I will be painting live at the De Young Museum of Art in San Francisco on Sept 4 2015, Friday night from 5pm to 8pm. I will show 5 of my new oil paintings and demonstrate my painting techniques, celebrating the JMW Turner exhibition now showing at the museum. From De Young’s page:
Artist Marius Starkey will paint en plein air inspired by the works of J.M.W. Turner in the de Young’s Osher Sculpture Garden.Marius Starkey responds to the sublime beauty of the light, sky, and trees surrounding the garden using a variety of canvases. Visitors are welcome to draw alongside Marius while the sun sets or the fog drifts in.
Friday Nights at the de Young are after-hours art happenings that include a mix of live music, dance and theater performances, film screenings, panel discussions, lectures, artist demonstrations, hands-on art activities, and exhibition tours. Local artists conduct drop-in workshops, debut new commissions, display their art in the Kimball Education Gallery, and take part in conversations about the creative process. The Café offers a delicious prix-fixe menu and specialty cocktails, and the Hamon Tower observation level is open until 8 pm. Artists-in-Residence, curators, scholars, and arts educators play active roles in making Friday Nights an engaging museum experience.
