Art Talk & Demo with EPAA Member Steve Hastings

Congratulations to Steve Hastings for winning "Best of Show" for The Water Hole at ARTS International 2019 Juried Art Exhibit. We are thrilled to have Steve offer his insights into how his artistic mindset has evolved and grown over the years. His painting technique is unique and his large scale pieces are as delicate as a flower even with prickly cactus thorns. Steve will be raffling a signed print to a lucky attendee!!

This event is free and the public is invited to attend! Please call the EPAA with questions about the demo or the upcoming election. Karla Zanelli - (915) 534.7377
