Local artists will have the rare opportunity to paint with and learn from Geoff Mowery, listed in the “500 Best Contemporary Artists in North America”. A graduate of the Choinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, Mowery paintings grace the halls of the Cleveland Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum of Modern Art, to name a few.
An all day plein air class with Mowery, sponsored by the Port Clinton Artists’ Club, will be held at Lakeview Park on Thursday, May 15, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. The rain date is Friday, May 16. Mowery paints primarily in egg tempera and oil, but artists are invited to bring whatever medium they prefer. The class is open to the public and is $45.
