November Granbury Camera Club Meeting

Our next meeting is Tuesday, November 13 at 6:30 p.m. at The Shanley. We'll watch a presentation on Street Photography from Canadian photographer Bill Bruce who will join us via Skype. Bill describes street photography as, ". . . Candid scenes of life and human nature. . . a way to show our surroundings and how we, as photographers relate to them or experience them." This fascinating subject will encompass techniques and skills needed to enhance photogaphic story-telling whether at home or in a foreign land.
Bill and his wife Pat, who also loves to take pictures, live in one of the most beautiful places in the world — Calgary in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies. Since age eight when he received his first 35mm camera, Bill has honed his photo skills while capturing these awesome, rugged landscapes. Through the years, Bill has traveled the world, taking photos of people, city streets, landscapes and more. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from Bill Bruce!


November LGAA Meeting


LGAA MEETING TONIGHT
Monday, November 12th 7pm
Demo by: Martha Burkert

Lake Granbury Art Association is proud to announce that Dallas Artist Martha Burkert will do a demonstration on landscape painting Monday night November 12th, at 7:00pm at the Shanley House Center for the Arts located at 224 N. Travis St next to the Hood County Library. Burkett will show us how she simplifies and condenses what she sees into a refined, energetic composition. This is a free event and is open to the public.

Burkert splits her time between Dallas, Texas and Yarmouth, Maine. She grew up surrounded by the landscapes of Texas and appreciates the beauty of vast unfilled spaces. Maine’s landscapes, on the other hand, are more visually complex with seasonal changes. Burkert was compelled by the beauty of Maine to learn the technical skills needed to capture it. She started painting in 2000, and was quick to develop a keen sense of design.

Burkert often creates small paintings and oil sketches on-site. Additionally, she takes photographs in black-and-white instead of color because the chromatic range is too limited for her needs. Yet all these direct responses to nature only serve as references and jumping-off points for her. In the larger paintings Burkert executes in her studio, paint application, color resonance, temperatures, and commanding shapes become the artist’s focal points. Burkert states “The bigger the canvas, the more I push color and form in a more exaggerated direction”. The artist often experiments with color combinations until they feel right to her—an emotional and intuitive process that the artist confesses she doesn’t fully understand. The artist therefore, likes to distill her paintings to their basic elements. “There is a beauty in simple things,” she says.

And stay dry!"
