There are lots of exciting things are going on at Studio 1219. The Michigan Watercolor Show will be at the Studio through December 7th. The watercolor show includes 18 paintings, including Kristen Barton’s luminous “Banyan Patterns,” a dense, colorful canvas of vertical roots and fibrous elliptical leaves; Peter Gooch’s Best of Show “Sun-Oreti Beach, NZ,” where a slatted window appears to be opening in a field of sand and water-colored horizontal stripes; Jerry Bowman’s MWCS Award-winner, “Thinking Outside (and Inside) the Box,” a vibrant, intricately patterned still life of wood boxes, smooth stones and feathers; and Steve Fanelli’s creepy, but tranquil Donald Gooch Memorial Award winner, “Quarry Full Moon,” of a young man floating face up in a quarry, his face and chest washed in moonlight white above the waterline, and the rest of him fading from view in the dark water.
The Holiday Art Market runs through December 28th. If you are looking for that perfect holiday gift, this is the place to shop!
All that holiday shopping wearing you out? Sign up for a Lushes and Brushes Workshop! Enjoy an evening of painting or pottery with an instructor who shows you how, step by step. You’ll complete your project in one night. Enjoy a complimentary glass of wine!
