FAA welcomes acrylic artist Oakes to January meeting


Last updated 1/14/2019 at 3:09pm

FALLBROOK – Acrylic artist Joe A. Oakes will be the demonstrator Saturday, Jan. 19, at the Fallbrook Art Association meeting which begins at 8:45 a.m. At 9:15 a.m. Oakes will critique one art piece per member.

The business meeting begins at 10:15 a.m., followed by Oakes’ demonstration and lunch from 10:30 a.m. to noon. The public is invited to attend. He will teach an additional workshop for those who are interested from 1-4 p.m.

“Each painting is an emotional response to color… real or imagined but always felt,” Oakes said. “All of us, in varying degrees, have become blind to the colors of our world. The mind dictates the color of things without true observation. Giving those colors back to each of us through painting is my goal. Taking the time to see the least obvious colors in everything is the start. Then I make those colors bigger, bolder and brighter so they become the star. That is the spark needed to awaken our desire to know color better and enjoy it in our everyday lives.”

The painting workshop is open to both beginners and advanced painters, members and nonmembers. The cost for members is $40 with $35 going to the artist and $5 to the association, and the cost for nonmembers is $50 with $45 going to the artist and $5 to the association. To register, call Carol Reardon at (760) 731-6677. Participants need to register in advance by sending in their checks to reserve a spot. Reardon will email registered participants a list of supplies to bring and the class agenda.
