AMY LAY IS FEATURED ARTIST TODAY!!!

Today I wish to share artist Amy Lay!  Her original oils exhibit a vibrancy, a sense of looseness and a comfortable nontraditional style.   Heavily inspired by her experiences of a life growing up in the shadow of the Eagle Cap Wilderness of Northeastern Oregon, Amy developed an intimate love and fascination for the animals and wildlife on her families 5 generation mountain ranch. Primarily self-taught but grateful for her Art Degree from Eastern Oregon University, Amy’s career has evolved from childhood dream to realiity. Now painting primarily in Oils, a bold use of color, powerful yet simple design and an ephemeral quality in her use of medium influenced by years of painting strictly in watercolor has given Amy’s work a highly recognizable and unique signature quality.  Her work dances across the often thick line between realism and abstraction, traditional and contemporary and because of this appeals to a very broad and often newer clientele. Amy is presently being featured with four other female artists in Jackson Hole Wyoming at the National Museum of Wildlife Art!!  An honor in deed.  More of her work can now be found in homes and private collections across the United States and can be obtained exclusively through several Fine Galleries and select Art Shows. SADLY WE ARE REMAIN CLOSED TO VISITORS. Please call for virtual tours and simple questions. Thank you and be well.   Terry Contact Us Email tilting@tilting.com Phone 802-362-3022 Address 24 Highland Ave Manchester Center, VT 05255

JOHN VAN ALSTINE

John Van Alstine is on the blog today!!! John and his wife are fortunate to have wonderful property to shelter in place while each being a productive artist. They consider the situation as almost an “artist’s retreat” – where an artist might go to isolate themselves from the rest of the world and work without interruption (and not distracted- if you keep the News and media off ...)! John embarked on a new bronze “self-distancing" / Covid series, trying to incorporate some of the themes he has worked on for many years (like the “myth of Sisyphus”). His goal was to bring meaning and an artist voice to these very unusual times. He ponders many artists in the past that were able to use dangerous and uncertain times to spur on their creativity (Shakespeare during the black plague, artists during the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic like Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, and many others who were faced with Nazism or the great depression, or even the McCarthy era in the 1950’s). John is highly collected and his work is admired world wide. Following are several insightful videos for those who care to learn more. The first is a recording of the installation of PORTAL in the front of Tilting.   Plus more videos to learn about the art and artist!

JANEL PAHL AND HER BIRDS!

Janel Pahl recently began showing in Tilting at Windmills Gallery and has acquired a great many followers of her works. Following is a bio and statement from her. Janel, in the last thirty years, has traveled the world photographing the beauty of this earth. Recently, she has extended her creative passion to a new art form. This new medium, encaustic, reflects her love of nature in a pure, simple, artistic form. Textures, layering, color and composition are important features in her pieces. Janel Pahl is a Master Photographer, an approved PPA instructor and a national judge for the Professional Photographers of America. In addition, she is a teacher of photography and has inspired aspiring and professional photographers around the world. She has presented her workshops in Canada, Italy, Korea, England, Ireland and throughout the United States. Her images have won numerous national and international awards. Along with her portraits, Janel’s fine art images are published with the Canadian art group Winn Devon. Artist Statement “As I grow older, living life with purpose has become important to me. Creating art with a message is something that is new to me. Our world can be a bit ugly sometimes, filled with anger and hate towards each other. My message is simple. Love. Love which creates beauty. Beauty I find in nature. While I make no attempt to portray my subjects as realistic, I do want my creations to appear as if they have lived somewhere. I do not take life seriously, but my intent is to live life with a passion for it. My art is just that. Living with beautiful art that pays tribute to the natural world reminds us to slow down and helps us reconnect with nature and each other.” SEE JANEL'S ENCAUSTIC PROCESS FOR HER LITTLE BIRDS...... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcYJMxgzDtY&feature=youtu.be Resume; Lecturing affiliate associations and state conventions, 1996-current.

PAUL BATCH IS BLOG ARTIST TODAY!!!!

Why did I seek out Paul Batch's art for Tilting's walls. Because I adore his trees and subtle landscapes. He is a young artist that is very productive and succeeding in a challenging career with a young family to care for at the same time. Quite a juggle! Paul's work has been enjoyed and collected for almost a year from Tilting's walls. I am in love with his pine trees as I grew up under one that I can still hear the wind passing thru the branches and the sound it makes. Thank you Paul for bringing that to me mind. Following is Paul's bio and a wonderful video for your viewing. Paul Batch Bio Paul Batch is a contemporary painter praised for his evocative atmospheric landscapes. His paintings are a poetic response to the fleeting and ephemeral light cast by the passing sun or rising moon. He focuses on transitions, painting various times of day, changing weather, and the rich seasons New England offers. “My work reflects the tone and qualities offered by nature. I strive to convey a felt experience through my art. Though most of my work is representational, I keep myself open to embracing the more abstract elements of each individual scene.” Paul received his BFA and MFA from the Hartford Art School where he studied under the late great Stephen Brown. He is an award-winning member of Oil Painters of America and Portrait Society of America. His work has appeared in numerous publications including the Artist’s Magazine, International Artist and Fine Art Connoisseur. A native of Massachusetts, Paul resides in Massachusetts, with his wife and their two children. SOON THE DOORS WILL OPEN AGAIN. STAY TUNED. Please call for virtual tours and simple questions.
