Workshop and one man show at Anderson Fine Art Gallery

by
Armand Cabrera


Clam Creek 36x48


Passing Rain 24x36


For those of you in the area I will be teaching a four day workshop followed by my one man show in Saint Simon’s Island Georgia. There is still room in the workshop if anyone is interested. I will be showing students how I approach a painting outdoors and in the studio and how to organize and complete small sketches on location in one sitting. We will go over composition, color theory and mixing from a limited palette, drawing, and application. Information is here or you can call the gallery directly at 912 634 8414.

My one man show is called Seascapes and Shorelines and I will have 15 new paintings. The paintings range in size from 36x48 down to 18x24. These larger works represent 6 months of my studio time this year. All are done from onsite sketches and photos from my trips to the area. I was really focused on emotional content and mood for these paintings. I love painting in the golden isles of Georgia I am looking forward to the show. The show will be up for a month and the artists reception will be from 6 pm to 8 pm October 7th.

Armand, what a gorgeous group of paintings! You've captured the luminosity of the seaside so perfectly, and you've got a great range of times of day and foreground interest.

I live here on St. Simons - you have captured the area perfectly.
Your paintings are so lovely! They have the "feel" of these views I have seen and not been able to capture as well as you do - I hope you sell a lot of paintings - you certainly deserve to. I haven't seen the show yet but I will be sure to do so.

Good luck
Suzanne on St. Simons
