Sept 18 – Ken Karlic   – Big & Bold Watercolor


“SMAL is pleased to announce that Ken Karlic, an award winning Plein Air
painter, is the guest artist for the September 18 member meeting. Ken is
an accomplished watercolorist who describes his style as “sophisticated
chaos”. He strives to express feelings in his work rather the way things
look. In his own words, he paints “nitty gritty things in a nitty-gritty
way”. Ken received his training in Architecture, Painting and Graphic
Design at the University of Illinois and is a founding partner of the
Baltimore area firm, Splice Design Group. To preview Ken’s work, visit

SMAL’s special evening meeting on October 16 features a demonstration by the award winning botanical artist Lee D’Zmura. Lee has an impressive background as a Landscape Architect with a focus on historic preservation. Drawing inspiration from the native wildflowers and insects of the eastern shore, her exquisitely detailed drawings and watercolors are a natural extension of her love of nature and years of technical drawing. Lee received her training as a Botanical Artist from the Brookside Gardens School of Botanical Art. She teaches advanced drawing and watercolor, and has conducted several workshops offered by SMAL.
