Pat Meick Artist of the Month Oct 20 - Nov 15

See her work at the Sidney Public Library and the Cheyenne County Community Center
October 20 - November 15
Cheyenne County Art Guild member Pat Meick of Gurley has been chosen Artist of the Month.  Meick's favorite media is oil painting, but she is an accomplished award-winning artist creating artwork in various media.  She enjoys working in pencil, colored pencil, watercolor, pastels, and experimenting with any media.  "I have found it very interesting and challenging to find the technique and results of the different media," she stated.  Therefore, she has enjoyed taking many workshops and trying the warm, cool, lights, darks, blending, and mixing - all evolving to come together to make a picture of her own.

Meick has served as Vice President and Treasurer of the CCAG as well as served on various guild committees throughout the years.  In addition she has benefited the Gurley community with her interest and skills and is currently working with the Gurley Centennial Committee.  She also has instructed and encouraged the Girl Scouts from Gurley with their yearly special art project.

She recently enjoyed a tour through a bronze foundry in Loveland, CO, and Fall Colors Tour up Pourdre Canyon for research for future artistic endeavors.  Meick is currently working on tole paintings for Christmas. 

Her artwork has been on exhibit and won awards at various art shows including the Cheyenne County Fair, Holyoke, CO Art Show, Carnegie Art Center in Alliance, NE, the McCook Community College Show, McCook, NE, Scottsbluff Art Gallery, the Association of Nebraska Art Clubs show, the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum Art Competition, the Yuma Art Show, Yuma, CO, and the CCAG Spring Art Show in Sidney, NE.

Pat Meick's water color painting "Iris" is on display at the Sidney Public Library.  The public is encouraged to view this fine artwork.  In addition, more of her fine paintings may be viewed at the Cheyenne County Community Center through November 15, 2011
