Russ and Gene critiquing a work by Ken Hutchins
Come to the McDowell Arts Center, Tuesday 5/21, at 6:30 PM with one or two of your paintings/photographs for a critique session with Russ Smith and Gene Lazo. This is a very informal get together of highly motivated artists who want to improve their art through others' fresh expert eyes.
Russ Smith is a professional oil painter who specializes in aviation art. His works are sold all over the world and are displayed in various museums, some of which commission him to paint specific planes for them. One of the latest such commissions, is for him to paint "The Swamp Ghost" for the Pacific Aviation Museum. Check out his works at his web site: http://www.russellsmithart.com.
Gene Lazo is a professional photographer whose style is self-described as nontraditional. Gene creates fine art photographs, as well as, portraits of clients within their own space. He likes his subjects to be comfortable and most of all truly themselves before the shutter is released. He sells his own photography books filled with fine art photos including one of unusual guitarists and their guitars. His web site is: http://www.genelazophotography.com.
The audience can also participate in the discussion of any painting but Russ and Gene will monitor comments to make sure no one is overwhelmed or offended.
So come and get some help on that painting that you have stashed in the corner. Maybe all you need is a few suggestions to get it finished. It is free and open to all artists! Latecomers are welcome too. No excuse!
