Kerrville Art Club to host Plano watercolorist


Members of the Kerrville Art Club (KAC) begin their new season with a meeting from 1 pm to 3 pm, Tuesday, Sept. 20, in the Kerr Arts & Cultural Center (KACC) 228 Earl Garrett Street, in Kerrville. KAC meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month.
Visiting artist Maureen Uphues will demonstrate her watercolor techniques. In addition, members will display selected art works for the Artist of the Month competition. A resident of Plano, Uphues is a member of the Richardson Civic Art Society and Southwest Watercolor Society. Before retiring, she taught art for 20 years. Additionally, for the last three years, she has participated in the “Artists Without Limits,” a 10-day painting-exhibit held in January at the Hill Country Arts Foundation in Ingram.
Painting with a delicate and dream-like quality, Uphues handles watercolor on canvas that has an element of abstraction without totally losing the representational.
“I love types of art, but watercolor best of all,” she said. “Recently, I have discovered textured canvas as a new, exciting, freedom of expression over traditional papers.”
“We cordially invite any and all interested persons, to join us for a sojourn into the art world,” said a KAC spokesman.
