Art Workshop news

Art Workshop with Steven Lingham and Julie Asher Lee

I often hear people say to me " I wish I could paint" , well here's a chance to learn from two professional artists.

Steven Lingham.

Steven Lingham is a British wildlife artist based in Yorkshire. Working mainly in oils his work covers a multitude of subjects including birds, mammals, insects and landscapes, and now adds still life and people portrait paintings to his repertoire. Steven's award winning distinctive style shows incredible attention to detail, and stunning lighting effects. His work has sold to collectors worldwide either as originals or fine art limited edition prints. Steven is regularly invited to paint commissions and welcomes any enquiries should his work schedule permit.


Julie Asher Lee 

Julie was born in the heartland of America. Her playground was the scenic woods and rolling hills of central Missouri. She was raised in a large family of artists and craftsmen who had a love for the outdoors and were actively involved in local wildlife conservation efforts. Her family participated in the rehabilitation of a variety of animals and birds. It was these early hands-on experiences that afforded her a greater understanding and appreciation for wildlife, something that would follow her into adulthood and her career as an artist. Additionally, her older brothers had a love of history, especially the mountain man culture of the early fur trade. Working along side them, Julie learned how to tan hides and make buckskin clothing. She observed the art of making traditional bows from bodark, in addition to beading deerskin bags and moccasins. In the early 1990's, Julie relocated to the plains of North Texas, a rich and diverse land of big skies and vast prairies. Living on a working cattle ranch has afforded her the opportunity to immerse herself in Texas culture. It is this rich mixture of backgrounds that gives Julie the love for her subject matter and inspiration for her paintings.

Self taught, Julie began her career in 2007 as a scenic artist for local theatre groups, along with painting murals for local businesses. She began teaching at a fine arts school in Fort Worth in 2010. In 2012, Julie decided to take a leap of faith and step out as a full time fine artist. Her career has flourished ever since. In 2014, Julie was commissioned by the Chisholm Trail Outdoor Museum to paint murals and historical depictions for their new attraction, the Big Bear Native American Museum. This led to her obtaining a studio at the same museum, the perfect setting in which to view her artwork from sketch to completion.

Julie specializes in representational western scenes, landscapes and wildlife. She is represented by The Warhorse Gallery in Dublin, TX and The Bare Wall Gallery in the UK. For more information, or to purchase work or contact her for a commission, please email at julie@julieasherlee.com or call 817-487- 2478. You can follow Julie on Twitter @julieleeart, Facebook or Instagram.

Art Club News

Monk Fryston Art Club News
Lost and Found Department
After the (highly successful) Mike Dobson workshop on Monday 14 November, Helen Atkins noticed an item missing from her bag, which meant that she couldn't finish her painting. It was a pot of Brusho white ink/paint. Please check carefully in your art bags to ensure that it wasn't inadvertently picked up in the rush to pack up after the workshop. Please return it on Monday afternoon if you find it, but if it doesn't turn up, we will have to investigate further. 
Christmas market at Monk Fryston Hall Friday 2 December 2016
The Art Club's stall at this event is now booked. Jean Kipling will co-ordinate our stall - of crafts, small pictures etc, by Club members only. Please contact Jean if you are interested in displaying items for sale, on 01977 683982, or emailbarrykipling555@btinternet.com. Items for display are to be delivered to Jean at the Art Club meeting on Monday 28 November, no later please, unless by special agreement with Jean, who will be in charge on the day, but she will welcome any willing helpers. Setting-up will be from 3:00pm on the day, open to the public from 6:30pm. If you can visit the Hall on the Friday evening to help supervise the stall, please do so.
Christmas Lunch at the Watermill Monday 12 December 2016
Marjorie has booked the lunch for 12 December, but she has been away for much of the last few weeks, so she has been unable to receive the bookings. Please therefore confirm your booking asap to Rod Ward, by email or in person. We hope to have the advance order forms for lunch be distributed on Monday afternoons, for completion during November. There will be the usual Christmas menu, but other options are available off the standard menu. You can also book a lunch for a partner or friend if you wish. 
New Art Club website
Malcom Pexton has added more items to the temporary website and invites you to have a look at it on  http://www.yorkww.org.uk/artclub  Any comments to malcolm.pextonHe is in process of registering a new domain name, and setting up a permanent website on a new server. The website won't replace programmes printed on paper, but it will mean that if you lose your paper programme, you will be able to check out what is happening next week. Malcolm wants it to be a useful resource for members, or as an introduction to potential members. He really wants your feedback, so please take the trouble to look. When the finished product is up and running, before the end of 2016, we hope to have the early 2017 programme on the new website.
