We meet at the James Lorah Auditorium on the first Thursday of the month at 7:30pm. The meetings are free and open to all.

Our speaker for the month of February is Jill Rupinski. She will be talking about The Painter's Challenge of Composing with Color.

The discerning painter recognizes the complexity of color in building a sound painting and composition. Through examining various European paintings and movements this talk will bring together the history of pigment availability, the characteristics of pigment, the search for color order, and the development of principles that we adhere to today in composing with color. Contemporary artists can draw from the wealth of the past and apply learned knowledge in forming their own body of work.

Jill Rupinski is Chairperson of the Fine Arts Department and Professor of Painting and Drawing in the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) Degree Program at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA). Jill has taught classes and workshops and served as a juror at numerous art centers, galleries, and museum programs throughout eastern Pennsylvania and the greater Philadelphia region.

She is known for her surreal and inventive landscape imagery, working with abstract yet observed nature forms. Her work has taken a narrative direction, with inspiration drawn from current topics and personal experience.
