“Shadow Play” by Lynn Ferris

“Capturing the Light”

Bring your work to the next level. Light and shadow shouldn’t be after thoughts in our paintings. In fact, good use of light and shadow is one of the best ways to take a painting from ordinary to extraordinary.

In her signature workshop “Capturing the Light,” Lynn will show students how to use light and shadow to design stronger compositions and bring drama to a variety of subject matter. Students will gain new skills and confidence working with shadows, light sources, creating glow, and more. Lynn provides handouts, reference materials, and lots of personal attention.

Location:
Holiday Inn Martinsburg
301 Foxcroft Ave, Martinsburg, WV 25401
304-267-5500 (Ask for special workshop rate)

Times:
May 14 9am – 4pm

‘Watercolor Impressions’ Exhibit Video Presentation

Our national juried watercolor exhibit is now open in the Berkeley Art Works gallery at 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg. The juror, Lynn Ferris, selected 32 works by 23 artists.

The Berkeley Art Works is open Wednesday to Saturday so we hope that if you live in the Eastern WV region, you will be able to drop by to see the work in this very interesting show in person. But if you live too far away to make it in to the gallery, we want to share the great work of the artists whose work was selected for this exhibit.

To view a short video presentation of the accepted works, click on the image below. The video will introduce you to the work in the exhibit but it is not a substitute for the experience of seeing the work in-person if you can make it into the gallery.
