Guest artist demonstrates collage
Submitted By Sachie Johns
Prominent and award-winning local artist/teacher Grace Rankin will be The Fremont Art Association's February Guest Artist. Rankin will discuss and demonstrate the versatile use of torn paper collage: accenting a watercolor painting, to "fixing" a failed piece, or as your primary medium. The event will be held Wednesday, February 6 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at The Fremont Art Association Centre/Gallery in Niles-Fremont. This fun and informative event is free and the public is welcome to attend.
Rankin's recent collage piece "Charlie" was a winner in an F&W Media Mixed Media competition, which will be published in a new North Light book, "Incite: Dreams Realized," available in September 2013.
Grace Rankin is primarily a self-taught multi-media artist with a current focus in watercolor and mixed media/collage. Rankin has studied design and collage and portraiture with nationally recognized artists Gerald Brommer, Mike Bailey, and Ted Nuttall. The artist has been teaching watercolor for the past 25 years, both on location and in the studio. She also teaches in Europe and on cruise ships periodically. She is a signature member of Society of Western Artists and Alliance of California Artists and is a long time member of the FAA and the gallery. Her art works have been exhibited in many prominent public facilities in the region. Collectors of her art include Clint Eastwood.
