Harry Sargent, Feature Artist for April
Like many art groups, PSST is founded on and completely run by members who volunteer their time -- from a few minutes setting up chairs for meetings each month to many hours organizing an exhibition.
As Exhibitions Chair for Brazosport Art League, host for PSST upcoming exhibition Art of the Pastel, Harry will be hanging the show. So it was natural to ask him about the benefit of volunteering. We loved his answer, that it "broadens my life experiences with the people I associate with and the sense of accomplishment and contribution to my community."
Harry also recommends the website VIRTUAL PAINTOUT in respect to landscapes. "International sites are selected monthly using GOOGLE EARTH as the source. Watercolor and pastels are used very effectively and there are no copyright issues since the artist essentially takes a screen-save of a personally selected street view location." Another resource to try out!
