Saturday October 27th, 2018 will be cubist day in the gallery. We will focus on cubist interpretation of a still life that Dennis Smith will set up. If you prefer, you can paint it in any style and with our favorite media.
Here are two links to review cubism. First is a quick overview of styles from Apollo magazine at
For the more adventuresome, here is a MoMA YouTube video intro to more complex cubism
Dennis hopes that a few attendees will attempt this along with him.
If you a photographer who is adept with Photoshop, the multi-view image in the video could be created from multiple photos with creative use of layers, masks, and blend modes.
The gallery will open as usual at 10am. About 10:15am we will screen and discuss the YouTube video and then start creating. I hope we can all support each other in this creative challenge!
If you have your own paints and media, please bring it along. We will have limited sets for those who want to paint but don’t have their own supplies.
If you have questions or think you might join us, please contact Dennis Smith directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do let us know if you’re planning on coming – we want to have a minimum count to have this go forward. Thanks!!
