Join us for a meet & greet and demonstration with bronze artist Laura Testé, pastelist Brian Sauerland, and acclaimed award-winning artist Mike Barret Kolasinski.
 
Laura produces bronze figurative sculptures and impressionist oil paintings. Her sculptures recognize the athlete in the female form. Recent figures embody the strength and beauty of dancers inspired by Richard McDonald. She offers agile figurative bronzes to be the siren call, the crescendo cymbal crash, or the quiet concluding couplet. She is immersed in the beauty of the female form. The flow of muscle, bone, and material is a confluence of elegance and power. As a former collegiate athlete, she appreciates the attention, rigor, and control required of dancers and athletes.
 
Nationally recognized pastelist and acclaimed award-winning artist Mike Barret Kolasinski's work can be found in numerous private and public collections. Kolasinski was selected as a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, achieving the Master Circle status with the International Association of Pastel Societies and attaining the Master Circle Member status of the Paint America Association. Mike co-founded the Chicago Pastel Painters, serving as a Board Member and accomplished Master Member. Having studied Illustration and Design at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts, he is largely self-taught in his current career of producing fine art paintings.
 
For Brian Sauerland the array of colors and values that the human eye can perceive is amazing. The inspiration and hopes that mankind will take more time to notice and appreciate the beauty of things in everyday life, is in each of Sauerland's works. Whether it is a piece of fruit in a basket or a sunset casting a long shadow of a tree across the snow, there is beauty everywhere, and Sauerland enjoys the art of capturing it in his snapshots of life.
