Alana Knuff Presents: Why Do I Like That Painting?
The Artists League will host an evening presentation by artist, Alana Knuff, titled “Why Do I Like That Painting?” Her presentation will focus on what collectors, artists, and the public ought to know when looking at a painting before purchasing. Choices are influenced by the individual’s knowledge of the art movements and styles; the knowledge of the underpinnings of the art work as shown by the artist’s usage and comprehension of composition, drawing, color, values and brushwork. Selections are also influenced by the relative value of the artist’s work. The program will include many pieces of art work that Alana will discuss in relation to the above.
Alana is a professional artist whose works include portraits, figurative, and marine subjects. She was one of the low country artists exhibiting at the Campbell House this past October. Alana is a Signature Member of the American Society of Marine Artists, member of the Portrait Society of America, Oil Painters of America, and American Impressionist Society. Locally, she is a member of the Arts Council of Moore County.
Her presentation and discussion will be held Thursday, January 20, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm at the Artists League, 129 Exchange Street, Aberdeen. The cost is $20 per person, including wine and snacks. Please make your reservation by Monday, January 17, by calling the Artist League office at 910-944-3979. There is limited capacity so make your reservation early.
