I am a 35 year years experienced clay artist who has detoured into oil painting. I meet with an art group in King William, but interest there is light. I want to meet with other artists and break the isolation syndrome. A group draw is good.

What Christy C. is saying about this Meetup Group

I think I received more nourishment from my exchanges and commeroderie from this gathering, than any I have found in a number of years. I networked for help with a clay studio which I have been searching, learned of show opportunities, was inspired by seeing Helene Ruiz's magnificent work, my mind was tweaked and opened up for new directions, and I developed some new goals. All of this broke my isolation from living in an artless area. I need these exchanges in the worst way. I have been a full time artist for many years, in many places, but I don't think any group I have experienced has had this much to offer. I will definitely continue (this was my first time), particularly if meetings are in locations which meet nearer travel wise from my home, like in Mechanicsville. I live out on the Northern Neck, and going to W. Broad at night is a hardship for me. I am so greatful for Helene hosting, it has made all the difference in the world. This is definitely worth doing. Thanks.
