Cobb Mountain Artists 2nd Wednesday Artist Presents March 12th, 7:00pm,
The Artisan Realm 16365 Hwy 175 Event is free and open to the public
This month's featured artist is Rich Koury.
Drawing and painting since he was twelve years old, Rich Koury’s early ambition was to be a cartoonist. During his career, which included work in aerospace, semiconductors and general contracting, art was just a hobby.
Now in retirement, Rich spends more time on art endeavors. Many hours are spent designing and building projects in wood, plastic and metal. “I normally do not make several pieces of the same design, as I enjoy designing new pieces and trying innovative ways of building them. I suppose this is the combination of engineering and art at work”-says Rich.
Rich has dabbled in art disciplines from oil and watercolor painting, to stained glass, ceramics, woodworking and architecture. He currently enjoys portraits, the human form and metal gilding. Now he is interested in clay sculpting, adding gilding and chemical etching to the sculptures.

Artists sought to enter 2014-2015 California State Duck Stamp Art Contest
Artists are invited to submit their original artwork to the 2014-2015 California Duck Stamp Art Contest. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) will accept submissions from April 25 through May 23.
The contest is open to U.S. residents who are 18 years of age or older as of February 19, 2014. Entrants need not reside in California.
The winning artwork will be reproduced on the 2014-2015 California Duck Stamp. The top submissions will also be showcased at the Pacific Flyway Decoy Association’s art show in July.
The artwork must depict the species selected by the California Fish and Game Commission, which for the 2014-2015 hunting season is the scaup (lesser or greater).
The design is to be in full color and in the medium (or combination of mediums) of the artist’s choosing, except that no photographic process, digital art, metallic paints or fluorescent paints may be used in the finished design.
Photographs, computer-generated art, art produced from a computer printer or other computer/mechanical output device (air brush method excepted) are not eligible to be entered into the contest and will be disqualified. The design must be the contestant’s original hand-drawn creation.
The entry design may not be copied or duplicated from previously published art, including photographs, or from images in any format published on the Internet.
All entries must be accompanied by a completed participation agreement and entry form. These forms and the official rules are available online at www.dfg.ca.gov/duckstamp .
Entries will be judged at a public event to be held in June. The judges’ panel, which will consist of experts in the fields of ornithology, conservation, and art and printing, will choose first-, second- and third-place winners and an honorable mention.
Since 1971, CDFW’s annual contest has attracted top wildlife artists from around the country. All proceeds generated from stamp sales go directly to waterfowl conservation projects throughout California. In past years, hunters were required to purchase and affix the stamp to their hunting license.
Now California has moved to an automated licensing system and hunters are no longer required to carry the physical stamps in the field (proof of purchase prints directly onto the license).
However, CDFW will still produce the stamps, which can be requested by interested individuals at www.dfg.ca.gov/licensing/collectorstamps/ .
