painting interrupted

Once not so long ago there where 50 some artists painting on studio day at the Shuffleboard Courts.  This was pre pre Stanton.

DSCN2199The artists are still here, part of the large membership of the Lake Worth Art League.  George Taylor seen in the photo below was then considered one of the younguns .  The LWAL mission has not changed in all these years.They are currently in a small space on Lucerne corner of L st. and try to accommodate  everyone with  membership growing . They make space for upcoming artists.   Today was Thursday open studio $5.  For myself I pulled out a work I never completed, started oh about 8 years ago.

Then I knew where I was going with it but not today.  Today it was a challenge to make something out of it.  Show you how long it was this canvass has staples on the sides of the canvas,  Staples  are no longer in galleries and studio shows only gallery wrapes* or framed paintings and of course no glass are the rules of today.  The current show coming down on Monday is a combined show with the Wellington Art Society.  The membership is growing weekly and the mission is still the same as when they first incorporated in the 1940’s.

*Gallery Wrap is a stretched canvas that is ready to hang without framing, staples are tucked inside the back.  not visible. Primarily framing is costly for artists and the other problem with framing it does not suit everyone’s taste or decor.
