Watercolor and Pastel Artists at CHAW
Iona hosted a lunch and artists’ talk with exhibiting artists Helga Thomson and Norma Schwartz. Helga, a printmaker is artist in residence at Iona and Norma, a sculptor is special guest artist. Their work hangs until April 30, 2015 and there will be a free Meet the Artists Reception at Iona on Friday, March 20 from 5-7pm. A few of us were able to attend the lunch and we were joined by CHAW Education Director, Amy Moore. It is a beautiful show and I found the artists’ discussions of process, ideas and experiences fascinating. I think the biggest take-away for me was the re-affirmation that age does not mean the diminution of creativity or edginess and regular practice is the secret to a successful artistic life. I think we all felt driven to get back home quickly and start creating some new art.
