The CCWS JULY "1 Night Members Show" combined with a PotLuck dinner was a large success. 

NOTICE:   The January 26, 2016 program meeting will have Tricia Reichert as our Demonstration artist. She will focus on portraits.  The meeting will take place in the Wesley Room of the San Luis Obispo United Methodist Church (1515 Fredericks St, SLO).  Social time (6:30 pm) will be followed Tricia Reichert's demonstration. 

Tricia Reichert was born and raised in England. She studied Home Economics and Textile Art at Battersea College, London University and then taught high school for many years, before relocating to the US with her husband.

From a very young child she had always had a yearning to create, and that original, inventive journey has taken many different forms over the years including drawing, painting in all media, fabric panels, costumes, theatre sets, illustrations, prints and even unique wedding cakes and invitations… and always with a little teaching along the way.

The opportunity to seriously focus on art began more than twenty five years ago. Over time, Tricia has become a specialist in the practice and theory of portraiture, particularly in the mediums of pastel and watercolor. Her other areas of expertise and interest include many forms of printmaking and clay figure and bust sculpture. She is currently a professional commissioned, portrait artist with many paintings in private collections in the US and Europe.

Tricia is also an art teacher working with groups and individuals on a wide range of classes and workshops, both privately, and for the last twelve years, through Cal Poly’s Extended Education division.         These are examples of Tricia Reichert's portraits. For more of her work see her website at .
