At the June meeting of the Weatherford Art Association, artist Susie Monzingo demonstrated her skill in applying gold leaf to her paintings. Every month there is a new demo for all media types which includes oil, watercolor, pastel, mixed media, photography and digital art.
At each meeting, an Artist of the month is selected. Artists bring their paintings to compete for the honor. The artists of the month of June were Patricia Harder, first place for her watercolor “Bird on a Doorknob”. As the winner of the first prize, Patricia’s painting, along with additional works, is on display at the Doss Cultural & Heritage Center in Weatherford.
The second place winner was Caroline Vaughn for her photo titled “Evelyn”. This photo is displayed at the First National Bank town center location in Weatherford. Third place went to Jerry Shidal for his acrylic work titled “Texas Barn,” which you can see at the Community Credit Union on the South Main.
Weatherford Art meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 6 p.m. at Barlow Hall located at 125 S. Waco St. in Weatherford. Guests and artists who wish to learn more about their craft are welcome. To learn more about the Weatherford Art Association, visit meteofordart.com.
