Soon Maritime Art List will be no more BUT Maritime Art Info is just beginning..CHECK IT OUT

https://www.maritimeartinfo.com

 


I’m pleased to announce the launch of Maritime Art Info!

I was so sad when I read that the Maritime Art List would be closing down; it’s such a valuable resource for our area (I’m an artist living and working in the valley). The more I thought about it the more I thought I could find a way to build a replacement (the service used by Maritime Art List is shutting down so I had to figure out a new option). It took longer than I expected, and was more of a headache than I expected, but it’s working :-)

It’s not exactly the same as the Art List, but it’s as close as I could get it to be. There is a small fee to receive the daily emails – every provider I could find charged money so I need the fee to cover costs. It’s very reasonable, and you can choose the amount you’d like to pay.

It’s free to list on the website so please sign up and post your news and events! There is also an instruction guide if you’re not very techy :o)

If there is another aspect to the service that you think would be a good addition please let me know – info@maritimeartinfo.com

I would love for this to provide the same service as the Maritime Art List has, but for that I need the community to come with me. Will you come? :o)

Thanks,

Isobel

Don Pentz ~ Images of the Keji Country Book Release


Don Pentz ~ Images of the Keji Country

Book Release

I stand by the chopping block holding an armload of split wood, the axe casually dangling from my other hand. I watch a silver vee in the water coming from an island about a hundred paces away. It’s heading straight toward my campsite. Beaver? I put the axe and kindling aside and go down to the lake for a closer look. I expect the beaver will veer off to one side once he sees me—but there’s no change in direction. As the vee draws closer, I notice its ears are not rounded like a beaver’s but somewhat pointed, more like a…Holy Dinah!…a bobcat!?”

Welcome to “IMAGES of the KEJI COUNTRY”, Don Pentz’s newly released book. This 130-page publication is fully illustrated with over 60 images of the artist’s watercolour and acrylic paintings, all in combination with his canoe-camping journal notes and personal commentary about the artwork. Through words and images, the reader is given insight into the artist’s thoughts and observations as he confronts the diverse challenges and decisions that make up the art-making process (on location and in the studio). When painting in the backcountry, one must be prepared to face circumstances that go well beyond the simple task of putting colourful pigments on a panel. Think blackfly season…

Aside from a truly visual experience and descriptive misadventures, this book is an expression of what makes the Keji country (Kejimkujik National Park) a unique wilderness adventure. For many, including this artist, it is truly a land of quiet inspiration and Strong Medicine.

Don Pentz’s history with Kejimkujik National Park in Nova Scotia goes back almost 60 years – as a woodsman, naturalist, park interpreter and artist. His gorgeous watercolours illuminate the pristine beauty of this special place and pay homage to the Mi’kmaq’s sacred ground.

ONLINE watercolour demonstration with William Rogers, CSPWC ~ REGISTER before June 14


Alla Prima Figure Painting

An ONLINE watercolour demonstration with William Rogers, CSPWC

June 16, 2021, 6:00 to 8:00 pm Eastern Time

CSPWC Members $20, Non-members $25

Register at https://cspwc.ca/alla-prima-figure-painting/


William Rogers, CSPWC, is known for his exquisite figure paintings, most often done from life.

In this two-hour demonstration Bill will paint a figure in watercolour, alla prima, from start to finish. He will use a photographic reference and will display the reference photo a few times during the demo for comparison. This will allow the audience to see how the artist captures the model and how he creates a painting that has aesthetic value as a work of art.

Bill will explain his process and considerations as he paints. There will be opportunities for questions during a break in the middle of the demo, and at the end. Questions can be typed in the chat box throughout the demo and will be shared with Bill during the question breaks.

Participants will receive a zoom link by email on June 14, 2021. A recording of the workshop will be made available to participants for a limited time after the event.

For questions about this event, please email education@cspwc.ca
