The Mother Lode Art Association will meet Monday, September 16th, at the Tuolumne County Library Conference room. The Board will meet at noon, followed by the General Meeting at 1 PM. Discussion and review details of MLAA 66th Juried Fine Art Show at the Sonora Opera Hall from Friday to Sunday September 27 to 29, 2019.

MLAA welcomes guest artist Susan Lea Hackett. Susan is the heart and soul of the MLAA’s Plein Air Group, and leads her “Merry Band of Painters” to paintable destinations high and low in Tuolumne County. Her current passion is plein air watercolor and pastel painting. Susan’s demo for September will share her process for developing work at home that she’s begun in the field. This includes planning values using water-soluble pencils to make notes and sketches, a simple understanding of perspective, and editing the scene for an organized composition. Susan will use the tv screen in our meeting room to show how she enhances her photos to glean information on color and perspective. She uses watercolor as her primary medium, and finishes using a little gouache or pastel. Susan will talk about the colors she uses and those she avoids, so that she can lift and lighten colors as needed.
