Cambria painter Don Archer will be the next speaker in Allied Arts’ “Art Talks” series, addressing “The Language of Painting: What Makes a Painting as Opposed to a Picture.”
Archer will present his talk at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 20, in Conference Room 1 at the Cambria Center for the Arts, 1350 Main St.
Archer received a master of fine arts degree from UC Santa Barbara. He subsequently taught fine art for 10 years in the Bay Area, including six at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco. His works — featuring bold, bright colors in watercolor, acrylic and mixed media — have been featured in “American Artist” and “Southwest Art” magazines, as well as in six books.
In addition to his painting, Archer has pursued an interest in Eastern philosophy. His first job, in Ojai, put him in contact with philosopher Jiddi Krishnamurti and writer Aldous Huxley.
Archer’s presentation is free to Allied Arts members, and a $3 donation is asked of nonmembers.
