GENERAL MEETING, JOSLYN CENTER FEBRUARY 8, 7PM

 

JEAN PEDERSON, DEMONSTRATOR

Jean Pederson's imagery includes people, still life, landscape and abstraction. Although she is well-known for her mastery of watercolors, mixed media has become an important venue for her creative expression. The layering of a variety of media offers her an assortment of possibilities within her work; quality of edge, line and texture all play a role within her imagery.    Much of her work is portraits.  She feels that finding a way to express the human figure in a language that reflects the 21st century is perhaps the greatest challenge in figurative work today.

Pederson has exhibited her work internationally in the Royal Collection in Windsor, England, in China, London, Stockholm, at the United Nations in New York, in San Francisco, Mexico and across Canada. She is the author of Expressive Portraits: Creative Methods for Painting People.  She has been painting for over 20 years, balancing her strong teaching abilities and writing with her continuing aspiration to convey her ideas in visual form.

 

 

CVWS GENERAL MEETING JANUARY 11, 7:00 PM, JOSLYN CENTER

JANUARY GENERAL MEETING with  JAN SITTS, DEMONSTRATOR

In Jan's more than thirty years as an art instructor and professional painter, she continues her exploring and experimentation with the mediums. Her accomplishments in the art arena are many, working in commercial art, teaching in public schools, and teaching international workshops and a wide variety of art classes. Her studies include the
Kansas City Art Institute (Kansas City, Missouri), a B.A. degree at Western State College (Gunnison, Colorado), and ongoing workshops and seminars in the arts. Jan's focus is on layered and experimental art.

"My artwork is a reflection of who I am. I work in a spontaneous manner until I have built up a surface on a support by texturing, layering papers, and painting, often repeating this process many times. The ability to bring the various ‘raw’ pieces and layers of materials into their final stages, within the whole of a painting... is 'accomplishment'... the exploration and experimentation of materials is like discovering a new world... transforming a mundane painting into work that is unique.”

You won’t want to miss this lively demonstration by the colorful (literally!) Ms. Sitts. Come early to find a good seat, vote for Painter of the Month and catch up on all the upcoming events. Entry forms for the Plein Air / Small Image Show will be available at the front desk.
