2018 MONTHLY
MEMBERS MEETING

McGuire Miami

UWS Monthly Member Meeting
Tuesday, May 8, 2018 at 7:00pm
Note: This month our meeting is the 2nd Tuesday rather than the 1st Tuesday as usual
Artist: Jeannie McGuire, AWS

Jeannie McGuire, AWS, a Pittsburgh-based artist, strives to invoke individual interpretation through her artwork, which impressively utilizes a free application of paint and stylistic forms of expression.  McGuire uses her own photography, acquired snapshots and life drawings to spark her creativity.  Her work has been described as a brilliant combination of emotion, movement, natural design, and sheer artistry that has been expanded upon from her days as a commercial graphic designer and photographer.  Impressionistic in nature with an identifiable subject, her strong, figurative approaches are unique in more ways than one.  

"People love telling me how they feel about my art and I am grateful for the connection we have."
