August 14, 2019 Program 1:00 p.m. Featured Speaker: Alicia Farris
“Art and the Journey”
National Avenue Christian Church Gallery
1515 South National Ave. Springfield
Alicia Farris will talk about her art journey as an artist and her approach to creating art and teaching. She will also talk a bit about her technique of painting her favorite subjects, will have visuals and will demonstrate her process in watercolor.
Alicia’s work has been recognized in multiple National and International exhibits. She was recently featured in The Art Of Watercolour Magazine published in France and circulated to 36 countries, but she was equally honored to be included and honored with an award in this year's National Exhibit of Watercolor USA right here in Springfield! Her work embodies the emotion of her subject, as she captures light and color to tell her story. She is excited to exhibit a new collection combining some of her favorite subjects: people, landscapes, urban scapes, and some familiar local scenes.
Alicia Farris has been painting professionally and teaching for over 20 years. She loves to share her knowledge and passion and gains incredible inspiration when she teaches her workshops.
Alicia said: "Some of the artists who have greatly inspired me are Fealing Lin, Don Andrews, George Kauntoupis, Marilynne Bradley, and Sandy Baker, just to name a few. With art, I feel that I’m on a continual and wondrous journey. I am constantly inspired to create, I expect that will continue as long as my heart does."
