They meetings are free and open to anyone interested in art.
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
Artist Lisa Muller will talk a little about the transition from ceramics to painting addressing technique, materials and concept. She will share images of the twisting path a painting takes on its way to completion. Ideas of mess making, geometry, the gift of blind alleys, accidental meaning, and fluctuating confidence in the process will come up along with the importance of methods that insure the unexpected.
Lisa has been developing her current style of painting for five years. Prior to painting she was a full time ceramic artist, creating large scale murals, sculpture, and a line of ceramic tiles for wholesale across the country. An MFA from Tyler School of Art prepared her to teach all skill levels. Currently she is an adjunct professor at Albright College and has exhibited nationally from Alaska to Florida. Surface depth, texture, layered color and translucency are some of the traits she pursues. Her figurative imagery borders on the surreal, with elements of abstraction and whimsy.
