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.
