BAA September Member Meeting 2022

BAA September Member Meeting

An Improvisational Painting presentation with artistic duo Roxana Astemborski and John Shively 

Date: Tuesday, September 13, 2022

Time: 6pm-8pm

Location: R Gallery & Wine Bar – 2027 Broadway, Boulder, CO

September’s Member Meeting was a blast! Rox and John’s sense of creativity and fun was contagious. 

With an open invitation to join in, several artists at the event picked up a paintbrush and added their own touch of color, line and form to the painting in progress. Rox spoke about how sharing a creation can free up an artist who may be experiencing blockage, or feeling boxed into a specific style or technique. Each unique brushstroke added to the whole – even those that were painted over, around, or skillfully smeared/wiped, giving texture and movement to the piece.

Being at R Gallery contributed to the fun and inspiration. We were surrounded by original art, enjoying our (purchased) drinks and each other. With focus on the creation of art, conversation was easy and inspiration was strong. In the end, I left feeling the buzz of an “Artist’s High” (similar to a “Runner’s High”, but easier on your knees). All in all, a perfect end to a fabulous evening.
