Rob DeBartolo will be demonstrating his pored ink techniques on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 in the Ceramics Room of the Newington Senior and Disabled Center at 120 Cedar St, Newington, CT 06111.
Rob DeBartolo – a self taught artist – has lived and worked as a printer in Connecticut for over 40 years. His experience in operating a small print shop led him to explore his deep connection to color ad its limitless possibilities. This passion with color and his knowledge and use of inks led to experimenting with monotypes, studying monotype techniques in New Haven, CT for over 15 years, and the creation of a new technique using diluted inks. This method requires the ability to “pour” inks on paper to create landscapes and flowers. Rob is also an accomplished artist using pastel, acrylics and collage. He owns and operates a gallery on the shoreline in Essex, CT where he shows art by local artists on a regular basis, as well as his own work. His works have been shown throughout New England and are in private collections.
You can check out his work on his website at www.RobDeBartolo.com
The general membership meeting of the Newington Art League will be held on Wednesday, October 8th at 6:30 p.m. at the Newington Senior and Disabled Center on Cedar Street. After a brief business meeting, the demonstrator will be Jane Zisk. Ms. Zisk will give a demonstration on Framing, with do’s and don’ts and some examples. Meetings are free and open to the public. Jane Zisk is the Founder of the Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society. Jane was inspired by the American artists who were painting in Cos Cob, Branchville and Old Lyme in the late 1800’s and decided to carry on the plein air tradition made popular by J. Alden Weir, Childe Hassam, and others. Jane, who has been an artist for over 30 years, has also worked as a framer for many years at Hartford Framing in East Hartford, CT. All art whether it is representational or abstract is a spiritual path to Ms. Zisk. Having overcome a chronic illness Jane sees her art as a healing experience.
