Firefly Dream
Thursday, April 12
6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Firefly Dream acrylic on canvas will be taught by guest artist, Rosemary Daugherty of Prairie Rose Studio!

Rosemary is a Tulsa native who traveled across country to Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri, where she found an curriculum for developing skills in fashion design and illustration.  Upon her return to Tulsa, Ms. Daugherty’s landed her first art-related “real job,” as a studio assistant to Tulsa’s nationally known painter, P.S. Gordon. Getting a fly-on-the-wall view of Gordon’s technique, work ethic and business practices took the young artist up a steep and exhilarating learning curve in the world of a successful fine artist. Meanwhile, Ms. Daugherty’s continued her own work and it had taken a turn towards a deeper exploration of the beautiful, shadowy world of the female psyche. Now Ms. Daugherty’s work has branched from this central theme expressed in complex compositions into a sub-theme worked out in very simple compositions. In a series of paintings the artist fondly refers to as her “Nudes and Foods”, Daugherty places a vibrantly colored female figure in a single moment of time enjoying, for example, a warm bowl of noodles. The paintings are a celebration of pure beauty, even as they proclaim a strong sense of feminine identity that is not afraid to invoke the power of the high heel or glorify a womanly curve that defies the current media limits on size.

This will be a great session for those who are unsure of their artistic abilities as Rosemary will be assisting with canvas mapping and some stencil work.
$40/person includes wine & appetizers

More information about Rosemary and her work can be found on her website.
