13th March Demo Meeting

Macquarie Towns Arts Society are proud to announce the March Art Demonstration meeting is with Frank Hodgert.

Frank Hodgert, Castlereigh impressionist is an award winning artist with 10 years experience in tutoring. He teaches most mediums, oils, watercolour, acrylics etc and covers a broad palette of local landmarks with his sought-after paintings. Hodgert has painted “all his life”, but began taking it seriously only 10 years ago, shortly before retiring. He paints landscapes and portraits using oil and watercolours with a simple palette of colours. He needs only a few hours to create them. “I only paint with about six colours,” he said.  Hodgert said his work was stylistically linked to traditional impressionism, a trend popularised by Parisian painters in the late 19th century.

Everyone is welcome to join us for a very special evening with Frank demonstrating as well as the opportunity to enjoy networking with like-minded art enthusiasts.
