Artist of the Month - Monette Keil

Reception • February 11th • 4-7:00pm Leo Yeni

Monette Keil considers herself a gypsy because she might have been born in Riverside, CA but grew up all over this state, which has made her into the woman she is today. She was raised by her Nana who was a very strong and hard working woman and taught Monette how to persevere through the hard times. Monette currently lives in Lodi with her husband and daughter and works out of her home studio.

Art has always been a part of her life, it’s the way she has coped with all the changes that occurred in her life. She is very abstract thinker when it comes to life which has been a great theme throughout her work. Her work is known to be bright, peaceful and a reflection on her soul. Monette has been working in acrylics for over ten years.

She considers herself a self taught artist even though she did attend art classes at San Joaquin Delta College and took a semester at the University of the Pacific.

In creating her work she is able to open herself up to the possibilities of sharing her soul to the world. She hopes members and visitors enjoy her work for a lifetime and that her pieces become a part of your story.

Demo Artist of the Month - February 9, 2017

Raoul Mora

Raoul Mora

The next session will be a continuation of subject matter from the beginning session in 2016. Please bring anything you have previously been working on. Getting back to SAL’s roots which started as a critique group, we will reinitiate what was known as The Third Eye by Gail Hazard who was our President from 1960-1962. This was a meeting of members wherein they would bring a painting they were working on or recently completed and have the group go over it to see if there were any improvements that could be made. Serious art students will tell you that many times you learn more at critiques than sometimes doing.

Raoul will conduct the critique at the near end of our drawing session, so bring in one piece of your r ecent work as well as a pencil and paper for the drawing portion.
