Collage Demonstration at Olive Hyde
Submitted By Diane Leys
San Martin artist Jaya King is presenting a "Collage Technique" demonstration at Olive Hyde Art Center on Wednesday, September 25.
As a professional artist for 10 years, King has shown her work throughout the Bay Area. At the age of 21 she had a one-woman show at the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity at Stanford University. In addition, King's work is in the permanent collection at the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara. In 2010, she was selected to be published in the annual "Splash: The Best of Watercolor." Currently, she is represented by Nieto Fine Art in San Francisco.
Using gouache on scrap lumber that has been heavily worn and blemished by weather and time, King has become known for her paintings of expressive figures and forgotten buildings of America's past. Recently she has begun to explore more colorful, lighthearted painting. Bold acrylic colors and decorative collage techniques on canvas are to King "a breath of fresh air."
At Olive Hyde, King plans to demonstrate the use of decorative collage papers and acrylic paint to create fun and whimsical pieces of art. She will be describing process, tools, composition, and where to find local supplies.
Sponsored by the Olive Hyde Art Guild, there will be no charge to participants. Refreshments will be provided.
