Workshop with noon Lunch | Friday, May 2, 9:30am-3:30pm | Warm Springs Gallery | $150, includes lunch
Known for blurring the line between watercolor and oil paintings, Beth Bathe's unparraled style evokes feelings of nostalgia, like an old sepia-toned photograph. Beth uses unconventional tools along with her brushes focusing on composition, values, edges, and drawing rather than color. During this one-day intensive workshop, Beth shares her unique technique with students. In the morning, Beth will do a demo and show how she uses photography and simple apps on her phone to simplify forms, enhance value and emphasize composition. In the afternoon students will work outdoors on location ( weather permitting). Students are encouraged to use water soluble oils to get the most out of the workshop.

August 6 - September 28. New Paintings by Henry Isaacs
Vermont artist Henry Isaacs paints with energy, passion, and self assurance. His style-broken brushwork and a palette of delicate blues, greens, pinks and yellows-marks him as one of the most recognizable artists painting in New England today. In person, Isaacs is as engaging an individual as you will ever meet. He is both worldly and down to earth, both witty and self-effacing, generous with his time, and passionate about the dangers of the art world's becoming overly commercialized.
