On Saturday, April 9, from 1 to 4 p.m., photographer Gail Lipson will use some of her digital images to take you step-by-step from her original image to the final print. Acrylic artist Michelle Jewett will talk about fluid acrylic art, her approach and demonstrate on a small scale how she creates fluid artwork.
Gail has been photographing her surroundings for over 40 years. Always drawn to water and reflections, it was on the banks of the Yuba River 33 years ago that she had to change plans and move to Nevada County. For Gail, transforming the moving image she sees through her camera lens into a still image on a two-dimensional plane is part of a creative, digital process. She considers her colorful landscapes as “portraits” of nature, still images bursting with life. In her demo at Art Works Gallery, Gail will use some of her digital images to take you step by step from her original image to the final print.
Michelle began her painting journey using acrylics and mixed media many years ago. For several years, she has been discovering and experimenting with fluid acrylic. By using acrylic paints in fluid form, Michelle is able to explore color, organic shapes and movement in a different, immediate way. She is drawn to negative space pieces, which she believes create elegant and intriguing compositions. Her work is often inspired by natural landscapes, such as mountains, flowing water, coastlines, flowers and colors. Michelle finishes her paintings with resin to bring out the depth of color.
