March 2018 ALOG Meeting
Our members gather monthly for some welcome camaraderie, a short business meeting, and a presentation on some aspect of the visual arts. This might be a “tour” of the artist’s work, a demonstration of an interesting technique, or even business topics such as how to market your art.
Visitors are always welcome.
ONLINE FOR NOW
Because of COVID-19, we have canceled our in-person member meetings through 2020, so member meetings will be held online instead -- we still get together, hear our regularly scheduled speaker and share our art.
WE MEET EVERY MONTH
Following our business meeting (board announcements, etc.) and guest speaker (see below), we use the remaining time for community time and artist sharing. Have a photo of your work that you would like to share and be prepared to say something about it. You will be able to show something from your computer screen or share a photo. Members may invite a guest.
HOW IT WORKS
You will receive a Zoom link prior to the meeting. If it’s your first Zoom, sign in early to be sure your computer or other device is ready. During the meeting you will be able to see the presentation and hear the speaker; for the last part of the meeting, members will be able to have the floor to ask the speaker questions, as well as show their work, announce news, and just chat.
I am so excited that we are making this happen! Please come and join us!
Our Next Meeting

About Our Speaker
Paul comes from a family of artists and has drawn and painted his whole life. After receiving an Associate of Arts degree from a local college in 1984, he accepted a job at the Smithsonian Institution doing taxidermy and model making and retired in 2010. As a result of so much three-dimensional work in his museum job, his own personal artwork gradually began to transform from painting and drawing into sculpture. Being an avid birder, waterfowl hunter, and taxidermist gives him constant anatomy and behavioral learning experiences that inspire his sculpture.
Paul’s work has been exhibited in such prestigious art shows such as the National Sculpture Society, the Society of Animal Artists, and Birds in Art. His wildlife sculpture is at the National Zoo, National Museum of Natural History, the Denver Zoo, Woodson Art Museum, Hiram Blauvelt Museum and various public buildings and parks and private collections throughout the US. He is on the Boards of Directors for the Society of Animal Artists and the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art.
