Painting Birds: A Class for Teens

QACAC_Logo_small384256c8b9c7Painting Birds: A Class for Teens

Gouache paint, similar to watercolor, is modified to make it an opaque painting medium. Its usage dates back to the fourteenth century and brings a different depth and character than that of traditional watercolor paints. In a short class at the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council’s Centre for the Arts, students will explore the wonder of this early medium. Though few contemporary artists work with gouache, it is a perfect match for painting birds. The journey begins with information on avian anatomy as an aide to understanding their characteristics. Students will then learn a variety of painting techniques with an emphasis on painting birds.

Artist and instructor Ric Connhas been a student of nature and ornithology for much of his life. He has travelled extensively throughout the Eastern seaboard, across the country and beyond to observe, record and paint wildlife. He studied at the Corcoran College of Art and the Maryland Institute College of Art and teaches regularly to students of all ages in locations around the Mid-Atlantic.

The two-day class will be held on Tuesday, July 7 and 15 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The registration deadline is July 1. The cost is $55 for members of the Arts Council, $70 for non-members. Ages 13-16. Materials:registered students will receive a supplies list. Centre for the Arts classes are designed to renew existing artistic interests and develop new skills.

Dance the Winter Away at the Centre for the Arts

image003At the Centre for the Arts, ballroom dance will chase away the winter blahs thanks to dance instructor Amanda Showell Cook. Beginning Wednesday, January 8th the Centre offers Level 1 instruction in two dances, East Coast Swing at 7 pm. and Cha-Cha at 8 pm.

East Coast Swing is an easily learned way to enjoy social dancing to Swing music. It shares some aspects of the Lindy Hop with less overall movement and fewer timing variations. Danced to a wide range of tempos, the music is traditionally big band Swing from the golden era of Jazz. Based upon a quick three-step movement, the Cha-Cha is a fun, flirty dance that grew out of the Cuban Mambo. It consists of triple chasse steps (cha cha cha’s) and rock steps. Students will be taught the basic steps, rhythms and techniques of the dances and advance on existing skills. Singles and couples are welcome to these four-week courses. The cost is $50 for members of the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council or $55 for non-members. Advance registration is required by Jan 2.

A teacher since 1996, Showell has taught at some of the largest dance schools on the east coast. She has won numerous ballroom dance competition titles and trained with world class dancers such as Peter Eggleton and Charlotte Jorgensen.

Centre for the arts classes are designed to renew existing artistic interests, and to develop new skills. Registration materials are available at 206 South Commerce St. in Centreville, MD Tuesday-Friday from 9am to 5 pm., or by calling 410-758-2520, online, www.arts4u.info, or request via email at exhibit@arts4u.info.

Centre for the Arts Hosts “Elvis”

image003Centreville was rocking  as Johnny Seaton, a popular local performer, entertained a crowd of over 100 people at a benefit for Queen Anne’s County Centre for the Arts’ Building Fund. Guests arrived to find the auditorium transformed into a retro nightclub complete with café tables, subdued lighting, a dance floor area, and a dessert table fit for the King himself.

While Mr. Seaton is best known for his look-alike, sound-alike Elvis performances, his talents reach far beyond that. His songs and interaction with his audience are reminiscent of the night clubs of the sixties. His show brought back fond memories for many in the group and prompted many spontaneous sing-alongs.

The capacity crowd enjoyed the music and also had the opportunity to purchase works of art by Karen Cunningham, Gerry Czajkowski, and Stephanie Nadolski on display in the auditorium.

The evening was sponsored by Priceless Industries, Inc. and board member Sharon Dobson. Board Vice Chair Audrey Scott served as mistress of ceremonies. Proceeds benefit the Building Fund.

Renowned Performer Johnny Seaton Coming to Centreville

~Nationally Recognized Singer to Offer Tribute To Icons of American Vocal Music

Queen Anne’s County’s Centre for the Arts is offering a rare opportunity to spend the evening of Friday, 22 November, with nationally recognized performer Johnny Seaton singing in tribute to some of America’s best known icons of American vocal music.

His uncanny resemblance to “The King”, Elvis Presley, has stopped many in their tracks time and again, but the scope of his vocal talents have enabled Seaton to avoid the trap of typecasting. He has had the privilege to perform with many renowned entertainers such as Roseanne Cash, Fats Domino, The Jordanaires, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, … the list goes on.

As Pharaoh in the original cast of Tim Rice’s and Andrew Lloyd Weber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, starring Donny Osmond, Seaton received outstanding reviews and praise for adding that special magic that helped make that show the incredible success it became.

With the many guest appearances on national TV – “CBS Early Show”, “Good Morning America” and “The Today Show”, “Entertainment Tonight”, “The Regis and Kathy Lee Show”, and “Showbiz Today” – Seaton has been welcomed into the homes of families across the country. Beyond venues in major U.S. cities such as Chicago, Nashville, New York, and Las Vegas, Seaton has performed overseas in Amsterdam, Moscow, Tokyo, and elsewhere.

Tiny Centreville, Maryland, is fortunate to have this singular entertainer perform in a single-night concert to support much needed renovation of the Centre for the Arts building.

Prominent Regional Artists to Exhibit At QAC Centre for the Arts

image003~Fine Art and Pottery on Sale Will Enhance County Centre’s Building Fund

A new exhibit of paintings and pottery by three accomplished eastern Maryland artisans opens on Friday, 8 November and running through 30 November at Queen Anne’s County’s Centre for the Arts, 206 S. Commerce Street, Centreville. Works on show are for sale and partial proceeds will benefit the Centre’s Building Fund.

Grasonville resident Karen Cunningham calls pottery her “passion”. She studied both wheel and hand-building techniques for three years at the Academy of Art Museum in Easton, Maryland, and took courses in Colorado where she was particularly influenced by a renowned potter from Mexico, Juan Quezada.

“While I enjoy wheel work and producing functional dishes, I especially treasure my hand-built pots, many built using the coil method … a very labor intensive process.” Occasionally, Ms. Cunningham will put a piece into her fireplace “which produces smoky and colored highlights.”

Ms. Cunningham is an active member of Easton’s “All Fired Up” and the Clay Guild of the Eastern Shore as well as the Academy of Art Museum and the QAC Centre of the Arts.

Native Washingtonian Geraldine K. Czajkowski, today another Grasonville resident, began painting early, studying under landscape and portrait artist, Dan Mistrik, in Bethesda, Maryland. A BFA in oil painting and drawing from Ohio University led to a 26-year care in patent illustration and art direction, from which she is now retired. www.gcartworks.com

Czajkowski is decidedly active in her métier. She is a Signature member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society and a member of Working Artists Forum in Easton, Maryland. She exhibits regularly throughout the mid-Atlantic and donates time and talent to such highly-regarded benevolent events such as Saks Fifth Avenue’s Tsunami Benefit for Save the Children in Virginia and the National Museum for Women in the Arts auction in Washington, D.C.

Recent works by Stephanie Nadolski integrate handmade papers and found objects with paintings and monotypes. Her work is exhibited primarily as one-person shows, and national and regional exhibitions throughout the United States.

“I work intuitively in painting, printmaking, and mixed media,” says Nadolski, “responding to what unfolds with the interaction of inks, pigments, and surfaces shaped by influences of a time and place, the essence of an experience. Fascination for the unpredictable has led to work with monotypes and collagraphs, giving up a degree of control for the element of surprise with the transfer of ink from plate to paper. I paint as an expression of self, for the challenge and joy of it, but knowing visual art must be seen to be heard, my greatest satisfaction comes when it communicates with you. Then you, too, become a participant in the conversation with art.”

Nadolski’s professional affiliations include the Baltimore Watercolor Society and National Collage Society, the Colored Pencil Society of America and Maryland Printmakers. She lives and works in Shady Side, Maryland. www.stephanienadolski.com

Scarecrows To Appear As New Participants in Centreville Day

~Families and Local Businesses Encouraged to Create, Display Icons of Americana

Queen Anne’s County’s Centre for the Arts is offering cash prizes for the most original, innovative, artistic scarecrows created as part of the third annual Centreville Day, Saturday, 02 November. Local residents and businesses are encouraged to call on their ingenuity and imagination to craft a scarecrow that can be affixed safely outside their home, business, or elsewhere – subject to approval – around downtown Centreville.

Scarecrow figures need follow no particular theme, so creativity is bound only by common sense and good taste. So that they may be seen from a distance, five to seven feet for the figures is the suggested height, and materials used should be able to withstand at least a few days of possible inclement weather. Scarecrows must be on display by Sunday, 27 October.

Full guidelines and regulations are available on the Centre for the Arts’ website, arts4u@arts4u.info . For additional information, call 410 758 2520.

Winners will be announced and prizes awarded over the course of Centreville Day, 2 November, scheduled for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
