Yvonne Pearson – Reflections and CrittersK

Friday, August 21 to Thursday, September 3

These are reflections which I see all around me; in the sky, water, glass or wherever. I have included some of my animal paintings where critters seem to pop up magically and have also deliberately added other animals. I am interested in all things creative, and am constantly trying new ideas, media, and techniques. This is my life experience of fifty years. Come and enjoy them as much as I have while painting each one. I will be painting on black canvas during my AiR week.

 

Katie Argyle – Explorations, Part 2Katie_A_HS

Friday, August 28 to Thursday, September 3

My week long residency will focus on two projects: large scale painting and large scale printmaking, with spontaneous side projects and artistic exploration as the spirit moves me. Mine will be a eclectic week of art-making.
In addition, I am eager to work on canvases which are larger than I can accommodate in my small studio space. These works will be semi-abstract, symbolic, surreal and spontaneous as I will wait for my intuition to guide me at to their subject matter as the time for my residency dawns. Other large scale paintings will be on display.
One project is very planned and the other very loose. Come see what’s happening during my week in residence.
