Spring General Member's Meeting, 12 pm - 4 pm
8510 High Ridge Road, Columbia, MD 21043
Lynn Goldstein Presentation – A Little Introspection, A Lot of Art
Have you ever wondered what inspires you to paint certain subjects or even formats? Have you ever explored how your personal history influences your present artistic choices? Lynn Goldstein has given these subjects a lot of thought over the years. Join her April 19th at the next MPS meeting as she discusses how she considered her own choices more carefully with regard to her artistic inspirations. Lynn will discuss her history to help illustrate how so many areas of her life and past inform her work. She will discuss composition, format, subject choices and more. Lynn's goal is to encourage fellow MPS members to delve into their artistic choices to better understand their work and to help develop a consistent artistic voice. Lynn will also do a short demonstration if time permits.
Lynn lives and works in northern Virginia. She paints in soft pastel and occasionally in oil. Lynn's work has won awards in many national juried exhibitions. She is represented in three commercial galleries and has been teaching adult art classes for ten years. Additionally, Lynn has designed and taught family workshops for the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery where she also serves as a docent. Recently, Lynn has been teaching workshop classes sponsored by the Jack Richeson Company. Lynn has also volunteered as the Maryland Pastel Society newsletter editor for a year and a half.
Get Ready It's that "Plein Air" Time of Year!
"If you are a novice at plein air painting and would love to do it but can't
figure out how to handle all that stuff, be sure to come to our spring
meeting. Your board members will be bringing various items that we use to
paint outside, with information on suppliers and prices, and we'll even have
time to comment on the items and our experience using them."
