The Plainfield Art League would like to invite you to our April meeting and One Night Show on Wednesday, April 5,2017, from 7pm to 8:45pm at the Plainfield Public Library.
This months demonstration will be presented by local artist Bobbie Wheeler on "Marketing your Art". Bobbie will describe the path that lead her to commercial art and how her designs ended up on store shelves. If marketing your art is something that you've considered, she will offer suggestions on how to work towards that goal. She will also be discussing the use of art journaling as a valuable tool to hone your craft and to experiment with colors, styles, texture and form as well as to document the paths of our lives that form us as artists and human beings. Bobbie will be bringing samples of her work as inspiration.
Please come early to ensure you get a seat. Light refreshments will be provided. Plainfield Art League's demonstrations are free and open to the public. The library is located at 15025 S.

Local photographer & artist, Ken Konjevich won the Best of Show ribbon at the Plainfield Art Leagues, March, One Night Show, held at the Plainfield Public Library. Ken won the award for his acrylic on yupo titled "Samurai". Judge Bobbie Wheeler's comments were: "The textures Ken achieved on yupo are outstanding. The lines of this piece are incredibly fluid and dynamic. The use of color to define the composition is nearly flawless. If Ken is in fact a 'beginner', I say keep going!" Congratulations!
