Framing Demonstration |  Jane Fuhrer, Owner of Sidewalk Alley Art & Framing

A note From Jane:  

As a small business owner in the Art Gallery & Custom Framing industry I would like to speak about both areas of work. First, the importance of preservation and presentation of all works of art, with examples of different materials to keep artwork safe and perfectly displayed throughout its lifetime. Also, I would like to share some selling techniques as far as art sales go, with examples of ways to reproduce work at different price points past just selling the original work of art, and of course, answer any questions the artists have to clarify ways to potentially sell their work.

Loose Landscapes in Watercolor | Lorraine Rimmelin 

Do you want to loosen up your painting style?

Painting loose requires the ability to let go of controlling watercolor and allowing the paint to move freely on the paper. Loosing control during a painting can be an artists worse nightmare but in this workshop loosing control is what helps create these dramatic landscapes. What’s most impressive about this painting process is the movement of pigment & water and the stunning shapes & designs you will achieve.
