City Art in Columbia, SC, will be offering free arts related presentations lasting an hour or less on Saturdays at HIGH NOON in the main gallery. These events will begin on June 9, 2012, featuring HIGH NOON with the Editors of Jasper Magazine. Cindi Boiter will be reading short fiction from her new book Buttered Biscuits, Ed Madden reading poetry from Prodigal, Mike Miller reading short fiction from Lonesome Pines, and Kristine Hartvigsen reading poetry from To the Wren Nesting.
The next Saturday, June 16, 2012, Esther Melton will be working with R&F oil pigment sticks to create one of her nature paintings in her new “Landscape Reflections” series.
Do you wonder how to make a good composition, to find the underlying structure in your subject? Do you struggle to keep your painting from turning into mud? On Saturday June 23, 2012, join Mary Bentz Gilkerson when she will be doing a demo painting in oil and giving you 7 steps to help you jumpstart your painting practice.
And to finish the month on June 30, 2012, award winning painter Anne Hightower-Patterson White will offer her expertise to artists during a walk-in critique.
In the coming weeks look for more demos and presentations from area artists and arts professionals and have lunch in the Vista while you are here.
