The Gallery at Somes Sound is once again proud to host, The Ascending Landscape with Donald Demers! This Workshop is designed to provide direction for the individual artist; recognizing where they are in their artistic evolution and move them to a higher level of consciousness and execution. It will address all creative components of the artistic process such as: idea, design and composition, draftsmanship, color and value arrangement and manipulation etc. It will further include discussions about the philosophy and intention behind the works.
