Artist Colette Savage will demonstrate painting and pastels on Tuesday at GO ART!
The Batavia Society of Artists welcomes artist Colette Savage on Tuesday, June 14 at 7 p.m. at Go-Art/Seymour Place, 201 E. Main St., Batavia. Colette will demonstrate pastel painting. Non-members are welcome for a $5 fee.
We will also have a very affordable art supplies and picture frame sale before the demo starting at 6:30 p.m., during the break and after the demo. Supplies and frames were donated by the Virginia Carr-Mumford family to help defray the cost of the artist demonstrations.
Award-winning artist, Colette Savage, is originally from Rochester and her love for the area she grew up in is reflected in the art she produces. A lifelong artist, Colette has been painting outdoors for 18 years. Most of his work is done in pastel, a medium of incredible versatility. Colette feels that there is always something new and exciting to discover when painting in pastel.
Colette received her BA from SUNY College in Brockport, but feels her greatest education came from working frequently on location where the challenge of producing a finished painting before the light changed taught her to work faster, more precisely and effectively.
Colette is a member of the Suburban Rochester Art Group, the Greater Rochester Plein Air Painters and the Pastel Society of Western NY.
You can view Colette’s extensive body of pastel paintings on the Internet. Colette maintains several websites: www.colettesavage.blogspot.com and www.colettesavage.weebly.com. You can read more about Colette’s plein air process at www.pastelsenpleinair.blogspot.com/. She recently posted several videos on You Tube, demonstrating several pastel painting tutorials.

In addition to giving demonstrations and workshops, Colette teaches pastel painting, drawing and outdoor painting classes at the Art Stop and through Irondequoit Community Education. Original paintings and prints can be purchased from her Etsy shop at www.etsy.com/shop/ColetteSavage.
When not focusing on art, Colette works at Monroe 2 – Orléans BOCES as a Student Behavioral Assistant and Job Coach, working with young adults with developmental disabilities at the University of Rochester Medical Center .
