GENERAL MEETING & DRAWING DEMONSTRATION

CURRENT EXHIBITION & CALL TO ARTISTS

The El Paso Knitting Guild, which meets monthly in the Crossland Gallery, is conducting a needlework contest. Participating members will create knitted clothing for teddy bears. The dressed and named bears will be on display in the gallery for about three weeks in June. Anyone who visits the gallery during that time can vote on the best-dressed bear. Two prizes will be awarded. All the bears will then be presented to the El Paso Police Department to give to children in crisis. This is a joint venture of the El Paso Knitting Guild, the El Paso Police Department, and the El Paso Art Association. Chriss Gerbino and Helene Solomon are coordinating the contest for the Knitting Guild, the Police Department liaison is Norma Becerra of the Victims Services Unit, and Karla Zanelli, EPAA Office/Gallery Manager, is arranging the exhibit. The bears should be in the gallery and ready for your vote starting June 10th. Be sure to stop by and vote for your favorite.

SOLDIER ART WORKSHOP PROGRAM

Ft. Bliss Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) held a free Family Fun day on May 9th at the Old Fort Bliss Replica/Noel Field. Several EPAA Members participated in the fun. Krystyna Robbins, Bob Adams, Connie Weaver, Dorian Clouser, and others did demonstrations, and MWR’s Robin Fox set up a children’s draw/paint exhibit.

 

Here is a photo of EPAA Member Dorian Clouser. Dorian, known for her beautiful watercolor paintings, participated in the family fun event and had time to paint a beautiful sunflower.
