SCARSDALE ART ASSOCIATION OFFERS EXCITING JOURNAL WORKSHOP
On Sunday, Nov. 11, from 1-4, the Scarsdale Art Association will hold its first meeting and reception at the Leahey Gallery in the Girl Scout House following the successful September Outdoor Show. According to SAA president Gina Thorne, "Our program is a multilayered event. It will have several elements aimed at challenging artists to use their talents in new and exciting ways."
The members’ Fall Art Show will adorn the walls of the Leahey Gallery. The theme: "Food, Glorious Food" will include oils, watercolors, graphics and sculpture. Prizes will be awarded.
Journal Workshop. Members will be invited to share journals they have created since the last workshop in July. Expanding the concept beyond travel, two presenters will demonstrate how artists can use art journals to enhance their work, to explore thinking prior to starting a painting as well as for experimenting with colors, objects and form for use in later works.
The presenters are:
Janet Patterson, retired textile designer and winner of numerous awards for her oils and watercolors. Janet will show her watercolor sketch books as a means of explaining how she works out color and composition prior to beginning a painting.
Phil Wallace, artist, illustrator and cartoonist. Phil will demonstrate some fun and easy-to-master ways of placing figures in paintings. He observes that "painting figures can be a challenge to those whose work does not normally include people, yet oftentimes, a landscape can take on additional meaning with one or two figures in it".
As with all Scarsdale Art Association events, the public is invited. There is no charge.
The Girl Scout House is located in Scarsdale, just south of Scarsdale High School, on Wayside Lane, 2/10 of a mile west of Route 22 on the right.
The Scarsdale Art Association, founded in 1938, is composed of artists and those interested in art. For more information, see
