On Saturday, February 23rd, SCNY members and members of the public were invited to a water color materials demonstration by former Art Committee Chair Sharon Way-Howard. The event ended with a raffle of materials donated by M. Graham and Co., Karen Loew and Annie Patt as well as Sharon’s finished painting.
Alex Katlan, who was upstairs hosting his own exhibition and sale came down to support the effort by purchasing a few raffle tickets and wound up winning the prize donated by M. Graham and Co., 21 tubes of Sharon’s favorite gouache. Ruth Mendez won a copy of Watercolor Magazine also donated by Sharon. Special thanks to Tom Hedderich for his help in setting up the room.
Next materials demo will take place Saturday, March 16th, 2-3:30 PM. Featured will be SCNY member Joe Gyurcsak, resident artist for Utrecht Art Supplies and noted author, instructor, juror and art materials expert. The focus of his demo will be acrylics.
