Saturday : Figure Painting / Slide Show, Live Demo - Quang Ho, with Sherrie McGraw, Jacqueline Kamin and David Leffel

Quang Ho is a thoughtful man. Although his demeanor is quiet and unassuming, in today’s art world he has become an influential giant through the sheer power of his work. David and Sherrie first met Quang when he was fresh out of art school. At once they saw that his talent was most impressive, and following his work since then, it is apparent that he has only continued to grow through constant questioning and experimentation. In describing painting Quang says, “My purpose is simple…help others including myself…awaken and become their highest selves…period.”
No subject matter intimidates him and nothing is off-limits. This fearlessness is what imbues his work with a special quality that is visually riveting.

On Saturday, Quang Ho will do a LIVE demonstration of the figure as he answers questions you may have about his process. As one of America’s top artists, his impressive virtuosic skills as a painter will be a treat to witness. We are excited to share his expertise with all of you in this special workshop on the figure!
