Here is the link to the video from the January Presentation.
Our January presentation will be the Bob Nonnemacher demonstration that was scheduled for a picnic shelter (our third) in October 2021, but canceled due to weather. He will be sending it to us Thursday January 17, 7-9:00 pm via Zoom from his home.
Bob will show how he paints a broad pattern of color, texture and shape, then cuts it apart and assembles a fractured pattern that engages the viewer in a different way. His work is anchored in the beauty of geometry. In his words: “One simple line on a canvas---not very interesting in-and-of-itself. Now add just one more line; perpendicular, diagonal, or parallel and interesting things start to happen. Geometric shapes and negative spaces side-by-side start to appear and interact as your eyes dance in every direction. Now add color to those lines, spaces, and shapes. Those colors add a certain flavor or feeling,
or remind you of places and things.
“When people view my paintings I want them to be moved by beauty in a simpler form …”
Now all January, February and probably March demonstrations will be sent to our members through Zoom.
We had no choice but to utilize Zoom last year, we got pretty good at it, and saw how it could help with cold
winter nights that are a safety concern to many of us. Our intent is to do this as a live meeting at the same
time for those who can make it, but there are technical issues that have yet to be resolved.
