Artists Talk

Talk and Demo with Janet Schwartz and Dave Kaphammer, pastel artists

Thursday, May 31, 2018
6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

In the Barn Loft Gallery

The exhibit In Motion, at Rest showcases the recent oil and pastel paintings by Janet Schwartz and Dave Kaphammer, who share an interest in the nature of vehicles, but with two very different viewpoints. Janet is inspired by the motion of vehicles. Her work focuses on urban and highway landscapes that convey motion and energy.  The scenes are often viewed through the lens of a windshield, blurring and distorting the sharp reality of the world outside. Dave is fascinated by vehicles at rest—what happens when the motion stops, as these vehicles quietly sink into the landscape. His work focused on patterns created by dramatic light and shadow, explores tractors, trucks, and vintage cars, some abandoned and left to rust.

Please, join us on Thursday, May 31st, from 6:30- 8:30 pm for an artist talk and demo. Janet will present a slide presentation highlighting her techniques for creating energy and motion in her compositions. This will be followed by a pastel demonstration by Dave.
