May FEATURED ARTIST
Shruti Mehta is an emerging artist living in Austin, TX. Shruti emigrated from India in 1991, attained her Master’s degree at St. Edward’s University.Shruti began her art journey at the age of 12, with Guru Mrs. Avantika Jetley and went on to develop her own style to combine realism with abstract. Shruti has passion for painting ethnic women in the beauty of humble moments in life, her characters enjoy small pleasures of life such as playing in the rain, admiring seasons of this earth, being outdoors and so on. Shruti also has a frenzy to wander around new lands and bring to her canvas the distinctive characteristics of these regions she visits. Shruti has been experimenting with various mediums – oil, acrylic, and watercolor. Shruti is a RYT 200, started teaching yoga this year. She has experimented “Yoga with painting” which was received very well by her yoga students and wish to continue this trend.
Currently Shruti’s work is at Cypress Grill, Bass Concert Hall, Orange Coworking space and coming soon to Doubletree, Hilton.
Shruti is fascinated with languages and currently she is learning Sanskrit which will soon reflect in her upcoming paintings.

As president, one of my goals was to create a space on our site that would speak to potential venues. I am so pleased to announce a new page that highlights the wonderful opportunities for original art that CAS has to offer to businesses.If you know a venue that needs art, it’s easier than ever to direct them to this information. Please visit and share: http://www.creativeartssociety.org/exhibit-services.html to see the result!
Under the category of changing times… Our May meeting will be our last for a while at the Pinnacle campus in Oak Hill. ACC informed us that the facility will be closing indefinitely for renovations. So we can’t say if and when we will be able to return…. BUT never fear, we will continue to hold our general meetings! A new location will be announce well in advance of the September meeting. So please stay tuned and make sure our fellow artists know about this important change of venue.
We have juried shows coming up in the fall. CAS artists will be exhibiting at Link & Pin ArtSpace and NorthHills Gallery later this year and are working on more! So get busy creating, we have walls to fill.
