LACONIA — The Lakes Region Art Association will hold its up-coming meeting on Monday, October 28 at the Woodside Building Conference Center at the Taylor Community, 435 Union Avenue, Laconia. The meeting begins at 7 p.m.
Belmont artist Shela Cunningham will be the guest speaker. Specializing in pastels, Shela will provide the group with an overview of the medium including background, techniques, tools and hints.
Cunningham's art training exposed her to various mediums, but she found that pastels really piqued her interest. The rich colors of the pigments and the control one has of the medium contributes to the appeal. Landscapes and still lifes are familiar themes for her pastel pieces. She also works in collage.
Association meetings are open to the general public.
