Michael Steirnagle May 20, 2017

The Fallbrook Art Association is pleased to have Michael Steirnagle as their guest artist for the May 20th meeting.

Michael Steirnagle received his art training at the Art Center College of Design.  
He has worked as a graphic designer, freelance illustrator, College Art Professor for 25 years and fine artist since leaving the commercial art world in 1990. He has taught numberous workshops and continues exhibiting in galleries from California, Arizona, Oregon, Virginia and North Carolina.  He continues to serve on th faculty of Polamar College in San Marcos.

He has done numerous commissions for Fortune 500 companies and his painting grace the walls of collectors throughout the United States and Canada. Numerous articles have been written about his work in “American Art Collector”, “Southwest Art Magazine”, “Sketchbook Confidential II”, and he has illustrated several children’s books,  

Moving between left and right brain (form and content), Michae finds pleasure in both worlds. Usuallly utilizing the figure as his subject, Michael seeks to find a comfortable  balance between these two opposing forces, unconsciously letting life events and emotions effect the end result.He finds the painting experience to be a total emersion in the sea of lush paint and color which, hopefully, evolve into a pleasurable and meaningful experience for the viewer.

The meeting will be at the Fallbrook Womans Club, 238 W. Mission Rd, Fallbrook. Starting at 9:30 with a critique session, members will want to come early to sign in and get a name tag. Each member can bring one work for the guest artist to critique.  Following a short business meeting Michael will do a demonstration in oil. After lunch there will be a workshop, those interested should contact Carol Reardon at.  Workshops fill up quickly so be sure and get your check for the artist, $35 members and $45 non members to Carol before the meeting
