Skip Lawrence Workshop Registration Brochure

William Skip Lawrence: Expressive Artist
“I love everything about painting. I love feeling the paint, seeing a rich color spread under my brush onto a surface and the play between colors coming together. I love watching my idea take form until a painting finally says “it” and I am surprised and delighted every time. I love sharing my art and knowing that someone is moved by it. 
I see no hierarchy among realism, abstraction, non-objective painting styles. I see only the relationship of colors, shapes, surface and line that either thrills or bores me. When these elements come together to communicate an artist’s intention to the viewer, to connect with someone, it is nothing short of wonderful. 

The 61 paintings by members that will be on view at the Artists Group Gallery beginning on April 20, 2021 can be viewed here online on the same day. Stay tuned!!

Here is the postcard that was sent to members announcing the show. Nice work, committee and AGG Staff! You will be able to view all 61 paintings on this show’s page under Exhibitions in the menu on our home page on April 20, 2021. Click here.
