Join us in welcoming Virginia landscape artist, Ed Hatch, in a show featuring his best aquatic paintings.
“I see art as a visceral, almost spiritual means of communication. Since I was a boy, I have known that art fulfills me and speaks to me in ways that I find difficult to express in words. But, what I find in nature is quite simply, pure poetry. I strive to express this in my work. I see such extraordinary beauty in everyday moments – moments that might go unnoticed. I want people to participate in my paintings – to be caught up in the scenes as much as I was when I stopped to paint them – to feel the depth, the fleeting light and the mist, to wonder what is around the bend. That’s it, I think, to share the wonder. I find great joy in my work and I am fortunate to do what I do every day.”
PLEIN AIR WORKSHOP WITH BETH BATHE
2 Day Workshop 9:00am - 4:00pm, Saturday - Sunday
Evoking A Sense of Nostalgia in Plein Air
"How The Heck Does She Do That?"
Beth Bathe is a nationally known plein air painter and juried artist in the past three Plein Air Richmond competitions. Her website is www.bethbathe.com.
Beth's painting style is unique, looking somewhat like a watercolor, or is it an oil painting? She uses Cobra Water Mixable Oil Colors in thin washes with a limited palette, using unconventional tools such as squeegees and Q-tips along with her brushes. Her paintings evoke a nostalgia of an old sepia toned photograph. Beth is highly influenced by Andrew Wyeth, and her subject matter is often that of the "vanishing landscape", buildings, barns and old towns of a time gone by.
Open to all levels, supply list available upon registration.
Please bring your own plein air easel/pochade. Plan on painting outdoors in downtown Richmond weather permitting.
Please contact Brazier Gallery at (804) 358-2771 to register.
