Workshop: Perspective and Depth in Painting

July 12th - 1:00 to 3:30


Renaissance Gallery

Any drawing or painting is a two dimensional representation of a three dimensional scene, whether it be a portrait, landscape or still life. The subject may stretch across a table, a room, the yard or to the horizon, but is reproduced on the single plane of paper or canvas. Adding depth to the reproduction increases the representation of reality. The work becomes more alive, more lifelike and gives more sense of being there.

Workshop will focus on the use of Linear Perspective in the creating art or illustrations of three dimensional subjects in a two dimensional drawing or painting – how to draw things so that appear to be solid objects and not flat objects and how to relate them to each other.


The workshop will cover:

·         Principles of Linear Perspective – horizon lines and vanishing points. One, two and three point perspective. Indoors and Outdoors.

·         Application to common shapes often found in drawings and paintings.

·         Advanced uses – measuring in perspective

·         Other depth enhancement techniques – Aerial perspective, value, layering and others.

We will have examples and exercises to recognize the requirements of perspective and show how to apply it.

Materials will be provided. Cost: $25 space is limited to pre-registration is recommended.

Workshop will be taught by local artist, Ron Haeberle.

Ron is an award winning fine artist known for his exquisite and detailed renderings of down town Huntington. Ron Haeberle began painting as a retirement pastime in 2003, studying watercolor at the Huntington Museum of Art in Huntington West Virginia. His work includes landscapes, seascapes, portraits and architectural studies. The landscapes are largely drawn from the natural beauty of his native West Virginia farms, forests and streams, and from the coastal low country area of South Carolina, a favorite family vacation spot.

He is a juried member of the Tri-State Arts Association in Huntington WV, The Renaissance Gallery Huntington WV, and the Fine Art Gallery – Tamarack in Beckley, WV. He has participated in a number of art exhibitions and shows including the bi-annual TSSA juried exhibition at the Huntington Museum of Art and the juried “Best of West Virginia” exhibit at Tamarack. His work has received a number of awards and he has completed a several pieces of commissioned work.

Leona Mackey at the David L. Dickerson Fine Arts Gallery

"I'm honored Tamarack chose my work for this month." ~ Leona Mackey


 You can see Leona's work at: Tamarack Gallery

Leona has six pieces on display in our current exhibition Natural Wonder: Art Inspired by the World Around Us. Which will be on display through June 6, 2014 in the David L. Dickerson Fine Arts Gallery, at Tamarack in Beckley, WV.


Leona Mackey, a long time art instructor at Huntington High School transitioned from ceramics and painting to dichroic and reactive glass in sterling jewelry pieces. Now she is concentrating on unique fine art works featuring fired glass in stainless steel mounts, either as wall hangings or free standing pieces. She received the first place award in the 2009 West Virginia Emerging Artist Exhibit.

 

Recently, she has been exploring reactive glass which has opened another world of creating with color. Using this glass, she is more aware of composition as well as color. Her work is ever changing, so there is never two of a kind. The dichroic glass can be combined with the reactive glass, adding a whole new dimension to her work.

 

After years of teaching high school and university students to discover their creativity within, I now have the time to further develop my own creative spirit.

Showing Art


Ohio University Show:

 

Many Faces of Art: the Artists of the Renaissance Art Gallery.


 


Artists of the Renaissance Art Gallery
Leona Mackey, Laura Moul, Susan Tschantz, Gary Lapelle, Pati Payne
Tess van Dijk, Fern Christian
Tuesday evening was warm and sunny. A huge change from what we had reluctantly become used to. This winter has been totally hard on us! But spring is here and time to break out the lighter jackets and be out and about. Such a joy to be out and about and at the opening reception of a new art show. This time not in our own gallery, but across the river in Proctorville at Ohio University, Southern Proctorville Center. 

 

The last few months the artists of the Renaissance Art Gallery have not been mopping around (much!) but busy in their studios creating fine art. It shows. The walls at UO are blooming with new artwork. And we got to interact with the art students attending classes at Ohio University.



 Meanwhile, Back at the Renaissance:

 


Friday and Saturday nights we also had the change to show our stuff to a new audience, those attending Arts Resources for the Tri-States presentation of Pirate of Penzences. Pati Payne and Susan Tschantz worked hard to present each of the artists of the gallery to patrons arriving for the dinner theater and show.
