Portrayal of Women by Janis Wagoner

Composed and expressive, these women are the artist’s family, idols and models. Janis Wagoner attended the College of Art and Design now known as CCS.  She enjoyed being part of the artist scene by working at the Detroit Artist Market.  Janis was the recipient of numerous awards from the Michigan Watercolor Society and once had a solo show at the DIA. I am pleased to share these oil paintings in the gallery; these are my mother’s paintings.

Abstract Painting

Abstract Art Workshop
Justin Bean

Friday, 2/2/18, 7:00pm-9:00pm   Justin Bean repeats his popular workshop on Abstract Painting. Justin will lead participants through a playful exploration of acrylic paint, palette knives and masking tape with the intention of creating abstract art. We’ll explore wet-on-wet gestural painting and the use of a dry base layer to create texture and dramatic color combinations. In addition, we will introduce tape into the painting process to create layered compositions with increasing complexity and vibrancy. The end goal is for each participant to produce at least one frame worthy painting. $25.00 includes materials.
