Please join award-winning multi-media artist, Grace Rankin, as she demonstrates watercolor painting on the" impossible" surface called Yupo (synthetic glossy paper used in printing) on Wednesday, January 4, from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. at The Fremont Art Association Centre. This event is free and the public is welcome. There will be audience participation, if time permits.
Rankin is primarily a self-taught multi-media artist with a current focus in watercolor and mixed media/collage. She is a signature member of Society of Western Artists and Alliance of California Artists and is a long time member of FAA and the gallery. Rankin has studied Yupo technique with experts George James and Mark Mehaffy. Her art works have been exhibited in many prominent public facilities in the region. Collectors of her art include Mr. and Mrs. Clint Eastwood. The artist has 25 years teaching experience in watercolor, both on location and in the studio.
The event will be followed by a two-day workshop January, 21 and 22, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. (both days), at the FAA Centre. More details will be provided later. For more information, please call the centre at (510) 792-0905 or visit www.FremontArtAssociation.org.
