Ginnie Conaway Watercolor Workshop
September 18- 19, 2015
“Change Up Your Floral Paintings”
Explore three different ways to create floral masterpieces with Ginny Conaway.
Day 1, morning – Being Negative is good.
Planning a negative painting requires a totally different mindset. Learn to think in values, from the foreground to the background, while working with color harmonies.
Day 1, afternoon – Think outside the box.
Loosen up while combining wet-into-wet with pen and ink. Play with color, find shapes, and define the flowers.
Day 2, all day – Paint the drama!
Use value, color and cropping to create dramatic, bold florals.
Ginnie grew up in Maryland’s farming country.Being an avid gardener has given her an appreciation of the land, which provides much of her inspiration. Whether capturing the fleeting beauty of a flower or the personality of a loved one, her artwork serves to portray a moment in time and place.
Ginnie resides in Winston Salem, NC. She is currently on the board of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina. She has taught at Forsyth Technical Community College for the past ten years.

OPEN CALL FOR ORIGINAL CLAUDE HOWELL ARTWORK FOR EXHIBITION
“We know there is a great deal of Claude’s artwork that may have not been seen by the public in years, if ever. Though he kept meticulous logs of his life and work, there is a gap between when he made an entry in his logs and today. We are taking this opportunity to try to close that gap by asking collectors of Claude Howell’s work, to bring select, ready-to-hang pieces from their collection and showcasing them for two days, July 18-19 at the Cameron Art Museum.”
The museum will take the artwork, record the ownership information or provenance, take a photo and then hang the artwork in the reception hall. The gathered information will be used to create a fresh database of Howell’s work for future tracking. For information about this upcoming exhibition contact Jayme Bednarczyk at 910-395-5999 ext. 1010.
