MCAEEF

“Art is not just for artists,”  Margaret Clark once said.  “Success in art gives a child greater self-esteem.  Then he can learn better.”

Margaret Davis Clark came to Redlands in 1947 and for 50 years influenced the present and future of art and culture in the San Bernardino Valley.  A professor at the University of Redlands for 26 years, she taught elementary teacher candidates, infusing them with a passion for using art to teach and reach their students.  In 1964, she cofounded the Redlands Art Association, establishing yet another avenue to promote visual arts with art classes for children.

Named in her honor, the Margaret Clark Art Education Enrichment Fund (MCAEEF) carries on her legacy of devotion to bringing art to the Redlands community.  MCAEEF offers a wide range of arts programs to enrich the Redlands community.   Programs are financed by the Classic Movie Series and community contributions.

Oct Program Terry Chacon

Redlands Art Association is pleased to have, National award winning artist, Terry d. Chacon coming, as a guest artist, on Tuesday evening, October 28 at 7:00 PM.  Terry is a multi-talented artist, with a special enthusiasm for plein air painting and a passion for color and the luminous effects of light on her subjects.  Working from locations that surround her with spectacular landscapes, she expresses her impressions of her surroundings, using oil paints and a palette knife.  She is constantly on the go, painting weekly at fascinating locations throughout the United States.  She has lived in Redlands for about 25 years and has extensively painted the many extraordinary subjects in this town.  She also enjoys painting the beautiful California coast, as well as the many lakes, canyons and desert areas of the Inland Empire.  You can view a large number of her works on her website:  www.terrydchacon.com or visit her blog at: www.weeklypaintingsbyterrydchacon.blogspot.comtc-terryloverscoverforlori300.

 

With the sparkling and luscious colors in her paintings, it is easy to see why she has received numerous awards and why her work is in private collections in over 15 countries.  She has written 3 books on plein air, including her newest book, “Capturing Catalina Island in Plein Air.”  Terry is one of the founding members of the Plein Air Artists of Riverside, and a member of the American Impressionist Society, along with several other professional organizations.  She is represented at several galleries in California.

Her love of art started as a young girl working in ceramics with her creative mother.  Art has always been an integral part of her life.  Besides her plein air painting, Terry is well known for her expressive dog and dog show paintings.  For over 40 years, Terry has been a breeder of prize winning Afghan Hounds, which have inspired her to paint, sculpt and create jewelry items.
