Holiday Party

December 13, 2017
7pm – 9pm
Maryland Hall, Room 308

Join us for our annual holiday party!  Guests are welcome at this event.  Please bring ‘finger food’, either savory or sweet, to share.  And yes, we will have wine this year!  Feel free to bring a bottle to share; no hard liquor, please.  Non-alchoholic beverages will also be provided, of course.

We will once again have our gift exchange, so if you wish to participate, bring a wrapped gift, preferably art-related, in the $10 – $20 range.  You will receive a number as you enter.  When your number is called, you may choose a gift, or ‘steal’ one from someone else – your choice!

April Rimpo
Watercolor and Fluid Acrylic

Nov. 8th, 2017
Marlyland Hall – Room 205

April  Rimpo works in watercolor and fluid acrylic, focusing on fluid acrylic for the last several years.  Loving to paint on watercolor paper and chasing wet paint, April has learned to love the immediacy of fluid acrylic. In her program she will share her approach of working on an abstract background and developing an expressionist image that allows portions of the abstract to show through. Since shifting to fluid acrylic April had two paintings included in North Light’s AcrylicWorks3: Celebrating Texture, one painting in AcrylicWorks4: Captivating Color, and two selected for AcrylicWorks5: Bold Value.

April Rimpo, “Morning Song”

April has said “Watercolor and fluid acrylics allow me to work more loosely than the tight rendering characteristic of my earlier oil and pencil work. I believe it is the fact that watercolor and fluid acrylic flow in unpredictable ways that inspires me. It absorbs me into the work; allowing the piece to develop in directions not fully planned as I respond to the flow of paint. This is part of the thrill of working in watermedia that I didn’t find in other media.”

Having traveled extensively across the United States and abroad, April captures and shares her experiences in her bold acrylics and watercolors. Rimpo’s work allows the viewer to experience new cultures, and the stories and people of far-off places.
