“Demonstration” was first used in the 14th century. Its meaning has evolved through time to its current use, “an act, process, or means of demonstrating to the intelligence.”
Engaging their knowledge of light, color and composition, our featured artists will simultaneously paint their chosen subject (still life or portrait) in the intimate Arthur Bell Auditorium at the Harwood Museum. Dialogue will be encouraged throughout the demonstration between artists and the audience in order to invite new thoughts and perspectives.
Having the benefit of large screen monitors for each artist, the audience will be able to follow the detailsof each brushstroke and draw conclusions based upon similar and differing techniques. Palettes, rhythm and approaches to painting may be compared in an approximate 3 hour demonstration, including breaks.
Guest artist Kevin MacPherson joins the Fechin Art Workshop program to participate in a Dual Demonstration with Huihan Liu. They will show slides from their recent trip to China and will paint subject matter inspired from the trip.
As one of the leading national plein air painters, Keving is highly sought after as an instructor, lecturer and art juror. His subject matter includes landscape, still life and the figure, incorporating spontaneous brushwork and vivid color. He has won major awards for his painting with the Oil Painters of America among others and has been featured in national publications such as Art of the West, Wildlife Art, American Artist, International Artist and more. He is the author of “Landscape Painting – Inside & Out” & “Reflections on a Pond, A Visual Journal.”
There are endless benefits and opportunities in this educational environment led by the most accomplished painters in their respective genres.
Join us for this unique, creative experience!
