Conway artist Virginia Potter presented an acrylic demonstration to members of the North Central Arkansas Artist League Monday, Jan. 27, at Bayside Art Studio and Gallery in Old Town Fairfield Bay.
Potter shared techniques and advice with the artists while painting a 12x24 inch horizontal canvas of an Arkansas landscape featuring a rocky bluff overlooking distant valleys and tree-covered mountains. About 20 local area artists watched her paint.
Born in Quitman, Potter said she is inspired by the natural beauty of the land and its people, and enjoys painting special areas nearby such as St. Boniface, the Old Mill, and Petit Jean State Park. Co-founder of the Conway League of Artists, Potter works in all media, and is currently the artist-in-residence at Carmen’s Art and Antiques on Oak Street where she currently maintains a studio. Her work can also be seen online through Fine Art America and other sites.
The NCAAL hosts demonstrations and workshops throughout the year for members, and meets to paint together and exhibit at various venues in three area cities.
