New Member, DANO, and his 'CAPTIVATING' Exhibit at Crepe Bistro Thru April 28th
City Lights Art Gallery is proud to announce a two week exhibit by photographer artist, DANO at the Crepe Bistro, 420 S Rampart #150 in Tivoli Village, Summerlin.
A self taught photographer, DANO's choice of subject matter is diverse from landscapes to portraits and more. He loves employing photo effects to take his subject to a new level, a new style. However, he states, "more important than 'style' is being aware of the literal nature of the image I see and striving to go beyond that in an aesthetic sense to create a captivating image."
DANO is inspired and grateful to Jillian V and Sarah Jane Woodall for their support in honing his skills.
DANO is a new member of City Lights Artists' Co-op, a 501 (c)3 organization focused on providing art scholarships to local students.

A respected artist and sign painter, with over 30 years in the motion picture industry, Tucker enjoys working in many mediums including, oil, acrylic, watercolor and drawing.

NEW OIL PAINTING CLASSES
Bob O'Neill, Instructor
Oil painting classes will be available Mondays from 10 am - 1 pm beginning April 13th.
COME PAINT WITH BOB!
Bob has been painting with oils for over 40 years. He loves to paint semi-realism ... 'semi' because he doesn't paint every brick or leaf, leaving the viewer to fil in the blanks.
Using an unusual method of applying paint to a canvas with a semi-dry brush in black (never using black out of a tube), he advises that it's much like applying charcoal excep tyou have the benefit of applying white to have complete control of your values. Color will then be applied in thin layers for a brilliant finish.
Enjoy exploring this new technique and much more!
Please reserve a space with Bob by calling City Lights at 702.260.0300 or calling Bob at 702.496.2955.
The fee for the 3-hour class is $20.00
