September 2018

Dane Tilghman, Premier African-American Painter, who paints about sports, jazz and the African-American experience.

Dane is constantly taking his artwork towards new dimensions; he has gone from realism to incorporating his own interpretations of surrealism and elongation. Over the years, Dane has established himself as one of the premier painters of African American Golf Art and Negro League Baseball images. In 1999, a Dane Tilghman baseball image was incorporated into the Baseball Hall of Fame Museum in Cooperstown. In 1989 and 1995, Dane’s art was included in an exhibition at the Afro-American Historical and Cultural Museum in Philadelphia. Dane’s philosophy is best described as bringing out the best of the African American Experience.

October 2018 (Rescheduled from cancelled March 2018 meeting)

Jim Ulrich, Mixed-media Artist and Member of the Dumpster Divers of Philadelphia,

Jim will show examples of his mixed-media assemblages and sculptures. These works incorporate both found materials and hand-fabricated components. His work varies from representational to purely abstract and some of it is functional. Jim will explain how the found objects catalyze an idea, and describe the varied processes and materials employed to refine those ideas into a final piece.

A Pittsburgh transplant, Jim’s work has been exhibited at Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Museum, Andy Warhol Museum and Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Reading’s Goggleworks, the National Watch and Clock Museum, the Phillips Museum of Art and the Berman Museum, just to name a few. He received an A.S. in Fine Arts from Allegheny County Community College, Pittsburgh, PA, and a B.A. in Studio Arts from University of Pittsburgh. In addition to his sculptures, Jim has done cover, inside editorial and spot art for a number of magazines and booklets.

Lisa Muller, Painter and ceramic artist.

Lisa has been developing her current style of painting for three years. Prior to painting she was a full time ceramic artist, creating large scale murals, sculpture, and a line of ceramic tiles for wholesale and retail across the country. Trained at Tyler School of Art, Lisa also taught ceramics at multiple venues to all ages. Surface depth, texture, layered color and translucency were some of the formal traits she pursued through clay and has been expanding in her current body of work. Painting allows the freedom to channel her movement without the limiting influence of equipment or certain laws of physics. Her figurative imagery borders on the surreal, with elements of abstraction and whimsy. Pulling inspiration from every possible corner of personal life experience, she does not work from or toward a specific idea. Rather it’s the activity of painting that sparks her imagination, allowing the material to confound her intentions or shift direction without warning. No linear path leads to a painting’s completion.
