NOVEMBER 2019 LUNCH WITH ART

 

West Plains Council on the Arts (WPCA) will host “Lunch with Art” for current and prospective members on November 19, 2019, from noon till 1p.m. in the meeting room at The Hampton Inn, 1064 London Lane, West Plains.  Angela Bullard will demonstrate Wool Needle Felting techniques.

Angela Bullard has been an art lover from childhood, always experimenting with different techniques and mediums to see what can be created. Bullard studied art in college and has attended many classes and workshops in Chicago and regionally. Since moving back home to West Plains she has received many awards for her eclectic work at juried and non-juried shows at the Harlin Museum.

 

Angela has dabbled in watercolor, oils, colored pencils, acrylics, wax, pastels and fibers. She stumbled across the art of needle felting while in a fiber phase working on her crochet skills. The technique requires a sharp, barbed needle that is “stabbed” repeatedly into loose wool fibers. This friction from the needle’s barbs makes the wool felt or bond together. The next logical step was to make landscapes! Wools come in a gorgeous array of colors and have the benefit of a textural appearance, so paintings have a real feeling of depth. Historically, wool felting has been used to make shelter and clothing as well as decorative pieces. Come and enjoy learning about the fascinating and beautiful technique of needle felting with Angela!

 

After the brief program, WPCA board members will open discussion on current plans, programs available through Arts Alliance partners, and invite discussion regarding future arts endeavors for the area. Here’s an opportunity to open conversation with current board members and contribute to the future of arts in West Plains.

 

Lunch will be catered by Dawn Dionne. Cost of the luncheon is $10 for WPCA members, $15 for non-members. Reservations should be made by November 9, and may be made online through the November Lunch with Art event page, by calling Paula at 417-293-2325, or via email info@westplainsarts.org

AUGUST 2019  LUNCH WITH ART

West Plains Council on the Arts (WPCA) will host their first “Lunch with Art” event for current and prospective members on August 27, 2019, from noon till 1p.m. in the meeting room at The Hampton Inn, 1064 London Lane, West Plains.

 

Regina Willard will demonstrate her quick painting techniques, painting a bouquet on a 6×8 small canvas, and will have some pieces for sale as well. Willard’s paintings are sparked by familiar surroundings, subjects she enjoys observing. She considers her style impressionistic with emphasis on brushwork and notes of color.  “When I paint, I want to give something of myself whether it be an emotion or feeling by way of a color or a mark made. I’m most intrigued by movement of paint and how a mark laid next to another in a different direction can give a subject life…… drawing the viewer to engage in my work.”

 

After the brief program, WPCA board members will open discussion on current plans, programs available through Arts Alliance partners, and invite discussion regarding future arts endeavors for the area. Here’s an opportunity to open conversation with current board members and contribute to the future of arts in West Plains.
