|ARTS ALIVE - Festival of Visual, Literary, Music & Culinary Arts||Thursday, November 02, 2017 by Steve Hill|
Filed under: Exhibits and Events
I will have 16 original paintings in a special exhibit at Maple Hall, 104 Commercial Street, La Conner, with an opening artists reception Friday, November 3, from 5-9. The opening reception will feature live music, wine and hors d'oeuvres and is open to the public.
Don't miss my two live painting demos during the 3 day festivities. The first is from 1-3 p.m. at Maple Hall on Saturday, Nov. 4 and the second is from 10-12 on Sunday. I will be doing simulated, narrated "plein air" pastel paintings with subjects from both Cuba and Croatia, while working from reference sketches, photos (and my memory) of recent painting trips to both countries. My demos are engaging, fast-paced and spiked with a little art history . . . always give the audience a sense of "being there" as I complete a painting from start-to-finish, in less than two hours.
