Demo Nov 5, 2023, Evan Stuart Marshall, Creating a Mixed-Media Abstract Painting

Livingston Arts Association is proud to present Evan Stuart Marshall who will demonstrate “Creating a Mixed-Media Abstract Painting” on Sunday, November 5, 2023, from 2 to 4 p.m., at the Senior/Community Center, 204 Hillside Avenue, Livingston, NJ.

Evan will share principles he teaches in his Mixed-Media Abstracts class (sponsored by Livingston Arts Association) by creating a painting in real time. Topics he will cover include working with classic compositions, selecting a color palette, materials and tools, sources of inspiration, incorporating collage elements and found objects, balance and values, mark making, paint additives, stamping and stenciling, and finding your individual style. Evan will invite members of the audience to demonstrate certain techniques. He will also provide a number of information sheets to attendees. At the end of the demonstration there will be a brief question-and-answer session.

Evan Stuart Marshall is an award-winning mixed-media abstract artist known for his quirky, whimsical paintings. Born in Boston and raised in Sharon, Massachusetts, he lives and works in Roseland, New Jersey.

Largely self-taught, Evan has received numerous awards for his work. His paintings have been featured in many exhibitions, both solo and group, and are held in private collections around the world. His artwork is carried by major online retailers including 1stDibs, Amazon, Artsy, Better Homes & Gardens, Homesquare, Houzz, Kmart, Kroger, Lowes, Made and Curated, Perigold, Pier 1, Sears, Walmart, Wayfair and Zimlay.

We would like to continue to offer these events for free to everyone. However we need to face reality. Costs for hosting these events including the hiring of demonstrators and models as well as refreshments have increased so we will be having a donation box available to help defer some of those costs. We appreciate any support you can offer to help us to continue to provide these demonstrations.
