The February meeting of the Weatherford Art Association featured a 'alla prima' (completed in one setting) painting session with guest artist Pamela Blaies. Blaies, a Texas artist, demonstrated her techniques, using oils and a linen canvas, to complete a small still life painting in about an hour.
WAA members voted on the February Artist of the Month and watercolorist John Allen was awarded first place with his painting titled "Old Barn." Allen’s painting will be on display in the lobby of the First National Bank until the end of March. Second place was awarded to Jo Cheatham with her oil painting called "Is that A Cat I See?" Her art is on display at the First Financial Bank on the Weatherford Square. Third place was awarded to Karon Richardson with her dynamic painting called "Alaska.” Her work is on display in the lobby of the Fort Worth Community Credit Union until the end of March.
The WAA Parker County Secondary Student Art Show registrations run March 6-8 and the show will be open for public viewing on March 10 through April 6 at the Firehouse Gallery, 119 Palo Pinto.
