Troy WeidenheimerTroy Weidenheimer, the Fluvanna Art Association’s workshop guru, was back with part three of his landscape series, this one on how to paint quiet waters. As most of the members discovered this was not an easy task and requires years of practice and skill to make it look effortless. Weidenheimer warned the group it would not be easy and they were prepared.

Though many amateur artists choose more often to paint landscapes, they do so because they believe it will be easier than painting people or even a still life. Weidenheimer zeroed in on the complexities of landscape painting and its consequential pitfalls.

Rob Browning with his art.It was hot, triple digit temperature day and in Palmyra they had no electricity, so things were heating up at Maggie’s house and elsewhere. But by 11, the lights and air conditioning were back on and the artists were chatting with onlookers about their work at the second annual Artist’s Studio Tour.

Loli and Paul Stams display thier art.This is the second time that the Fluvanna Art Association has hosted a husband and wife team of artists. A few years ago, Curtis Putnam and his then wife, Fei, exhibited their pottery. On Saturday (June16) the FAA hosted a well attended reception for exhibitors Paul and Delores (Loli) Stams at the Fork Union Community Center.

Paul does photography and this past winter spoke to members of the FAA about his unique and often offbeat photography. Delores or Loli as she is known to her friends and fellow artists, is more traditional in her approach to her art. Add a comment
