We have a great retreat designed especially for visual artists no matter where you are in your artistic journey. Outstanding and talented artists are ready to share their expertise: Jennifer Bowman, acrylic; Karen Mattson, watercolor; Earl Rider, plein air oil.

Jennifer Bowman

Jennifer, an internationally renowned artist, will conduct a 2-day acrylic workshop. She is a master at helping artists understand light and shadow which is vital to a successful painting. She spent two years traveling the west coast in a sail boat studying the quality of light at different latitudes. Jennifer has an impressive resume which includes a wide variety of awards. She is represented by over 180 galleries worldwide. To see  more of her work visit her web site: www.jenniferbowman.com

 

Karen Mattson

 

Karen, a long-time Alaskan, is best known for her Alaskan scenes and floral paintings. Her work is  influenced by her experience  as a master gardener. She is a signature member of the Alaska Watercolor Society and one of the original founders of the Valley Fine Arts Association. She has received numerous  awards. Karen’s painting, ‘Bald Eagle’, was selected as one of the 50 finalists from the state of Alaska  in the coveted Paint America competition. Karen’s work can be seenat: www.fineartamerica.com/artists/karen+ mattson

 

 

Earl Rider

 

Earl, an accomplished self taught plein air painter, prefers working in oil. He is an award winning artist who won first place at the Arctic Rose Art Center and Gallery annual Raven Show. Earl is a member of Anchorage Plein Air Painters, Alaska  Artists Guild and V.F.A.A. His informative demonstrations have been a favorite with Valley Fine Arts Association members. We are excited that he is once again sharing his expertise with us.
