Not long ago I posted about taking a class in painting with gouache, an opaque watercolor, at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine arts. You may remember from those posts that there was a final still life I was working on that I never got to finish in class. Before we left, our instructor encouraged us to enter a piece from what we had worked on in the PAFA Continuing Education Programs Annual Student Exhibition over the summer. At the time I wasn't sure if I wanted to try to bother finishing the piece, especially since I would only have pictures to work on rather than the actual still life. I did, however, want to continue practicing with the medium so eventually I did wind up finishing the piece after all.
And then I thought, what the heck, I'll enter the show. My piece was accepted and is now hanging in the Anne Bryan Gallery, lower level in the Samuel M.V. Hamilton Building with the rest of the student work from June 20 – July 18, 2019. The hours are Tuesday–Friday: 10 AM–5 PM, closed Mondays. If you are in the city and around that area this week, feel free to pop in and take a look! There are lots of great works by many talented artists.
