Painting Demonstrations - October 1st in Atlanta

Why Grey Matters and Other Mysteries Explained

Next Saturday, Charles will be conducting two painting demonstrations with an emphasis on the importance of grey's relationship to color.

He will discuss how the painting process can be made easier and more creative through the use of items in Richeson's Grey Matters product line, as well as other Jack Richeson & Co. products and classic tools rarely used by artists today.

The demonstrations will take place at Binders Art Supply in Atlanta on Saturday October 1, 11:00 am and 3:00 pm. Please plan on joining us if you're in the area.

Charles Named an ARC Salon Exhibition Finalist

Well, the notifications were sent out earlier this week and we were very pleased to hear that Charles has been named a finalist in the 12th International ARC Salon exhibition!

We don't know yet which painting made it in since their list only included artists' names. To increase suspense they're withholding title and category information until the online exhibition goes up and the awards are announced in early November. Finalist paintings are also eligible to be chosen for inclusion in the live exhibition, a new facet added last year to tremendous fanfare and success.

The International ARC Salon is an annual exhibition created by the Art Renewal Center which has grown to be the most prestigious realist art competition in the Americas. Their website is a vast repository of classical realist art and receives over 5 million annual visitors.
