Please join me at Jen Tough Gallery on July 30, 2017 for a discussion of work in the current Earthly Evidence show.
Earthly Evidence is a small invitational group show featuring work by Carol Dalton, Mark Eanes and Michael Shemchuk. Not to be missed, these Bay Area artists have exhibited together before but not for years. Each artist works with found materials including paper, maps, old text books, and other ephemera mixed with paint and mediums …. creating layers of “Earthly Evidence”. Show will run until Sunday, August 6. Check https://jentough.gallery for gallery hours.

Mixed Media Workshop
“Abstraction by Design” A mixed media workshop given by Michael Shemchuk(Shem).
Shemchuk is a SF Bay Area artist who is represented by several fine art galleries.He shows his work internationally. His mixed media abstractions combine the use color, line, textures and composition to enable a pictorially designed space that is layered with both a visual meaning and an undeniable intentionality.
The Exercise: We will be working on a diptych:Duets.(Two separate panels synced to work as one linear piece).The focus here is to simplify and un-clutter. To create ,within the square, a surface with fine textures, limited color and delicate line(marks). The materials (mediums) we use are also limited: Paper, paint (6 colors) & graphite. Students in this work shop will not only be employing their painting and collage skills, but will also be applying their design, balance and layout skills as well.
NOTE: Class size limited to 8 students
