2018 MONTHLY
MEMBERS MEETING
MaryAnn Free Smith

February Member Meeting
MaryAnn Free Smith
February 6, 2018
7:00 PM

I paint what I know about; Utah, Nevada, families, children, flowers. My design preferences include an emphasis on the flat painting surface combined with the illusion of space and volume, an affinity for the center of the format and often multiple subjects or the absence of a single focal point. Art gives something outside the self while also only being possible because of what is in the self. This is true for both the maker of the art and the person viewing it.”

MEETING LOCATION
Sons of Utah Pioneers Hall (map)
3301 E. Louise Ave (2920 S.)
Salt Lake City, UT 84109
