Natalie Flemming joins Precision Art Studio Group of Vermont Open Studio Tour Memorial Day Weekend


    I'd like to introduce you to my last guest sitter for the Vermont Open Studio Tour this coming Memorial Day weekend, Saturday, May 26th and Sunday, May 27th, from 10am-5 pm both days. Her name is Natalie Flemming. She is a student at Essex High School, and is currently enrolled in the Academy of Visual and Performing Arts within the High School.
     Natalie's favorite mediums are acrylics and oils, but through the school will experiment with many different art materials and processes. Aside from painting on traditional canvas, Natalie experimented with "wearable art", and paints canvas sneakers finding it a bit challenging at times, but unique and fun. The painting on the left is a very iconic image of Upper Church Street in Burlington. The brush work is very painterly and loose, and quite lovely. The lower piece on the left is a wonderful pen and ink with a surreal like quality with a central vanishing point.
     Natalie is also painting in a realist style, as seen in the last painting, capturing a lovely bird. I love seeing young artists learn how to use new mediums and try new art techniques and styles. Chelsea, my daughter and I are very happy to welcome Natalie to our band of eclectic artists during this Open Studio Tour. Great work, Natalie!
