Tea and Talk events, organized by Coastal Arts Guild, are informal afternoon gatherings for anyone curious about art and artists. Learn about inspiration, techniques, materials, and more from practicing artists. Free and open to all! Held at 2pm most third Thursdays on the 2nd floor of Newport Visual Arts Center.
This month’s event will feature Jude Toler, whose work is currently on display in the Runyan Gallery as part of the “Varied Perspectives” exhibit. From the artist: I plan to bring materials that I use, different types of silk, and a partially completed painting, as well as a couple of hand painted scarves using resist and soy wax. I will cover a little history of silk painting, details of how I work, and a list of resources for those interested.
