Join us for a fun night at R Gallery & Wine Bar as we learn from Bala Thiagarajanrajan during her presentation on Indian folk art forms. She will give a demonstration of how she paints her free-hand textured acrylic paintings. She has been painting in the style of henna body art by piping acrylic paint using piping bags and squeeze bottles for more than 10 years. Her paintings are done with precise patterns that are repeated consistently to create signature motifs influenced by traditional Indian patterns, science & geometry.
Join us for an evening of exploration and adventure with watercolor! You will go home ready to try some of these fun techniques on your own, incorporating them into any style of watercolor painting that you prefer.
hotographer Molly Menschel will be sharing a presentation about how intuition comes into play with the creation of art. She’ll be sharing stories and examples from other photographers and artists, as well as from her own experience while working in the field on documentary stories.
An Improvisational Painting presentation with artistic duo Roxana Astemborski and John Shively
Date: Tuesday, September 13, 2022
Location: R Gallery & Wine Bar – 2027 Broadway, Boulder, CO
September’s Member Meeting was a blast! Rox and John’s sense of creativity and fun was contagious.
With an open invitation to join in, several artists at the event picked up a paintbrush and added their own touch of color, line and form to the painting in progress. Rox spoke about how sharing a creation can free up an artist who may be experiencing blockage, or feeling boxed into a specific style or technique. Each unique brushstroke added to the whole – even those that were painted over, around, or skillfully smeared/wiped, giving texture and movement to the piece.
Being at R Gallery contributed to the fun and inspiration. We were surrounded by original art, enjoying our (purchased) drinks and each other. With focus on the creation of art, conversation was easy and inspiration was strong. In the end, I left feeling the buzz of an “Artist’s High” (similar to a “Runner’s High”, but easier on your knees). All in all, a perfect end to a fabulous evening.Read More »BAA September Member Meeting
