Event Description

MONICA LINARES – A Light Approach – Daily Painting Exhibition. The annual Daily Painting Exhibition started 5 years ago for the artists participating in the class The Happy Habit taught by artist Mónica Linares. Students in this ever-growing class work together in forming the habit of painting every day (or most days!). The participants find this show to be not only a motivation to form the habit of going to their easels, but a reward and a celebration for their effort of painting often…the only way to become better at painting. Unique to this year is that each participant will be exploring the theme LIGHT throughout their series. The size of the pieces is again 8×8” instead of the usual 6×6”. This year, a couple of well-known guest artists join the show; inspiring all members to keep painting.

MICHAEL SCHMITZ lives in North Raleigh with his wife and two young girls. He received his BA in the Fine Arts with a focus in drawing from the University of Dayton in 2005. Additionally, he studied abroad in Florence, Italy for 6 weeks in college. His work is inspired by a wide-range of moments and scenes, each time and place have a unique, outward appearance but also a corresponding, inexpressible, inner essence (yes, even the pile of trash). In the model of Robert Henri, he is not interested in depicting the surface of things — instead, he strives to capture the spirit within each moment and scene.
