Kent Island Federation of Arts Member Meeting

On Thursday, August 25, 2011 Kent Island Federation of Arts will host a members meeting at 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. Christine O’Neill, artist and sailor, will be the guest speaker.

Christine is an artist whose current home is a sailboat on the Chesapeake. She has traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean, South America and the U.S. Many of her paintings are inspired by the places she has visited.

In the early 90’s she was awarded a painting traveling sabbatical for 14 months and painted her way through a 2nd masters degree. Christine currently teaches private and small group painting lessons. The effects of light, shadow and action are the driving forces in her paintings – whether still life, or from foreign travel and life around the Chesapeake Bay. She now spends her winters sailing and painting in the Bahamas.

Christine is a Signature member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society, a member of the Annapolis Watercolor Club, the National Watercolor Society and Pen Women of America.

Christine is a vivacious and enthusiastic speaker who is certain to inspire and entertain. The meeting is free and open to KIFA members and guests. The KIFA Gallery is located at 405 Main St. in Stevensville. For more information, please call 410-643-7424 or email
