St. George Art Festival Brings New Collectors

BobbieLee Kosuge and her new painting

Thanks to the hundreds of people who showed up at the St. George Art Festival recently. The weather was grand and it was a great day for sales as well. The St. George Art Museum purchased some of my paintings and new collectors added a few more to their collections as well.

All Media Workshop held at New Electric Theater Arts Center

Great group of artists for Roland Lee's all-media workshop
About 15 artists signed up for my latest workshop sponsored by the Southern Utah Art Guild. It was held in St. George City's new Electric Theater Arts Complex. the facilities were wonderful and the artists were certainly equal to the task, as I presented my favorite tips and techniques from years of painting. Most were watercolorists, while about five painted in oils or acrylics. Thanks to Paul Jensen and the others on the workshop committee for their hard work in putting it all together. Participants included: Barbara Allen, Annie Barber, Maureen Booth, Stephen Cherry, Judy Ewing, Ilona Fellows, Sandy Fullerton, Sage Gallager, Jan Hansen, Paul Jensen, Georgia Johnson, Lynnette, Loughton, Mary Manning, Karen March, Carolyn Williams, Barbara Stevens.
A nice workshop facility at the Electric Theater Arts Center
