Abstract BRIGGade
Today (12/15/17) at the meeting, we loved the artwork panel of Bob Lembcke “add some color” to it. Get a picture of the original at: “add some color” or an enhanced version at “add some color”.
This enthusiasm became the group “challenge” for our January 12th meeting.

Named after Eva Briggs, the Abstract BRIGGade encourages all artists interested in abstract art. Briggs, a vital force in the Santa Rita Art League of GVR, was honored as a “distinguished artist” from 1992 to 1995 by the Green Valley Art Council. She created a list of 52 things to consider when painting and called it a Manifesto for painting.
For new people who have never been to a Briggs meeting we always like to have a show and tell. We like to work on a theme each month. You do not have to stick to that if you want to display another work. Great feedback is offered and help on developing your style and design.

Monthly Meetings

The Abstract BRIGGade meets once a month on the Friday after the SRAL general meeting. At the meeting, artists discuss their abstract art projects, give helpful critiques, talk about techniques and presentation of their work, plan shows, and exchange ideas that foster non-representational art.

Each month, the Abstract BRIGGade challenges artists to paint in abstract form something like “joy” or “morning” or “to paint in an unusual size or shaped canvas.” Responding to the challenge is not a requirement for attending the meetings. The group welcomes all art work to be critiqued or enjoyed as the artist wishes, and those artists with nothing to show can still participate in the discussion.

For more information email Bonnie Nelson (or call (520) 207-1895) or Nan Lux (or call 820-8031).

Next Meeting: Feb 9th, 9:30 AM at Santa Rita Art League of GVR studio.

You can see the winning entries for current and past shows at shows.
