“Drawing Trees” at CAW

Trees are a beautiful and compelling (yet challenging) subject for many artists. Get some focused time to learn about common patterns to look for in tree shapes, how to start and finishing a drawing of a tree, and techniques for simplifying and rendering details. A must for any landscape artist. The class will meet at historic Edgerton Park, home of some of the largest and most beautiful tree specimens in New Haven.

Saturdays October 13 & 20, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm.  Rain date on October 27.

“Artists Find A Place For Rage”

My piece “Middle Passage” was included in this great article by Brian Slattery in the New Haven Independent on the “How with this Rage shall Beauty hold a Plea?” show at Kehler Liddel Gallery (April 26-May 27).

“It takes a second to get your bearing. There’s a woman gazing out at you from Eric March’s canvas, stoic, angry, accusing. As your eye takes in the full image, you see that the funereal flowers aren’t below the woman; they’re floating on the waves lapping a sandy store. You, the viewer, aren’t standing upright. You’re floating in the air just over the waves, looking down. The woman is under the waves, looking up.

The piece is called Middle Passage, and it’s probably the first thing you’ll see when you walk into the Kehler Liddell Gallery on Whalley Avenue for “How With This Rage Shall Beauty Hold a Plea?” a 53-artist exhibit about art and political outrage running now through May 27.”
