Artists Host Reception, Demonstration at Mission Trails Park

San Diego County CA– As part of its commitment to celebrating and displaying local artwork, the Mission Trails Regional Park Foundation features seven artists with the art exhibition “Seven: Our World Through Colored Pencil.” The colored pencil artists will host a reception and demonstration at the Mission Trails Visitor’s Center on June 14 from 1 to 4 p.m. These professional artists will be available to answer questions and explain their work in greater detail to the public.

A live demonstration by three of the artists will commence at 1:30 p.m. Artists Bobbie Bradford, Carolyn Kenny and Katherine Miller will each demonstrate unique aspects and techniques of colored pencil art that display the medium’s capacity for stunning, textured and nuanced visuals that most people may not necessarily associate with colored pencil art. Bradford’s demonstration will show how easily texture can be created with a combination of colored pencils and textured boards on different types of paper surfaces. Miller’s will demonstrate how colored pencils can be used on a both sides of a polyester surface to add depth and complexity to her work. Kenny will be working on the first in a series of “Birds of Paradise” in a larger former, using a variety of colored pencil types.

“Displaying work at the Visitor’s Center is a great way for local artists to showcase their latest efforts,” said Vicky DeLong, Art Program Coordinator for the Mission Trails Regional Park Foundation. “We attract an outstanding group of artists who display beautiful works that you won’t find in more traditional galleries. Plus, artists have the ability to use the Center as a venue to sell their work.”

The Mission Trails Regional Park Foundation offers opportunities for visual artists to display their work. Displays include two-dimensional work by small or large groups and solo artists. The artwork displays are rotated every four weeks throughout the year.
