Call for Art: Ravages of Time

We will be accepting artwork for our upcoming show, Ravages of Time, on Friday, April 21, 2017 from 10 am to 6 pm and on Saturday, April 22, 2017 8 am to 11 am at the Gallery.  We are excited to announce our Ravages of Time show will be juried by Chuck McPherson. Over nine years as a watercolorist, Chuck has garnered hundreds of awards for his paintings, earning triple Signature status with the National Watercolor Society, the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies and The San Diego Watercolor Society. He served as Third VP on the 2011 NWS Board and two years as the Member Shows Director on the SDWS Board, plus a concurrent three year stint as Newsletter Chair on the Board of Directors for the San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild. His latest position was 1st Vice President on the Board of Directors of the Foothills Art Association.

 This intuitive artist's medium of choice is watercolor and he paints full-time, following his passion and building a reputation. His   artwork has been called '...a unique blend of draftsman's skills and the playfulness of a mind young-at-heart.'

Chuck entertains large and intimate audiences with a quick wit and a 6" brush, flamboyantly embellishing his painting with props borrowed from the crowd like lipstick and coffee, giving his transparent watercolors a unique "voice".  He will also be holding a special Paint Out at the Corona Heritage Park on April 23 from 10 am to 3:30 pm.  There is still time to register.  Save your seat today!
