We are excited to have our good friend Kurt Almond from East Aurora visit us at our next meeting on Thursday, March 8 at 7 pm at the Senior Center (101 King St # A, East Aurora, NY 14052).
From the Artist: "I remember seeing a newpaper comic of HENRY (long gone now) while still in the crib. I think that cartoon started it! My first drawing (an eagle) was on cardboard when I was probably four. Over the years I have tried drawing, crafts (with nearly any material), photography, airbrush, photo-silkscreening, sign and banner making, and finally became a teacher of Photography and Crafts. Adobe Photoshop came along, and I was a natural! I currently practice (sneaky) sketching-at-large, portraits, figure drawing, and I make musical instruments from time to time (and play anything I can get my hands around!) I don't seem to draw much better since that eagle in 1954 (maybe just a bit better), but I believe the arts work their magic internally. They heal us without much regard to the quality of the result. I will be demonstrating silk screening, and invite you to please bring a shirt or top, to be printed with fabric ink, to take with you. ( hint: AC Moore has cheap shirts, hoodies, etc, or bring one you already have)." Kurt
