Upcoming Demonstrator Schedule
May: John T. Salminen
Salminen has been conducting workshops nationally for many years. He enjoys working with artists at all levels of experience and expertise. He currently offers two workshops, “Abstraction Through Design” and “Realism Through Design”. His workshops include demonstrations, critiques, and lots of individual help. Artists are encouraged to expand upon their current levels of understanding and become more comfortable applying the principles and elements of design to their work.
While perhaps best known for his realistic urban landscapes, John has also gained recognition for his mixed medium abstract paintings, one of which won first place in The Artist’s Magazine’s Art competition in the experimental category. Salminen is a signature member of numerous art societies, including the AWS; the NWS; the Watercolor USA Honor Society; the Transparent Watercolor Society of America; Allied Artists of America; and Watercolor West. He has won more than 200 awards in national and international exhibitions and has been honored with Master Status in the TWSA and inclusion in the American Watercolor Society's Dolphin Fellowship. He is an honorary member of the Jiangsu Watercolor Research Institute in China and is the first American honored with inclusion in the Australian Watercolour Institute.

For more than 20 years Suzanna Winton has captured the essence of the human soul through her watercolor portraits. She is the recipient of over 30 regional and national awards and has been featured in many national and international publications. These publications include Splash 6, The Artist's Magazine, American Artist, Watercolor Magic, Watercolor Basics, Watercolor Artist's and Pratique De Arts (A French Watercolor Magazine). The staff of The Artist's Magazine lists her as "An artist on the rise and one of 20 artists who we believe are destined to be master painters of the future" (01/04)
Her workshops span the United States and she is a frequent teacher at the Cheap Joes workshops in North Carolina. Check out her website to see a sample of her work. This workshop will give us the opportunity to gain experience with painting the nature of people. She starts with the foundation of getting the skin tones correct and will progress through the class with examples that we will emulate as well as having the opportunity to work from our own reference materials.
We are always looking for updates to our artist directory! If you are a working artist in the valley, we would love to add you to our online directory. To be added, please send us the following info: Name, Type of Artist, Studio Address (if applicable), website/blog, and email. If you would like to provide a phone number, please note that this number will be made available to the public.
