Our February meeting will be on Tuesday, February 17th starting at 6:00 PM at The Church of the Nazarene at
200 E. Tyler Parkway.
Our presenter will be Shirley Whitworth Bertram, she will talk about and demonstrate some of the special effects used in creating miniatures. Many of these techniques can be used in full sized pieces of art or home decor as well.
There will be a number of wonderful examples that are truly pieces of art, some of which will never be made again.
Her work will be shown as well with the understanding that these small figures do not walk and talk when the lights are out. There will be time for questions.
Shirley has been active in the International Guild of Miniature Artisans, achieving Miniature and Fellow titles.
She has taught workshops for miniature clubs and shows. She retired from shows in 2010 because of physical limitations. Her miniature work is not only in International museums, but in a number of museums in the United States. It is truly awesome.
Artists and art lovers are invited to come and socialize, bring artwork for Show 'n Share, get free advice from professionals, and enjoy light refreshments. A short business meeting and presentation will begin at 7:00 PM.
