Tom Dunlay Workshop at Ceres Gallery Announcement
As the warmer days of spring melt the last patches of snow in the woods of New Hampshire, thoughts of summer come to mind. Ceres Gallery has the most sought after, internationally recognized, MASTER painter coming to present a workshop with our local students in July!!
Tom Dunlay will be our first, guest Master Painter to offer a 3 day workshop, on July 26, 27, & 28. We are beyond excited to have this descendant of Tarbell and Benson share the knowledge that he gained from R.H. Ives Gammell, who was an actual student of Frank Benson. Tom continues to pass on the techniques that were handed down to him from the impressionist Masters of the last century, the founders of the Museum of Fine Art and the Boston School of Painters. Tom says, “This workshop will focus on the approach to out-of-door painting practiced by the Boston Painters from 1880 to 1930. Important aspects of outdoor painting will be covered in this intensive 3 day workshop.”
Tom Dunlay is an impressionist, a member of the Guild of Boston Artists and a past president of the Guild. He approaches painting in a “workmanlike manner” with a goal of getting to the “truth of the scene,” which is not necessarily “accuracy”. He paints the “truth in all of its simplicity and humbleness.” Tom says that being exposed to the early Boston masters had a profound impact on his painting career. We are so fortunate that he is willing to spend three days with us, sharing his wealth of knowledge.
If you are interested in attending this workshop with Tom Dunlay in July, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with Tom Dunlay Workshop as the subject.
The cost for all three days is only $375.
