Debra De Santis
Debra is active in the El Paso Art community, participating in numerous art events and competitions. Art is a large part of her life and she has come to develop a deep passion for the visual arts in all forms. Being an artist has been a most enriching endeavor in Debra's life and she wholly believes that art can add beauty and meaning to any life. Debra is a native El Pasoan and she would love the chance to play a role in promoting and expanding the art culture in our great city.
Nabil was born and raised in El Paso and has an extensive and impressive art background. She received her MFA from Rhode Island School of Design and her BFA from UTEP. Her artistic passion shows itself in the many forms of printmaking as well as other visual media. As an artist who understands the many aspects of the border region, Nabil has a voice of substance that would contribute greatly to the El Paso Art Association and the art community.
Jean's experience with art associations in El Paso is extensive. She has been a member of the EPAA, Rio Bravo Watercolorists, El Paso Pastel Society and Plein Air Painters for several years. She enjoys participating in meetings that further the visual arts in El Paso. Jean will contribute her positive outlook and future oriented attitude to El Paso Art Association.
Full resumes will be available at the Annual Meeting.
We are pleased and excited to host an ART Talk by Ann James Massey.
Ann is an international award winning artist and new tenant of the Art Junction studios for her US base. Ann James Massey will quickly illustrate her use of old master's techniques including the drawing process, composition, paint application and the materials (mahogany boards, black oil, gun mastic crystal solution, the medium created from the prior two, and mixing the oil with powdered pigments to tube her own paints). The original painting of the Blessing of the Animals has already won 4 national awards including 2 in New York since its completion at the end of 2017. Though it is currently in New York awaiting another exhibition, there will be some preparatory sketches, a miniature oil in progress, and some miniature drawings on display as well as perhaps another original painting borrowed back from a local collector.
Hope to see you there!
