Save the date!! Saturday, April 25, 2020…it’s going to be a blast!!
As part of our continuing Artists in Residence program, we are pleased to offer a Plein Air Still Life demonstration by Andrée Tullier and Nancy McCarra during their residence in October.
Coming from the Impressionist tradition of painting, Andrée and Nancy have studied with many of the same artists and continue to fill their paintings with light and color. They will be doing a demo of an outdoor still life-painting side by side but each expressing their own individual style of how they start a painting,how they see color and their individual thought processes as they paint. Questions are welcomed as they work.
Free & open to the public
Taught by Christina Micket, these classes are a great way for kids to spend a Saturday morning! Our October class continues with a Halloween theme. We will be painting a pumpkin and some curious spiders on canvas. Then each painter will receive a small pumpkin to decorate. You don’t want to miss this fun pumpkin celebration! A fun way to introduce the basics of painting, each session includes instruction, all art supplies and a small snack. $15, Ages 5-12.
Andrée will present a short talk about her journey as an artists as well as her inspiration. She will discuss the road she traveled leading her to figurative and portrait work. The presentation will include a display of her past work, current work and work-in-progress.
Nancy will share a brief history of her artistic education and training and her pursuit as a profession artist. There will be a digital display of her works along with several of her recent paintings. Questions and discussion are welcomed during and after her presentation.

Our October exhibit is a one-woman show by multi-award winning artist, Holland Wentz Etheridge. She states “I feel excitement and the urge to draw and share what I see and experience. I find great beauty in sharp contrasts, patterns, intimate details, and subtle gradations of value and color,from the palest to the darkest. My process of creating involves intense, patient observation.Intimate relationships develop with each subject. Realism becomes interpretation.”
