After a long hiatus because of the pandemic, the Leisure World Art League is honored to host a demonstration by Elizabeth J. Butterfield, an award-winning artist, floral and garden designer, and educator/instructor. A big turnout is expected for this entertaining and educational event on Tuesday, July 20, so attendees should plan to arrive early, especially those who have artwork entries to submit. The meeting will start at 7 p.m. in Clubhouse 4. Face masks are not required, but people can wear them if they feel comfortable doing so.
The mixed media art of Elizabeth Jewell Butterfield reflects a host of mediums and materials, from found objects and discarded things to handmade papers and personal photographs. In Monterey, she was inspired by an art teacher to take up the practice of layering different textures, turning nothing into a beautiful something. Butterfield finds pleasure in photographing the things she values and hopes they will be preserved by duplicating them into her torn paper art that is displayed.
Art League members are encouraged to submit their own artwork to the meeting by 6:30 p.m. The subject for the popular vote is “Mixed Media.”
