Usually on the first Monday of each month, a CAC Signature Artist Member meets with groups of five Associate Artists to provide insightful and constructive feedback about their work. We hope that this small intimate setting will provide a forum for artists to learn from critiques of each others’ work as well as their own.

Because we want to accommodate as many members as possible, members may only participate in Mentor Mondays once in a six month period. For example, if you take part in the November 2015 session, you would not be eligible to sign up again until May 2016.

Important: Mentor Mondays always fill up very quickly, with a waiting list for each session. If you need to cancel for any reason once you have confirmed your spot, please let us know as soon as possible so we can offer your spot to someone else.

Mentor Friday – David Gallup

David Gallup is an explorer and uses the inspiration from his connection to the environment as the subject of his paintings. He often depicts natural elements that have been obscured by fog, rain, water, glare or darkness to represent the sense of awe and mystery he feels
for the natural world. Gallup was the winner of the American Art Collector Award of Excellence at California Art Club’s 104th Annual Gold Medal for his painting A Deeper Love, a collaboration with CAC Artist Nansi J. Bielanski. This information, and more, can be
found on his website.
