MUNSTER | Artist Dale L. Popovich will demonstrate his watercolor techniques at the next meeting of Illiana Artists Inc., set for 6:30 p.m. Monday at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 8955 Columbia Ave.
Guests are always welcome at Illiana Artists gatherings.
Popovich, a member, was second-place winner at the Illiana Artists' 15th Juried Exhibition last August at the Chesterton Art Center.
An award-winning watercolorist and instructor who is passionate about capturing the raw beauty of the American landscape with the fluid stroke of a brush, Popovich has a unique perspective. Temporarily blinded at 20 for 1-1/2 years, he learned to rely on his mind’s eye to sustain him.
After nine-hour brain surgery to remove a cyst on his optic nerve, he had to learn how to walk, talk and write again. With his vision restored, he discovered he could see more clearly than before, easily filtering out the visual “noise” around him to focus on a subject. His paintings began to reflect a certain purity of perception, and this “way of seeing” became the hallmark of his painting.
Trained at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, he teaches at the Palette & Chisel Academy of Fine Arts in Chicago, an association of representational artists with membership by invitation only. He also has workshops, demos, and teaches weekly classes in his own studio in Highland. View his works at www.DalePopovich.com.....
