What a treat we have for you on May 23, 2023!

Mark Mehaffey, AWS, NWS (Dolphin Fellow), TWS, and many other significant professional honors, will join our general meeting as demo artist. Mark works primarily in watercolor and acrylic, the “other” media. His work ranges from beautiful watercolor paintings to dynamic abstract work of a personal nature, often executed on Yupo substrate. He is always a sought after instructor, juror, and demonstration artist.

“During the time I have been painting (more than 50 years) my interest in the act of painting has never waned,” says Mark in his artist’s statement. “However, the content of my work and my technical abilities are constantly evolving. This state of change is something that all artists embrace. It is through change that growth occurs. To be timid, safe, complacent or overly satisfied does not push the boundaries of creativity.”

Mark is also the author of “Creative Watercolor Workshop” (2005), later rereleased as “Creative Watercolor and Acrylic Workshop” (2013). He also created twelve popular instructional videos and has appeared in many publications. He was featured in “Masters of Watercolor” written by Konstantin Sterkhov and “Inspirations & Technical Breakthroughs: Secrets from the Contemporary International Watercolor Masters Volume 1” written by Zhou Tianya & Ruan Hoe.

Mehaffey’s paintings are included in corporate, public and private collections including Blue Cross Blue Shield and The Arches Paper Co., USA. In 2018 he was invited to participate in the International Watercolor Masters Exhibition in Weston Park England. His work is included in permanent collections of transparent watercolors at major institutions such as the Neville Public Museum (WI), the Muskegon Museum of Art, Muskegon (MI), and the National Watercolor Museum of Mexico City, among others.

Join us for what will be a memorable evening from one of America’s most respected artists.
