November 14 Meeting Highlights

Vienna Arts Society November meeting with a demo by Ronni Jolles showing her beautiful paintings of layered cut and ripped papers.

Our Art Center was packed with members for the November 14 Meeting. Ruth Ensley covered the highlights of the past month, including our participation in festive Halloween Parade. She thanked the Take a Seat Vienna team for its spectacular finale on November 2, a wildly successful Auction of our 41 benches.

Lu Cousins described an exciting opportunity: the owner of the former REfind Shop has invited us to stage a POP UP Holiday Art Market there while she seeks a permanent tenant. The location is 101 Church Street NW, Vienna VA 22180, and our doors open on Thursday, November 21.

Program Chair Alice Nodine introduced visiting artist Ronni Jolles, who described her worldwide search for the unique papers she’s collected in order to “paint with paper”. Ronni demonstrated her methods of tearing, cutting and gluing on layers to create her works of dimensional art.
