Weekend of Creativity

The weekend after Fathers Day, June 23 and 24, let it be a weekend of celebration of creativity. Charles Wildbank will be instructing class on the tricks of painting a still life of wet cherries, step by step inside his studio. Price of instruction is $75 for 2 hours of intensive painting which includes a canvas and use of paints. Class instruction will be followed by an open studio tour open to public free from noon to 6 pm on both days.

Commencing the tour in the afternoon, at the main entrance, one is greeted by a massive Golden Wave painting, awash with abstract references to the highly decorative forms of Gustav Klimt. Encrusted with gold leaf, it floats colonies of geometric shapes, a looming tsunami in the making.

Nearby stands Luvin’ Wave resonating in its sensuously cosmic design, a luminous red wave teeming with yin yang summoning the dualities of the male and female, water and fire, chaos and calm.

Onlooking the surrounding visual poetry of nature stand these towering portraits in the open loft overhead, capturing the very subjects in the artist’s life, contemporary folk, children and grownups alike. In the next room, a bedroom, is a collection of sleeping portraits a fitting cure all for insomniacs.

In the next salon, reserved for dining, the walls have that effect of sweet bombardment of delectable desserts painted to whet one’s appetites:  ice cream, cake, petit four cakes swarming with picnic ants…

The house tour is followed by a glimpse into his adjacent studio a short step down and facing the Moon Garden outside the glass doors. There will be a display of small prints and giclees for the browsing.
