|There will be 15 of my new "Touchstone" series|
at the Hudson Artists Fall Show.
Something new this time around:
Three judges have been invited to name a Best of Show. They are:
Christian Gonzalez, publisher of "Talents d'ici",
Madeleine Turgeon, Vice-President of the Conseil des Arts et de la Culture, and
Carole LaTulipe, professional artist and visual arts teacher.
Member Judith Harvey, best known for her "old masters" style of still life oil painting, will give a one-hour demonstration of her technique on Saturday, beginning at noon. Sponsored by a grant from ELAN, this is free to both AHA members and the public.
This is a live demonstration with emphasis on classical techniques and approaches, such as 'Chiaroscuro', 'Rembrandt lighting' and 'colour palettes'. Also to be discussed, the importance of composition and lighting set-up, especially with regard to still life painting.
President John Goodger has donated a lovely painted landscape of Hudson Sandy Beach to be raffled off in support of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence.
When and where:
The show opens on Friday, September 30, 7 - 9 pm, and continues Saturday and Sunday, October 1 and 2, from 10 am - 5 pm. It will be held at the Stephen F. Shaar Community Centre, 394 Main Road in Hudson, Quebec.
I will make an appearance on Friday evening and will staff the greeting card sales on Sunday, beginning at 2:30 pm. I do hope to see you there!
