and Minutes of Last Steering Meeting
General Meeting, Quinlan
Center, Craft Room, 10185 Stelling Rd., Cupertino
10th 2018/ 7:00 PM - 9 PM
The freedom, spontaneity
and speed – the “wet and loose”- of watercolor suits my temperament.
My approach is “juicy” incorporating bright colors, broad strokes,
and strong shapes to depict my feelings and impressions of the
natural landscape, flowers and trees, buildings, foreign lands
and exotic places.
Kay's recent, more experimental
work utilizes an original technique of texturing oriental papers
with watercolor pigments. These papers are torn, arranged and
collaged to create interesting abstract images. Metallic foil,
pastel and opaque media are also utilized to enhance the image.
Kay has been painting
for over 45 years and has studied locally with Jane Hofstetter,
Charlotte Britton, Jane Burnham and Marie MacDonnell Roberts.
Always endeavoring to learn and grow, she has painted in workshops
with nationally know artists such as Brommer, Nechis, Szabo,
Betts, Simandle, Webb, Cheng Khee Chee and many others. An active
member of the Allied Artists West, Santa Clara Valley Watercolor
Society, Los Gatos Art Association, Saratoga Contemporary Artists,
The National League of American Pen Women and a signature member
of the Society of Western Artists, Kay shows regularly with
these groups throughout the Bay Area. The City of Saratoga honored
this local artist by presenting one of her paintings to Saratoga’s
Sister City of Muko-shi in Japan. In 2005 the County of Santa
Clara purchased a local vineyard painting to present to their
Sister County of Florence, Italy.

Guidelines - Criteria for Jurying-in new members
FALC has been fortunate this year to welcome
many new members and we can look forward to many others being
interested in joining our club. One of the questions that
we get asked the most from current members and those who are
interested in joining is about our criteria for acceptance.
Our process is clear and simple. Anyone who wants to join
needs to bring three pieces of art to one of our meetings.
The members present at that meeting will vote, and if a 2/3
majority of people approve, that person will be accepted,
pay their dues, and become an exhibiting member.
As a juried club, FALC strives to maintain a
certain standard of proficiency since organizations that invite
us to exhibit assume a certain selectivity. One rule of thumb
commonly used when voting in new members is to ask yourself
this question - Would I like to exhibit with this work? Would
this new work add to the reputation of the club? Just as we
support each other by bringing our best work to shows and
by providing new, fresh work for the painting changes at Quinlan,
we can use our Artists' eyes to make decisions about what
work will be hanging beside us at the next show.
Voting "no" during the jurying-in process does
not bar an artist from joining the club. The artist can still
be a member, just not an "exhibiting member". Non-exhibiting
members can attend demos and meetings that provide an environment
for their art to grow. As they continue to develop their skills,
they are welcome to jury in at a later date.
Guidelines - Copyrighted material
The laws regarding copyrighted
material are complex and not uniform from state to state. In
order to avoid liability and the burden of determining whether
a particular image involves copyright infringement, FALC has
created the following guidelines for member artists. FALC assumes
that it is the respoinsibility of the artist to honestly follow
these guidelines and assumes no liability for work that is submitted
or displayed not following these guidelines. It reserves the
right to disqualify a painting if there is reasonable doubt
about copyright infringement or plagiarism.
- Work entered for a show must be the
artist's original work in concept and execution.
- It cannot be copied from copyrighted
material or photographs belonging to another person or organizaion
except with the copyright holder's explicit written permission.
- It cannot be the reproduction of
a painting done by another person even if the original artist
is acknowledged on the painting.
- It cannot be the reproduction of
a historic painting
