Swetlin wins Honorable Mention in Pacific Art League show

Congratulations to Christopher Swetlin, whose beautiful Girl with a Bubble received an Honorable Mention in the Pacific Art League's current juried exhibit, "Figures and Faces"!  The show runs August 2-29 in Palo Alto.

We got to see this luminous piece in real life at our June chapter meeting when he presented his rather unusual techniques, using sandpaper, Xacto knives and electric erasers to abuse the paper as he develops his drawings.  In case you didn't pick up on it, his piece and title alludes to Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring."
