OUR PURPOSE

  

 Sherman Art League (SAL) is the longest established art organization in Grayson County, dating to 1961.  We desire to encourage artists of all ages, to promote excellence and diversity in the arts, and to increase the awareness and appreciation of art in the community.  To promote the visual arts through lectures, shows and workshops in an informal collegial atmosphere.  After fifty-eight years, we continue to support this goal.

However, he also paints in acrylics, watercolors, and inks.  He became interested in paper making a few years ago after taking a workshop and that has led him into bookmaking.  He teaches pottery at the Goddard center in Ardmore and at his studio in Kingston .   Jim has given several workshops in printmaking and paper making and will be giving a paper making workshop at the Goddard center in June.  This month's demo will include ways to use handmade paper and he will have some for everyone to tryout their favorite art.  Bring what you like to work in and some brushes.

BEV BOREN - Another excellent Program/Demo

Bev was born and raised in Texas and now resides in Trophy Club, Texas with her husband Ben.  She is a signature member of the Outdoor Painters Society and the Southwestern Watercolor Society.  She is also a member of the Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society, and American Watercolor Society.

Her work is primarily the result of her need to paint.  Inspiration can come at any time and in any place.  She is not confined to one subject area.  She loves  to paint a variety of subject matter as well as working in various mediums.  Bev's paintings are created with things that capture her eye whether it's a still life, landscape, or capturing a person's personality.  Painting is her way of connecting with the world and the people around her and sharing those experiences along the way.

In her words "Trying to describe or explain my efforts at painting or drawing seems like a futile effort.  After all, I want my work to express itself without the necessity of words.  My best hope is that my work will stand simply on it's own, and find a connection with viewers where words fail

LYNDA DUNHAM-WATKINS - She is very talented and the program will be a pleasant surprise!

  

Lynda’s interest of sculpting historical figures and animals grew quickly to include acrylic and oil painting of people and animals.  

With no formal art training Lynda began as a self- taught artist concentrating on sculpting and then growing into working with abstract ideas and portraits, considering each a demanding, rewarding, and exciting challenge, using oils, acrylic paint, charcoal, graphite, pastels, watercolors, and many mark making items to explore the possibilities of ideas and visions on canvas, paper, plaster, and various other substrates. Mixed media is a means of expression that she never grows tired of pursuing.

Lynda’s attention to detail when sculpting carries over to paintings and to mixed media. Blending reality with abstract leads the observer into the piece whether via the details or by layers and texture that provide visual stimulation.


To live is to learn…..with no known limits ahead, Lynda eagerly looks forward to tomorrow.
