From 1 to 4 pm on August 29 our 2015 Art Fair Featured Artist, Carol Zack, oil pastel artist from Chicago, will provide a Pastel Painting Experience, designed to introduce the participant to some easy pastel painting techniques that will engage the participant in understanding a pastel painting process, the quality of materials and presentation needed using artists’ grade oil pastels and a finished frame. Participants do not need to have painting experience to successfully complete this exercise. All materials are included. Cost is $140. The deadline to register has been extended to August 26.
A Solo Exhibit by artist Cathee Roehrig will be on display at the Art Center starting August 11 and run through September 12. The Artist Reception is scheduled for Friday, August 14 at 5 pm to 8 pm. All are welcome to attend!!
