PAINTING IN A DAY: LEAFING, ACRYLIC TRANSFERS & FINISHING TECHNIQUES
Oregon College of Art and Craft (OCAC), Portland, OR | Sat, Nov 2 from 9am-4pm
My first workshop at OCAC last spring focused on an assortment of transfer techniques for both toner-based and ink jet photographs. This upcoming fall workshop offers participants the opportunity to create a finished work atop metal leaf using photographic imagery of their choice. Transfer techniques will be covered (so don't worry if you missed the first workshop), but more of the focus will be on simplifying the leafing process, working atop imagery with a variety of wet/dry media, and different methods for protecting/preserving the final work.
This 1-day workshop is offered at a 20% discount if you register on or before September 20th-- as the Spring workshop sold out I encourage you to register soon to ensure your place. I hope to see you there!
SITKA CENTER FOR ART AND ECOLOGY
ANNUAL ART INVITATIONAL
Miller Hall, World Forestry Center, Portland, OR | Sat-Sun, Nov 2-3 from 10am-4pm daily
EXCLUSIVE! Party with the Artists | Fri, Nov 1 from 6pm-10pm
Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, situated on one of the most splendid points along the Oregon coastline, holds an annual art exhibit and sale that benefits both Sitka and the artists. Sales of artwork are split 50/50, thereby supporting the center while staying true to Sitka's mission of supporting artists and their work. A mere $5 buys an adult ticket with unlimited re-entry over the weekend and those 18 and under are free- a splendid deal considering you'll see 450+ works of art by 120 regional artists.
For those interested in meeting the many artists involved, an exclusive Friday night party (and I do mean party) occurs on Friday night complete with gourmet hors d'oeuvres, craft brews and regional wine. Tickets for the Party With the Artists are $45 each and can be purchased here. Seriously people, this is one of the best art parties of the year! Images of the work I'll be selling at the exhibit will be posted soon. . .
I am pleased to report that I'll be returning to Portland for the first weekend in November to offer a 1-day workshop at OCAC (Sat, Nov 2) and celebrate the ongoing success of Sitka Center for Art and Ecology by taking part in their annual Art Invitational at the World Forestry Center (Sat-Sun, Nov 2-3).
