August OSA News

ART WITHOUT PASSPORTS SERIES:  Thursday, August 16, 6:30pm
"En Plein Air,"  Greg Lewis
The French term En Plein Air, or "in the open air" refers to drawings and paintings that are completed on location outdoors. This presentation will explore the experience of what the eye sees and the heart and hand express.
The act of painting outdoors has allured artists for centuries to heighten the visual senses, producing either a quick study painting, or a finished work of art. Among the notable plein-air artists are Claude Monet, Mary Cassatt, Winslow Homer, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Vincent Van Gogh, and Winston Churchill, just to name a few.

The OSA Gallery is free and open to the public:  Monday - Saturday, 1 - 4 pm plus special reception hours as announced in exhibit listings

Free Art Demonstrations at OSA!

OSA demonstrations are free and open to the public.  Join us for inspiration and information about creating art!
 
FIRST-THURSDAY EVENING DEMO:  August 2, 7:00pm
"Perspective in Plein Air Painting," Ken Klos
OSA member Ken Klos will share his plein-air painting knowledge, focusing on perspective. Ken is a senior project architect and project designer, licensed in the states of Oregon and California. He knows his perspective! During this demo, he will show how to apply this know-how in setting up a plein air painting.
Doors open with informal critique session at 6:30 pm, Demo at 7:00 pm

SECOND-THURSDAY DAYTIME DEMO:  August 9, 11:00am
"Collage Storytelling," Colin Manning
Colin Manning will give an introduction to his medium’s potential for storytelling, personal expression, and social commentary. In the spirit of exploration, he'll show how his collage subject emerges by searching through magazines and books to find images that speak to him.
Colin received his BFA in Painting and his MFA in Filmmaking, both from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1998 and 2000. Through a technique of collage and painting applied “backwards” to glass and plexiglass, Manning conjures up a dynamic confluence of the transcendent and mundane.
