Art for Life

Unlike many artists, Sandy Fisher did not spend her early years studying art. However, she was always creating, working on embroidery, macramé, stained glass, and finally photography and painting. But it was not until surviving her second cancer diagnosis that Sandy became a full time artist.

Motivated by nature, faith, and a deep love for life, this past president of the Santa Clarita Artists Association will share what moves her to create. Join us for a touching conversation with one of Santa Clarita’s inspiring artists.

Thursday – August 25, 2016 – 6:30 pm, at the Old Town Newhall Library

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.
