|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, cultural activist and publisher of "Talents d'ici",
Madeleine Turgeon, President of the Autour de Nous art group and Vice-President of the Conseil des Arts et de la Culture de Vaudreuil-Soulanges, and
Martine Therrien, 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!
