EBSQ Member News: Cathy Johnson Watercolor Demo

Johnson Demo (2)Friday, June 12
2nd Friday Art Crawl
5:00-8:00 p.m.
Olde English Garden Shoppe
115 E. Broadway, Excelsior Springs, MO 64024

North Light books artist and author Cathy Johnson will demonstrate her techniques for watercolor painting at the 2nd Friday Art Crawl in Excelsior Springs, MO.

Johnson is the author of 34 books, including 9 for North Light Books, (one of two major publishers of art books), the Sierra Club Guide to Sketching in Nature and The Sierra Club Guide to Painting in Nature, for the Sierra Club.

She has judged art shows all over the USA, and done a number of presentations and workshops for arts associations from Maine to Nevada, as well as offered field sketching classes at statewide Nature Centers for the Missouri Department of Conservation.

Johnson spoke to the first international gathering of the Sierra Club in San Francisco in 2005 on sketching and painting in nature.

She is currently working on a revision of her 1988 book, Watercolor Tricks and Techniques, and will be demonstrating some of the techniques included in that book.

Come see some of the innovative techniques in person, at 115 E. Broadway in Excelsior Springs, Friday, June 12.

Johnson regularly shows her work at Olde English Garden Shoppe, along with Polly Jaben, PhD, photographer of scenes from Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales as well as the USA.  Jaben’s eye for the perfect shot and Johnson’s watercolors and drawings work well with the boutique’s offerings.

The 2nd Friday art crawl will include a number of other shops and galleries in downtown Excelsior Springs, including Gallery 105, Frame of Mind, the Mercantile, and others.  There will be music, wine tastings, and food–join us for an exciting evening!

KiniArt Interview in BONE-A-FIDE MUTTS Magazine

From long-time EBSQ’er Kim Niles:

My interview with Bone-A-Fide Mutts magazine appears in their premiere issue (in the “Creating The Canine” article). The magazine is out now at BORDERS and Barnes & Noble stores.

Due to the writer dropping the ball, no images of my art were included in the article, but the interview was good and includes links to my website and Cafepress shop so I’m thrilled!
