    ANY kind of painting-- acrylic, oil, pastel, watercolor . . .

    and ANY STYLE of art-- from photo-realistic to abstract . . .

    and ANY SUBJECT-- Landscape, figurative, portrait, still life . . . 

    ***Send a photo of your painting to me (at least by mid-day Wednesday) ---- DanielNelsonArt@gmail.com---- and I will print it out and work on it during our critique. ***

    The January Member Meeting topic is Framing to Naming: Exhibiting Art.  All member meetings are held at the Cary Arts Center, from 7-8:30.  

    FALC starts 2022 off with a January Monthly Meeting packed full of tips and tricks to get your artwork accepted into curated exhibitions. We will also present an overview of new shows and exhibitions already planned for the coming 12 months.

    Guests this month will include Denise Dickens who will speak about the willow sculpture  being created by visiting artist Patrick Dougherty, and how FALC members can help with this project.  A framer expert will also join us that evening to talk about the best way to present your work for a show. Additionally, you’ll hear about several new exhibiting opportunities that FALC has planned for the next 12 months.  Lots of new and exciting information!

    This is a free event for all.  Invite friends!  Registration is strongly encouraged.

    Join us at the Cary Arts Center for a still life painting demonstration in oils by well known artist David Shevlino, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.

    This event is free and open to the public, so bring your friends. Registration is required!

    ABOUT DAVID SHEVLINO

    David Shevlino was born in Jersey City, NJ in 1962. A graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the University of Pennsylvania, he also studied at the Art Students' League in New York. Growing up near NYC, Shevlino was exposed to art as a teenager. He began making trips to art museums at age 15 and developed a love of traditional figurative painting. His early work was very traditional and classically inspired. However, after many years of experimenting, Shevlino began exploring a looser paint application which straddles

     the line between representational painting and abstraction. This "in between" area is where the painter feels most comfortable and best able to express his artistic voice. His paintings are characterized by broad brushstrokes, a sensuous application of paint and an obvious feel for tonal harmonies. At the same time, the artist demonstrates a firm sense of control, tightening up the composition through his deft modeling of the human form.

    Shevlino has exhibited work nationally in both solo and group exhibits over the past two decades and currently lives in NC.
