“Today, an artist’s paint box must include the digital camera and the computer right along with paint tubes and bristle brushes,” artist Steve Memering said.

What’s in your paint box?

Placerville Arts Association is very pleased to have Memering sharing his many years of experience in acrylic painting, on Sunday, Nov. 18 at the El Dorado Senior Center, 935 Spring St. in Placerville.

It will be a meeting full of fresh insights and ideas, not only about painting in the medium of acrylics, but just how digital cameras and computers can enhance an artist’s repertoire for creating art. The public is invited: young or old, artist or art enthusiast.

Creating art has been a refuge and great source of joy for Memering his entire life and he relishes sharing his insights and enthusiasm for art with others.

Retired after 30 years of teaching art at the middle school level, Memering devotes fulltime to painting and on teaching adult workshops.

For years, Memering developed a reputation as an accomplished watercolorist. Gradually, he discovered that each painting became a kind of journey. Opaque mediums, such as oil and acrylic gave him the freedom he needed to re-evaluate and explore his ideas along the way.

Uncomfortable with photographic realism, Memering prefers to “interpret” rather than “report” a subject.

“I paint what I remember, not what I see,” he explained. “I try to edit out everything not essential and get to what is really there.”

Over time, Memering’s work has acquired its own unique look. The dramatic play of light and dark has become a persistent theme in his work along with bold, emotion-based color schemes.

Memering’s work can be found in collections all over the world, and his work is always on sale and on display at the Smith Gallery in downtown Sacramento.

To learn more about him and his work visit stevememering.com or smithgallery.com.

The demonstration will follow a brief PAA business meeting at 1:30 p.m. Refreshments are served about 2 p.m. and the demonstration follows, concluding about 3:30 p.m. The event is free.
