Long Beach Art Mural

We have just reicvied this email.

I was wondering if you knew of anyone who would be willing to do a mural for free down in Long Beach. There is this hideous wall at our dead end and I wasn't sure if anyone would be willing to take it on as a community service project of some sort. The wall belongs to Executive Towers but they don't do anything with it... some bricks are broken... it looks horrible and its right next to our beach entrance so it's definitely somewhere it would be noticed. I would think it should be something ocean like or beachy... its a fairly long wall if it was continued all the way down to the beach. Anyway... I thought it would look nice and be an interesting project. Please let me know if you have any idea of who would be interested and I would be willing to help get permission from the buildings down here :)

Clay Convergence
Susan Kadish and Christopher Delloiacono, both Long Island-based artists specializing in three-dimensional representations, will be displaying their recent works at the Art League of Long Island, from January 15 – 30, 2011.

Kadish’s works, strongly influenced by ancient Asian materials and methods to create unique clay forms and vessels, as well as an array of her figurative Buddha sculptures, are an expression of her artistically diverse abilities. Delloiacono’s current body of work uses the ceramic wheel as a tool of both construction and deconstruction. His goals are to demonstrate both his intuitive abilities with the medium and convey a powerful, conceptual perspective.

The combination of both Mrs. Kadish’s representational and figurative work and Mr. Delloiacono’s conceptual and abstract work exhibits the true beauty of Clay Convergence.

Proceeds from the sale of Mrs. Kadish’s work will be donated for scholarships for children with learning disabilities through the Art League of Long Island. Proceeds from the sale of Mr. Delloiacono’s work, especially created for this event, will be donated to United Cerebral Palsy of Nassau County.

Watercolor Wednesday!

20% OFF M. Graham Watercolors - M. Graham has created a watercolor with exceptional amounts of pigment in an old fashioned binding medium of pure gum arabic and natural blackberry honey. The result is watercolor of extraordinary strength that is easily diluted for smooth, controlled washes and deeper "darks". Alive with strength and intensity, watercolor made with honey absorbs moisture from the air, preventing hardening on the palette or in the tube.

Fripit in the News
Publication: The East Hampton Press & The Southampton Press
by Pat Rogers

"Mixing fun with a serious purpose was the idea behind the creation of the Hamptons Art website, www.fripit.com. Website administrator Ben McHugh, who enjoys the process of setting up websites, started Fripit three years ago when artist friends began asking him to design sites for them. In order to avoid being swamped with lots of favors for friends, Mr. McHugh said he’d make one website and post whatever anyone gave him there.

At first, Fripit was the cyberspace home for artists without websites, people who felt thwarted by technology that seemed difficult to master. Now most of Fripit’s artists have their own websites but still want to be part of a website group."

Using Color to Express Your Creativity
Colors have an amazing impact on our lives. From the red of our stop signs and traffic lights, to the ever important green of a dollar bill, color is integrated into every facet of our daily adventures. No where is this more clear, than in our art and in our artistic creativity.
How to make your own oil paints
How to make your own oil paintsOil paints are made basically by mixing cold-pressed Linsed oil with pigment or color until a smooth buttery paint is produced. When the oil paint is used and applied to a surface the oil oxidizes or absorbs air and then forms a solid film that binds the pigment to the surface of the painting.
