The Society of Creative Arts of Newtown (SCAN) will welcome Robert Noreika, a prominent watercolorist and illustrator, for a demonstration of landscape painting in watercolor during its meeting on Wednesday, September 10.
The meeting and subsequent program will begin at 7:30 pm. It will be at Newtown Meeting House (lower level), 31 Main Street. The demonstration is open to the public and admission is free.
An internationally acclaimed artist, Mr Noreika’s paintings hang in many corporate and private collections throughout the US, Europe and Japan. His technical expertise has been featured in The Artist’s Magazine and he was awarded first prize in the National Casein and Acrylic Show in 2005.
In June 2013, Mr Noreika was represented in American Art Collector Magazine in an article about Addison Gallery on Cape Cod.
Ion addition, Mr Noreika has received a Gold Medal Founders Award from the CT Plein Air Painters Society and holds Artist Membership in the Salmagundi Club in New York City.
Mr Noreika’s passion for art is matched by a talent to paint a wide variety of subjects and a love of nature. His artwork is highlighted by expressive coastal scenes, intimate woodland pictorials and treks through the countryside.
He has been inspired by many pleasurable memories of his boyhood, which he reportedly remembers as joyfully spent fishing and catching turtles and frogs.
Mr Noreika conducts many workshops in the Northeast, including on Bailey’s Island, Maine, and teaches and lectures throughout New England, where he is represented in numerous galleries. He works in his studio in Rocky Hill, and wherever the beauty of nature catches his eye.
