June FEATURED ARTIST
I am pleased to be a member of CAS and appreciate all of the opportunities for displaying my art that CAS provides. I’m honored to be the artist of the month.
My husband and I retired to Austin in 2012 from Appleton, Wisconsin, after spending 4 winters here, living in various parts of the central city. I was worried about opportunities for my painting but have been pleasantly surprised that I have been juried into exhibits and have sold several pieces. I was co chair of workshops for 6 years for Waterloo Watercolor Group and recently passed this on to someone else.
I am a self taught artist and dabbled in wood cuts and oil until I discovered watercolor and watermedia. My introduction to yupo changed the whole direction of my painting to abstract. Like all painting, abstract is a problem solving exercise in obtaining a good composition. I also love to add collage to my work. I think it enriches a painting.
You can see more information about me and images of my work in my website http://www.michelemissner.com

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.
