Filed under: Art Shows on July 18, 2010 6:02 pm

We will be communicating by e-mail for much of our organization of the up-coming Art Exhibit @ the Rose Shenson (which is on the grounds of the Triton Museum, 1505 Warburton Avenue in Santa Clara)

1. The important dates: drop = 8-28-10 * 11:15-12:30, show opens = 9-4-10 * 12:00-4:00 PM, show closes & pick-up 10-3-10.

2. We will also have an Artists’ Reception on Saturday, September 11, 2010 from 1:30-3:30. (Each Artists is responsible for a plated finger food [sweet or savory] to be served during the reception.) That last day we will be open from 12-4 just like the other Saturdays & Sundays of September, but you need to retrieve your paintings during the last twenty minutes.

3. Each Artist is expected to serve as a gallery monitor along with one other Artist. The dates to be covered are all open; so first responder gets their choice. We will be covering each Saturday & Sunday of September plus our final date Sunday, October 3, 2010. You will open the gallery @ noon & close @ 4:00 PM.

4. Along with your choice of monitor date, I need the following information about each of your entries: TITLE, MEDIUM, FRAMED SIZE, PRICE & PHONE # to appear on the ID card for the wall. Deadline for this information is August 15, 2010.

5. I know several of you are first time participants & may need to have questions answered; so feel free to either e-mail or phone me, because we will not be meeting as a group until after our drop.

Ferenc Besze will demonstrate impressionist watercolors at the July 17, 2010 meeting

Filed under: Meetings on July 13, 2010 6:38 pm

Our July 17th meeting is one not to be missed! Ferenc Besze, an impressionist watercolorist, will be demonstrating (see his work at www.besze.com).

Ferenc Besze (FAIR-ense BEH-seh) was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary. His love for art surfaced early in his childhood, when Ferenc filled all his textbooks with drawings to the frustration of his teachers, and parents. Ferenc’s passion continues until this day.

Today, Ferenc transfers his passion to his students by teaching watercolour, which is his primary medium.

This talented, award-winning watercolourist prefers to express himself in an impressionistic style, focusing on the essence of the subject, rather than dwelling on details. He likes all subject matter equally, such as a peaceful landscape or a busy city scene.

He accomplishes his unique wide range of colour with a surprisingly limited palette, and maintains economy of design. His free-flowing spontaneous style brings out the beautiful characteristics of watercolour. His technique is influenced significantly by traditional as well as impressionist masters.

Watching Ferenc paint, the viewer is deceived by the effortless brush handling, which makes it look so easy. However, if someone has tried watercolour would know that is not the case. Quite the opposite.

His paintings are in private collections in the United States, and in Europe. Ferenc has also exhibited locally, nationally and internationally. Ferenc’s paintings have also won numerous awards. His work was featured in the millennium issue of the International Artists Magazine, Master Painters of the World section.

Ferenc is a signature member of the Society of Western Artists, and an active supporter of different fundraisers, which benefit humanitarian causes.

DATE: July 17th, 2010
TIME: 1:00 PM.
PLACE: Community Room, Campbell Library, 77 N. Harrison, Campbell, CA
