ARTeNews – June 2017

Ron’s Palette

If you’re a pastelist, listen up!!

I love the Spring with all these beautiful pastel colors popping out just in time for the International Association of Pastel Societies Convention in Albuquerque. This show is a biennial get together of all the pastel associations from around the world at the Hotel Albuquerque on Thursday, June 8th, Friday, June 9th and Saturday, June 10th. The vendor floor consists of thirty-five vendor booths selling pastel related materials at fantastic prices.  The vendor floor is free admission and open 10 AM to 5 PM. Please come on down if you are interested in pastels and see the largest selection of materials in one place and be able to talk to the manufacturers about their products…bet there’s a color you have never seen before!

Namaste, Ron

Artist of the Month

Pablo Antonio Milan

“Out of deepest sympathy for his unexpected death on May 3, 2017, Artisan is featuring Pablo Antonio Milan as our Artist of the Month. Pablo has been coming into Artisan since the beginning — way back on Canyon Road. We waited on him for supplies, stretched his canvas and laughed with him many times over the years. Pablo will be greatly missed at Artisan and his legacy will live through his daughters and family that loved him, his friends and the art that he created while he was still on this earth. Rest in Peace dear friend! ”  ~ Ron

About

Pablo Antonio Milan, a recognized Southwest contemporary artist, is renowned for his use of bright colors and his acrylic painting techniques, from delicate and bold washes, layering and splattering of paints and powerful brushstrokes and palette knife.

Milan was accepted into his first gallery at 17, and now at age 55, is in both private and corporate collections throughout the world. He has exhibited in galleries from Florida to Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Nevada and California.

The Work

An expressionistic colorist, Milan first layers the paint, at times painting 25 layers on the canvas, only adding the imagery in the final stages. “This gives the paintings depth and the appearance of changing colors throughout the day, depending on the light,” Milan said. “Layering also allows the colors to really pop under the lights of night.”

A prominent and recognized artist, Milan’s paintings are viewed as highly collectible. His distinctive contemporary edge, both in color and style, evolve into a mystical illusion of imagery from the Southwest.

Princeton Brush: NOW Always 40% OFF!

About Princeton Artist Brush Company & NextGen Lines!

Princeton Artist Brush Company is the largest artist brush supplier in North America. Over 25 years ago, Howard Kaufman began a small brush business in the basement of his home in Princeton, New Jersey. He believed that by focusing on innovation, value and the best service, he would always have an appreciative audience for his products. Princeton owns a brush factory with Naohide Takamoto, a 5th generation brush maker. As Naohide Takamoto’s grandfather invented Golden Taklon, Naohide has continued the Takamoto legacy with Princeton’s Next-Gen Synthetics that out perform natural hair for a fraction of the price! These ranges include Neptune, Catalyst Polytip, Elite, Summit and most recently Velvetouch brushes.

Neptune Series – New at Santa Fe store!

When we set out to create a synthetic version of squirrel, we developed a brush that may actually outperform the natural version. Neptune™ is our softest and thirstiest synthetic brush, delivering oceans of color. Experts in natural hair have been incredulous that this is actually synthetic. We are proud to offer Neptune™ in a beautiful range of shapes including mottlers and quills with rich wood tones and sea glass aquarelle handles.

Check either store for availability of all other Princeton Brushes.
