Join the J. Petter Galleries for a meet & greet and demonstration with artists Ann Feldman & Steve Griggs.
Born and raised in New Orleans, Ann Feldman is a painter and art instructor who has lived much of her life in Barrington, Illinois. Painting in an impressionistic style with subjects that depict calm, Ann’s hushed backgrounds play with the abstract and the painting's primary subject depicts realism. This sharp contrast between soft and crisp is uniquely created. Her treatment of shadows helps to blend the realism with the abstract. Many of Ann’s pieces are painted in a loose style where her brush strokes are blended with very thick paint applied with palette knives to achieve an exciting, light-filled contrast.
Watercolor painter Steve Griggs' earliest influences and inspirations came from the Great Lakes region where he grew up. Throughout his lifetime he has been enamored of boats. Sailing vessels, lake freighters, military frigates; any type of boat has captured his imagination. Although Steve has resided in Colorado for many years, his paintings often reflect his love of the Great Lakes, fostered by frequent trips to his hometown near Detroit, Northern Michigan, and Wisconsin.
