    Demonstrator:   Matthew Bird

    Matthew Bird is an American painter.  Born in Maryland, he graduated with honors from the Pratt Institute of Art in Brooklyn, New York, in 2000.  He is a signature Member of numerous organizations, including the National Watercolor Society where he served as vice president, and his award-winning watercolor paintings have been exhibited in juried shows across the United States, as well as in  Canada, China, Greece, Hong Kong, and Italy.  His work is in permanent museum collections as well as numerous private collections.  

     For 15 years he worked as a designer and art director in advertising agencies, specializing in non-profit fundraising.   As an illustrator, he has five children's books published and his paintings have been used as greeting cards for the Smithsonian Institution, National Geographic, the National Audubon Society, and the National Wildlife Federation, among others.  

     Matthew focuses on developing his craft to capture the beauty of what surrounds him with precision and clarity; and strives to convey that to all people through the universal language of representational art.  It is his desire that when others see his work they may be inspired by the perceptible signs of the real Creator. 

     6:30 - 7 pm:  Members' Painting Salon

     Remember to send in your recent artwork to Andrea Naft. Note TITLE and SIZE. Back story about painting to share is appreciated.
