Monthly Meetings

Upcoming Meeting

Joan Bevelaqua
Brilliant Blacks

February 14, 2018, 7:30pm – 9pm
Marlyland Hall – Room 205

Myth of Possession #4


 There are certain colors that are a challenge to make look natural. Joan’s mixing and blending of color is at the essence of this demo.

One of the most difficult is black. Joan will show how to paint brilliant blacks using her, soon to be famous, Eggplant Still Life painting. (See attached photo) as the model.

She plans to talk about the Jeanne Dobie palette from Jeanne’s book “Making Color Sing” that she has been using for years. Jeanne is a nationally respected American watercolor artist, author, educator, and juror.

Joan Bevelaqua has made a mark on many aspects of the art community. A painter who works primarily in watercolor and oil, Joan has held teaching positions, juried art exhibitions, and directed several galleries. She also has held a number of organizational positions, including serving as President of the Watermark Gallery in Baltimore, Md. and on the Board of Directors for Foundry Street Studios and Gallery in Savage, Md.
