New Classes: Art Guild of Middletown (Middlefield, CT)


The Art Guild of Middletown holds its next Demonstration on Thursday, September 12th, 2013 at 7 pm. It will feature Wild Life artist Pat Morris.

imagePat, a native of Connecticut, began her art career in the 1970’s with a focus on pet portraiture. By 1980 she was also painting wildlife, in particular the wolves that she had come to know in her association with a wolf ambassador program in Connecticut. Through the years she continued to enjoy the challenge of the depiction of animals, both wild and domestic. She works primarily in pastel which she will be presenting but also enjoys acrylic, oil paints and drawing with pencil or silverpoint.

imageOur next workshop on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 9:30 am will be a Plein Air workshop lead by Jacqueline White. Jackie works in oils but will open the workshop to all mediums.

Jackie’s oils are done primarily on location wherever her travels take her. Her paintings summon ephemeral moments and emotions that are conceived in nature. Her rich color palette and lively brushwork capture the scents and sounds of the land; the rushing streams, rolling surf, nesting birds, rustling grasses and salted winds of New England.
