Karen Strauss Sumi-e demo August 19, 2017

Karen Strauss is a photographer, writer, editor, and artist, specializing in Japanese sumi-e brush painting and bird phtography.  She has loved art, animals and outdoor pursuits since childhood.  Karen volunteers with the San Diego Audubon Society, Friends of Taka Sumi-e Japanese Painting Society, and the San Diego Undersea Film Exhibition.  She is a member of the Women Divers Hall of Fame.

She and her husband travel the world diving, birding and shooting pictures.  She is deeply honored to have been chosen by Sensei Takashi Ijchi as a 10-year student, or Shi Han.  Karen’s 10-year Japanese painter name, Ryuka, means Tall Deer, reflecting not only her height, but also her love of animals.  “RYU” is part of her sensei’s name, and “Ka” is part of her Western name.

Please join us for this fascinating demonstration from this remarkable artist.

*****We will be removing our art from Boomerang’s on TUESDAY, AUGUST 29 at 10AM.*****

If you would like to replace/add/remove art from the Storefront Gallery, it will be open after the meeting on Sat, August 19.  Check with Marilyn Nelson.

Feel free to bring new/old/forgotten art to our meetings for critique/praise/sympathy anytime!

Looking ahead:

September will be a demo of mosaics by Edward Moores who is in Spanish Village Studio 26.  Mosaic artists have the best toys…


In October, perhaps a tour or visit to Watercolor Society in Liberty Station.  Also: Visions Quilt Gallery is in the same building, for your fabric fix…more details later.


The Clairemont Art Guild

Founded in 1954

The purpose of the Clairemont Art guild shall be for the advancement of creative arts in the community and for individual growth through association with the Guild.


We will encourage each artist to create his or her own work, expressing individual interpretation of the subject.


We will strive to keep our aims and integrity above question. Copy work will not be exhibited.

The CAG holds monthly meetings, presenting lectures, demonstrations and critiques. Exhibits by credentialed members are shown in libraries and other locations. There are annual judged and juried shows at which ribbons and cash awards are given.

The CAG is associated with Mesa College Art Department. Awards are presented each year to outstanding art students from Mesa College.  We also present awards to students whose work is in the Student Division of the San Diego County Fair.
