A Lifetime of Drawing will be the presentation topic when the Art Society of Monmouth County (ASMC) meets on Wednesday, Jan. 17. at 10:30 a.m. in the Middletown Public Library at 55 New Monmouth Road.
Guest Speaker David Byrne will discuss his love of drawing and his passion for the medium that has lasted throughout his lifetime. This early interest led him into a career in industrial design, cartooning, and illustration.
The meeting is open to members and non-members.
The ASMC, which meets on the third Wednesday of each month, is a nonprofit, volunteer organization that aims to promote education and appreciation for the visual arts in Monmouth County. Besides monetary awards presented during each of four shows, an annual scholarship award is provided for a Brookdale Community College student enrolled in the Visual Arts Program through the Brookdale Community College Foundation.
This program is made possible in part by Monmouth Arts through funding from the Monmouth County Board of Chosen freeholders, and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
