Inland Empire artist and teacher David Fairrington will demonstrate portrait-painting techniques when the Loma Linda Art Association meets 2-4 p.m. Sunday, April 3, at the clubhouse at 1532 Lynne Court in Redlands.
The program is free for Loma Linda Art Association members. There is a $5 fee for non-members.
Fairrington is noted for realistic portraiture, landscapes, still life and Western art in a wide range of styles, according to a news release. He cites John Singer Sargent and Norman Rockwell as influences, and he has worked as a combat artist for the U.S. military.
“We are excited to host Mr. Fairrington for our April presentation,” James Ponder, president of the Loma Linda Art Association, said in the news release.
“Not only is his award-winning art remarkable in itself, but Mr. Fairrington also holds the distinction of having taught more of our member artists than any other person alive. We are honored to welcome him and look forward to his inspiring demonstration,” Ponder said.

Loma Linda Art Association suspended its monthly demonstrations when pandemic shutdowns began in 2020, but has recently resumed the programs, meeting at the clubhouse of a residential neighborhood in Redlands.
The group plans to move its meetings back to Loma Linda in the near future.
