Join Amy Sanders to discover the secret to building depth and luminosity with pastel as she works toward bringing a painting to life through the building up of multiple layers for a demonstration on the gallery lawn Friday, July 17 at 11:00. (Masks and physical distance required) Pastel is a unique medium, in that the pigment particles retain their individuality within layers. If carefully layered using strokes in a variety of colors, weights and direction, light bounces among the particles creating a unique radiance that is the hallmark of the medium. Questions, comments and conversation of all things pastel are encouraged.

SaraJane’s painting style ranges from traditional representational to contemporary realism, and her work reflects a fascination with the natural world and its transformations. Whether her subject is a glossy cluster of cherries, the chipped paint of an antique, or the colorful jumble of seashells on a beach, her paintings capture the larger-than-life essence of everyday objects and scenes. Her playful, whimsical approach to her subjects is balanced by a technical mastery of paint, which combines to create detailed, thoughtful, and energetic compositions.
