September 2014 Program (RRAA Membership Meeting)

Gain Some Insight on How to Better Approach Your Artwork

Photographer, Pat Berrett will be the guest speaker at the September Rio Rancho Art Association's (RRAA) monthly membership meeting. This program will be held on Wednesday, September 10th at 6:30 pm (after the business portion of the meeting), is free to the public and you need not be a member to attend. The meetings are held at Don Chalmers Ford Community Room (also known as the break room) 2500 Rio Rancho Blvd., Rio Rancho.

Berrett holds dual degrees in English and Journalism and received his MBA with a concentration in marketing from the University of New Mexico in 1997. He teaches classes for UNM’s Department of Continuing Education and is a frequent speaker at art-related seminars.

Berrett also works for high tech and emerging-technology companies and has carved out a special niche among local dance and theater companies and received a Bravo award in recognition for his work.

Berrett is known as the photographer's photographer and the artist's photographer. His portfolio includes industrial, people, performing arts, and products. One of his specialties is photographing artwork for artists-all mediums, both 2D and 3D. His clients include many well-known New Mexico artisans and craftspeople and he has about 300-400 active clients per year. As a result, Berrett does see recurring problems across the board with all artists. Even with the well known artists. There are common 'mistakes' that are made, no matter what medium it is. Pat will be pointing these areas out for many of the mediums-such as painting, mixed media, 3D and photography, etc. and his talk will focus on what it is that artists need to pay more attention to in their work. 

Don't miss this talk and gain some insight on how you approach your work!
