Artists from across the Cape and beyond are joining the Addison Art Gallery in support of Wild Care. Spearheaded by artists SaraJane Doberstein and Amy Sanders, and Helen Addison, Swooping in for Wild Care includes an exhibit of new works by gallery and invited artists, demonstrations from 3:00 to 4:30 and a reception from 5 to 7, live music, book signings and a raffle.
Educational animals planning to attend include two Eastern Screech Owls, Up Up and Nickerson, and Turtle #45, an Eastern Box Turtle. More information about these four-legged and feathery friends can be found here: https://www.wildcarecapecod.org/programs-events/animal-ambassador/
SaraJane Doberstein will be demonstrating the various techniques she brings together to create her backgrounds and foregrounds. Her preliminary oil sketch will be visible as she works directly over it. This will also show the editing and possible composition changes that occur during the painting process. These techniques will include combining glazing and layering with an alla prima approach using walnut alkyd medium. She will be working from photo references on a 16×20 inch linen paint board.
Join Amy Sanders to discover the secret to building depth and luminosity with pastel as I work toward bringing a painting to life through the building up of multiple layers. Pastel is a unique medium, in that the pigment particles retain their individuality within layers. If carefully layered using strokes in a variety of colors, weights and direction, light bounces among the particles creating a unique radiance that is the hallmark of the medium. Questions, comments and conversation of all things pastel are encouraged.
