On-line Zoom Presentation
WAA Monthly Meeting & BCAG Plein Air
FEATURED ARTIST | Renee Leopari
Tuesday, October 20, 6:30 pm
From early childhood, Renee has always been interested in art. However, art was never pushed or nurtured as a possible career path, so art became hobby for years. In 2008, she took an Advanced Painting workshop at Studio Incamminati in Philadelphia. From then on, she knew her focus had to change. Since that first workshop, she has continued to further her art education through workshops and independent study including Life Drawing and plein air painting sessions with fellow local artists.
Her newest works are primarily pastel paintings. Through her studies, she realized that painting with pastels has pushed her to explore and create more than she thought she could. Working with pastels can be quick and expressive in a way she wasn’t finding before. Working with pastels has also altered her overall painting style by giving it a turn toward impressionism.
She finds inspiration in the local seasonal landscapes of southern New Jersey; from the ocean and marshes to creeks and woods to farmland. When the weather isn’t so friendly, she and her painting friends move indoors to work on still life or the figure.
The WAA is teaming up with the Burlington County Art Guild (BCAG) to share the monthly presenters. The program for October will be presented through the BCAG link (this will be emailed as we get closer).
BCAG Zoom link will be emailed.
