Nov. 2011 meeting

Award-winning watercolorist Nancy Deckant gives a discussion and demonstration at 7:30 p.m. Monday to McKeesport Art Group. The event is free and open to the public.

Deckant is also a musician whose first CD of original country and pop songs, Life Jacket, was released in June.

A juror at the Three Rivers Arts Festival for years, Deckant is also a member of the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society and the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh, and her work hangs in many corporate headquarters and galleries in Pittsburgh. She was recently nominated as the “Emerging Artist of the Year,” says Jan Catalogna, president of the Art Group.

The meeting is in the art room of McKeesport Area High School, 1960 Eden Park Blvd. For more information, email Catalogna at
