The Secret about Transparency: Oil Painting with Angela Stratton
The Secret about Transparency: Oil Painting with Angela Stratton
Gallery North
90 North Country Road
Setauket
631-751-2676

In this Oil Painting Workshop for beginners and intermediate painters, we will explore the ‘secret’ on how to render transparent objects; you will learn how to translate objects that you can see through and those that you can see in and what makes them different from solid objects.

In these two days all students will paint the same still life set up with objects that will depict transparency and those that are solid. The ‘secret’ is in the ‘seeing’, how one translates the object through color, value, edges and perspective. It is much simpler than you think.  This workshop will teach you all those principles and much more in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.

Each student will receive individual attention and everyone will go home with a completed still life painting.

Since 1978, Angela Stratton has built an impressive body of work, exhibiting widely in the tri-state area and on the web.  She is a prize winning artist whose Elected Memberships includes: Oil Painters of America; American Women Artists; Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club and Salmagundi Club.

Open to teens and adults

Dates: Saturday September 20 and Sunday September 21

Time: 1-4pm

Fee: $120

Garden City

The Adelphi University Exhibitions Program presents an exhibition featuring Oil Paintings by Brooks Frederick. Louisiana, born and raised, his work is a reaction to the indelible Gulf Coast oil spill of 2010. These evocative works will be on view in the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center (AUPAC) Gallery, One South Avenue, Garden City, from Sunday, August 31 to Sunday, October 12, 2014.

A gallery talk with the artist will be held in Performing Arts Center Room 216 on Wednesday, September 24 at 6:00 p.m.

Oil Paintings by Brooks Frederick is a series of paintings executed in tar recovered from the Gulf Coast after the 2010 oil spill. Featured in the exhibition are portraits of corporate executives, fishing industry workers, and the artist’s family and friends from Louisiana who are affected by the spill. The artist lets us directly encounter the material of the spill while inviting us to ask questions about the sustainability of our current practices.

Brooks Frederick has worked as a professional artist for 15 years and has been a faculty member in the Adelphi University Department of Art and Art History for nine years. His artwork can be found in collections worldwide. Classically trained as a figurative painter and sculptor in New York City, Frederick uses his traditional skills to address contemporary issues like environmental preservation, race, and class. Brooks maintains studio and teaching practices in NYC and his hometown near New Orleans. He is actively engaged in community building and environmental artistic movements in both locations.

To view glimpses of the works online, please visit art-galleries.adelphi.edu. The AUPAC Gallery is open Sunday through Saturday, from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. To receive updates, find us on Facebook under “Adelphi Galleries.”
