IN THE STUDIO with Aleah Chapin | figurative oil painting
a virtual art talk and demo
Sunday, December 6 from 2-4 pm EST
This event has already occurred, but you can still purchase the recording.
After purchasing, a link to the recording will be emailed to you within one business day.
This oil painting demo will be held live via ZOOM from the artist’s studio so that you can be up close and personal and listen to Aleah talk about her process, materials, and inspiration while watching her work on a piece from the beginning throughout two hours. Aleah’s layering process is very slow and time-consuming, so in order to see her work from start to finish, much of the demo will be pre-recorded and edited. Plenty of time will be set aside for Q & A with Aleah.
Born in 1986, Aleah Chapin grew up on an island north of Seattle, Washington. She received her BFA from Cornish College of the Arts in 2009 and her MFA from the New York Academy of Art in 2012. Aleah has attended residencies at the Leipzig International Art Programme in Germany and the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire. Recent exhibitions have included the 2016 Invitational Exhibition of Visual Arts, American Academy of Arts and Letters, New York; The Ingram Collection: Bodies, Woking, UK, and a solo show, Within Wilds at Flowers Gallery, London. She has been a recipient of the Willard L. Metcalf Award in Art from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Posey Foundation Scholarship, the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant, a Postgraduate Fellowship from the New York Academy of Art, and won the BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery in London in 2012.
Aleah now lives and paints in the Pacific Northwest, where the people and place of her home are the foundation of her work.
