Fort Worth, TX. 817- 894-5014
The guest for the next VAST Meeting, on Thursday, March 2cnd is Mike Moffatt and Art-Hunger. Mike works at Asel Art Supply in Fort Worth and is a member of Art-Hunger. Mike and additional members of the group will appear for a discussion about their goals and share the work of their passion.
Art-Hunger is a Fort Worth/Dallas Texas art organization formed for both emerging and established artists who have the desire to show their artwork, sell, socialize, learn, share, network, practice their skills and gain more exposure. In the summer of 2012, they hosted more than a dozen art shows and fund raisers.
They welcome all painters, sculptors, jewelers, book makers, ceramicists, glass blowers, welders, shirt and textile artists, graphic artists, illustrators and more to join in! Their goal is to continue creating new events and more ways to help bring the local art community together.
Mike’s Artist Statement:
Always looking to the future in whatever I do, while keeping the mind’s eye on the past. Having respect for the long history of the arts is so important to me. Using skills I learned in school and out of the classroom, I have grown into a well- rounded painter and designer. Instead of the normal POP Art that is so overly done in this decade, I pick out scenes that touch the emotions in the true fans. This puts me closer to my audience and that loyalty is hard to come by in the art world.

Michael Holter Workshop
Express Yourself: Landscape/Cityscape
VAST is sponsoring a workshop by Michael Holter that will focus on the use of watercolor to paint exciting impressionistic paintings of landscapes and cityscapes. You will paint from photographs and will explore the use of light and shadow to create interesting compositions and achieve dynamic results. Participants will work on basic perspective and how to appropriately incorporate figures into the painting.
