Today was our first Breakfast In The Gallery event for 2011. Chris Helton started us off with a wonderful pastel painting demo done on Wallis pastel paper. Chris first applied an underpainting of watercolor and worked from a series of photographs she had taken at Beaverton's City Park. Her composition focused on the city's newest art installation, with the playful fountain in the background and lounging figures in the foreground. Unfortunately, I left my camera at home so I have no image to post at this time. Along with Chris' delightful demo, guests were treated to complimentary coffee and continental breakfast fare.
Breakfast In The Gallery will take place once a month through October at Art On Broadway with Gretha Lindwood working in oil on June 18 and Paul Mathenia sharing watercolor techniques on July 16. Rae Campbell is scheduled to demo fused glass design on August 20 and Sue Jensen will offer her process for painting with collage on September 10. The demonstrations take place from 9 a.m. to noon. Since we're located just 3 short blocks from the Beaverton Farmers Market you can park once and enjoy both events. Or you can take the MAX train to the Beaverton Round stop and walk three blocks south to Broadway.
