Celebrity artist comes to Niles
Submitted By Sachie Johns
The Fremont Art Association is pleased to announce celebrity artist Guy Magallanes as its guest artist for February. On Wednesday, February 2, Magallanes will present exquisite works of watercolor and demonstrate his fascinating technique.
You may recognize him as one of the artists from "Art2Art" on KCSM at 9 a.m. on Saturdays. Magallanes co-hosts this watercolor instruction show with Joyce Faulkner.
Magallanes' focus on painting nature scenes such as landscapes, animals, or floral images was influenced by his grandmother; heightened exaggeration for drama's sake stems from her influence. As a watercolorist, the artist experiments with different techniques to paint nature images. He says, "Hyper-realism is how I classify my style of painting, enhancing abstract shapes with exaggerated color which fit together in a myriad of ways to make a finished image."
Join us as Magallanes paints, from light to dark, one color at a time, right here in Niles. For details, call the gallery at (510) 792-0905 or visit www.FremontArtAssociation.org.
