ART EXHIBIT: IN THE THICK OF IT LILIAN GARCIA-ROIG @ TCC Fine Art Gallery
Oct 12 @ 12:30 pm – Dec 14 @ 4:30 pm

FSU professor, Lilian Garcia-Roig, is a nationally recognized artist who has been the recipient of numerous major awards and fellowships. “My formal painting concerns have led me to use the conservative landscape as my subject and traditional plein-air painting as my process, in my attempts to reconcile the abstract nature of painting with its representational role. From a distance, I draw the viewer into what is first perceived as a dense but conventional space. Up close, however, the images break down; the lush, gestural paint marks, squeezed-out paint patches and areas of raw canvas help, instead, to reinforce the 2-D character of abstract painting as both an activity and an end-product.” – Lilian Garcia-Roig
Exhibit open October 12 through December 14.
Please visit the Gallery from 12:30 – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Gallery is closed during college holidays. Admission is free.

Masters in the Making Jr. @ LeMoyne Art Education
Dec 15 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Masters in the Making Jr. @ LeMoyne Art Education | Starke | Florida | United States

Students ages 6-12 now have the opportunity to try and recreate these masterworks. Instructor Kylie Nerney will give a brief talk about the artist and how they approached the canvas. Then students will be led as they experience recreating these famous works in a similar manner. Each session will meet from 6:00-8:30 p.m. giving students enough time to complete their very own masterpiece, and give parents enough time for a night out! In December, we’ll create Paul Cezanne’s “L’Estaque, Melting Snow” (1871).

Each art adventure is $25 for LeMoyne Members and $35 for Non-Members. The price of the workshop includes all materials (canvas, paint, brushes, etc.). Students are encouraged to bring a snack and drink with them – no food will be provided but water and lemonade will be available. Art adventures are available for private parties and special groups upon request. Register early as space is limited to 20 seats per month (minimum of ten people required).
