Our membership meeting on Tuesday, May 23 at 7pm is also our annual “member benefit” meeting, at which Del Ray Artisans offers a program of interest to our membership. This year we have engaged well-known local artist and teacher, Lisa Semerad, to give a talk, “The Criteria of Quality: A Juror’s Perspective.” Ms. Semerad works in several different media and teaches drawing, figure drawing, colored pencil, pastel, oil and acrylic painting, and design and composition classes at The Art League School in Alexandria.

During her presentation she will describe elements necessary for successful, engaging and award winning artworks. As time permits, she will also critique selected artworks submitted by several members. We can all learn from her advice and apply it to our own art. For questions about submission/selection of artwork for critique by our speaker, contact Michele Reday Cook at Programs@DelRayArtisans.org.

This is one member-benefit meeting you won’t want to miss! Please join us at 7pm for refreshments and a brief business meeting, to be followed by Lisa Semerad’s artist talk and critique. Free to DRA members.

For questions about membership and the membership meeting itself, contact Drew Cariaso at Membership@DelRayArtisans.org.
