Designing, Illustrating and Painting

Artist Dennis Lewis travels from Clovis to Newhall because after a long career as a designer and illustrator, Lewis now devotes his time to painting and education. With a career in entertainment that started in 1971, Lewis has created art for movie posters, album covers, software games and educational products. His long list of clients include Walt Disney, Fox, CBS, A&M Records and Microsoft.

An accomplished oil painter, Lewis has exhibited his work throughout the country, including award-winning paintings on display at the Pentagon in Washington D.C. He taught web/graphics with the Institute of Technology in Clovis, and co-founded Riverpark Art Studios in River Park, CA. Dennis Lewis will talk about art, his approach to teaching, and will bring some selected works for us to enjoy.

Puppeteer & Actor,
The Jim Henson Company

No Strings Attached

It’s not easy being green, and also not easy to make green, hairy, big, toothy, funny and scary puppets move. Allan Trautman has been making puppets move while moving us to laughter – and sometimes tears – as one of the many talented puppeteers at The Jim Henson Company.

This Emmy-nominated actor, director, and master puppeteer will show us how these characters are brought to life at our next meeting. It is not a puppet show for kids, but a presentation for the kid in all of us.

Thursday – May 26, 2016 – 6:30pm, at the Old Town Newhall Library
