Prominent artist reveals secrets

Submitted By Lucinda Bender

The Fremont Art Association is pleased to announce their July guest artist, Claire Schroeven Verbiest. Her goal is to create indelible images that transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. Her desire is to represent the absolute truth of what she sees and to capture the moment in time that best portrays her subject. Verbiest's obsession is to charm the eye with intense color, dramatic light and strong design.

Claire Schroeven Verbiest is a Belgian native who lived in the Congo and in Germany before moving to San Jose, with her husband and their two children. An award-winning artist and a signature member of several art societies, Verbiest is considered one of the finest watercolor and pastel artists in the San Francisco Bay Area.

She is well known for her lively, crisp and truthful depictions of people, landscapes, flowers and objects and for her distinctive use of color. She teaches watercolor and pastel painting classes and conducts painting workshops throughout the US, Canada and Europe. She frequently serves as a juror for local and international art shows. Verbiest's works regularly appear in significant national exhibits as well as in national and international publications.

The artist will demonstrate her preferred method of painting in soft pastel and show you how a drippy, runny watercolor under-painting can be over-painted with pastel to produce an exquisitely realistic image.

You can meet this renowned Bay Area artist on Wednesday, July 8 at 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
