I went to Arcadia Gallery this Saturday to watch a demo by Jeremy Lipking. There were at least 50 people crammed into the gallery for the 2 hour demo, and after almost the first hour being taken up by set-up, discussion, and the initial stages of painting, Jeremy was still able to get incredibly far with it (The photo below is the final painting).
In the crowd I also saw Michael Klein, Dorian Vallejo, and several other artists. If you haven't had a chance to view Lipkings current show, try and make it down to the gallery, or view the paintings at Arcadia's site by clicking the "current exhibition" link. Thanks to Steve and the rest of the team over at Arcadia for making this event possible, it was a real treat.
