Into the Woods: The Magic of Whimsy with Jennifer Walls

Ready for an adventure? Artist Jen Walls demonstrates the intuitive (and often surprising) process of whimsical and naive art. From moody background to the final collaged costume of the main character, this demo will showcase many of the the magic tricks in a mixed-media toolbox in a cooking show format that will leave you hungry to create your own mixed-media masterpiece. More details on our website.

 Due to hurricane Irma we have rescheduled the reception for the exhibition to:
Friday, October 27th, 7 to 10 PM
Location: The Coral Springs Museum

 It will be coined a 'Masquerade at the Museum' in celebration of the FWS 46th Annual Exhibit (costumes not required). Enjoy a complimentary signature drink, open bar with wine and beer offerings, butler passed hors-d'oeuvres, live music, raffle opportunities and more! While it won't be a convention, it will be a fun evening to catch up with other artists and see the exhibit.
Please buy tickets on the FWS website for the rescheduled reception.
