“Islands, Palms and Turquoise Seas” is the current art show at the Deltaville Library and consists of over 20 paintings showcasing the watercolors from Kathleen Noffsinger’s Travel and Paint Workshop in January 2009 in the Florida Keys.
Seven local artists who traveled to the workshop are displaying paintings from locations in Islamorada, Pigeon Key and Key West, and the public is invited to view the works which will be on display until June 30.
Each day of the five-day workshop the artists painted in a different location, which included the grounds at Coral Bay Resort, the marina at Worldwide Sportsman, conch cottages at Pigeon Key, and the Hemmingway home, Audubon House and the Butterfly Conservatory in Key West.
Noffsinger began each day with a lesson and demonstration related to the Florida flora, fauna, fishing and boating using a mix of colors local to the region. Beginner through advanced artists painted on site using both plein-air techniques (completed on location), partial plein-air techniques (begun outside and finished in the studio) and studio painting techniques (working from their own sketches and photos taken during the workshop).
Artists with watercolors on display are Marilyn Cotter, Bob Haynes, Joan Keith, Jane Koziol, Miriam Lindsay, Jan Price and Noffsinger.
Noffsinger will teach her fourth Travel and Paint Workshop in the Florida Keys in January 2010, which is open to all skill levels using any water media. For information regarding future classes, she may be reached at 776-7191 or http://www.kathleennoffsinger.com
