Why don't you join me for some of these events... much fun will be had, and I would love to visit with some of you I have not seen in some time.
I have been busy painting and creating ... and planning! Here is a list of what is coming up:
- (1) Sept. 14-16, 2012 (Fri.-Sun.) -- Fall Plein Air Festival, Blue Ridge GA in conjunction with the International Plein Air Painters' World Wide Paint Out. Here is thea link to the Blue Ridge Mountains Arts Association page for the festival: http://www.blueridgearts.net/Pages/PleinAireFestivals.aspx;

Pastel Plein Air
I have four artists coming from Florida and one of my friends from Darien, GA! I know there will be many of our local artists participating and painting around the town of Blue Ridge and the surrounding Toccoa River area. On Sunday afternoon, there will be a showing of work done in The Art Center ... and some ribbons/awards will be given to artists that wish to participate in the "competition" part of the event.
Not every artist needs to feel pressure to participate in the competition ... it is more about being outdoors and painting from life. And ... getting to know other artists! So, if you have ever wanted to try plein air painting, this is the time. Several of us have said we will gladly take inexperienced artists under our "wing" and give them the benefit of what we have learned. Won't you come join in the fun ... you just never know what you might accomplish.
- (2) Sept. 22, 2012 (Sat.) -- One Day Plein Air Workshop, Rome GA, sponsored by the Rome Art Coterie. Here is the information they have put out about the workshop ... and it is coming close to being full;
Oil Plein Air
"The Rome Art Coterie presents A Fall Plein-Air Workshop with Artist Marsha Savage on Saturday, September 22 at Oak Hill in Rome, GA. The cost of the full-day workshop is $60 ($50 for Coterie members). Class size is limited to twelve. Currently there are four spaces available. The workshop begins at 10:00 AM; bring your lunch.
Marsha is a winner of multiple awards and is represented in several galleries. Each year she conducts workshops between her travels in the U.S. and Europe to paint her favorite subject, the landscape, in oils, acrylics and pastels. Participants in the workshops can work in any of these media.
During the workshop, Marsha will do a demo and will come to each participant’s easel for one-to-one interaction. Contact Randy Eidson for registration at 706-295-2296 or firstname.lastname@example.org ."

Pastel - Workshop Demo
We have 26 artists participating at about 12 locations ... and more may be added before the date. There is a page on the blog for the "Artists of Northwest Atlanta" that has a small description for each artist and a link to their web sites or blogs. The blog is still being updated with the listing of the addresses. So check it just before the event for all the latest information and locations.
Now... I will create another post about some of the "other" stuff I am doing (even creating another blog for some art that is not painting!) ... this has become quite a long post. But, I had not posted in a couple of months and the fall is a busy time of the year ... so wanted to let you know some events coming up I hope you will come see!
Stay in touch with me ... and I want to hear what is going on with you.
