Colored pencil on museum board
Hello to the talented artists of NM CPSA-219! I can’t believe how time flies and our next meeting is this Saturday, May 26th! Please take note of our new location and time for the monthly CPSA meeting on the CPSA Blog.
We are fortunate to have Martin Vela coming to visit us. Martin's artwork has won prizes in shows organized by the Colored Pencil Society of America, The Colored Pencil Society of New Mexico, and the United Kingdom Colored Pencil Society. Martin will be sharing his insight into the world of art in various media. In Martin’s own words “My works are attempts to recreate naturally occurring optical effects – effects of light and reflection and shadow, and of color and surfaces.”
Members who remember the 2006 International CPSA Convention here in Albuquerque may already know Martin and recognize what an incredible opportunity this is. It'll be a meeting you will not want to miss!
Sincerely Your Prez,
President, CPSA - DC219
