Art show at Mission Coffee
Submitted By JanÕs Art Studios
Jan Schafir, the owner of JanÕs Art Studios is the schedule coordinator of the art work rotation at Mission Coffees in Fremont. The art community is very grateful for this opportunity to display their art work on a monthly basis. Jan usually displays her own work at the coffee shop during the month of February each year. This year she asked her colleagues who paint and teach with her at the art studio to display their works along with hers.
Therese Ely, Ann-Marie Haley and Dmitry Grudsky have been members of the studio since its inception in 1986. They all teach a few classes each week to supplement their rental and utility costs. There are classes for children from ages 5 - 18, as well as adults of any age. The classes are a mixture of oils, watercolors, acrylics, pastels and mixed media. Each teacher has their own specialty.
Each artist also has their own favorite medium in which to paint. JanÕs first love is watercolor, and she has been painting in this medium since the mid 1960s. She has broadened her skills in collage and other forms of mixed media. There will be samples of these in the show.
Therese, a now devoted oil painter, used to paint in watercolors, but changed to oils several years ago. Ann-Marie also is a watercolorist and teaches young children from ages 5 Ð 8 and they love her.
Dmitry, well known in the Bay Area as a teacher of mosaics, paints well in most any medium and most probably will displaying watercolors in this show.
We invite everyone to come to Mission Coffee during the month of February. There will be a reception to meet the artists on Sunday Feb. 9 with refreshments and music provided by Jules Goldberg at the keyboard.
