On Sunday afternoon, July 29, the Sierra Pastel Society’s summer meeting will feature a portrait demonstration by Galt artist, Gerald Boyd.

The program, including a short business meeting, will begin at 1:30 at the El Dorado Hills Senior Center, 990 Lassen Lane, El Dorado Hills.

The public is welcome to attend.

Boyd, an award-winning artist and popular demonstrator, has been designated a “Distinguished Pastelist” by the Pastel Society of the West Coast, and is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America and the Society of Western Artists.

“Although I’ve explored a wide variety of subject matter, my paintings seem to inevitably come back to the human experience. I enjoy doing portraits, figures, and character studies and I find that even a landscape seems more alive if there are people within the composition,” Boyd said.

His work has been recognized with numerous awards including a Best of Show in the Pastel Society of the West Coast’s Pastels USA National Exhibition in 2006 for “The Tales He Could Tell.”
