Artist of the Month

Norma Zoda

Norma uses a very different medium, masking tape, to create pieces of art that cannot be found anywhere else.

Norma was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, and though not formally trained as an artist, art ran in her family as both her uncle and grandmother were artists. She began sculpting in masking tape in 1994 while living in New Hampshire.

Her first piece was a small rocking horse only about 3 inches high and she experimented from there. Within three years, she was showing pieces in galleries in San Antonio, shipping pieces around the world.

The Creative Arts Society (CAS) is composed of artists from many different mediums and meets on the first Wednesday of each month except January, July, and August. The meeting is held on the 10th floor of the ACC Pinnacle Campus, 7748 West 290, Austin, Texas, in the Faculty Lounge.

Come at 6 PM for socializing, networking, and an optional critique of works in progress. At 7 PM we have a short business meeting, followed by a monthly program on art techniques, the business of art, demos, or guest speakers.

Membership opportunities include networking, community outreach, participation in shows and exhibits, monthly presentations, and participation in the gallery of CAS artists images. Membership is open to everyone and we welcome art lovers and enthusiasts, hobbyists and professionals engaged in any of the visual, literary and performing arts.

Monthly Meeting

6-7pm Networking and Social Hour

7pm Meeting Starts

For October, the program after the usual business meeting will be a " show and tell" with members displaying their work (completed or in progress) and giving a little explanation of the work. The audience will provide their review. This is NOT a critic session but a friendly review of the work of art!

Come to the meeting, visit with your fellow artists and see some amazing art! Coffee and cookies will be a special treat!


CAS Portfolio:

The CAS Portfolio is now complete. Come to the Dougherty Art Center on November 12th to view the portfolio. It is a very nice looking representation of the quality of art as presented by the CAS members.
