June Show Your Art event is cancelled, but we have an awesome Zoom Demonstration by Eric Shute!
June 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
We are disappointed that we have had to cancel, yet again, our annual in person June 16th Show Your Art Show to keep us all safe.
However, we have our incredible program volunteer Mike Killelea to thank for finding the awesome artist Eric Shute who will demonstrate his considerable skill for us on Zoom on Thursday evening, June 16th at 7 pm! We will send out a link to the Zoom event to all NFWS Members on Monday, June 13th.
Eric shares: “My only goal in watercolor is to “capture” the light of the scene and convey the unpredictable and spontaneous nature of the medium.”
He was born and raised in upstate New York and at an early age began his artistic training at the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, New York. Eric holds a degree in Education from S.U.N.Y @ New Paltz, a degree in Advertising and Illustration from Mohawk Community College and a BFA from Syracuse University.
In addition to his academic training, Mr. Shute studied painting technique with nationally recognized artists: Hong Nian Zhang, (oil painting), advanced watercolor with Richard Segalman, advanced abstract painting with Jenny Nelson and water-based Monotype with Lisa Mackie all at the Woodstock School of Art.
