Upcoming Art Demonstrations and talks

On Thursday evening, September 11, I was invited by the Salem Art Association of New Hampshire to give a painting demonstration to kick off their new art year after a summer hiatus.  I started with a power point presentation, "Out in the Open", which I helped to create for high school art students interested in plein air painting. This presentation can be found at  http://www.slideshare.net/NewburyportArt/plein-air-painting-with-nhs-students?ref=http://newburyportart.sqsp.com/

Here's a appreciative note from the President of SAA:

 Hi Susan,

Sending a quick note of thanks for your demonstration at our art association on Thursday.

Everyone enjoyed your presentation and we were wowed by your demo....  amazing to see a composition put together so well, in so little time.

Also, your open attitude and composition tips were appreciated and very well received by our members.

Thanks again, it was a pleasure to have you and your demonstration at our meeting.

Best regards,

Margaret Moon Hames

On Wednesday evening, October 1 from 7-8:30, I'll be giving a talk and printmaking demo at the Melano Center in Melrose, MA. I've been asked to talk about my linoleum prints and the reductive relief technique.


In Newport, Rhode Island on Sunday November 2 from 1-3:30 fifteen member-artists of the Boston Printmakers (including me) will be giving talks and sharing their prepared special food recipes at the Newport Art Museum.  The Boston Printmakers members show, PALETE TO PLATE will be on view through January 4, 2015.  For more info concerning this BP exhibit as well as how to purchase the related exhibition book and recipes go to:  http://www.newportartmuseum.org/Exhibitions/Now-on-View/Palate-to-Plate

On a final note, The Concord Art Association, with sponsorship from Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, selected my plein air painting, Egg Rock, for use in CAA 's 2015 calendar. Selected images were juried and had to depict the town of Concord with the theme of "Light and Space".
