Townsend Atelier is proud to participate in an international exhibition project called
Women Painting Women: (R)evolution 2013, a juried show of artwork of women by women. The exhibit promotes the visibility of the best contemporary female artists portraying female subjects in the figurative tradition and showcases the quality, variety and breadth of woman making figurative art in the 21st Century. Works are available for purchase and include painting, drawing, printmaking and pastel.
Over 500 entries were received from female artists from 26 states in the US, Canada, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands and the Philippines. Juror and independent curator, Ellen Simak selected 36 works for this incredible exhibition.
Selected works will be on view September 7-28 at Townsend Atelier in Chattanooga, TN.
ART THROW DOWN!
demo: 5:00-8:00 p.m.
It's not a proper exhibit opening without an ART THROW DOWN!
Have you ever been amazed at how differently some artists see the same subject? Ever wonder if artists are competitive with each other? Have you been curious about the different ways painters begin their paintings?
Join us for this free demonstration "Throw Down" with Townsend Atelier instructors Cindy Procious and MiaBergeron. Watch as each artist starts, carries, and refines a portrait from life to its completion. Although Cindy andMia are close friends, watch them go brush to brush for this three hour painting demonstration, filled with laughs, antics and surprises. Questions, comments and hollering are all recommended from the audience. Both paintings created during the demonstration will be auctioned at the end of the night at 8pm.
