Laurel Daniel - November Guest Artist

Laurel Daniel is a well established and award winning plein air painter, formerly the president of the Plein Aiir Austin. Currently, she's a faculty member at the Austin Museum of Art.

Here's what Laurel has to say about ther Journey!

My lifelong love for nature inspires me to contemplate the landscape. As a plein air painter, I begin outside, working quickly to discern the shifting patterns of shadows and light. Back in studio, I try to paint with the same closely-observed spontaneity. Capturing a moment in time is an impossible task, but for me, an endlessly compelling one.

For more information about Laurel, you can visit her website.

October 2012 Guest Artist: Virginia Fleck

Howdy! I am not sure how to describe Virginia Fleck! Her work is based on recycling shopping bags. I think that her work is beautiful and fascinating... here how she describes herself on her website:

Since 2002, Virginia Fleck has been working exclusively with recycled plastic bags creating site specific, ecologically conscious art works that have been commissioned for several high profile, green building projects including the US Embassy in Rwanda, Whole Foods World Head Quarters in Austin TX, LeBonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis TN and Dell Children’s Hospital in Austin TX -the first hospital in the world to attain LEED platinum certification.
Fleck’s work has been exhibited at Art Forum Berlin, Pulse Miami and  New York and Arte Fiera in Bologna Italy. Her work appears in many prestigious collections including the permanent collection the United States Embassy in Kigali, Rwanda and the Marino Golinelli collection in Bologna, Italy.  Ms. Fleck’s work has been written about and reviewed on the web and in numerous paper publications including  American Craft Magazine, Public Art Review, Sculpture Magazine, Metropolitan Home, Western Interiors and Design, Austin Home, Glasstire,, Voice of Germany, Apartment Therapy, MoCo Loco, Houston Press, Houston Chronicle, Dallas Morning News and the Washington Post.
Fleck is a featured artist in the book, recently published by Random House: Craft Activism: People, Ideas, and Projects from the New Community of Handmade and How You Can Join In.
Fleck was born in New York City. She began making artwork in childhood and eventually studied at two art schools: Portland School of Art in Portland, Maine and at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts.  In 1990 Fleck moved to Austin, Texas where she continues her work as a visual artist.

WCAG Greeting Card Contest

WCAG Greeting Card Design Contest

 There are times when WCAG sends out greeting cards.  It would be nice if we could send out a card featuring the art of one of our members.  Therefore, we are going to have a Greeting Card Design Contest.  Here’s how it will work: 
This contest is open to current WCAG members only.

Any artist who enters the contest will agree (if their art wins the contest) to allow WCAG to use an image of the art for the purpose of creating greeting cards with the image of the winning art on them.  WCAG reserves the right to use the entire image, or any part of the image in creation of the greeting cards.  The name of the winning artist will be printed on the card.  The winning image and artist’s name will also be posted on the WCAG website and blog.  The winning art will be displayed on the WCAG wall in the Framer’s Gallery (at no charge to the artist) from October 3, 2012 to November 3, 2012. 

WCAG members will bring entries to the October WCAG meeting, Tuesday, October 2, 2012.  Each member present will be given a ballot to vote on the art they feel would best represent WCAG on greeting cards.  The best design should be one that can be used for a variety of purposes; ie congratulations, sympathy, etc.

Todd White - Photographer is the Guest Artist on September 4th

The 2012-2013 Art Guild Calendar is off to a great start, as we'll have photographer Todd White speak about his work. Todd is not only an Williamson County Art Guild member,but he works as a photographer, but also spends a lot of time photographing in India and has recently started Nomadic Routes Photography, a company that leads photography tours in India. Here Todd talks a little about his passion. My interest and passion with photographing people and “life” began during a month’s stay in India. The faces of the people and their everyday activities captured and touched my heart in a way that is hard to express. After the trip to India, humanitarian visits to Egypt, Kenya, Honduras and Ethiopia set the course for the next phase of my journey into photography. This led me into the role of a "visual storyteller." Shooting in both digital and film formats brings a distinctive look to my portfolio. This assures that each client receives photographs that reflect a unique style of photography. If you want to check out Todd's work, feel free to visit his website See you on September 4th and make sure to bring your artsy friends!

Georgetown Art Center
Renovation Budget Approved

Search for Managing Organization Begins

On May 22, after working for two months with several City departments and the City Manager's office to explore and address all issues involved in renovating Old Fire Station #1, Eric Lashley, library director and staff liaison to the Arts and Culture Board, brought the $400,000 budget to Council. This budget includes widening the sidewalks and redeveloping the pocket park adjacent to the building. The total amount was far more money than the Arts and Culture Board had ever imagined they would spend for a fledgling art center, but it is a realistic budget that will preserve and enhance the building's historic status and its desirability for any number of uses. Council approved not only the budget but the draft management agreement that will be executed with the organization that is selected to run the art center.

Legal notice of the opportunity to submit proposals for managing the art center will appear in the June 3 and June 10 editions of the Williamson County Sun. The deadline for submitting proposals is June 15.

Attention Artists: Do you need help finding the right gallery?

The subject of applying to galleries is frequent among artists. Much information about how to organize and submit a portfolio is available, but how do you know where to apply? What do you look for in a gallery? How do you find reasonable matches for the type of artwork you do? If this subject is of interest, I’m teaching a workshop June 26th at JERRY’S ARTARAMA in Austin. Drop me an email for workshop registration info at

Round Top Pottery

Hi friends!  Just finished this 5x7 painting of a small pottery jug nestled in front of two much larger pieces I found on a visit to Round Top, Texas - mecca for antique shoppers!   The pot is set off by a really cool turquoise stained wood table which has been weathered by much sun exposure - love the wood grain!

ART CENTER is approved

Howdy! I must confess that I was disappointed that not that many artists showed up to the City Council meeting last night! The good news is that City Council has given the okay for the Art Center pilot program. The next step is to name the non-profit that will be managing the art center... This is a huge step that has been years in the making! It's very exciting news for the arts community.

Artist America Martin returns to Austin for a solo exhibition at Wally Workman Gallery

BY MICHAEL GRAUPMANN 05.05.12 | 03:00 pm French artist Paul Cezanne once remarked, "One does not replace the past; one only provides a further link to it." A revolutionary figure in the art world during the early 20th Century, Cezanne knew a thing or two about respecting the great Impressionists who influenced him while still forging ahead with his unique style that paved the way for Modernism. Taking a look around the enjoyable new solo exhibition of Los Angeles-based artist America Martin at Wally Workman Gallery, you'll see a similar unapologetic homage to the confident contemporary artist's influential teachers like Gauguin, Rothko, Picasso and, yes, Cezanne. To read the full article, please visit the Culture Map website. I just ran into this story, and never heard of the artist, but I can tell you that I am going to be going to this show. Maybe I'll see you there... Nick

This past week Amy Guadagnoli, who makes wood block prints, spoke at the
Williamson County Art Guild meeting. She cuts her blocks, and prints each one by
hand, making a mono-print. I was so inspired that I decided to make my own print, on a much smaller
scale, using the Staedtler Master Carving Block. I cut a piece 31/2 X 61/2 and drew on the design.
These blocks are so easy to carve; it's like cutting butter! Having never carved anything quite this size,
it was a little challenging. I did not want it to be too perfect, but more organic looking, so I think it
worked out pretty well. I tend to make circles and curves when I make marks; this is what happened.
The connecting circles depict how everything is connected in the universe. The dove of peace flies in
the spiral sky above the rising sun, and the wheel is a sign of moving forward. I used some screen
printing inks on rice paper (this is the bright one). Lumiere paints were used on the black paper,
and black on the white rice paper. I'm sure I will be doing more of these because I love the unexpected, the surprises, that you get with the whole process.

The Blue Dove

Sonia, from Stinger Studio, has been leading some of us in different ways of doing things.
The dove was started with a very colorful background on heavy watercolor paper.
I then outlined the dove and painted white around it to leave the negative space of the dove.
It looked too white for me, so I sanded the background with sand paper until some of the background color
was peaking through. I like it better this way.

For those of you who have your own blog, and would like to protect your art, it's a simple easy fix. Just copy and paste the code into your blog's template. If you're not sure how to do that, just follow these instructions.

1. Copy (hi-lite it and [control-c]) the following line of code
<meta content='nopin' name='pinterest'/>

If any of the following images are too small for you to see
what's going on, just click on them to enlarge them.

2. Go to your blog's dashboard and click "Design".

3. In the top left click "Edit HTML".

4. Now Look for <HEAD> and place your cursor right behind it and hit "enter" to add a blank line. Then paste [control-v] that line of code you copied from above into the blank line.

5. Click the "Save Template" button and you're done! And your artwork is safe from being pinned on Pinterest.
