SUE MARRAZZO SHARES THE ART & BARRIERS EXHIBIT

Yesterday, It was the opening reception for the NEW Art & Barriers Show at The State Museum of Pennsylvania. The show is the second juried show for me with the DOSHI Gallery and The Susquehanna Art Museum. This exhibit is right next to the Art of the State 2014 Exhibit. After attending the reception; I viewed the show next door. 
What an ART-FILLED DAY!!! 
When I first came to the Art & Barriers Exhibit...I was blown away! As you can see in the photo...My painting can be seen from the sign in the entry. I am so honored to be exhibiting in this show. 
When in Harrisburg, check out the ART in this venue...

'Midsummer Pastoral'
An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell




'Midsummer Pastoral'
© Claire Beadon Carnell
Oil on Archival Linen Panel
14 x 18
 
This was such a pleasure to paint.  The scene
is from a rural area that is close to where we
have our cabin, and because the farms are run
largely by the Amish and Mennonite families, the
hay bales are actually baled with baling wire
instead of plastic.  This gives the bales so much
more character, and each one retains its
own 'personality'...perfect for this artist to paint.

A Small Work Of ART By Sue Marrazzo


I have been creating collage and mixed media cards for sale in a few ART venues. They have been well received. I enjoy making these small works of art. This is one that I sold recently. It is created with acrylic paint, collage papers, hand-painted papers, buttons, and a found ticket.

BEGONIAS BY THE POND By Cecelia Lyden

The Conestoga House Gardens was our SVPAP group's second stop on Wednesday. Again, the weather was hot and humid, but I found a shady spot near this pond. In the time we were there, I was able to get the whole composition down-most of the back and middleground and some of the foreground. I neeeded to do more detail work on the statuary and the flowers. My camera did not pick up the details or the different shades and tints in the begonias and leaves in my painting.This garden in Lancaster is a beautiful place to paint.

THE PRIVY By Cecelia Lyden

It was a very warm and humid day Wednesday, but the many large trees on President Buchanan's estate, Wheatland, provided us with enough shade and breezes to make it comfortable. The grounds were lovely and the peroid architecture made the buildings so interesting. This charming outbuilding, surrounded by daylilies and bathed in dappled sunlight, caught my eye immediately. I was surprised to learrn that it was a privy. I have never painted an outdoor bathroom before-probably never will again, either.

"Eggs-actly" An original watercolor by Donna Berk Barlup



"Egg-actly"

An original watercolor by Donna Berk Barlup

In June I took a watercolor workshop with Linda Baker.  We learned how to pour watercolor. It was four incredible days and I learned a lot using this technique.
 This is one of the paintings I did during that class.

HONEYSUCKLE BY THE LAKE, 11x14 oil, by Sharon Benner



Today I painted at Codorus State Park, Hanover, Pa.  The sky was pink at 7 a.m. and the 90 degree forcast caused me to paint fast and I was home by 11 a.m.                                          
                                                                     
                                                                 
                                                                 
                                                                   
                                                                   
                                                                     
                                                                     
                                                                     
                                                                        I changed this painting today.  I realized that I had made a big mistake in making the lake blue.  If the sky is pink then the water, which is reflective of what is above it, must also be a warm, pink color.  The distant hills will also be influenced by the sky color and atmosphere, even the reflection in the water will be affected.  I think the painting holds together now.  I guess I need to paint on location more and paint what I see not what I think I see! 

"Summer Fun" by Michael LeKites

I think I'm finished. Acrylic on canvas, 18x24.

Oil on Linen Panel

On my very first day painting for the Westfield, NY
Plein Air Event, I went to Barcelona Harbor
and found this great little lighthouse.  The clouds
were in and out, but when they were out the light
that was striking the lighthouse was incredible.
Such a beautiful place, and I had such
an amazing time with the other artists who
were participating - I love my job!

Hemlock Valley Original Plein Air Painting by Mary Beth Brath - Daily Painter of Pennsylvania

Hemlock Valley Plein Air by Mary Beth Brath
10x8" Acrylic on Masonite

Last week was full of painting and family fun. Northwestern PA is such a joy. I rode my bike packed with plein air supplies down a dirt road and set up on one of my favorite bridges. I used to swim in this creek as a child.

 


Sue Marrazzo Visits GOGGLE WORKS

I was just at The Goggle Works Art Center recently to pick up a painting in a juried show. I visited the Gallery Store, too. I also have work in this beautiful space! I took a few photos with my cell phone. 
I LOVE this store!!! The store carries 2-D and 3-D works in all mediums. The photo is one of my new mixed media diptychs.
