The artists write:
We are a group of artists who have been meeting once a week for approximately five years in Tunbridge, Vermont. We share in a local drawing group to focus primarily on portraits. Most of us have been making art of one kind or another for most of our lives.
We use a variety of media: including oil paint, pencil, acrylic, and oil pastel - some using paper and some canvas. We paint and draw for 3 hours during each session and at the end of the session we line up the pieces to critique them and to enjoy the diversity of our perspectives.
This show is the result of those critiques. It has become an educational experience for us as artists, to see our diverse approaches and interpretations of the same model each week as we paint.
We bring these interpretations to show to you, the public, to help with your understanding of the creative process as well. We hope you enjoy viewing this process as much as we the artists have!
This show consists of new work, done in the last year.
