Distinguished Artist Series

Please Zoom with us for Harry Boardman, artist and gallery owner presenting “So Much to Paint, So Little Time.”

Thursday, January 21 at 7:00 p.m.

Welcome to a new year and hopefully a better year ahead!

We welcome Harry Boardman, an artist and gallery owner of Exhibit B Gallery in Souderton, Pa. He lives and works in a former cigar factory with his wife Heather, a glass and jewelry artist, and his dog. They renovated the building from a rough dirty shell and transformed it into a warm inviting space and filled it with art.


Most of Harry’s work is done in oil pastels: messy, rich, and a unique blend of drawing & painting. He also paints in oils and draws in ink. Oil pastels are a perfect choice for him, as they are like a lush, waxy crayon allowing him to create art that looks and feels like a painting, but is applied like a drawing. Many people have heard of oil pastels but may not know how they are used to create a finish. He creates art that includes skies, trees, rolling fields, barns, and industrial sites. Harry likes to focus on the everyday scene that might go over-looked, but is totally worth acknowledging as a painting.

This presentation will include a discussion of his technique, a look at some of his paintings, and a demonstration. The program will end with a virtual tour of his studio and gallery, in the 1901 cigar factory. Q&A will conclude his presentation. To learn more about Harry, visit his web site, www.harryboardman.com

NOTE: Participants will be muted during the presentation, but the speaker may take selected questions from the audience after the presentation, as time allows.

Members Online Art Exhibition coming March 2021

Our exhibition committee is planning an online exhibition this year. Please renew your membership by March to be included. In many ways, our world got a lot bigger in 2020. As museums and art centers shut down, an explosion of online viewing rooms made the arts accessible to more people than ever. Although we will miss being together in person, in the Mill, we recognized that something exciting is happening, and that we can be a part of it. By embracing technology and displaying the Exhibition online, we will be able to reach a larger, broader and more diverse audience. More information to come in the next Enews.
