2014 Fall Fine Art Show - Get Ready!

Once again we have been very fortunate to secure a nationally awarded, recognized and highly accomplished artist as our judge.  Rusty Jones  ( www.rustyjonesstudio.com ) has agreed to judge our show following in the footsteps of Nancy Boren, Cecy Turner, Andrew Wages, John Pototshnik, Sharon Serrago and other outstanding artists and judges. 

 The prospectus and entry form will be mailed around the end of June to all current members with additional information and forms available on our website (www.rockwallartleague.org). 

We also need volunteers!!

May Meeting Presentation by Sharon Serrago

RAL's May membership meeting on Wednesday the 28th will feature a group critique by artist and instructor Sharon Serrago. Following our brief business meeting at 6:30, Sharon will invite members to submit their finished pieces or works-in-progress for a professional evaluation. Everyone is invited to bring pieces to the meeting, but understand that time limitations may make it impossible for every piece to be critiqued.

Sharon has a relatively long relationship with the RAL, having provided similar group critiques in the past, once serving as the judge in our annual Fall Show, and maintaining friendships with many of our members, some of which developed during her time as an instructor at Artists' Showplace Gallery. Her paintings in oil, acrylic, and watercolor include abstracts and florals, as well as landscapes which are often based on her travels in Italy and elsewhere. She currently offers classes for beginners to advanced students from her studio in Richardson, concentrating on Design, Color, Abstraction, and Collage. She also offers workshops in Italy.

Sharon is a member of the Texas Watercolor Society, the Southwest Watercolor Society, and the Society of Watercolor Artists. In addition to her work as an artist, Sharon has a long history in education.
