On Wednesday, January 9, the Reading Art Association will hold a demonstration given by Randy Knowles, who will demonstrate a cityscape in pastels. Randy Knowles, an award-winning artist, works both en plein air and in his studio to create paintings capturing the New England Countryside, coastal settings and the urban landscape. Randy's own words present an exciting picture of his art:
"My intent is to evoke an emotional response from the viewer and not simply to create a historical depiction or illustration. Working both in oil and pastel, I focus on the use of light, color, atmosphere and perspective to create works that capture a brief moment on the busy city street or holds forever a moment of nature's magnificence. Be it a window washer, hotdog vendor or colorful pedestrian, my 'urban landscapes' highlight everyday life that we may otherwise pass by."
The demonstration will be held in the Guild Hall, First Congregational Church of
Reading. It begins at 7:30 p.m on January 9th. Details and directions to the church are available on our web site:
