A Holiday Message from Our President

I look around astounded by the talented artists in our local chapter CPSA-219! Although we will not meet again until January 2012, I look forward to our next show & tell to see your wonderful works of colored pencil art.

We ended this year on a high note with the show at the Old School House Gallery. I hope we do more venues like this in the future to promote colored pencil and show the public our exceptional art. The programs at the monthly meetings are informative with hands-on learning, but the real gift is the open sharing of techniques by members. You are the reason for this organization and “Thank You” for your time & participation at the monthly meetings.

Happy Holidays & see you in January 2012!

Jeff Stephenson, President DC 219

Old School House Gallery Opening TONIGHT!

Two Receptions In One Trip!

You are invited to the opening receptions for The New Mexico Colored Pencil Society's and a 2-person show featuring new work by V. Adair Peterson and Lois Bradley tomorrow, Friday November 4th from 5-8 pm.

The Colored Pencil Society's show is in the back alcove gallery and features stunningly beautiful work by some of New Mexico's finest colored pencil artists. Come take a look at these unusual, interesting and colorful works of art! The show will hang through the end of November.

The main gallery features an eclectic blend of acrylic, egg tempera, fused glass, watercolor and oil pastel by well-recognized artist V. Adair Peterson and recent Local Treasure honoree Lois Bradley. Adair's egg tempera paintings are known for the luminous, glowing colors which capture the rock formations, landscape and environment of the Southwest. Lois's most recent series, Quilted Landscapes, explores the connection between family and landscape in deeply saturated oil pastel and mixed media.

Come enjoy a glass of cider or wine and mingle with this diverse group of artists! See you then!
