LONGTIME HOUSTON ARTIST AND ART INSTRUCTOR WILL DEMONSTRATE AT APRIL MEETING
SUNDAY, APRIL 2, 2 – 3:30 P.M.
Patrick Palmer has been teaching painting at the Glassell School of Art since 1992 and has been the dean since 2010. Throughout his 40-plus years of painting, Palmer placed works in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and many other museum and university collections.
Patrick will demonstrate the age-old aleatory practice dating to Da Vinci and beyond. The aleatory manner uses acrylic based washes on paper, an opaque solution that achieves transparency due to the high ratio of water to pigment, often 95% or more. Patrick will show how to use this tradition of aleatory mark-making to randomly uncover marks to determine not only the composition but a representational subject matter, in his case, the head.
The Theme for the April Show is "Borders and Fences".
