Lynn Goldstein:
Finding Your Artistic Voice

April 22, 730p-9p

LRA members and non-members are welcome to attend a FREE presentation at our Parkridge Exhibit Location: 10780 Parkridge Drive Reston VA 20190, 4th Floor

Presentation Overview
After we have worked out the technical intricacies of making our art, we are faced with the challenge of finding our voice. After all, we are communicating as artists. This presentation will provide a guide to finding your voice. Lynn will give examples of how she worked to find the direction that she is currently taking in her artwork. Lynn will discuss her history to help illustrate how so many areas of her life and past inform her art today. She will cover composition, format, subject choices and more. After this presentation, participants will be encouraged to delve into their artistic choices to better understand their work and to help develop a consistent artistic voice.

This will be a presentation with a short demonstration of one of Lynn’s painting techniques. This presentation has been given to the Smithsonian Toastmasters and the Maryland Pastel Society.

Contact President.LRA@gmail.com with any questions.

About the Artist
Northern Virginia artist Lynn Goldstein has been creating art professionally for twenty-five years. At first employed as a graphic designer and illustrator before following her passion for painting, Lynn’s work in pastel and other mixed-media has brought her national/international acclaim, particularly for her colorful expressive landscapes. Moreover, her interests include portraiture, abstracts, and photography, as well as a wide variety of other genres, themes, subjects, mediums, and techniques. Her studio is located at the Workhouse Arts Center, Lorton, VA.
She has exhibited widely in nationally juried exhibitions and galleries, and her work is enjoyed in private and public collections throughout the United States. Notably, one of her paintings was selected for the permanent collection in the Jean-Haffen Museum, Dinan, France, upon her completion of an artist residency in 2011.
Lynn has taught many workshops in the mid-Atlantic region, and is currently registering participants for 2013 classes and workshops. Lynn has also taught workshop classes at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, where she also has volunteered her time as a docent for 15 years. This experience has allowed Lynn to study, understand, and pass on the best of America’s art masterpieces.  Clearly, this understanding is embedded in Lynn’s art as well.
