Oil! It has been the unparalleled master medium of our time and has roots that go back centuries. Other modern mediums of artistic expression have come to the field of painting but none has knocked oil off its lofty perch as the unrivaled Rolls-Royce of artistic expression.
Water! The compound of plenty on planet Earth has also found a home as one of the most wonderfully simple mediums for paint pigment. Its fast-drying nature allows the artist a quick and easy means for expression both in the field and back at the studio. It can be used for fast color studies, or well-rendered final masterpieces.
These two classic mediums may be incompatible in a single piece of art, but together they have helped artists forge their ideas into concepts and then final works. Long-drying and perfect for time stretched studio sessions, oil is the discerning artist?s medium of choice. Fast-drying and excellent for almost instant gratification, water is there to help you get that concept trapped in your head quickly onto the paper. Oil and water may not mix, but they go hand-in-hand in the world of art, like opposite sides of the same coin.
UAG presents Slick, works in oil and watercolor, with featured artists Rebecca Schoonmaker and Tommy Watkins, and Barbara Shema's "Altered Landscapes" in the sideroom.
