“Youthful Visions II”, an exhibit of the best of the Martinsburg Boys and Girls Club photography competition opened at the Berkeley Art Works with a reception at the gallery Friday evening. There was a great turnout of the young artists/photographers, parents and friends.

Seeing their framed prints hanging on the wall in a gallery was exciting for these young artists and everyone was impressed with the quality and creativity in the images.

The photos were scored by a panel of eight judges to select the images that will represent Martinsburg and Berkeley County in regional and national competitions.

The exhibit will be on display through Sunday, August 31. The Berkeley Art Works is located at 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg. Gallery hours are Thursday 11-5, Friday 11-8, Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 12-3.

Judith Becker will be doing a live demo of my pastel painting techniques on Friday, August 22nd from 11 am to 4 pm at the Berkeley Art Works in downtown Martinburg.  Judith’s subject will be botanicals, most likely Stargazer Lilies.  If you are curious about what is involved with painting with pastels, you are invited to visit Judith at the gallery at that time.  We have a 4 week class in pastels coming up in September, and this might be a good way for you to see if you are interested. She will be available to discuss the process, answer questions  and address any other class related questions that come up.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Thursday 12-5, Friday 12-8, Saturday 12-5, and Sunday 12-3.

 The Signature member holds the highest status, and has achieved a superior level of skill in painting with watercolors. Signature Members of WVWS have risen up through the ranks of the Society through rigorous jurying, and review of their work and are judged to have mastered the composition, techniques of the medium. The process can take six years or more and requires many submissions of artwork for juried exhibits. The last exhibit of the work of these top level artists in the Eastern Panhandle was held in 2011 in Berkeley Springs.
The West Virginia Watercolor Society was established in 1984 to promote and insure the high standards of the art of watercolor painting in the state of West Virginia, to guide and assist the student and aspiring watercolor artist in West Virginia, and to encourage within the general public the advancement and understanding of the broad scope of watercolor painting.

In conjunction with the exhibit, the Berkeley Arts Council will also present a three-day watercolor workshop by artist and instructor Lynn Ferris, AWS, NWS, at the Berkeley Art Works on September 15-17, 2014, from 9am to 4:30pm each day. The workshop will focus capturing light in painting. Good use of light and shadow can change a painting from ordinary to extraordinary. Using a limited palette of mainly transparent paint, students will learn to design with light, recognize light sources and the shadows they create, add drama and luminosity. Lynn provides handouts, reference materials and lots of personal attention. The cost is $275 and space is limited.
