Live, outdoor, watercolor painting demonstration and artist meet and greet event
Eden 1900 Art Gallery is hosting this upcoming event to help local artists gain skills and to provide Ogden Valley locals with an experience of fine art. Six foot social distancing and mask wearing are encouraged for the health of all while participating at this event.
Eden 1900 Art Gallery will present a live, outdoor, watercolor painting demonstration and artist meet and greet event on Saturday evening August 29th from 6:00 until 8:00 PM. Artist and Art Instructor Stephen Henry will create a watercolor painting during this event. Attendance is free. You will see him working with water from a local source to create his watercolor painting, preparing the paper, applying colors, and explaining his outdoor watercolor painting process.
This will be an outdoor event held on the back patio at 6355 E 1900 N, Eden. Prospective attendees are asked to text the gallery by Friday, August 28 on 801-745-2839 to reserve a space in the shade and to please bring their own lawn chairs, snacks, and beverages. Bottled water will be available. Temperatures at the start will be warm, but comfortable in the shade.
We look forward to welcoming you to attend this free event. An art experience while attending an outdoor social distance Live Watercolor Painting Demonstration on August 29th will be something fun and different.
August 29 is also the final day to view and purchase from the current collections of outstanding gallery featured artists Ogden Valley Artists Pam Brown and Sam Crump, and Ogden Artist and Art Instructor Stephen Henry. Works by additional Ogden Valley Artists Jan Carlsen and Deborah Hegg are currently on display. The gallery is working with additional local artists whose work will be on display beginning September 17th.
