One might think a silent movie would be odd to see in this day and age but The Artist is exceptional. The Oscar winner was shown at the Fluvanna County Library courtesy of Friends of the Library. Showing films twice a month is becoming popular in these parts and people are enjoying these outings. Add a comment

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.
