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.

Welcome!

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.

7pm Meeting Starts

Our meeting for November starts at 7:00 P.M.  Come early to meet and mingle with members and have a cup of coffee and cookies. 

We will have a short business meeting then meet the organizations that receive donations from CAS.  In addition, officers for 2015 will be installed. 

Instead of a regular meeting in December, we'll be having a Christmas dinner at Cypress Grill.  More to follow.

 

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.
