HAMDEN ART LEAGUE May 14th Meeting
Hamden Art League's final meeting of the 2012-13 year will feature a demonstration of the use of Paintstiks by artist Diana Lyn Cote.
For nearly two decades Cote has been exploring, developing, and teaching her style in this unique oil paint medium. She finds they allow a freedom and texture not found in other oil media. "Much like oversized crayons, it affords me the expression of calling on my inner three year old to scribble layers of erratic lines to eventually mix color into representational shapes.
Catching the playful habit of light, and also the light hearted, playful energy that went into creating it is my focus and subject matter no matter the specific image. This approach and application makes each piece lush in interest not only from afar, but in an abstracted way, they are visually satisfying under close up inspection."
The meeting will take place in the social hall of the Miller Memorial Library Senior Center, 2901 Dixwell Avenue, Hamden, CT. Coffee and conversation begins at 7:00 p.m., followed by a brief business meeting at 7:15 and the artist's program at 7:30. If the library is closed due to inclement weather, the meeting will be cancelled.
