From the Wellesley Society of Artists:
On Wednesday, February 29th from 7-9pm at the Wellesley Free Library, the Wellesley Society of Artists is pleased to present artist Jack Standish doing a demonstration with egg tempera. Jack is a self-taught, Boston based realist painter who was influenced by Andrew Wyeth, Edward Hopper, and other artists whose works “tell a story with a single image.” He specializes in painting light studies using architectural settings.
Egg tempera painting is a specialized media, using a combination of egg yolk, water, and dry pigment. Egg tempera is an old form of painting, which has a history going back to ancient times. This medium provides wonderfully rich color values that the natural pigments afford. Examples of Jack’s art and inspiration can be found on his website – www.standishart.com
This demonstration will be held in the Wakelin room at the main library. The library is located at 530 Washington St., Wellesley.
The Wellesley Society of Artists (WSA) welcomes all to this free and informative event. The WSA was founded in 1933 for the purpose of encouraging and supporting local artists.
