SPRINGVILLE—Two upcoming Springville Center for the Arts programs will bring together artists, both in show and a workshop.
Beginning Feb. 28, a collection of work from the Tuesday Holland Painters will be on display.
What began as two friends painting in their kitchen has grown into more than 18 artists meeting every Tuesday to paint.
After the expansion of so many artists, Holland residents Debbie Radford and Debbie Richter arranged to move their growing group out of the kitchen to the Holland Methodist Church, where they currently meet. During warm weather they enjoy getting out to paint Plein Air. Artists who will be exhibiting include Radford, Richter, Sarah Tobin, Susan Rudnicky, Suzanne Borowicz, Sarah Smith, Susan Somerville, Linda Hall, Kathy McDonnell, Peggy Walker, Joan Burke, Nancy Palmer Miess, Sharon Fundalinski, Kathy Pisaro, Jennifer Parsons, Pam Mathis, Nancy Cerny and Sharon Bartell.
Their work will be on display through April 14 at the Harold L. Olmsted gallery, inside the Springville Center for the Arts. The gallery is open Wednesdays and Fridays from 12-5 p.m., Thursdays from 12-8 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m.- 3 p.m. There will be a free, opening reception featuring many of the artists on Saturday, March 10 from 6:30-8 p.m.
For budding artists, Nancy Palmer Miess will host three sessions on exploring the transparent, color-saturated alcohol ink painting. Miess will demonstrate how to use alcohol inks to decorate ceramic tiles, Yupo paper and other unusual canvases. Each participant will produce five or more finished pieces.
The Saturday sessions will be March 17, March 24 and March 31 from 1-3 p.m. The cost of the workshop is $72, $60 for members and all materials are included. Call 592-9038 to register. Springville Center for the Arts is located at 37 N. Buffalo Street, Springville.
