Artist Tony Zatzick to Give Oil and Watercolor Demonstration in the Avalon Gallery
Buddhist artists in western Afghanistan are credited with creating the first oil paintings sometime between the fifth and tenth centuries, while the roots of watercolor painting are said to extend back to the cave paintings of Paleolithic Europe. Once again, Plein Air Easton welcomes artist Tony Zatzick who will offer fun and informative demonstrations of these two influential art forms in the Avalon Theatre and just added an acrylic demo to the schedule.
The Local Color Art Show and Competition, sponsored by the Working Artists Forum, will be held Friday, July 15th - Sunday, July 17th, in the Crystal Ballroom of the Tidewater Inn in Easton.
