Saturday afternoon, March 3 2012, the Club hosted a full house in the Upper Gallery. The draw – a presentation by club president Claudia Seymour. Topic: “Almost Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Pastels.” It was a great talk on the materials and techniques, tip and tricks for a successful painting.
Claudia generously shared with her audience her experiences and preferences for creating a great work of art. The event was sponsored by the Coast Guard Art Program (COGAP) Committee of Salmagundi Club.
Pastel sets donated by Great American Art Works (“Claudia Seymour” still life set valued at $325) and Terry Ludwig Pastels (“60 pc. Salmagundi Set” valued at $230) were raffled and all proceeds, totally almost $1000, will go to benefit the club Upper Gallery renovation fund. Raffle winners were Barbara Genco, Salmagundi Club Library Committee Chair, of the “Claudia Seymour” set and Arnim Kiwi, of the “60 pc. Salmagundi Set.”
