Jan Weaver’s interest in art eventually led her to get B.F.A. in studio art from the University of Texas. She pursued her love of ceramics until 2000 when she turned her focus to drawing and painting. Jan never considered herself a painter, but making art is a learned skill and she was willing to be taught. That year she saw an artist-friend’s work in pastel and she was mesmerized by the intensity of the color. Jan knew right then that this was what she wanted to learn.
Jan’s painting Watching (in this post) was the best of show at the Austin Pastel Society 2011 Annual Juried Member Exhibition held this Spring.
The Austin Pastel Society announced the winners of APS North Hills 4th Annual Exhibition. The best of show painting was Cassandra by Sonja Kever. In 2003 Sonja attended a pastel exhibit at the North Hills Gallery in Austin, Texas and was awed by the luminous medium. Having had no previous experience with pastels, she immediately began taking lessons, attending workshops and pastel exhibits. And now, couple of years after, she is the winner!!! Congratulations to Sonja and other winners!
