Arts & Crafts Membership Meeting and Demonstration

We have one more Membership meeting at FOOTHILL CENTER* before our break for two months. On June 6th, Programs Chair Marcy Boyles will present another local artist of many talents.

We begin promptly at 1:45 p.m. where we will conduct our business portion of the Membership meeting. Shortly after, near 2 p.m. Marcy will present Thong Le from San Jose. He is an immigrant of Viet Nam, a husband and father. Thong is a full time artist painting landscape, still life and abstract in oils and sometimes Acrylic and Pastel. He strives to produce deep reaction within the viewer.

As a self-educated artist, he discovered his passion as a boy in Vietnam. Without many opportunities to pursue art, Thong enlisted in the army of South Vietnam as a teenager.

In 1975 he surrendered and spent ten years in a reeducation camp.

More on his life in our next edition in a couple weeks. In the meantime, do mark your calendars for this not to miss special demonstration. To see more of his award winning work, you can find it on Zatista and Saatchi websites. Worth the look.
