"An Artist A Day" Demo Event - Tuesdays thru Fridays in August

Linda J. Baker in her home studio working with oil

This is the second year that Art On Broadway has offered free daily demos provided by members of our gallery. If you want to explore techniques in jewelry design, painting with soft pastel or encaustics, setting up and painting a still life in oils, etc., then this event is something you will not want to miss.

Each Tuesday through Friday in August, from 1 to 4 p.m. in the gallery, one artist will share his/her knowledge and skill creating a piece of artwork while you watch. It's a great educational opportunity if you're new to understanding how an artist thinks and works, and it's a source of stimulation and motivation for seasoned artists to try a new tool, a new medium, a new method, etc.

The schedule for the entire month is included in the Special Events section of our website. Check it out and drop by for 30 minutes, an hour, or for the entire afternoon.

New Oil Paintings by Linda Baker - "Viscosity At Work"

Linda Baker is a modern day oil painter whose paintings have the look and feel of something created in a much earlier time. Her subject matter, the richness of her palette, and her ability to fool us into thinking the copper pot, the china cup, and the ceramic vase are all much more than paint on a flat surface - these are the skills we have come to expect when we see a Linda Baker still life.
We are honored to have fourteen of her most recent paintings in our current featured show in the main gallery at Art On Broadway. The exhibit will continue through Saturday, August 30, and will include an artist's reception on Saturday, August 9, from 6 to 9 p.m. Please join us for a glass of wine and a chance to meet and talk with Linda about her art. 
When visiting us to see this show, be sure to review the step-by-step photo outline of how Linda created "Koi Vase," the oil painting featured here. You will also want to mark your calendar for her free demo scheduled for Friday, August 15, from 1 to 4, as part of our month long "Artist A Day" demo event in August. See the calendar on the Special Events page of this website.
