Dear Members, Patrons, and Friends,

As promised, Fall is finally here. I hope you are enjoying the colors. Perhaps you got to some festival or football game or just some walking among the trees. My husband Ken and I have been dealing with a continuous stream of doctors and hospitals for the last 6 weeks. Fortunately we are beginning to see a positive end to all of it so hopefully I will be back to normal soon. Then who knows what normal is, right? For artist’s we are never sure and don’t you love being able to use that as an excuse. Enjoy fall and have a wickedly Happy Halloween. Be sure to come to the November 1, 2016 meeting. Our guest seminar instructor, Anne Abgott, will be delighting us with an exciting demo. The Board will meet at 6:00 pm. Our regular Meeting is at 7:00 pm.

From November 1 to November 3, 2016, the Fairborn Art Association will be hosting Anne Abgott for a 3-day workshop. You are invited to visit her website at www.anneabgott.com for examples of her work and a more extensive resume.

October 2016 Meeting Demo

Sheryl Scott was our Artist of the Month for October 2016. Sheryl gave a demo of her special artwork, quilling. Quilling is an age old art using strips of paper to design shapes and patterns. It was used to decorate baskets, tea caddies, trays, fire screens, and furniture in days gone by. Now it is used as an artform in frames, to decorate book covers, greeting cards, and for anything you can use raised or 3-dimensional objects on. It can be combined with paper or plastic flowers or leaves, or other objects. Sheryl started her demo by showing several books and articles on the subject of quilling. Then she gave a short history of quilling, which started out as metal filigree work in Egyptian times. By the 13th Century, artists mimicked this look with strips of paper, rolled loosely, placed on edge, and gilded to resemble precious metal. Quilling was very popular during Georgian and Victorian times among ladies, who could buy their paper strips with or without gilt edges, or cut their own from the pages of books. In the 18th Century, paper filigree was taught along with needlework as a proper pastime for ladies. It was also combined with shells, wax flowers, twisted wire, mica, and human hair. In Europe quilling was called paper filigree. It is believed the name quilling is derived from the feather quills said to have been used to roll the paper strips. Quilling spread from England to the American colonies. Its popularity faded during the late 1800s and not until the middle of this Century did quilling re-emerge, due in great part to the Quilling Guild of England (www.quilling-guild.co.uk). The North American Quilling Guild website is www.naqg.org.

SHERYL SCOTT BIO
My desire to be an artist started when I was just a child watching my father draw cartoons. He was asked to work at the Walt Disney Studios as a cartoonist but he turned it down. I didn’t really take art seriously until after 9/11 and I quit my medical assisting job. I had been doing that for 28 years. I felt it was time to give my creative side its reins! I decided to start creating handmade greeting cards. This is how I learned about quilling. I researched it, bought books, and self-taught myself how to do quilling. A few years later I found an art shop in Beavercreek. I learned more about art and taught quilling classes there. I also learned how to do colored pencil and watercolor projects. After the art shop closed, I was lucky enough to find Tom Kinarney. He has been extremely helpful teaching me about colored pencil. I also am learning from Joanne VonSossan. Between the two I have learned quite a bit. I was lucky enough to find the FAA. I am learning from some wonderful watercolor artists here.
My accomplishments include: a quilled peacock on display at George Washington’s mansion in West Virginia; a gallery showing of my quilled art at Wright State University; multiple quilled “Sun Art” pieces shown on the CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood Show. I have won awards for my colored pencil, watercolor, and quilled art in the FAA and Miamisburg art shows.

35th Annual Fairborn Sweet corn Festival
We are pleased to report that the 35th annual sweet corn festival was successful. We had some minor weather issues after 3 pm on Saturday but business was brisk up till 3 and then rebounded nicely on Sunday. We thank all the volunteers that helped make this event the success it was. Next year’s festival will be August 19 & 20, 2017, so when making your summer plans for next year leave some time to help with the festival. The funds generated from the festival are a major source of FAA operating funds and your volunteer time is critical to continuing the success of this event! Our first committee meeting for the 36th annual sweet corn festival is scheduled for October 25th at 7 pm in the FAA room–anyone interested is welcome to attend! We will provide a financial breakdown when all the details are worked out. …Submitted by Warren K. Brown, Chair.

ANNE ABGOTT WORKSHOP
From November 1 to November 3, 2016, the Fairborn Art Association will be hosting Anne Abgott for a 3-day workshop. I recently took a class from her in Florida and found her to be an outstanding teacher with great ideas and innovations to bring a colorful, award winning touch to your watercolor painting. Cost for the 3-day classes will be $250 for members, $270 for non-members. A $40 nonrefundable deposit is required to hold your place in the workshop. A minimum of 10 students is required. A registration form is attached.

Anne began painting in oils as a child and was mentored by Alexander Luke, one of the premier Canadian artists. She moved to Florida in 1998 and began working in watercolor. She is very influenced by the light and color she finds in Florida, and she has honed her skills with many, many hours of painting. She has found an art-rich environment in Florida and feels that the encouragement and friendship of the local artists are a big part of her success. She is an acclaimed mentor and true master teacher. She has been an “art mom” to her students, and many have gone on to become accomplished and award-winning artists themselves. She has conducted over 100 workshops and is in demand as a juror for many exhibitions. Her latest contract is with the Watercolor Art Society-Houston, or WAS-H, for a workshop and judging their upcoming National Show in 2016. Anne has achieved Signature status in seven National Watercolor Societies, not including the holy grail for watercolorists: AWS and NWS. You are invited to visit her website at www.anneabgott.com for examples of her work and a more extensive resume.

September 2016 Meeting

Our September meeting was highlighted by a very informative demo by FAA member Tom Kinarney. Tom is, in our eyes and those of countless others, an expert in the art of colored pencil/pen and ink. Tom first showed us various books and magazines on “how to” with beautiful finished artwork. He finished with a demo of an apple and how he applies the colored pencil to achieve the various colored areas of the apple and the shadows and highlights. In picture four, Tom demonstrated how one pencil could make a very soft (light) stroke or a very dark (heavy) stroke by using pressure. His touch allows for multiple layers to accumulate. His apple looks good enough to eat.

Dear Members, Patrons, and Friends,

Fall is coming, I promise. I personally believe our greatest invention ever is air conditioning. I am so grateful for it. I hope you have had a great summer and have had time to be creative. Maybe you took some new photos or got some new inspiration for paintings. We have some great demos scheduled as well as a fabulous guest teacher. I had the opportunity to study with Ann Abgott when I lived in Florida. She has some very unusual techniques that I am sure will enhance your skills. Looking forward to seeing you once again at our meeting on September 6. The Board will meet at 5:30. The regular meeting will start at 7:00. Tom Kinarney will be demonstrating his wonderful work with colored pencils. Be sure to join us.

SWEET CORN FESTIVAL
The Sweet Corn Festival is over for another year. I have heard it was a great success. I was there Sunday afternoon and probably due to the wonderful weather – cool and sunny – the grounds were crowded. After a day of unexpected rain storms Saturday, this was a welcome change for Festival workers and attendees. A big Thank You to everyone who worked this year. I am sure you will hear from the SCF Committee as soon as they get their heads back in place after running around for the past couple of weeks without them. No one works harder than this committee.
