Gallery Night/Day Pop Up

October 18/19 2019 Gallery Night

We are happy to announce our MARNmember artist for the April Gallery Night/Day is Thomas Buchs.

Thomas attended Layton School of Art and became an Illustrator, creating artwork for advertising
and childrens books for many national and local companies during the last 46 years.
He tries to capture the light and atmosphere of a scene within a few hours. He believes that a painting is not just a two dimensional illusion, but also that of a moment in life, captured by an artist on canvas.
A founding member of Wisconsin Plein Air Painters Association Thomas has found that while doing a painting outdoors he is immersed in the moment, what he means is that later when he looks at the painting he can remember all the things that went on as he painted; the weather, the birds singing, a small animal moving through the scene, people who have stopped to talk to him. The memories are all part of the painting.
