Ken Avidor will be at Wet Paint in St. Paul on Thursday February 14, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. for a toned paper presentation. (You can go to the Wet Paint page here and scroll down to find full details of the evening.) If you've been reading this blog at all you'll already know a lot about Ken because I post about him frequently and thanks to him I'm always sketching snow piles. He's an illustrator and cartoonist and a very politically involved citizen. It is always great fun to watch him sketch and hear him tell his harrowing stories of sketching in public. (You can see more sketches by Ken Avidor at UrbanSketchers—Twin Cities, and at The Art of Ken Avidor you can find your way to his many other blogs.)
Ken will be joined by another local artist Tara Tieso who also works on toned paper. You can read about her work at the Wet Paint listing.
Go and hear what they have to say about working on toned papers. There are lots of options for these papers in the marketplace right now.
