Treasurers from my studio
Submitted By Sachie Johns
The Fremont Art Association is pleased to announce its second quarter showcase featuring prominent watercolor artist and teacher, Janice Schafir. Her art is known for wonderful blend of color and whimsy and a sense of joy. Schafir began art career by taking lessons locally with the City of Fremont recreation program in drawing, color mixing, and watercolor painting. The spontaneity of watercolor attracted her, as her personality welcomes unplanned challenges in life; sometimes happy, sometimes sad, but never dull. She has continued as an impressionistic painter, excited by the unexpected effects of watercolor transparency. She also enjoys working with opacity and collage.
Schafir loves teaching, "I truly believe that we can create our own happiness- mine has been enriched because of my love for teaching and fascination with the new and unexpected. I found this spontaneity in painting transparent watercolor. I am always trying a new technique or style but realize from my experience that I must still follow the rules of composition and design." Paintings exhibited in the showcase incorporate many of these various techniques.
An artist reception will be held on Sunday, April 10 at the FAA Gallery with music by Jules Goldberg and light refreshments. To learn more about Jan Schafir, visit her website: www.jansartstudios.com
