April 2013 Members Show
Opening night of Spring Art Show in Town Hall Lobby.
The furniture has been moved and boxes have been unpacked. The new Newington Art League, Inc. space at 679 Willard Ave., Newington, CT is ready for member painting workshops to begin!
There will be painting workshops on Monday, April 15 at 9:30 am with Flo Dickie and on Tuesday, April 16 at 6:30 pm with Pat Tanger. Attendees should park in the parking lot on the right side of the driveway as you pull in. There is a handicapped parking space to the left of the driveway for those who need it. The entry is across from the three bay garage on the back of the house.
There are three individual rooms for painting. The sunniest room in the apartment has been set up with easels and two 6′ tables. There are sections of plastic drop cloth ready for use to protect the hardwood floors. One room has been set up for use as office space, but certainly can be used for painting as well. There are still a few items we will be taking care of as part of settling in, but it is ready for members to enjoy. Please come join us!
There will not be a Monday morning members painting workshop or a Tuesday evening workshop until we get settled in our new location. We do hope to be ready to paint by April 15. Please call to confirm before you come to paint.
Artist Suzan Fox will be demonstrating her techniques in egg tempera painting Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at the Newington Senior and disabled Center, 120 Cedar St, Newington CT. The demonstration will be in the Ceramics Room and will follow a short business meeting that starts at 6:30.
Suzan says “Growing up in a family of artists, I never really thought of being anything else! ”
After attending Paier and Silvermine, Suzan worked in fashion illustration and advertising layout and design, continuing to freelance for many years in lettering and backgrounds for major comic strips and comic books. This included, Orphan Annie, Juliet Jones, Beetle Bailey, Disney, Dennis the Menace, Marvel and DC. Then back to advertising for another 14 years.
After painting in Gouache for a long time, Suzan went onto Egg Tempera and continued to study with Koo Schadler. “My interest in it actually began when I was a child. I observed my aunt, painter and illustrator Lorraine Fox, mixing pigments with egg yolk. It fascinated me! From that point on it was always in my head to try this strange concoction. It’s the most enjoyable medium for me.”
Suzan now teaches Egg Tempera classes at The Gallery on the Green in Canton, Connecticut.
