Southern Oregon Society of Artists announces a Juried Critique at Oct 26 SOSA meeting. The juror for works brought by members will be local artist Norm Rossignol. Norm began painting watercolors in the early 1980s. More than just pretty landscapes, he strives to capture scenes that convey a narrative and engage the viewer on a deeper level. His paintings have sold nationally and internationally. A juried member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon and the Pastel Society of Oregon, Norm co-founded the Plein Air Society of Southern Oregon, is a member of Southern Oregon Society of Artists, and teaches watercolors, pastels and acrylics locally.

Members may bring a single original work to the meeting between 6:15 and 6:30 to be juried.

Butte Creek Mills Celebration and PASSO Paintout,

Saturday’s Paintout at Butte Creek Mills was a great event.  Music, crafts, food, gun fights (I could have done without guns while I was painting), perfect weather and lots of great artists showed for the event.  It was still going strong when I left at 3:30pm. Here are a few pictures from the event.

Dear PASSO Members,

Well if there’s one thing about mother nature is you can count on is you can’t count on her.  Due to thunder storms, showers, lightning and high wind predictions, we are moving our first outing to May 11th. at the Butte Creek Mill at Eagle point. See you at the Vintage Fair Celebration.  Please RSVP Ann Grossman @ 541-879-0592 and let her know your coming as a PASSO Member.  Watch for our banner “PASSO.”

A Painting Outing:
On Saturday, May 11 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. is a plein air event at the Butte Creek Mill in Eagle Point. It is part of the Vintage Fair celebration. The paint-out will take place behind the mill on a large lawn. I’ve painted at that location several times and it is a pleasant spot. Participants are invited to bring paintings to sell as well as to paint. If interested, contact Ann Grossman at 541-879-0592 or email aeg46@charter.net This is a fun event and a chance to be with other like-minded artists. Hope to see you all there.
