Our January North Shore Art Guild Meeting: 1/8/18 7:00pm..

MEETING CANCELLED due to  dangerous Driving Conditions.

Our January NSAG meeting is currently scheduled for Monday, January 8 at 7 PM at the  Rose Caracappa Center Center in Mt Sinai.
We will be having a return demo by NSAG member Jan Guarino.  Jan did a demo last June and is back by popular request.  (see her bio below)  If you can make it please join us.
Jan Guarino: Jan is passionate about watercolors. One look at her paintings tells you are looking at the work of a fine artist who is capable of capturing the essence and beauty in diverse subjects – flowers, landscapes, still life vignettes and portraits – people and pets.

Her work can be seen in Creations Magazine on each issue’s Poetry Page and sometimes on the cover. Works have also been chosen by businesses to hang on offices and hallways, by homeowners to hang on the walls of their homes, commissioned by organizations to fuel their fundraising efforts and to adorn their journals and marketing materials ~ simply, her work is diverse and sets them apart from the rest.

Jan’s creative talent has fueled the success of her own graphics design firm, Guarino
Graphics & Fine Arts for over 40 years ~ www.guarino.graphics. Known as the “Logo Goddess”, Jan has won numerous local, regional and national awards for her creative development of corporate identity programs and communication materials for sales and marketing. In addition, she has created her own line of holiday cards that are earth friendly, blending original art with famous quotes.

She has traveled to Europe on several painting trips and now organizes her own painting excursions. Currently she is taking a group to Santa Fe, NM in May and Croatia in October.

Follow her on Facebook where she has a weekly contest to name her latest painting – the winning title receives a free print! She sells prints on ETSY and posts steps on Pinterest.

Jan is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology with an Associates in Applied Science degree, graduating with high honors.
