Transcending the Photo Reference in Painting with Alyssa Monks

June 20 @ 10:00 am - June 22 @ 4:00 pm
Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre, 139 Water Street
ST. Andrews, New Brunswick E5B 1A7 Canada
+ Google Map

This workshop is designed to guide the students toward creating a painting from a photo reference, using both indirect and direct traditional painting techniques. It aims to instruct painters on how to use the photograph to create a painting that surpasses the look of the photograph, not simply imitates a photograph.
The workshop will explain how to create a useful photo reference, covering topics such as ideal lighting, camera settings, lenses, Photoshop, and printing. The process will begin with preparations such as choosing a composition through quick sketches from a variety of reference photos, progressive oil sketches with limited use of the photograph, and then laying in the composition with an imprimatura wash. When that is dry, the students will learn to create color relationships that portray the space and volume, creating the illusion. Emphasis is then placed on paint application and ways of activating the surface.

Hymn for Her in Concert

June 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Eastport Arts Center (EAC), 36 Washington Street
Eastport, ME 04631 United States
+ Google Map

Eastport Arts Center is psyched to present our favorite backwoods blues-folk-punk-psychedelia act, Hymn for Her, on June 21 at 7 pm. The high adrenaline duo have been busy touring across the country and abroad over the past few years, with their unique sound which has been described as “Hell’s Angels meets the Amish.” The semi-nomadic couple describe Maine as their “heart home,” and enjoy visiting their cabin in Deer Isle whenever they can. The couple is currently touring to present their latest release, "Pop-N-Downers." Mingling textures and tones far removed from the “hayride to hellsy” twang-rock blast of their 2016 release, "Drive Til U Die," the songs on "Pop-N-Downers" exude sophistication and a charming, childlike whimsy.

Eastport Arts Center is excited to feature "Portrait of an Artist as Santa Claus: An Alaska-Style Summer Holiday Show" by Ken Waldman on Wednesday, June 26 at 7 pm. Waldman combines Appalachian-style string-band music, original poetry, and storytelling in his unique performances, and in his Santa-inspired show will after each poem or tune go into the audience to give away the book or CD that contains the piece he just shared. The event will thus be part traditional roots music concert, part literary reading, part storytelling festival and part holiday gift exchange! Waldman adapts each show to the performance place, and in Eastport promises not only an evening of fun, inspiration, and surprises, but local musical guests, special treats, maybe a tasty experiment or two.

Summer Workshop Series: On Your Marc … Get Sip! … Go! A sip ‘n’ paint exploration of the animal art of Franz Marc

June 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Eastport Arts Center (EAC), 36 Washington Street
Eastport, ME 04631 United States
+ Google Map

A sip ’n’ paint event inspired by Expressionist painter Franz Marc will be offered from 7-9 pm, Thursday, June 27, at Eastport Arts Center. Organizer Sue Riddle, who has named the event ‘On Your Marc … Get Sip … Go!’ notes “I am drawn to Marc for his fabulously colorful animal paintings—which are just juicy, glorious things. In one article I read, it mentioned that he wanted to see animals from their perspective, but he also wanted to use colors as symbols of certain qualities and emotions.” Participants in the event (a follow-up to Riddle’s Sip ’n’ Klimt, inspired by the works of Gustav Klimt, held last year) can choose to copy directly from a Marc painting or create a tribute based on an animal photo brought from home. Another option is to attempt to recreate or continue one of Marc’s ‘lost’ works, referencing images from Marc’s sketchbook, created in the field near the time of his death in World War I. All materials will be provided for the sipping painters, as well as things to sip (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and snacks.

Jack Williams in Lubec

June 29 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
crow town gallery, 406 south lubec rd
Lubec, ME 04652
+ Google Map

Cobscook Bay Music's first concert featured Jack Williams back in 2009. Jack returns to Lubec for the fourth time to celebrate CB Music's 10th anniversary with a performance at Crow Town Gallery on June 29th. Jack will also perform at a house concert on June 28, and present a workshop benefit for the Lubec Area Musician's Philanthropic Society on June 30. Information and tickets for all these events can be found at CB Music's web site at https://cobscookbaymusic.com The music of Jack Williams, rooted in his native South Carolina, was shaped by a 59-year career of playing folk, rock, jazz, R&B, classical and the popular music of the 30s, 40s and 50s. He is counted among the most dynamic performers on today's "folk" circuit - "...one of the most enlightened and entertaining performers I've ever encountered", said Dave Humphreys of Two-Way Street Coffeehouse in Downer's Grove, IL. Jack is considered a "musician's musician," an uncommonly unique guitarist, a writer of vivid songs with a strong sense of place, and a storyteller in an old Southern tradition who further illustrates each tale with his guitar. Rich Warren of WFMT "Chicago's The Midnight Special" said, "His artistry is nothing short of amazing." Vic Heyman, in SING OUT!, wrote, "He is one of the strongest guitar players in contemporary folk.”
