January 7,2015 Members'Day with

Painters6 

 Painters 6

Painters6 represent six artists who together practise the art of portraiture.  They have collectively decided to focus on painting from life, people in the community...bringing artist and sitter closer together sharing the artistic process.

 

The six artists calling themselves Painters6 are Linda Chen, Sheila Ghazarian, Vita Keeling, Florica Laslau, Glen Ou, and Lynda Warne. The six became acquainted when attending Life Drawing at the Varley Gallery. What brought them together was their common interest of the figure and portraiture. 

The backgrounds of Painters6 are individually diverse but all share a formal training in visual arts.
