Hope Studio Artists | July 2018
WNED’s Horizons Gallery will feature Hope Studio Artists from July 2 through July 29. Sally Treanor, a watercolor instructor at Hope Studio, is coordinating the art installation with a wide range of artists.
“Our approach is workshop style,” said Treanor. “It is a project-orientated class in which we all work on a same problem. I have 15 to 20 people painting with me every week at all different levels of experience.”
As Garden Walk Buffalo approaches, the collection of art for this exhibition will be an homage to that.
“We want to help with the celebration of flowers and gardens,” said Treanor. “A majority of the pictures will be floral-themed.”
The painters work in the aquarelle tradition, that is they use watercolors in a traditional transparent manner, with no white or black pigments, depending on the white of the paper for whites in the painting and blacks the result of mixing pigments together. The Hope Studio painters use a triad + one discipline of selecting pigments in each painting (one red, one blue, one yellow, plus one other pigment to achieve emphasis or darker value) as basis of color harmony. The triads change according to the subject.
Participants in this exhibit are: Barbara Billittier, Karen Carbonara, Diane Gianadda, Carol Kellogg, Mary Jo Ketchum, Carol Koziol Clark, Joan Kubiniec, Sandy Ludwig, Susan Markel, Pat McCain, Marcia Nagel, Dawn Northwood, Pamela Pollock, Audrey Ross Sanders, Linda Scarafia-Davis, Ann Sessions, Carol Case Siracuse, Catherine Skerker,Elizabeth Stanton and Sally Treanor.
