Expressions in Light and Color
Submitted By Sachie Johns
The Fremont Art Association is pleased to present its first showcase of the year featuring the works of Carol Pulliam and Mary Sullivan, oil and acrylic artists with contrasting styles, starting Friday, February 10 through Sunday, February 26 at the Fremont Art Centre. The centre is open Wednesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. A variety of new works from additional member artists will compliment the gallery's first quarter offerings.
Pulliam is a self-taught acrylic painter who loves bright pure color. She uses a palette knife and simple palette of only the three primary colors plus white. Pulliam works mostly using acrylic but also likes to work with charcoal, pastels, and watercolor. Having a passion for pure, bright color, the artist uses color to evoke emotions or set a mood to the extreme. She is always seeking to create compositions with interesting negative space with an accent on light and dark values.
Sullivan is an oil painter doing much of her painting in her lovely garden and in her studio in Fremont. She expresses herself using light and color through the medium of oil on hard board, believing that color value is the most important aspect of a painting - it is what brings her paintings to life. She encourages anyone who has even the slightest interest in painting not to delay - just pick up a brush and get started on a very enjoyable and exciting experience!
A reception honoring these two very talented artists will be held on Sunday, February 12 from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the FAA Centre. For details, call (510) 702-0905 or visit www.FremontArtAssociation.org.
