Gordon MacDonald is an artist's artist- meaning that whenever our gallery artists have a question about materials or process, we can always ask Gordon. He is so encouraging to everyone that wants to learn more! This talk will be suitable for both artists and non-artists alike to attend. Gordon will speak about his process of painting but also demonstrate how he uses different types of glazing to create some of the luminous effects he achieves in his paintings. You will also get a glimpse into a new work or two before anyone else. We love watching Gordon paint-it's meditative. Join us!
