We have been working SO hard to make our 4th anniversary event a fantastic day for you… great deal$, great demos, great opportunities to try product… thank you so much, all of our awesome customers, for helping us to achieve this milestone!
Here is some of what you can expect to see this Saturday!
Our “main attractions” demonstrations will be held in our gallery, each will be about an hour long:
Laure Carlisle will offer a colorful demo in the morning, using the new Golden High Flow acrylics!
Tricia Reichert will demonstrate the new NITRAM Charcoal Sticks in the early afternoon!
Both artists will have some examples of their art hanging in the gallery all day – (if you fall in love with one of their paintings, they will be available for purchase!)
In addition, we will have demonstrations and play-stations throughout the day in the store.
Check out the NEW colors by Art-Graf called “Earth Colors”, and use them on Global’s new 100% rag cold press watercolor paper. These beauties can be used dry on dry paper, dry on wet paper, wet on dry paper – OHHH! THE POSSIBILITIES! Meet Dawn, our sales rep for this company – she can answer all of your questions! (Morning, again late afternoon)
We’ll be offering the opportunity to try a “blind taste test” with the Nitram Charcoal (no, you won’t actually taste them!) See if you can tell the difference between 4 different brands of charcoal sticks! Sandy will be handing out samples freely – don’t miss out! (Morning, again late afternoon)
Watch as William demonstrates how easy it is to do GOLD LEAF. I have been selling this product for years, and I always thought it was so complicated! Wow – it’s actually pretty easy! We’ll have plenty for you to try – check it out! (Mid-day)
Stephanie will be doing a demonstration using very cool metallic water-based paints & PATINAS made by Sophisticated Finishes – watch as the items she paints oxidize before your eyes! Imagine adding touches of these paints to your paintings, or refinishing a tired old frame?… (Mid-day)
Sandy has never done a Gelli-Plate monoprint before, but she’s such a trooper, she’s going to show everyone how to do it! Be there to cheer her on, and try it yourself! You can try all kinds of fun products at this table – the High Flow Acrylics, Catalyst Blades, Gelli-Plates… have a love affair with color and texture! (early afternoon)
