Did you know  

You never know where you will see the artist from the Loft. This month our very own Maureen Seltzer was featured on gel press webpage and face book page. I also have it on good authority that she will be demoing at Art of the Carolina's on Nov as well as having her art on display in Gel presses booth. Below is a link to her video and a few words on how she feels about the process she uses to craft her work. 

"The tactility of the printing on the papers and the tearing of them become almost “Zen”- like, resting my mind into a place of more creativity." - Maureen Seltzer's Art Studio / Maureen Seltzer.…/ for supply lists and detail shots of her amazing art.

Paint with the Artists at the Loft  on Sept 21th

Calling All Creative People! Are you looking to network with other creative people or looking for a place to work on that project or get motivated to start the one that is stuck in your head? Look No Further!

The Artist Loft & Gallery is going to start a drop in art night in May and it will run the third Thursday of every month from 6pm – 9pm. So grab a coffee or bring a bottle of wine. We will provide the cups and the tables will be covered. Also the artists from The Loft will be on hand to answer questions like do you think this is too green. You know we all need another set of eyes to take a look sometimes. All we ask is you let us know if you can make it so we can have the tables set up and donate $5.00 in order help us cover the cost. You can e-mail with a yes I’m in. So you say I don’t paint but I love to make crafts or knit. No problem. Come join the party. Space will be limited to the first 20 that say yes.

Big thank you

The Artist Loft would like to thank all the the kids and chaperones from Central Children's home that came to the Loft last month. Thanks to the money we raised in December from our ornaments that we make, the Loft was able to give the kids a free art lesson complete with ice cream and pizza. 

The Artist loft loves to be able to give back to our community so we will have more calls for art and ways to donate coming up soon.

Encaustic workshop

Are you fascinated with wax painting but are not sure how to get started? Are you looking for ways to add more depth to your art work?
Then join resident artist Marcia Streithorst as she teaches you how use wax to enhance your drawing and photographs. We will build up layers of wax so you can add texture and depth to your work. We will cover "Dry brushing" a technique used to add texture to a wax painting,  how to incorporate photography and drawings into encaustic. So if you have any photographs or papers you would like to use in you painting please feel free to bring them. I will have some goodies for everyone to share so no worries if you do not. This class is great for students who have some experience with encaustic and beginners.   
All supplies will be included and students will walk away with at least one completed 6x6.
