American Impressionists Society

I still have a couple more paintings from Italy to share, but first I wanted to pass along info about the American Impressionist Society. The 13th Annual National exhibit is currently on display through November 30th at thEckert and Ross Gallery in Indianapolis, Indiana. 
And last weekend, the opening accompanied a 3-day symposium with painting demos, panel discussions, slide shows, and a tour of the Eteljorg Museum featuring master artists Kevin Macpherson, Carolyn Anderson, C.W. Mundy, Calvin Liang, Quang Ho, Kenn Backhaus, Clayton Beck, Zhiwei Tu...To learn more about the AIS, go here.

Here are some of the conference highlights:

                                                          C.W. Mundy's study:
                                                        Calvin Liang's sailboat demo:

                                                              Zhewei Tu's figure demo:

                                              And while there was a lot of work and serious effort, there was also the usual dose of humor from these knuckleheads -or turkeyheads as the case may be...

And a big thank you to the Tennessee artists whose hard work and behind the scenes efforts to organize and plan this event: 
Dawn Whitelaw, Paula Frizbe, and Lori Putman!

and everything under the sun and moon is fair game."
