The session was led by Liz Hutchinson, a leading artist in our community. Liz talked a bit about ways to look at art--objective, subjective, with imagination--and then asked for the first volunteer.

|"Rowing Ashore" by Lyn Jensen|
|Jane Patton's work|
|Michael Cahak's work|
It was an interesting and engaging 90 minutes. I enjoyed some of Liz' other tidbits of advice for the artists, like how to respond to questions about how long it took to create a painting ("35 years, 8 months and 4 days" -- i.e., the artist's lifetime) and to remember that "putting a frame on a painting is like putting a dress on a woman." I am already looking forward to the session next month on "How to Name Your Work" that will be led by poet Dorothy Howe Brooks. There's always something fun going on at the Visual Arts Center!
