Description

A “still life” is a story… The subject matter needs to contain elements of the story, they are not objects to be rendered… that’s illustration. Making a painting from elements of a still life needs a thorough exploration of what can make an engaging composition. I will supply the subject material, the lighting and the discussion and demonstration to guide you through the process. It’s challenging and its pretty fun too!

JohnDavid Anderson

Come take a walk on the sentimental side of life as OAG's WENDY REID of Art Haven presents her 'Inspired By' exhibit at the Alton Mill Gallery through March.

"Welcome to the Show and Welcome to my new series: 'Awe My Heart!'
In this series I investigated and recorded a moment in time. It is paramount that we grab opportunities to be kind and sentimental. Things are so fast paced in today's world.
What inspired me to create this series? It's my love for people, mother nature, a love of nurture and change. A snapshot in time can be change, frozen. This allows the viewer to see what I see. These sculptures are the intersection of my family, love, art, and soul. As you might have guessed they all have clues and symbols. Come take a walk on the sentimental side of life and see a frozen piece of time, with relevance and beauty. See things through this artist's eye."
