    As we continue to adapt and adjust to these uncertain times, we continue to evaluate our planned programming and find some more creative options for sharing our members wonderful works with the group and the public. With this in mind, we are presenting a new exhibit online exhibit. 
     
    Amid the uncertainty presented to us, there is one continuous and comforting fact: artists don’t stop making art. As you have seen, Museums and galleries may be closed but online there are “tours” of museums from Google and other sites, free lessons and live streaming demonstrations are all readily available. Taking this as our guide we have created a 75th anniversary special exhibit, New Works in the Time of Corona… A Virtual Exhibit. 

    Please enjoy!

    Join in on a one-day workshop with Ron Thurston!

    Watch how your painting, abstract or otherwise, will come alive when the foundation is exciting. Different topics will be discussed or demonstrated. Personal expression is encouraged. This lesson is designed to explore color and compositional possibilities to spark ordinary subjects into eye-catching visuals. Dive right in. Ask questions. A casual friendly atmosphere makes the class a fun and rewarding adventure.

    I usually pre-draw for my demos (to save time) and you may do the same. Drawing skills are important but tracing or projecting is OK. Please keep your subjects simple. Students may choose from any subject, photos or sketches.

    Demos will be given along with individual and group critiques.

    This is not an imitation workshop. Individual personalities are encouraged. Lessons are designed to explore new color and compositional approaches that will make ordinary subjects into exciting paintings.

    Internationally renowned master watercolorist, John Salminen, AWS, NWS, TWSA, has work in permanent collections in the United States, Europe, and Asia, has participated in invitational exhibitions in fourteen countries, and has won over 240 awards. John is a frequent judge and juror for exhibitions worldwide, and his artwork is included in forty-two books. 

    His workshop, “Abstraction Through Design”, will encourage representational painters to experiment with a different style and will challenge experienced abstract painters to explore new possibilities in expressing their creative voices.

    The workshop includes demonstrations, critiques, and a lot of individual help. Artists are encouraged to expand upon their current levels of understanding while applying the principles and elements of design to their work. The workshop is for all skill levels, but participants must have familiarity with use of watercolor paper, paints, and basic watercolor techniques.
