Tonight at Curiosity Club: "Color and the Artist's Palette"
Posted on 19 May 2015
Tonight at Hand-Eye Supply Curiosity Club, we dip into the chemical complexity of making high quality paints! Ancient art urges meet modern methods, 6pm PST at the shop and streaming on the CC homepage.
As artists, designers and makers, we are always working within the confines of our materials. There is nothing more natural and enduring than oil painting. For 600 years, oil colors have been the preeminent medium of visual expression. And within this time, the world has become increasingly more colorful.
Scott Gellatly, Product Manager for Gamblin Artists Colors in Portland, OR, will discuss the nature of oil painting and the evolution of painters' most important tool: COLOR. A working artist himself, Scott will also share the aspects of colors that painters consider when selecting a palette to express their artistic vision.
Scott Gellatly is a landscape painter living in Portland, OR. His expressive, atmospheric plein air paintings have been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions. His work is represented by Brian Marki Fine Art in Portland, OR and Palm Springs, CA. Scott is the Product Manager at Gamblin Artists Colors in Portland and has lectured and demonstrated across the United States, Canada and Australia. Scott work can be seen at www.scottgellatly.com.
