October Meeting, Demo and Workshop

Date: October 17

Teacher: Judy Giguere:

Subject:Orchids and Chrysanthemums
The Basics

The delicacy of the flowers of the Chinese Orchid and the resilience of the Chrysanthemum are a
challenge for any artist. Mastery of the basic brushstrokes of each and dexterity to create lively subjects
will be the Oriental Brush Artists Guild demonstration followed by a workshop given by artist and
teacher, Judy Giguere.
Orchid flowers, shaped similar to a Chinese spoon, are delicate and gentle. The study will begin with
how to form the petals and how to design the placement so the flowers are not snarled, but natural. The
next step is to learn the Orchid leaves – a worthwhile lesson for many subjects as it teaches how to
create line with rhythm and depth.
The rainbow bridges of the Orchid leaves, in a surprising turn, form the basis for Chrysanthemum
flowers. Chrysanthemum leaves provide a basic stroke used for many leaves. It is a welcome addition to
any brush painter’s skillset. By providing rules for placement, the Chrysanthemum becomes graceful and
elegant rather than tangled. The intermingling of the techniques of Orchid and Chrysanthemum,
symbols of Spring and Fall respectively, test the skill of any brush painter, but offer the opportunity to
learn and craft dynamic paintings.

General Meeting: 11:00

Demo 11:30 – 1:00
Workshop: 1:30 – 4:00

Please see the Instructors page for more examples of Judy’s work and her bio.

Workshop attendees will be encouraged to paint the arrangement in a style/technique of their choice. Gary will work with each person individually. However, the still life in Chinese brush painting is generally executed in the xieyi (paint the idea) style, with an emphasis on seasonality to communicate the spirit of the moment.

October OBAG Meeting Demo and Workshop
Date: October 20th

Teacher: Judith Giguere
Subject: Small to Large, Plum and Pine
Demo 11:30 – 1:00
Workshop: 1:00 – 4:00

Pine and Plum, "Small to Large" large tree trunks and tiny branches, petals, and pine needles. Learn

dexterity with the dancing brush and its many challenges.

From gnarled, textured tree trunks, prized for their wisdom earned through aging, to small strokes for

branches and forthcoming new life with delicate strokes for plum blossoms. The courageous Plum brings

vibrant new blossoms in the winter snows of January and February. The Plum is admired for its resilience

in adversity. The pine is the brave, wise person that has earned his wisdom through the difficulties of life.

He has survived the tests of time. The pine and the plum are often referred to as “Two Friends”.

The workshop will demonstrate how to hold the brush and get the best ink tones to reflect the character of

these worthy subjects. We will work on small and large strokes as our brush learns to dance! The tree

trunks are challenging in order to get the most effective ink tones for gnarled textures. Shifting gears for

small blossoms and pine needles is difficult as the strokes become lighter and quicker. The motion

comes from the shoulder, not the fingers. It will prove to be a fascinating study in Chinese Brushwork by

master artist, Judy Giguere. Watch for Judy’s publication on Chinese brush techniques to be released

soon!


Publisher, author, and illustrator of two volumes on Chinese brush work released by Maple Tree Studio, Judy Giguere also compiled and wrote a recent book on the history of the Town of Plymouth, CT that was released by Arcadia Publishing, Plymouth Revisited. As Plymouth Town Historian,. she researches and writes articles on the history of the Town of Plymouth that are published on the local website. Her new book, The Art of Chinese Brush Work, is anticipated in the Fall of 2015.

Born in a small Connecticut town, with a deep love of nature that developed at an early age, Judy has always had a focus on the trees, forests, hills, and gentle streams of New England. Her study of Chinese art became a fascination, and she is dedicated to the preservation of the history and traditional artistic techniques of ancient China. Judy holds A.S. and A.A. degrees, both from Tunxis Community Technical College, and a B.S. from Charter Oak College. She has taken private lessons from some of the most prominent Chinese brush painters in the world, including I-Hsiung Ju, Wong Dong Ling, Chien Fei Chang, Frank Liao Ning Yeh, Shen Wei Wei, and Jin Guang Yu. Known throughout the area as an excellent teacher for people of all ages and levels, from nursery school thorough senior citizen classes, Judy is a patient and encouraging instructor. Her work is a delight to anyone who enjoys experiencing nature’s serenity through the study of this unique and ancient art form.

Judy’s paintings have been exhibited at the Kent, CT Art Association; the Art Farm Gallery of Lexington, VA; the Hammond Museum, North Salem, NY; the Plymouth Historical Society, CT; in Washington D.C.; in New York; and in numerous private collections (under the names Giguere and Armbruster).

 

September OBAG Meeting Demo and Workshop

Teacher: Polly Kam-Ping Chan
Subject: Lilies in the gong-bi, or detail, style
Demo 11:30 – 1:00

married and moved to Hong Kong, where she began her study
of Chinese painting under various masters. She now lives in
New York, where she continues to paint. Adept both at
traditional Chinese painting in the detail or gong-bi style and the
more modern, spontaneous Lingnan style, her subject matter
ranges from flowers and birds to figures and landscapes. Polly
is a member of the Hong Kong Chinese Art Club and the
Lingnan Art Association of America as well as president of the
International Chinese Society of Photography & Arts.

May OBAG Meeting Demo and Workshop
Date: May 19

Teacher: Judith Giguere
Subject: “The Four Gentlemen”: Bamboo, Orchid, Plum and Chrysanthemum
Demo 11:30 – 1:00
Workshop: 1:00 – 4:00


Traditional Chinese Brush painting is taught in sequence. Like a child
learning to walk, one must begin with small steps. Bamboo is symbolic
of strength, honesty and character. Its sequence is: stem, knots,
branches then leaves, but when executed properly it creates a bamboo
tree and the first set of basic brush strokes. The Chinese orchid is
gentle, elegant, and refined. It has its own sequence for leaves and
flowers, which teach long, flowing strokes in contract to the short,
choppy strokes of the bamboo. The plum is honored for bringing forth
flowers and new life in February, often with snow on its branches. The
gnarled trunks signify the wisdom of age in contrast to the delicate
flowers. The chrysanthemum is symbolic of the happy retirement of one
whose work worries are done and whose remaining days can be spent
enjoying beautiful gardens. The lush flowers can be complicated, but
once learned, beautiful. The leaves teach a combination of long, full
strokes and the methods to make the leaves turn and twist.

Judy Giguere, noted for her dynamic bamboo and lotus paintings, will
demonstrate and guide participants in learning the techniques of the
“Four Gentlemen,” which encompass the basic elements of Chinese
brush painting. Artists are encouraged to bring their brushes and ink for
what promises to be a very worthwhile learning experience in getting
back to basics.

His work combines traditional Chinese painting style and modern artistic elements, creating a new genre of very beautiful painting that is at the same time realistic and abstract. Utilizing realistic forms of expression to evoke a metaphysically sublime realm that cannot be seen but only felt, he has created a new genre of abstract painting with landscapes that are quiet, lyrical, and deeply comforting.
OBAG members may remember enjoying Mr. Xu's demonstrations of charming bird and flower and animal paintings between the years of 2005 and 2008. We welcome him back in 2014 and look forward to the opportunity of spending a day with this master of modern landscape painting. He is here for a very short time, so be sure to take advantage of this splendid opportunity!
