    Summer Day by Mary Byron


    This is the perfect class for you if you want to paint landscapes and you’d like to prepare to get outdoors in the fresh air to paint on location.

    You will be able to develop a solid painting foundation for making good choices, painting great landscapes and enjoying every minute of it.

    If you have a laptop, ipad, Fire HD or device that can access the internet please bring it to every class.

      Juror: Wendy Cahill

      Wendy Cahill, proprietor of Annie Grafics in York Village,  will be the judge of the May YAA show, Art in Bloom.  Wendy has a background in art which began in 1994 when she graduated from the Manchester Institute of Art, following a 2 year certificate program in Photography.

      She started photographing weddings, events, and family portraits when she realized her passion was  photographing people and capturing portraits of the environment.   When Wendy was in school she photographed her instructors’ young daughter at the Currier Museum in Manchester, in front of a Painting by John Singer Sargent. It became her signature piece and was used by the Currier in Publications to attract young visitors. 

      Wendy was Governor Lynch's Photographer for 8 years. In this capacity she photographed his inaugurations, personal events and the Governor’s annual family christmas card. 

      Gov. Lynch appointed Cahill in 2008 to the NH State Council on the Arts where she served  for 4 years representing Concord. In that capacity she helped choose Artists for new and renovated State Office buildings under the Percentage for Art program. She also helped choose recipients for the Governors Art awards, and helped decide where grant monies would be best used.

      Currently Wendy enjoys photographing wooden boats. She looks for details that you can get with a long lens of sail patterns, the grain of the wood, and polished brass.  In that end, she sails each year on The Mary Day, a schooner out of Camden. Her pursuit is capturing the beauty of passing boats, the rugged shoreline and the Mary Day itself.

        Summer Day by Mary Byron


        We will paint in York Village & York Harbor.
        Classes will be outdoors on location. We start with a short discussion of the method I use while painting in plein air and a short demo of how I start a plein air painting. Students will receive individual attention at the easel.

        We will discuss what we are seeing and focus on choosing a motif and designing a good painting. Thinking and planning ahead makes the painting process more enjoyable. We will learn and have fun! Midday there will be a lunch break. The afternoon will start with a review and discussion of the morning paintings. Depending on your experience you can expect to paint 1 - 3 small to medium sized paintings.

        The “PLEIN AIR WARM UP” class is recommended for anyone interested in the one day plein air workshop especially if you are a beginner to plein air and would like to be more comfortable with the painting medium and experience.

        An all Media, Member Only Show

        June 4 - June 28

        Thursday through Sunday, 12 to 5 pm


        Show Description: 
        What are the images that evoke the American Spirit for you? Are they of patriotism, nostalgia, courage or something else? 

        This exhibit will be connected with an exhibit, sponsored by us at the same time in the Kennebunk Room in the York Public Library, of a collection of photographs taken by a young American soldier, Galen E. Leavitt, during the Korean Conflict.
        The exhibit is a collection of black and white and color photographs of people, planes, landscapes, and humanity from 60 year-old restored color slides and black and white prints taken while Galen was in the U.S.A.F., stationed in Japan and flying missions into South Korea from 1951-1953. Galen's work affirms the spirt of adventure and inquisitiveness about another culture.
        We also will feature panels from the YAA Fiber Arts Group that celebrate the Town of York in this show.

            Fabulous Plein Air - Oil Workshop
            with
            Dennis Perrin

            "Gazing at Nympheas" by Dennis Perrin
            Instructor: Dennis Perrin

            Date: Saturday, June 20, 9-4 pm

            Fee: $110 member, $120 non member

            Dennis Perrin can best be described as a painter of light as it illuminates and describes the subject. Mr. Perrin always chooses to paint in front of the subject, not content to settle for photography or video as painting material. Dennis has been called a painterly American Impressionist in the Boston School tradition, and that is not surprising since among his greatest influences are the American Painters John Singer Sargeant, Edmund Tarbell, and Frank Benson, as well as the French painter Henri Fantin-Latour. Other major influences have been Diego Velasquez, Johannes Vermeer, Thomas Dewing, Maxfield Parrish, Joseph DeCamp, and so many others. A former member of the Guild of Boston Artists, Mr. Perrin paints in order to express his great love for the beauty seen all around, especially in his immediate environment. Dennis studied at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art with M. Dell Weller, who taught him the power of seeing and translating that vision into paint. He continues his studies exploring the subtleties of light through paint. Among his favorite subjects are the human figure, clothed and nude, flowers, still life, and the interior space, often populated with one or more figures. Though not as frequently seen in his work, Perrin is an avid plein air painter of the New England landscape.
