MONTGOMERY — Forty artists from the Wallkill River School nonprofit artist’s cooperative are inviting the public to a live demonstration from 5-7 p.m. Jan. 20 (snow date Jan 27).
These artists will be creating artworks using art techniques varying from traditional oil, pastel, acrylic, and watercolor painting, to palette knife painting and portraiture. The creative process varies from artist to artist, and the goal of these demonstrations is to give the community insight into the unique creative process used by each artist. The public is encouraged to ask questions and to enjoy free drinks and hors d’oeuvres while mingling with working artists.
Artists who will be demonstrating include Shawn Dell Joyce (award-winning pastelist), Susan Wilson (scratchboard artist), Lana Matich-Privitera (realist watercolorist), Mitchell Saler (large-scale Hudson River School), Mary Mugele Sealfon (Impressionist pastel and oil), George Hayes (palette knife oil and pastel), Sandy Spitzer (luminist acrylic), Laura Kohlman (watercolor),
