Call to Order and Welcome
Meet a Member Presentation Ellen Eggerding, Acrylic Artist
Guest Speaker Janet Johnson, Pastel Artist
Meet a Member: Acrylics Artist Ellen Eggerding
Virginia native Ellen Eggerding’s pre-retirement life as a commercial property insurance underwriter and then as a licensed investment associate never included any drawing or painting. A decorative painting class in 2009 made Eggerding realize that she wanted to paint more than wooden trays and birdhouses. She studied with wildlife artist Robert Louis Caldwell for four years while developing her own realistic painting style. While Eggerding is attracted to a wide variety of subject matter, color is key—the brighter, the better.
Visiting Guest Speaker: Pastel Artist Janet Johnson
Janet Johnson will discuss her artwork, share painting tips, and show some of her creations in progress. An avid pastel artist and photographer, Johnson rediscovered her passion for art after retiring to Wilmington, NC, and has achieved success in her artistic endeavors ever since. She has won numerous awards in plein air paint-outs and area art shows, and her pastels have been juried into online international exhibitions.
January 10: Opening Reception 6:00 – 8:00 PM Leland Cultural Arts Center Gallery
Immediately after our January meeting, you’re invited to the opening reception of the Leland Cultural Arts Center Gallery exhibition celebrating the artwork of LCAC students.
