friends

Member Susan Rosen reports that her painting, Puzzle, shown at the top of this post, recently received an honorable mention award in the Annual Judged Member’s Show at the Shenandoah Valley Art Center in Waynesboro.


Jane Skafte continues to teach online art classes at Charlottesville’s The Center. Her “Landscapes in Watercolor” class will be held on Mondays starting on September 21; details can be found here. Her second class, “Drawing from Nature”, starts September 23 and details for this class can be found at this link. Jane is a past member of CVWG, was scheduled to be one of our program leaders this year, and created our colorful CVWG logo.


Prior member and long time friend of CVWG Christine Rich reports that several pieces of her art has been accepted into a showing at the Peninsula Fine Arts Center in Newport News, Va as part of a “Generations of Wyeth” exhibition running through November 8. if your travels take you near Newport News, consider stopping by and admiring Christine’s art along with the Wyeth’s.


Online Resources

One of my personal favorite artist-mentors continues to be The Mind of Watercolor by artist/designer Steve Mitchell. Since 2014, Steve has used the web and YouTube videos to spread his particular, offbeat approach to producing great art and helping some of us would-be dabblers. You can view his introductory YouTube “issue” at this link, visit his website, follow him on Facebook, or connect by any of the other methods he publishes on each of those sites. I know that at least one other CVWG member also follows Steve’s work as well.

Strathmore Artists’ Papers is out with their summer newsletter and they have a free online “Creative Watercoloring” class starting on September 8. You can view their news at this link.


As always, you are invited to contribute images of your art to our Gallery, become our next Featured Member Artist, contribute and article, share a link you find of interest, etc. It is simple…just send our Webmaster an email.
