NEXT MEETING: May 5 meeting will be held at the Rose Caracappa Center 739 Route 25A, Mt Sinai, NY

Agenda - Guest Speaker & Demonstration, Bar LoSchiavo, Holbein Family of Watercolors, Monday, May 5th, 7:30-9:00pm

Questions from our Watercolorists to Bart LoSchiavo, Holbein Manufacturer Representative - Watercolors  Demonstration were received by Bart April 12th with many of you curious about Holbein’s Irodori Antique Watercolors.  Let’s see what he brings to our May 5th General Meeting!
Instructors:  You are welcomed to invite students.  Let me Arlene know by Monday, April 21st, and she will provide an estimate to Bart.

Watercolorists, North Shore Art Guild, Inc. asked about:
1.       Holbein Irodori Antique Watercolors made with light fast pigments.  What does light fast mean and what will be the application results?
2.       Are there new colors offered in your Holbein Artists’ Watercolors?  What are their properties?  Can you tell us why, in your opinion, Holbein colors stand the test of time?
3.       There are watercolors on the market that are already in liquid form.  They call themselves pure, and high intensity.  Is that a gimmick?  Appease the watercolorists that they need not look any further than your line of Holbein Artists’ Watercolors.
4.       Can you explain the terms used to describe watercolors?  Explain the difference between pigments and maximum pigment concentration?  How will the MaimeriBlu watercolors assist the artist as they push their medium?
5.       Explain saturation, intensity, luminosity, light fastness as it applies to your products.
6.       What papers do you recommend, does Holbein partner with any company to achieve maximum results?
7.       Explain mediums and how they change the characteristics of your working surface?
8.       Any comments on using handmade papers?

Thank you to Frank Bilotta

I had never experienced an Artist Reception at the Holiday Inn Express and entered an inviting, well lit space, made ready by a lovely service for artists and guests.  Something extra was felt inside by the participating artists—a feeling of giving and doing something for the greater community.  North Shore Art Guild, Inc. was proud to make a donation to the Stony Brook Children’s Hospital.  Hearing our donation will be matched by a generous Benefactor was an extra bonus.  The talented North Shore Art Guild, Inc. thanks you.
Congratulations Frank.  Well done indeed.

NSAG Announcement - July 7th meeting – Demonstration,  Jennifer Von Stein, Atelier Acrylics
     Through color and form, I celebrate life, its pattern and its passion, creating representational and mixed media pieces. My paintings explore the magic of memory, by capturing present/past moments in the landscape and the figure, and past/future dreams through collage. The depiction of forgotten, beautiful spaces and found text/imagery bears witness to the reality of the outer and inner worlds, always telling a tale once told, once remembered and once forgotten.
     Influenced by artists as varied as Monet, Cornell, Wyeth, Johns, Heffernan and Helwein, my work develops along two distinct paths. Although they may seem disparate, my paintings and collages are stories with a subtle narrative thread. They are connected to each other in the way that an experience, and the memory of that experience, are related, but not the same.

     I hold a B.A. in Fine Arts from Loyola University and my work is in corporate and private collections internationally. As the Resident Artist for Chroma USA, I lead workshops and conduct demonstrations nationally on acrylic, oil and mixed media techniques.  For more information, please visit my website at www.jennifervonstein.com.
