Casey Cheuvront is the demonstrator for our November meeting, and she will be  painting clouds and skyscapes using oils. Casey’s says that her favorite shoes are hiking boots, and since her early years, she has explored the wildernesses of the Southwest, hiking, backpacking, hang gliding and mountain biking, which has all profoundly influenced her art work.  She studied drawing, painting, and ceramics at CSUF California, and today she devotes herself exclusively to creating, teaching, and studying the arts.


      Casey believes that “we are incomplete without a connection to, and appreciation of, the natural world.”  She shares that spiritual relationship through her work in order to motivate a deeper respect for our vanishing wild places, and the creatures that call them home.   Her art pieces now reflect an ongoing fascination with the ever-changing Western and Southwestern wildernesses she has traversed for so many years, whether reflected in a patch of park near town or a remote lake only reachable by a long backpack hike.  Her enthusiasm is translated into a vibrant, modern palette and energetic dynamic brushwork.  You can look for her works showcasing the Yosemite highlands, Sonoran Desert, and the red rocks of Sedona. Visit Casey’s Web site  https://cheuvrontart.com.  As a juried member, Casey is hosting an OPA (Oil Painters of America) Paint Out on November 16th in partnership with the Sedona Arts Center.  All painters are welcome, it is free, and they have a number of prizes (cash, gift cards and art supplies) that Casey will be giving away at the judging and informal reception. There is also information about it on the OPA Web site. If you go to her Facebook page, she will give you an invitation to use at the event. Casey also is a Guest Instructor at Arizona Art Supply.

Plein Aire painter Matt Sterbenz


"I seek to achieve a greater understanding of the landscape that surrounds me. As an avid hiker, I desire to convey our earth from vantage points that many would otherwise overlook. Rather than simply portraying a landscape, I strive to paint the experience of being outdoors. Referencing work that I have created outside allows me to produce paintings in the studio that have a lighter, more atmospheric feel to them. It is with this painting process that I hope to share my outdoors experience with others."
