The Society of Creative Arts of Newtown (SCAN) will have Frank Bruckman painting a still life in oil at its meeting on Wednesday, November 13, at 7:30 pm. The demonstration will take place in the lower level of Newtown Meeting House, 31 Main Street (at the flagpole). The public is invited to attend, free of charge.
Mr Bruckman lives and paints in Westville Village in New Haven. After graduating from art school in the states, he spent several years in Paris and Madrid copying the masters in the great museums in Europe. While abroad he immersed himself in the local cultures, by learning their language and painting landscapes of the countryside and cityscapes.
Working as a model in Paris and painting throughout the city of lights, he developed further as an artist, resulting in several group shows and some one-person exhibitions in Paris and Spain.
A brief visit to Connecticut in 1990 became a permanent relocation for Mr Bruckman once he discovered that there was endless painting material on the Connecticut shoreline. Whether setting up his easel on the beach, painting portraits, taking off to Mexico or Europe for a landscape painting trip, or composing a still life in his studio, Mr Bruckman is dedicated principally to the art of painting and living.
Reservations are not necessary for SCAN programs, but additional information is available from Ruth Newquist at 203-426-6654.
