Beaufort Art Market, located steps from the waterfront on North Carolina’s Crystal Coast, presents a very busy spring in both the gallery and studio!


In the Gallery
Throughout February, photographers Mike Basher and Scott Taylor will present selections from their wide and varied portfolios. Using an old-fashioned box camera, Basher finds the sublime in natural landscapes, while Taylor’s exceptionally composed images of coastal life evoke a sense of serenity and nostalgia.
 
In April Natalie Italiano, portrait artist and Teaching Fellow with Studio Incamminati, will show off a portion of portraits from her year-long projects, “Portraits of Promise.” Italiano spent two years painting portraits of teenagers, one 4-hour session at a time. Individually, the portraits are both stoic and striking.  Taken as a whole, they create a patchwork of possibility.

In the Studio
March 18-19, Donna Slade will lead a colored pencil workshop.  Slade will introduce the basics of working with the medium with a focus on building bold color and depth with pencil.  Slade is a partner of the New Bern, NC, gallery Fine Art at Baxter’s and is known for her realistic still lifes.
 
April 4-8, Natalie Italiano will present “The Portrait as Art.” This workshop focuses on building procedures to accurately paint a portrait from life. Students will begin with short studies and finish out the week with a two-and-a-half-day portrait session.  Italiano is both an artist and a professional art instructor with honors from the Portrait Society of America, the International Portrait Competition and Artist’s Magazine.
 
Looking Forward
This May, The Art Market will welcome Ken Karlic and Albert Handell.  Both will lead workshops, and Karlic’s work will be in the gallery through early June.  The Art Market will also host a plein air paintout and competition with Karlic May 7th.
