Oil Painting Demonstration at THE GUILD OF HARWICH ARTISTS
GHA Monthly Meeting: Saturday, March 16, 2019, 2:00p.m.
Harwich Community Center, 100 Oak Street, Harwich 02645
Widely exhibited artist, Joyce Gardner Zavorska, will give an oil painting demonstration at the Guild of Harwich Artists monthly meeting.
Continuing a lifelong connection to earth and ocean, Joyce Zavorskas has exhibited in London, Paris, New York, Philadelphia, California, Boston, and Cape Cod. Recent paintings and monotypes document the constantly changing coastal environment. She
paints in oil from direct observation in nature throughout the year, hiking cliffs, dunes
and waterways to document places that matter.
Zavorskas earned a BFA at Syracuse University, MAT at Bridgewater, and MFA in Painting/Printmaking at MassArt. In winter, Zavorskas paints studio abstract oils based on specific sites, taking time to reflect and experiment. The canvases feature layers of earth pigments imbedded with organic matter, to further engage the viewer with the
wildness of nature. She worked in her loft studio at the Fenway Studios in Boston for ten years, and received commissions from Pfizer Corporation, GivaudanRoure, and Beth Israel Hospital, among others.
Her artwork may be viewed at Left Bank Gallery in Orleans and Wellfleet, Miller White Fine Arts in Dennis, Boston Art on Dry Dock Avenue, and the Copley Society in Boston. Zavorskas has earned numerous First Prize awards in both Painting and Printmaking.
