Demonstrator - Paul Cloutier (Abstract Art)

Paul is an "outsider" artist focusing primarily on abstract art. He's been a member of the Framingham Artists' Guild for four years and his greatest inspiration is color. He's found that creating works that are brightly colored or have texture reminds him of the time when he first learned abstract art. Art has given purpose to Paul's life. His everyday focus is trying to create something that he is proud of whether it be a simple abstract paper drawing to a large piece that takes him weeks to finish. 

Tuesday, October 17, 2017 - Demonstration @ 7 p.m.
Demonstrator - Cate Kashem - Landscapes

Cate Hunter Kashem was born in Boston, MA into an artistic family. In high school she started painting landscapes with her father, renowned still life painter Robert Douglas Hunter and with Robert J. Cormier, both students of R.H. Gammell. She also studied academic drawing with Daniel Levin at the New School of Classical Art, who received his training from Daniel Graves at the Florence Academy.

She does not paint from photographs because she prefers to be inspired directly by nature. She begins all her landscapes on location (even during cold New England winters!) and then completes them in her studio in Cambridge, MA. Cate is a member of the Cambridge Art Association and the Cape Cod Art Association, where she was the 2009 artist-in-resident. In the words of one of her favorite authors, Marcel Proust, "the real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."

Wednesday, November 15, 2017 - Demonstration @ 7 p.m.
Demonstrator - Mai Mai Pietrowski - Contrasts of Light in Nature

The focus of Mai Mai's art is to provide an illustration of nature that empowers us to lift our spirits with expressions of hope and beauty. Her painting style emphasizes the color of light by the contrasts between bright colors and neutrals and shadow and light. She is a colorist who enjoys playing with the juxtaposition of patterns and shapes . Mai Mai is inspired by the contrasts of light in nature - flowers and leaves, sunrises and sunsets, oceans and clouds and mountains and skies.

She is a member of the CHROMA Art Group and a resident artist at Studio 7 at 162 Howard Street  in Framingham, MA. Mai Mai has worked with acclaimed artist Margaret Gerding. She holds a Master's of Business Administration degree from Babson College in Wellesley, MA.

Her work has been exhibited at the Prince Street Gallery in New York City, Liberty Hotel in Boston, Provincetown Art Museum, Zullo Gallery, Massachusetts- Audubon Society, Fountain Street Studios in Framingham, MA, the Danforth Museum, Framingham, MA and the Post Road Gallery.
