OUTSIDE : Seeing Spots with Mary Giammarino

October 8th, 9th, and 10th | Friday-Sunday 9am-12pm | 3 sessions | $230 for members, $250 for non members

Spots, or masses, that is what you see when you squint at the thing you are trying to paint . We squint to see the big masses . We look at their differences. Are they lighter or darker? Are they warm or cool? Is this sky mass warmer than this water mass? Is it darker or lighter? This is seeing spots!

This weekend Plein Air Painting class is designed to help you capture what you see while working on techniques and painting from life.

Masks will be required for all indoor, outdoor and plein air workshops at PAAM, regardless of vaccination status.

Mary Giammarino’s devotion to light and color is evident in her paintings. She has always been drawn to the beauty of nature and plein air painting and creating art directly from nature. Giammarino studied fine art in college. She discovered the book “Hawthorne on Painting” and found her home at the Cape Cod School of Art in Provincetown, MA. While she is influenced by the impressionist palette, her work is less idealized and more contemporary by design. Her plein air paintings reflect her passion and devotion to capturing the exquisite drama of nature’s fleeting moods. Giammarino continues to paint plein air and carries on the tradition by teaching painting classes on Cape Cod, in Vermont and on trips to Italy. She is represented at Four Eleven Gallery in Provincetown and DaVallia in Chester, Vermont. She has had many solo exhibitions. Her work can be found in many private collections in the US and Europe.
