The Matthews Artists Guild will hold a meeting on Feb. 10, 2015,  6:30 pm,  at the McDowell Art Center (MAC), 123 E. McDowell St. in Matthews, NC.

Work by Paul Keysar

Featured artist is Paul Keysar in a demonstration entitled “Night Paintings”.  He will demonstrate how to take photos at night and interpret the photos to create a night painting.  Emphasis on composition, light sources, subtle shifts in value and color.  Night scenes can be challenging with multiple light sources.  Learn about how different light sources affect the shadows, how the light falls and moves out from its source, and how to convey its intensity.

Keysar is known for his classic, representational oil paintings of landscapes, still lifes, and portraits. He has received numerous awards for his work, including, a Certificate of Excellence from the Portrait Society of America, Best in Show in the Richeson75 Figure/Portrait 2014 Competition, and named finalist in the figure/portrait category of “The Artist Magazine’s” 2014 Annual Competition. He has a passion for the land and is intrigued with the interaction of man and nature. Keysar maintains a studio at ClearWater Artist Studios, in Concord, NC.
