AAG Guest Speaker Artist Russ Johnson - November 12th!

The Allentown Art Guild is pleased to announce New Jersey Artist Russ Johnson will be speaking at our meeting on Friday, November 12th 2010 at 7pm. A full-time artist and workshop leader from Princeton Junction, Russ is widely known for watercolors that capture the many moods of Coastal Maine and rural New Jersey.  His signature workshop, “Painting the Masters of Watercolor,” guides participating artists through three days of painting watercolors in the style of JMW Turner, Paul Cezanne, and Andrew Wyeth.  He is presently preparing a workshop focusing on three American masters: Winslow Homer, John Marin, and John Singer Sargent.

Russ’s work ranges from loose, impressionistic sketches to highly realistic drybrush paintings that hearken back to a technique first mastered by Albrecht Durer nearly 500 years ago and later refined by Andrew Wyeth. 

Russ is represented online by The New American Gallery,  He holds both undergraduate and graduate degrees from Wagner College.

You can learn more about him at his website

This meeting will be open to the public for a $10 entrance fee. Meeting will be held at the Jeff Martin Studio, 78 North Main Street, Allentown, NJ.
