Wooden panels have been used by painters for thousands of years. Texas-based artist Dana Brown of Ampersand Art Supply will examine the option of panel supports for artists. He will provide valuable information about panel supports throughout history and the differences and advantages of using different priming and ground options. He will also discuss technological innovations in wood and panels that help artists to create the most archival artwork possible.
These areas will be discussed in the context of Ampersand's Fine Art panels and Ampersand's unique specialty coatings including Claybord, Aquabord, Gessobord, Scratchbord, Pastelbord, Encausticbord, and the Artist Panel Canvas Textured, Smooth Finish, and Unprimed Basswood. Dana will use visuals and examples as well as quick demos to support the information that is covered."
There will be Ampersand samples provided for attendees.
