MacKechnie to demonstrate at GMAG meeting

MacKechnie grew up in Washington, graduated from the University of Washington, and since his retirement, has pursued a career in fine art. His goal in art is “to isolate, depict and capture the essence of a subject. I seek qualities that are elusive, difficult to discover and portray. Painting for me is about sharing my view as I witness and savor the visual moment.”
